    Nature [#3101] Saving Otter 501 On a typical late summer day a baby sea otter washes up on the beach in Monterey, California - hungry, lost, injured. It's a tragic event, but not surprising. California sea otters are struggling. For decades marine biologist Karl Mayer and his small staff have worked unceasingly - one otter at a time - to bring this "keystone" species back from the brink of extinction so it can play its important role in the local marine environment. But the effort has stalled, and no one knows why.
    This is the story of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's 501st attempt to save an orphan otter. From her discovery as a stranded newborn pup crying on the beach through her rehabilitation in secret roof tanks atop the Aquarium, we follow as Otter 501 learns how to dive, hunt, eat, and fend for herself in the wild, where survival is a long shot at best.

Telly exclaims that he is tired of hearing about Ralphie and calls Baby Bear a show-off. He does not want to play with them anymore and storms off. Gordon asks Telly if everything is okay, and Telly explains that he is feeling angry because Ralphie can do things that Chuckie Sue can't, and he wishes he had a parrot just like Baby Bear. Gordon explains to Telly that what he feels is jealous, and that it is normal to feel that way. Telly wants to apologize to Baby Bear but doesn't know how. Every time he sees Baby Bear and Ralphie he gets so jealous he can hardly talk. Gordon suggests a strategy to help Telly calm down. He can try putting his hands on his belly and saying "Stop!"

He was jealous, wishing he had a parrot, too. Baby Bear accepts Telly's apology and explains that they are best friends and Telly can play with Ralphie any time he wants.

Interviews with contemporary performers in both the classical and popular arenas offer shared musical memories and personal favorites.
    The program is designed to reach both long-time music lovers as well as those beginning the journey of exploring the masterworks. For many, this is the music they grew up enjoying and appreciating. For others, the melodies are recognizable from movies, television, commercials and even Fourth of July celebrations. This special explores the origins of the music, stories and anecdotes about the composers and their works, and how so many of the classics have become part of our common culture.
