    Mount Rushmore: American Experience High on a granite cliff in South Dakota tower the huge carved faces of four American presidents. Together they constitute the world's largest sculpture. The massive tableau inspires awe and bemusement. How, and when, was it carved? Who possessed the audacity to create such a gargantuan work? The story of Mount Rushmore's creation is as bizarre and wonderful as the monument itself. It is the story of hucksterism and hyperbole, of a massive public works project in the midst of an economic depression. And it is the story of dozens of ordinary Americans who suddenly found themselves suspended high on a cliff face with drills and hammers as a sculptor they considered insane directed them in the creation of what some would call a monstrosity and others a masterpiece. Narrated by Michael Murphy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Frontline [#2915H] Wikisecrets It's the biggest intelligence breach in US history - the leaking of more than half a million classified documents on the Wikileaks website in the Spring of 2010.

Manning, who's currently charged with handing them over. Private Manning allegedly leaked the secret cables - along with a controversial video - in the hope of inciting "worldwide discussion, debates and reforms." Assange's stated mission has been to force the US and other governments into maximum transparency through his whistle-blowing website. Through in-depth interviews with Manning's father, Assange and others close to the case, veteran Frontline correspondent Martin Smith tells the full story behind the leaks. He also reports on the US government's struggle to protect national security information in a post 9/11 world. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V

    Nova [#3714H] Dogs Decoded Dogs have been domesticated for longer than any other animal on the planet and humans have developed a unique relationship with these furry friends. We treat our pets like a part of the family and we feel that they can understand us in a way other animals cannot. Now, new research is revealing what dog lovers have suspected all along: dogs have an uncanny ability to read and respond to human emotions. What is surprising, however, is new research showing that humans, in turn, respond to dogs with the same hormone responsible for bonding mothers to their babies. How did this incredible relationship between humans and dogs come to be? And how can dogs, so closely related to fearsome wild wolves, behave so differently? It's all in the genes. Nova investigates new discoveries in genetics that are illuminating the origin of dogs - with revealing implications for the evolution of human culture as well. Nova also travels to Siberia, where the mystery of dogs' domestication is being repeated - in foxes. A 50-year-old breeding program is creating an entirely new kind of creature, a tame fox with some surprising similarities to man's best friend. This film reveals the science behind the remarkable bond between humans and their dogs and spurs new questions about what this could mean for our relationships with other animal species. duration 56:16   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
