Frontline spent months following three young girls who are growing up against the backdrop of their families' struggles against financial ruin.

    Sol Solomon Tapatia Uyarasuk was a charismatic young Inuk and an amateur acrobat, musician and poet, who in recent years had become a rising star in the world of circus arts. A member of troupe Artcirq (Arctic Circus), Sol traveled around the world performing in Mali, Mexico, across Canada and in France.
    His upbringing, however, was unusual. Sol was raised by his grandmother, Rachel Uyarasuk, who lived a nomadic lifestyle on the territories of Baffin Island in Canada. The values imparted to Solomon, raised in the arts and traditional Inuit culture by his grandmother, deeply influenced him.
    This documentary is a moving tribute to Solomon, who was found dead in the Igloolik police station in 2012 at the age of 26. The locals suspect murder but the police suggest suicide. Solomon's family and friends are still waiting for an official answer regarding the circumstances of his death.
    As the documentary investigates the truth about Solomon's death, it sheds light on the underlying social issues of Canada's North that has resulted in the region claiming one of the highest youth suicide rates in the world. The film explores how the pain of suicide has affected the people in these small northern communities and their resilience and determination to create a better future for their people.

  • 6:30 am
    Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! [#109H] A Tale About Tails/Sticky Situation * A Tale About Tails - Nick and Sally are playing "Tape the Tail on the Donkey" when they wish they had tails of their own! Well it just so happens that the Cat knows a lot about tails! He brings them to the Jungle of Wagga-Tag-Tail where they meet a number of animals with very different tails. When Nick and Sally get to test out all of these tails for themselves, they learn that different tails can do different things!
    * Sticky Situation - Sally and Nick are playing the drums on overturned buckets when Nick breaks his drumstick! Luckily, the Cat knows someone who is a stick expert, his friend Betty Beaver!

  • 7:00 am
    Ready Jet Go! [#128H] Beep and Boop's Game/Constellation Prize "Beep and Boop's Game" - The kids help Dr. Rafferty and Bergs get Mars Rover BOOP over a ravine on the red planet by simulating actions in the DSA "Mars Yard" using BEEP (Boop's sister)! Trial and error leads to success. Along the way, the kids learn just how scientists communicate with far away rovers - through satellites above Mars. The kids then solve a new mystery set up by Bergs, figuring out that Beep and Boop are communicating about... a game of Mars/Mars Yard tic-tac-toe they're playing! Curriculum: A good amount of communication between Mars and Earth goes through satellites. Rovers send images, along with instrument and status data, back to Earth. Extrapolating from the data, the scientists send commands to the rover, which can take 4-24 minutes to be received due to the distance. Rovers are often on their own, carrying out commands and sending image data to overhead satellites. The rover's commanders may tell it to move toward a new rock, grind a rock, analyze a rock, take photos, or gather other data with other instruments. "Constellation Prize" - When Mindy thinks she's found her own star, the other kids explain how stars are labeled and identified by constellations. Mindy eventually learns that she hasn't found a new star, but that she CAN create her own version of a constellation by connecting patterns in the sky. Curriculum: A constellation is a group of stars that make an imaginary shape in the night sky. In different parts of the world, people have made up different shapes out of the same groups of bright stars, like a game of connect-the-dots. In the past, constellations were useful for navigating at night and for keeping track of the seasons. They are now useful for identifying parts of the sky astronomers are studying. Because all the stars are at different distances, the constellations would look totally different to inhabitants of another planet orbiting another star. duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

And Nature Cat has a sure-fire way to attract the birds - the bird feeder! But things take a turn when a grey squirrel named Cruiser breaks into the birdfeed and takes all the birdseed for himself. Squirrel Power! Can Nature Cat and the gang build a bird feeder that Cruiser can't conquer and save their day of backyard bird watching? Onward and Pondward - Nature Cat and his pals meet a Little Duckling who's in a hurry to leave his pond home - for good! But why would a Duckling want to leave such a beautiful place? It's pond-tastic! The truth is, the Duckling is scared of water! Water...why'd it have to be water? Maybe Nature Cat and the Duckling can try to overcome their fear of water together? Tally ho! duration 28:46   STEREO TVY

When the stripes accidentally blow away, George runs around the countryside to retrieve them. Can George reassemble the flag in time for the big unveiling?
    * Fearless George - "Fearless George" and his comrades (aka Steve and Betsy) are playing a make-believe adventure with George's toys.
