    When The World Answered Nearly 50 years ago, torrential rains in northwestern and central Italy caused massive flooding throughout the area, including Florence. As the waters rose, so did concerns about the city's treasured masterpieces. And then the worst-case scenario became reality: 14,000 works of art and rare books were destroyed.
    Based on the book When the World Answered: Florence, Women Artists and the 1966 Flood by Linda Falcone and Jane Fortune, this documentary looks back at the worldwide Herculean efforts to save and restore the artwork of Florence. It also explores modern-day efforts to recognize a group of women artists who made significant contributions during Florence's time of need. Filmed on location in Italy, the film features archival footage and a new interview with legendary Italian director/producer Franco Zeffirelli, whose 1966 documentary Florence: Days of Destruction showed the flood's impact and helped rally the world to help.

The kids all get involved to help create the perfect date night. Curriculum: It's hard to have a picnic anywhere in the Solar System besides Earth - here we're not too near or too far from the Sun, so the temperature is just right, plus we have liquid oceans and a breathable atmosphre. Anywhere else, you'd definitely have a hard time enjoying a picnic outdoors. Face on the Fritz - When the kids are trying to build a new pet house for Sunspot and FACE 9000 gives them mixed-up directions, they learn that it is time for FACE 9000 to get upgraded.

The kids need to learn how to give instructions in the way computers understand, putting them in charge of using technology in an active way. When FACE 9000 comes back, they have learned to appreciate him, as well as to be more independent thinkers. Curriculum: Technology has advanced greatly since the days of the giant computers that guided man to the moon in 1969. However, even though technology is very useful, it is still a tool, not an end in itself, and people still need to know how to monitor and program it. duration 28:55   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
