12:00 amMoyers & Company [#238H] Saving The Earth from Ourselves Right now, the government of Russia is holding in custody the Arctic Sunrise, a ship crewed by 30 environmental activists from the organization Greenpeace International. They attempted to board a Russian offshore oil platform, demonstrating against drilling for fossil fuels in the fragile environment of the Arctic. Their protest, which may lead to charges of piracy, comes at the same time as news that not so long from now - by mid-century or even sooner - summer in the Arctic Ocean will be ice free. Since 1980, thanks to global warming, the Arctic already has lost around 40% of its sea ice cover, and that is having a huge effect on climate and the way the wheels and gears of the Earth are supposed to work.
According to Greenpeace International Executive Director Kumi Naidoo, "Greenpeace activists and other environmental and social activists standing up for a more just, equitable and sustainable world are putting their lives on the line on a regular basis. What is at stake is humanity's ability to live in coexistence with nature for centuries to come." < br />Naidoo dared to scale an oil rig in the Artic only to be hammered with freezing water from a high-powered hose aimed right at him. The charismatic leader of Greenpeace International saved himself by thinking about his daughter, who inspired his activism in the first place. Naidoo was held for 4 days in a Greenland jail after one of these perilous climbs but it was not the first time he's seen the inside of a cell. From his teenage years in South Africa, he was a vocal and powerful opponent of apartheid, incarcerated and beaten so often he finally fled to Britain, where he was awarded a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford. When apartheid ended, Naidoo went back to South Africa and became a prominent human rights activist with a growing concern for the impact of climate change on impoverished people of color. In 2009, he brought his negotiating and advocacy skills to the leadership of Greenpeace International, now a worldwide organization of 3 million members. Naidoo joins Moyers & Company this week to discuss the politics of global warming and the urgency of environmental activism. duration 56:46 STEREO TVRE

Clips come from worldwide archives including American Bandstand, Where The Action Is, Shindig!, and many other vaults thought long lost. "This time in American pop music is very special," says series creator TJ Lubinsky. "it's a time of innocence, angst, puppy love, heartbreak, and most of all great memories of younger carefree times - like the feeling we all share of that one special summer we all had in our teens - wherever we were hearing these songs on the radio." It's early rock and pop at its best on PBS. Hosted by the always "Supreme" Mary Wilson. duration 1:59:10 STEREO TVG

4:30 amHeal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, MD This special is based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof that Your Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. It is a meticulously researched explanation of the critical role our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play in our health and wellbeing - and how we can harness the power of our minds to enjoy great health and longevity with specific, easy-to-do steps.
Part 1 covers topics such as why Western medicine is very important; your brain is most important organ for your health; "Learned helplessness"; and asking what does your body need in order to heal?
Part 2 includes an explanation of the placebo effect with examples; explanation of the nocebo effect and of the role the amygdala plays in the brain and how it controls stress; understanding how the body has its own self-repair mechanisms, which are under the influence of the nervous system; and why the body's self-repair mechanisms only work when the relaxation response is activated.
Part 3 covers the importance of reducing stress response for self-healing and optimal health; Dr. Rankin's groundbreaking new wellness model: The Whole Health Cairn; why physical health is only one aspect of whole health; the difference between being healed and being cured; and healing ourselves, healing health care.
Dr. Rankin is a trained ob-gyn who has emerged as one of the newest thought leaders in the mind/body medicine arena. Her work has been featured extensively in national media, including O magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Health, Women's Health, Self, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She is also the founder of The Whole Health Medicine Institute, dedicated to teaching doctors how to provide truly integrative health and wellness to patients. Its Board includes Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Christiane Northrup, who says about Lissa, "What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine - the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well." duration 1:29:20 STEREO TVG
6:00 amZoboomafoo [#102] Eye Spy The gang talks about seeing and being seen when a pair of black jaguar cubs come for a visit. Sleek and stealthy, these jaguars have excellent dark spotted coats to camouflage them in the dark forest. Plus, they've got amazing night vision that helps them see in their forest home. Martin and Chris wonder what it's like to see like creatures see, so they build a new Kratt contraption: Eye-Spy goggles. The device allows them to see like a jaguar, a butterfly, a hawk, and a frog. It's spring and Jackie and the Animal Helpers are planting an evergreen tree. The tree was Jackie's Christmas tree, so she wants to decorate it for the birds. She and the Helpers adorn it with apples and popcorn, excellent treats for her winged friends. duration 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

7:00 amSesame Street [#4401H] Telly Gets Jealous Telly and Baby Bear are outside playing with their pets. Telly tries to get his hamster, Chuckie Sue, to make squeaky noises, eat out of his hand, run on her wheel, and play a shapes and colors game, but Chuckie Sue does not do any of those things. Telly becomes upset when he sees that Baby Bear's pet, Ralphie, can speak Spanish, make squeaky noises like a hamster, make his own snack, count, AND knows his shapes. Telly exclaims that he is tired of hearing about Ralphie and calls Baby Bear a show-off. He does not want to play with them anymore and storms off. Gordon asks Telly if everything is okay, and Telly explains that he is feeling angry because Ralphie can do things that Chuckie Sue can't, and he wishes he had a parrot just like Baby Bear. Gordon explains to Telly that what he feels is jealous, and that it is normal to feel that way. Telly wants to apologize to Baby Bear but doesn't know how. Every time he sees Baby Bear and Ralphie he gets so jealous he can hardly talk. Gordon suggests a strategy to help Telly calm down. He can try putting his hands on his belly and saying "Stop!" Then, he should breathe in and out slowly and tell himself to calm down. Telly does this and thinks he is now ready. He finds Baby Bear and tells him that he is sorry for calling him a show-off. He was jealous, wishing he had a parrot, too. Baby Bear accepts Telly's apology and explains that they are best friends and Telly can play with Ralphie any time he wants. This helps Telly not feel so jealous anymore. It really is a best friend's kind of day! duration 58:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
