    Nature [#2609] Kilauea: Mountain of Fire Kilauea, on Hawaii's Big Island is the world's most active volcano. Its latest eruption began in 1983 and it hasn't stopped since. Since that time it has created 544 acres of new land and has consumed 200 homes. But as we watch nature's own fireworks display and witness the devastation wrought by flowing lava, we've also been able to observe a process that's central to life on these islands. The most spectacular moment of creation is when lava pours into the ocean creating new land and it is here that filmmaker Paul Atkins finds himself getting a shot few have ever filmed - the cataclysmic meeting of 2000 degree lava and 75 degree ocean water - a sight to behold. duration 56:39   STEREO (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3710H] Mt. St. Helens Back from the Dead When Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980, every living thing in the blast zone was buried beneath 300 feet of avalanche debris, covered with steaming mud and, finally, topped with a superheated layer of frothy rock from deep within the earth. It seemed as though Mount St. Helens might remain a wasteland forever. When biologist Charlie Crisafulli first flew over the disaster zone, finding no sign of life, little did he realize that his own life would be forever changed. Crisafulli has remained at the site for 27 years, documenting the dramatic return of plant and animal life to the barren landscape and pioneering a new understanding of the interaction between geologic forces and the life surrounding the mountain. Nova brings viewers on a journey of a landscape brought back from the dead. duration 55:01   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    War Against Microbes, The Producer Michael Schwarz (Mystery of Memory, The Body's Secret Army, Botany of Desire, Muhammad: Legacy of A Prophet), brings his gift for unraveling complex topics to the subject of infectious diseases. In the past century, the tremendous expansion of scientific knowledge about the causes of infectious diseases has helped to more than double average global life expectancy. But as far as we've come, we still face some very daunting scientific challenges. The War Against Microbes takes viewers on an eye-opening journey through some of the most important advances in our understanding of infectious diseases, focusing on the relentless efforts of Nobel Prize laureates to uncover the mysteries of the body's smallest adversaries. From the dawn of bacteriology up through today's cutting-edge research, each generation of scientists continues to pursue the same question: can we one day declare victory in the war against microbes? The filmmakers travel to California to examine the effects of polio on a survivor and then look at the work of generations of scientiest who defied conventional wisdom as they searched for a vaccine. In Australia, we meet Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, who in the 1980s encountered steep resistance when they found evidence that bacteria called helicobacter pylori caused stomach ulcers - a discovery that flew in the face of conventional medical wisdom. But nearly two decades later, Marshall and Warren were rewarded for their tenacity with the 2005 Nobel Prize. The War Against Microbes charts both the progress we've made in understanding infectious diseases and the challenges that still remain. As Barry Marshall puts it, "we have come a very long way in infectious disease science over the last hundred or so years. But don't assume that everything has been discovered." duration 28:52   STEREO TVG
