    Erie: The Canal That Made America The Erie Canal, one of the earliest transcendent tales of the American experience and an endeavor first scoffed at as nothing more than a ditch, became the nation's first great technical innovation, a gateway to prominence, and the eighth wonder of the world. This documentary marks the bicentennial of the start of construction of the Erie Canal when surveyors and excavators began linking the young United States' east to its west in 1817 and depicts how a young nation broke through with its first great crusade of ingenuity by willing an impossible-to-build, 363 mile man-made waterway to the American frontier. Once the waters of the Great Lakes were wed with the Atlantic Ocean, the canal helped create what America now knows as the Empire State and propelled New York City into the role of America's leading port and economic hub. But the 200 years of the Erie's existence is more than a New York story. The Erie Canal is a defining saga of immigration and American culture. Farmers and new citizens poured their lives into communities along what was once known as "Clinton's Ditch." We learn how six presidents, including Washington, Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt, are linked to the canal's destiny; though it would be a wily New York politician, DeWitt Clinton, who championed its construction and ensured that it would become the canal that made America. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Soar This documentary explores the inspiring relationship between two sisters - both dancers: Kiera Brinkley, a quadruple amputee who lost her limbs at age two, and Uriah Boyd, who was born a month before her sister contracted pneumococcal sepsis. Featuring beautiful and moving dance sequences, the film celebrates the extraordinary ways that Kiera has learned to adapt - as a dancer, choreographer and medical assistant. It also reveals the deeply loving relationship between the sisters and how Uriah dedicated her life to helping Kiera adjust.
    Over the course of 3.5 years, the doc follows the lives of these two remarkable young women, capturing moments of revelation about themselves, and their frustrations with each other as they mature as individuals, dancers and sisters. Tension arises, though, when Uriah steps away, finally admitting her need to define herself as an individual. After a period of discord, a dance concert reunites them, rekindling their powerful bond. This film offers an intimate look at how dance helps these remarkable sisters to define themselves, together and separately, and the idea of what is possible.

    West of the West - Tales from California's Channel Island [#101H] First People "Rotation" is about the geologic forces 20 million years ago that pushed Santa Barbara and 4 of the Channel islands from the San Diego area to their present location.
    "Arlington Man" is about the discovery of the oldest human remains in all of North America and the affirmation that it was a coastal migration (not solely the land bridge) that contributed to the peopling of North and South America.< br>"First Contact" is actually two parallel stories. One is the voyage of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo - a Portuguese conquistador sailing for the Spanish - who was looking for China but instead 'discovered' Alta California and the Channel Islands. And that was 89 years before the Pilgrims got to Plymouth Rock, meaning that America really started here. His story is intercut with the San Diego Maritime Museum's ambitious, years-in-the-making, and ultimately successful effort to build a replica of Cabrillo's flagship the San Salvador.
    "Once Upon a Time" is a reveal of the culture of the Island Chumash, a Native American People that thrived for thousands of years on the Channel Islands.
    "The Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island" tells the true story behind Scott O'Dell's 8 million copy best-seller Island of the Blue Dolphins,a book read by millions of Californians.

    "Graveyard of Ships" tells about the 500 shipwrecks on the Channel Islands and the lessons learned from understanding the history of some of them and diving to view others.
    "Magic Isle" is about Santa Catalina Island. It's the only one of the eight ever developed. The Chicago Cubs held spring training there for 31 years, one evening 10,000 people danced in the Casino ballroom, and today it struggles to preserve the buildings left by it's prime owner William Wrigley, Jr.
    "The Legendary King of San Miguel Island" is the Tale of Herbert Lester and his family. They lived on the island in the 1930's and early 1940's, with the two Lester children being schooled there until ages 9 and 12. Betsy Lester recounts her childhood and the remarkable life her parents built 30 miles at sea on a rugged, windswept island.

    West of the West - Tales from California's Channel Island [#103H] Return "The Doctor and the Rock Star" documents the improbable friendship between Carey Stanton, owner of Santa Cruz Island (the largest of the eight) and musician Joe Walsh. Walsh, for over three decades, has quietly helped lead efforts to preserve the island.
    "Cache" reveals more information about The Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island. In this episode, the story is about discovery of a cave in which she lived and of two caches of items, buried in sand, believed to have been assembled by her while she lived alone on the island from 1835 to 1853.
    "Restoration" covers several aspects of efforts to restore the islands to their condition before settlers arrived in the 1800's. Recovery of the bald eagle and island fox are two examples, along with the creation of a National Park and National Marine Sanctuary.
    "Dark Water" is about today's descendants of Island Chumash (covered in program 101) relearning how to build ancient watercraft, which they use in their annual paddle across dangerous channel waters to a ceremony on Santa Cruz Island.
