    Moyers & Company [#204H] Are Drones Destroying Our Democracy? * In the fight against terrorism, the American military's escalating drone program has become the face of our foreign policy in Pakistan, Yemen and parts of Africa. And while the use of un-manned drones indeed protects American soldiers, the growing number of casualties - which include civilians as well as suspected terrorists - has prompted a UN investigation into both the legality and the deadly toll of these strikes. This week, Bill explores the moral and legal implications of using drones to target our enemies, both foreign and American. His guests include: Vicki Divoll, a former general counsel to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and former deputy legal adviser to the C.I.A.'s Counterterrorism Center; and Vincent Warren, Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights. < br />* Also on the show, Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi on the continuing lack of accountability for America's big bankers. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    Martin Clunes: The Lemurs of Madagascar The island of Madagascar is home to an abundance of unique wildlife species - including 101 endangered types of the small primates known as lemur. They live only on Madagascar, and one by one, they are dying there. In this program, British actor Clunes (Doc Martin) travels to the island to explore and expose the urgent plight of this rare - and endearing - species. In this beautiful and deeply moving film, Clunes travels down to the Indian Ocean to witness what many fear is the lemur's last stand. duration 46:05   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Life of Mammals [#103Z] Plant Predators Some of the biggest predators to walk the earth face a constant battle - their prey is heavily armoured, often indigestible, sometimes even poisonous, and what makes this struggle between predator and prey the more remarkable is that these predators do not prey on animals, but on plants... Although we live on a green planet, eating plants presents one of the greatest challenges to mammals, shaping them and their lives in the most extraordinary ways.
    The sloth is 'half blind, half deaf' and moves at a snail's pace - an extreme example of what can happen to you if you live on nothing but leaves! Plants arm themselves with deadly weapons, from razor sharp spines to deadly poisons, but plant predators are not deterred. The elusive tapir of the South American jungle visits secret clay licks in search of a natural antidote to the poisons. The pika, or rubble rabbit of the Canadian Rockies has found a way to make poisons work to its advantage, exploiting them as a natural preservative.
    But sometimes the problem is not what's in your food, but what is not - we bugged the caves of Mount Elgon to reveal startling images of underground elephants mining for salts deficient in their green diet. Even the great wildebeest migration is now understood to be driven by the need for minerals... The next great battle that plant predators face takes place on the open plains - behind every plant-eater lurks a meat-eater.
    For once we see the hunt from the plant predators' point of view; wrap-around vision, ears that rotate 360 degrees and elongated limbs make it harder for them to be caught than most wildlife films would make you think... Plant predators are equipped with dangerous weapons used in the greatest battle of all - with each other. We witness the drama of the annual bison rut in the Badlands of North America, discover the secret of the battering rams of the big-horned sheep of Canada, and analyse the fighting technique of horned animals as they ram, wrestle and stab their opponents. Amazing to think that all these extraordinary behaviours stem from the apparently simple act of eating leaves...

    Sesame Street [#4314H] Sesame Street-O-Saurus Grover, Elmo, and Rosita are imaging that they are Paleontologists, scientists who dig through dirt and stones to find fossils. Chris explains that fossils are what are left of a plant or an animal that lived a long time ago. The first thing they find in the dirt is a colorful, metal soup ladle which Grover thinks is a bone from a dinosaur. Next, they find two clothespins that Grover believes came from dinosaurs, as well. Elmo and Rosita find a bunch of other things, too. Chris breaks the news to them that these things are not fossils, because not everything old that is found in the dirt is a fossil. Grover is disappointed that they have zero fossils and that he won't be able to build a dinosaur out of what they found. Elmo suggests that they build a dinosaur even without fossils. Chris adds that they can use what they found in the dirt to build a dinosaur model. First, they can design a model, which means to think about and plan to put something together in a certain way before you build it. Elmo thinks the ladle looks like a dinosaur's head, Rosita thinks the spring looks like a dinosaur's tail, Grover thinks keys look like a dinosaur's arms, the spoons and clothespins could be legs and feet, and the xylophone could be the dinosaur's body.

We're going play with some animals and we'll learn about some really interesting gardening projects going on here.
    We'll also meet playwright and film director Luis Valdez, the man behind the camera for the films Zoot Suit and La Bamba. Valdez spent part of his childhood not far from here as a migrant farm worker. We'll also meet activist and attorney Carol Ruth Silver. During the early days of the Civil Rights Movement she was one of the original Freedom Riders.
