    Nature [#2706] Clash: Encounters of Bears and Wolves What happens when two great predators come face to face in Yellowstone? The grizzly and the wolf -- they couldn't be more different. The bear is a loner, ranging far and wide in search of a rich variety of resources. The wolf hunts to survive and finds its strength in speed and teamwork. Their strategies have taken them to the very top of Yellowstone, and it's no simple matter when they meet. In every encounter, the opposition must be measured, strengths must be tested, and risks must be carefully weighed. Each time, one of them will have a tactical advantage -- but which one, and when? What emerges as each remarkable scene unfolds, is the keen awareness that runs through all of Yellowstone. Elk and eagle, coyote and raven, otter and owl, every creature must assess, decide, and act -- to fight or to flee? It's all in knowing your own strengths and limitations in the heat of the moment in Yellowstone. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Glacier Park's Night of the Grizzlies For nearly 60 years, rangers at Glacier National Park could never verify a fatal bear attack... until one summer night in 1967. The dramatic and tragic story of that night, and how it eventually influenced the fate of the grizzly bear in the continental United States, takes center stage in the historical documentary GLACIER PARK'S NIGHT OF THE GRIZZLIES. Veteran film and television actor J.K. Simmons (Law and Order, Juno, Up in the Air, The Closer) narrates the special. The story begins on the afternoon of August 12, 1967, when seven young park employees set off on long hikes to two remote areas. That night, grizzlies would attack all of the campers, killing two young women - Julie Helgeson and Michele Koons - and severely mauling one man, Roy Ducat. The other four escaped by climbing trees. For everyone involved, it remains an unforgettable night of crisis, intense fear, bravery and, ultimately, grief. Archival material, photographs, re- creations and gripping on-camera interviews with survivors, witnesses, family members, journalists and biologists, provide a complete account of those events. That night also marked a watershed moment for bear management in the 21st century. Post-World War II, Americans viewed grizzly bears - the most powerful omnivores on the continent - as relatively safe tourist spectacles. In the years following the fatal attacks, grizzlies were hunted to near extinction. GLACIER PARK'S NIGHT OF THE GRIZZLIES provides a broad historical perspective about bears, the concept of wilderness in the American psyche and the sweeping changes in wildlife management which culminated in the landmark Endangered Species Act. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG

    Yellowstone: Land to Life People come to Yellowstone primarily because of the unusual thermal features and opportunities to view wildlife, often not realizing they are standing on one of the world's largest active volcanoes. This film presents an interpretation of the sweeping geologic story of Yellowstone, from glaciation to mountain-building to the gigantic caldera of a volcano. "Yellowstone: Land to Life" was filmed over two years in all four seasons and delves deeply into the significance behind the scenery. It also explores the bonds between the landscape and biology -- how Yellowstone's geology influences where life exists and how it evolves. The film also contemplates our connection as well: humankind's relationship to Yellowstone, the world's first and most famous national park. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Life of Mammals [#104Z] Chisellers Plants usually protect the goodness inside their seeds with very hard outer cases - as David Attenborough testifies after he has tried and failed to crack open a tropical nut by bashing it with a rock. 'Believe it or not,' he proclaims, 'there are mammals here in Panama which can break into these nuts with their bare teeth!'
    They are agoutis, terrier-sized rodents, which chisel through the rock hard shells with their remarkable front teeth, as if it was butter. The reward is a protein-rich kernel, and all rodents from the tiniest harvest mice to the mighty beaver, have these special, constantly growing inscisor teeth, with chisel sharp enamel on their front edges, in order to get at food of this kind.
    Many rodents, like squirrels, carry away excess nuts one by one to bury them for eating later on. But the seeds of plants in the Mojave desert are so tiny, that kangaroo rats use special cheek pouches, like shopping bags, to carry enough seeds back to their burrows. The Gambian pouched-rat has the largest pouches of all, so that when they're stuffed full of date palm nuts the rats can hardly squeeze through the entrance to their burrows!
    Some rodents use their special front teeth to chop off vegetation or chew bark instead. Canoeing in Wyoming, David Attenborough watches beavers fell massive trees with their front teeth and then build dams to rival anything that humans can achieve. In the deep cold-water ponds that are created, the beavers store branches and leaves underwater, so that even when its iced over they have a store of fresh food to take to the safety of their lodge throughout the winter. Naked mole rats stay underground all their lives finding roots and tubers by tunnelling hundreds of metres from their breeding chambers.
    Rodents are renowned for being prolific breeders and sometimes, in Australia, mice cause such plagues that the farms and are literally overrun by carpets of running mice! The largest rodents in the world, capybara, also occur in huge numbers on the swampy grasslands of South America. Grazing in great herds, they look remarkably reminiscent of the antelopes to be seen on the grassy plains of Africa, in the next programme.

    Sidney suffers from cataplexy, an unusual medical condition where he becomes literally paralyzed when he is overcome with emotion. Rather than take that chance, he relies on impersonal sexual encounters to meet his physical needs. One night he is embarrassed to discover the call girl at his front door is an old friend from high school. The film was done as part of a competition where the film went from concept to screen in just 72 hours. Directed by John Salcido. Principal cast: Dave Tenenbaum and Michelle Noh.
    CROSSWORD - Ireland
    Heather is single with very few friends except for the barmaid in the pub she frequents after work everyday. Her favorite pastime is doing crossword puzzles. On the eve of her 40th birthday, she has a strange experience when all the answers to the day's crossword seem to be around her. Is it magic, coincidence or something else? In a crossword -- just like in life -- when lines meet and paths converge it is not a matter of luck, but rather part of a greater plan. The film was directed by Vincent Gallagher. Principle cast: Louise Lewis, Mark O'Shaughnessy, Maire Hastings, Andrew Bennett, and Kevin McDonough.
