    Life of Mammals [#105Z] Meat Eaters From the very first time mammals walked on the planet there has been both hunter and hunted. The pressure to evolve speed, endurance and maneuverability has helped them to outwit each other and occupy their very own niche. For the first mammalian hunters that came down from the trees their small size and agility proved to be a winner, but as they ventured further a field they needed to change to stay as the top hunters.
    In the frozen north the artic fox needs to hunt during warmer times and cache this food to survive the winter. In southern climates leopards and tigers have become solitary hunters relying on stealth and surprise to catch their next meal, coming together only to mate. Others around the globe like wolves and lions work in teams and family groups so they can tackle larger prey and better protect their young. But their efficiency as hunters makes it essential that their family life is held together and tightly controlled. With all hunters the aggression of the kill means the difference between life and death.

    Life of Mammals [#106Z] Opportunists When it comes to food most mammals are specialists - some eat nothing but termites, some just seeds, others eat only flesh, and one species, the giant panda, relies almost exclusively on bamboo. But, there is an alternative strategy for feeding. Instead of being a specialist you can be a generalist - an omnivore - able to eat such a variety of food that you can always make the most of whatever seems to be around at the time. It's the recipe for a successful story, and amongst this diverse group of animals are some of the most charismatic and widespread mammals on the planet.
    This strategy does, however, require many specialist skills. Omnivores, for example, need to be inquisitive, like the raccoon which, with its highly sensitive hands, searches for food both on land and underwater. They need to have a strong sense of smell, like the bizarre looking babirusa pig, which can easily detect the scent of ripe fruit wafting gently through dense tropical vegetation. They need to be opportunists, like skunks in Texas which, for a few weeks a year, feast on baby bats that fall to the ground from cave walls. But, above all omnivores need to be adaptable - whether hibernating through periods of food scarcity, like the raccoon dog, or just making the most of whatever food happens to most plentiful at the time, like the grizzly bear which, at certain times of the year, can consume a staggering 30,000 calories a day (that's ten times more than an adult man!).
    Many of the world's most specialist mammals are now under increasing threat from human expansion into their habitats. These animals simply cannot adapt quickly enough to change. Not so the omnivores. Raccoons, raccoon dogs, foxes, pigs, rats and even bears have all found refuge in cities and towns across the globe. Their success in our world is a testament to their adaptability and very unfussy diet. Indeed, it's a strategy that has worked exceedingly well for the most successful mammal of all - humans.

    Sesame Street [#4261H] The Shape O' Bots Telly, Elmo, and Rosita are playing Shape-O-Bots, robots that actually transform into shapes to help people. Andy, a guy in need of shapes, rushes in and explains that he needs an octagon to help stop people from crashing into him. Telly tries to transform into an octagon with eight sides and eight angles, but changes into a triangle with three sides and three angles instead. Rosita gives it a try and successfully transforms into an octagon, which Andy uses as a stop sign to stop people from running into him. Andy leaves but soon returns, this time in need of a pentagon, a shape with five sides and five angles. He explains that he is a baseball coach and needs a home plate, which is shaped like a pentagon, so his players won't slide right into him. The Shape-O-Bots do their thing and, once again, Telly changes into a triangle. Elmo is able to help, though, and transforms into a pentagon. Andy now returns one last time needing a rhombus, a shape with four sides and four angles, for the King of Rhombuses, who is missing his. Telly tries to transform into a rhombus, but, once again, winds up as a triangle. Rosita notices that a rhombus is actually two triangles stuck together. Chris suggests that since Telly hit his button one time to become a triangle, maybe hitting it two times will turn him into a rhombus. It works! Everyone is happy - especially the Shape-O-Bots. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#203H] What's Fueling The Modern Abortion Debate? * This year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that overturned many federal and state restrictions on a woman's right to an abortion. But while polls show that most Americans support the decision, and that a majority - for the first time - believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, anti-abortion forces show no sign of relenting. A study by the Guttmacher Institute reported that state legislatures passed 92 provisions restricting a woman's access to reproductive health care in 2011 - a number four times higher than the previous year.
    This week, Bill discusses the changing face of the reproductive rights movement and those it serves - as well as the success of social conservatives on the abortion front - with Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, and Lynn Paltrow, founder and Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women.
