    Nature [#2708] Invasion of the Giant Pythons Florida's Everglades National Park is one of the last great wildlife refuges in the United States, home to numerous unique and endangered mammals, trees, plants, birds and turtles, as well as half a million alligators. However, the Everglades is also the dumping ground for many animal invaders over 15 species of parrot, 75 kinds of fish and 30 different reptiles from places as far away as Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. All of the intruders found their way into the park either by accidental escape from pet owners or intentional releases by people no longer wishing to care for an exotic species. Add to the mix tens of thousands of giant pythons, snakes that can grow to 20 feet and weigh nearly 300 pounds, some released into the wild by irresponsible pet owners, some escapees from almost 200 wildlife facilities destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. The predatory pythons slithered into this protected wilderness and thrived, and the refuge has consequently become less of a haven and more of a killing ground every day since then. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Gina says they need to be a little creative and think of ways they can lift Snuffy. As they observe what's around them, Elmo points out that Chris is lifting a piece of pie out of a plate with a spatula.

    New Tricks [#403] Ducking and Diving When an armoured security van is found at the bottom of a lake, a link is made to Michael Dudley who disappeared 17 years ago. Michael's disappearance coincided with the murder of Marie Sinclair. With the discovery of the van revealing that it was ransacked whilst underwater, and with Marie's murder remaining unsolved, the team decides to reopen the case. Andrew Sinclair (Marie's husband and owner of the security firm and the chief suspect at the time) continues to insist he is entirely innocent, but his story doesn't quite add up. A visit to the new owner of the security firm, Steve Palmer, doesn't provide Gerry Standing with records he was hoping to find, but it does result in Palmer making the cash-starved Standing an offer he can't refuse. Brian Lane looks into the dive clubs that would have had access to the lake over the years, which leads him to diving instructors Martin Viner and Trisha, but that appears to be another dead end. Frustrated by the pace of the investigation, Pullman decides to make the dive herself to take a closer look at the van.

In the last year of his life, as he moved toward Memphis and assassination, Dr. King announced the Poor People's Campaign to demand an "Economic Bill of Rights" for all Americans, regardless of color. But nearly a half-century later, that dream is still a dream deferred. This week, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Taylor Branch and author and theologian James Cone join Bill to discuss Dr. King's vision of economic justice, and why so little has changed for America's most oppressed.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2424H] April 5, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    News Panel:
    PRESIDENT OBAMA IN BAY AREA - President Obama visited the Bay Area for the first time since his re-election to raise money for Democratic Party candidates and to gain support for returning Rep. Nancy Pelosi to the position of House Speaker. In San Francisco, the president was met by environmental activists protesting the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Meanwhile in Silicon Valley, newcomer and fellow Democrat Ro Khanna says he will challenge six-term Congressman Mike Honda, going against the wishes of the president. The race is expected to be one of the most heated in the 2014 election.
    BAY BRIDGE TANKER CRASH REPORT - The California Board of Pilot Commissioners has suspended the license of pilot Guy Kleess, who was found responsible for crashing an oil tanker into a western-span tower of the Bay Bridge this past January. Also, following the discovery of faulty steel rods on the new eastern span of the bridge, Caltrans investigators are still assessing what caused them to break and whether other parts produced by the same manufacturer may be at risk of malfunctioning. < br />TESLA MOTORS GEARS UP - Palo Alto-based electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors has unveiled its first financing plan to make their nearly $70,000 Model S more accessible to consumers. With financing from Wells Fargo or US Bank, drivers would only need a 10% down payment. The ten-year old company also announced it is profitable for the first time. The news initially sent stock prices soaring, but Wall Street seems unconvinced that the new loan program will lead to a significant increase in consumer demand.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Tom Vacar, KTVU News; and David R. Baker, San Francisco Chronicle
    DANNY GLOVER, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF THE HOUSE I LIVE IN - Actor and San Francisco native Danny Glover talks about The House I Live In, a new documentary he championed as executive producer. The film takes a critical look at the so-called war on drugs and won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance this year. "It's really not a war on drugs, it's a war on people," Glover explains to KQED's Joshua Johnson.
