    Omni Health Revolution with Tana Amen, RN and Dr. Daniel Amen, MD This program features psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife, neurosurgical intensive care nurse Tana Amen. It is designed to help viewers take control of their physical and mental health using the science of nutragenomics - a big word, but it's very simple.
    Nutragenomics tells us that the foods you eat talk directly to your genes. You have the choice to eat in a way that turns on genes that keep you healthy or make you sick. Most people think of their genes like an evil monarchy that condemned them to be sick. Daniel and Tana Amen turn that notion on its head to give viewers much more control over the health of their bodies and minds. The Omni Health Revolution is a bipartisan plan that bridges the gap between strict vegetarian diets and extreme high protein diets, with a program that is based on 70% plant based foods and 30% high quality protein.

    Thomas & Friends [#1001H] Look & Listen Thomas & Friends has sparked the imagination of young children for generations with classic stories of adventures from the railways on the Island of Sodor. Born from a literary tradition, the CG-animated series supports children aged 2-5 as they develop important social-emotional skills and helps to build an early foundation for preschoolers' success. Thomas & Friends is based on the much-loved books by Rev. W. Awdry, who created Thomas the Tank Engine to entertain his young son Christopher when he was in bed with the measles. The series features Thomas, a true blue engine friend who proudly wears the "#1" on his side. He's joined by a cast of track stars, including James, Percy, Emily, Henry and Gordon, as well as Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway, who keeps everything running smoothly. Thomas's world is a place with a strong community spirit, typified by a universal willingness to embrace good manners and hard work -- and a desire to be "really useful." Each episode -- comprised of two animated stories, a live-action segment, and a music video -- is designed to delight children while helping to foster their social and emotional development. As young viewers join Thomas and his engine friends on exciting adventures, they experience timeless life lessons of discovery, cooperation, and friendship. duration 28:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Sesame Street [#4227H] Fetch The Letter I Telly and Elmo are sitting at a table building letters with their new "Letter of the Day" kit. They use one long piece and two little pieces to make the letter "I". Elmo and Telly imagine things that begin with the letter "I" such as igloo, insect, and iguana. Suddenly, Iggy the dog, who is supposed to be fetching a stick with Rosita, comes and takes the letter "I!" Telly and Elmo chase Iggy, but can't catch him. How will they get him to drop their letter "I?" They think hard and decide to go incognito, or in disguise, as leafy bushes. The bushes make Elmo's nose itch. When he sneezes, he blows their cover and scares Iggy. They think again and come up with another idea: they will tickle Iggy's nose. This works, but the letter "I" goes flying, bounces off of Telly's head, and lands back in Iggy's mouth. They think again and decide to give Iggy doggy ice cream. Just when Iggy goes to eat it, Telly tries to grab the letter but Iggy snatches the letter and runs off. As they continue chasing Iggy, they run into Rosita. Iggy returns the letter to Rosita, since he thought they were playing fetch the whole time! Telly and Elmo realize Iggy inspired them to think of lots of "I" words and they sing all about the incredible Iggy! THEME: Literacy I / 20 duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Life of Mammals [#102Z] Insect Hunters When mammals first appeared, insects were abundant on earth, and mammals made meals of them. Crucially, they were the first creatures able to make and regulate their own body heat, so they could hunt insects in the cool of the night, when most of the predatory dinosaurs were asleep. The modern musk shrew gives us an insight into how these first mammals might have lived. After the dinosaurs so suddenly disappeared, the mammals were free to conquer new territories. We meet shrews that dive under water, moles that swim in sand, and extraordinary creatures that gather their prey by running at speed down trail systems above and below ground.
    It's hard to sustain a large body by catching insects one by one but about 50 million years ago, some of them broadened their diet. The hedgehogs and armadillos mix their insects with fruit and birds eggs. Halfway through the history of the mammals, insects started to build huge nests, protected with walls of baked mud - these were impenetrable to any creature of the time. But with pangolins and giant anteaters, the mammals rose to the challenge. These spectacular animals survive entirely on a diet of social ants and termites - they have the biggest claws of any mammals, long tongues and the ability to protect themselves against angry insects and large predators. But many of the insects could fly and were out of reach for ground dwelling mammals.
    But way back in mammalian history - probably when the dinosaurs still roamed - one mammal took to the air. Today, the earth holds a bewildering array of insect eating bats. We even meet one - the Natterers bat - that can take spiders from their webs without becoming tangled in the silk. And another, in New Zealand, that has retraced its origins and returned to the ground to forage like a shrew. The insect eating mammals were there at the very beginning of the mammals and are still thriving today, they are one of the great success stories in The Life of Mammals.

But the NFL is under assault as thousands of former players claim the league has covered up football's connection to long-term brain injuries. In a special two-hour investigation, Frontline reveals the hidden story of the NFL and brain injuries. What did the NFL know and when did it know it? What's the truth about the risks to players? What can be done? The investigation details how, for years, the league denied and worked to refute scientific evidence that the violent collisions at the heart of the game are linked to an alarming incidence of early onset dementia, catastrophic brain damage, and other devastating consequences for some of football's all-time greats. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    Frontline [#2911H] Football High High school football has never had a higher profile, with nationally televised games, corporate sponsorships and minute-by-minute coverage on sports websites. In northwest Arkansas, Frontline examines one ambitious high school team working its way towards national renown. With a superstar quarterback at the helm, tiny Shiloh Christian is striving to join the ranks of the country's best high school teams - teams whose workout schedules, practices and styles of play increasingly imitate the pros. But as high school players grow bigger, faster and stronger, there are growing concerns about the health and safety of these young players - with rising rates of concussions, career-ending injuries, even death. In Arkansas, Frontline documents a tragic story of heatstroke injuries that reveal how weak regulation has created a crucial lack of athletic trainers at most high schools. It all raises a critical question: has the amped-up culture of high school football outrun necessary protections for the boys who play the game? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Moyers & Company [#240H] Citizens United: The Sequel * This week, as the government shutdown continues, the Supreme Court began its new term and justices heard arguments in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. The case has been billed as the successor to the court's Citizens United decision in 2010 that gave corporations, unions, and the wealthy the opportunity to pour vast and often anonymous amounts of cash into political campaigns. The new case challenges caps on how much individual donors can give to candidates and political parties and could raise the amount to more than $3.25 million.
    Bill Moyers talks with Yale Law School election and constitutional law professor Heather Gerken who warns that McCutcheon has the potential to be even worse than Citizens United. Political parties pay attention to the people with money, and as the non-partisan Sunlight Foundation reports, most of the funding for congressional and presidential campaigns comes from the top one percent of the one percent of the rich - "the elite class that serves as gatekeepers of public office in the United States."
    * Bill also speaks with historian Joyce Appleby who has a talent for making tales of the past into page-turning books that read like novels. They include Inheriting the Revolution, about the sons and daughters who took their founding fathers' revolt against the British crown and made America of it; The Relentless Revolution: A History of Capitalism; and her newest - out this weekend - Shores of Knowledge: New World Discoveries and the Scientific Imagination. It's the story of what sent European explorers to the Americas in pursuit of treasure and knowledge, and how they shaped our modern world. Bill describes it as "a captivating account of curiosity."
