    Spark! [#413] Playing with Technology We live in an electronic world - turntables, microphones, digital displays, microchips. Some artists are driven by the possibilities of manipulating these things, and in this episode, we explore the way that they creatively unite art and electronics.

    * Natural found objects such as flowers and sand are juxtaposed with pieces of technology in Joe Mangrum's large and intricate design sculptures.

    History Detectives Special Investigations [#101] Civil War Sabotage? It was one of the worst maritime naval disasters in US history. Officially, the death toll was 1500. Unofficially, the count may have been far higher. When it mysteriously exploded on April 27, 1865, the Mississippi steamboat USS Sultana was packed with Union soldiers. The war had ended that month; at every stop more and more men clamored to board the homeward-bound ship, which blew up mid-river. However, the story of the sinking quickly vanished from the papers. What really sank the Sultana? Was it Confederate sabotage? Securing the original investigative report and its archives allows the team to forensically examine and scientifically test theories of the boilers' failure. The team also researches the stories of a Confederate agent and spy who burned Union ships on the Mississippi and was an expert in using "coal torpedoes" and a former Union inspector's deathbed revelation. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Frontline [#3205] To Catch A Trader In just over two decades, Steven A. Cohen has amassed a gigantic fortune: a sprawling 35,000-square-foot mansion on Connecticut's gold coast; a $62-million beach house in the Hamptons, and several New York apartments, including a $115-million midtown duplex - all of them furnished with some of the world's most expensive art. How did he do it?
    From small-time options trader to King of Wall Street hedge fund managers, Frontline investigates Cohen and his company, SAC Capital, and other Wall Street characters with never-before-seen video and incriminating FBI wiretaps. The film is a crime drama with a cast of colorful characters: from cheating traders with their "Mr. Whisper" sources to some of the most respected figures in American business. To date, the government has convicted 76 people of securities fraud and conspiracy. Will Cohen be the next to fall? Frontline tracks an ongoing seven-year investigation into the largest insider trading scandal in US history.

    Sesame Street [#4260H] Observe, Record, Annoy Oscar is taking a computer class in Grouchology where the golden rule is to observe, record, and annoy. The first question that he must investigate is "What do worms like to squirm on best?" Professor Messla tells him he must set up an experiment where he observes (watches closely and carefully), records (writes down what he discovers), and annoy someone while he is doing it. Oscar heads over to Hooper's where he pours coffee grinds and olive oil all over Alan's nice clean counter. He observes the worms in the mess, and marks down what he sees on his chart. He succeeds in annoying Alan, and concludes that most of the worms like to squirm in the olive oil. The second question to investigate is "What stinky smell will make people scram?" He finds Gina and Leela playing cards and tries to make them scram with garlic, an old piece of cheese, and finally his own stinky socks. He observes, records and annoys them both as they finally flee holding their noses from his smelly socks. Oscar's final question is "What noise is loud enough to wake up Luis and Maria?" He blasts a vuvuzela horn and observes and records that it wakes up Maria, but not Luis. As she shouts at Oscar to let her get some sleep, Luis wakes up from her yelling. Oscar concludes Maria's shrill screaming is the loudest noise of all. He reports what he discovered in each experiment to Professor Messla and collects his stinky diploma in Grouchology. Now it's time for a loud, annoying party. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
