    Amazing Underground Secrets [#101H] Natural Wonders Much of the underground world is carved by nature; many of its greatest treasures are the result of elemental processes as old as the planet itself. We haven't been slow to make use of these extraordinary and dramatic spaces - they provide us with a record of our earliest history, if we know where to look. But it's a dangerous, often threatening realm, with its dark caverns, narrow environments and rushing water.

    Frontline [#3023H] The Suicide Plan You have an incurable illness, you want to die, and you want help dying - what can you do? People who are terminally ill and live in Oregon or Washington can openly ask a doctor for help, but in the rest of country, where physician-assisted suicide is illegal, people who are suffering turn in secret to friends, family members and even activist organizations. In this film, Frontline explores the shadow world of assisted suicide, where the lines between legality and criminality are blurred as never before. With intimate access to decisions near the end of life, it takes viewers inside one of the most polarizing social issues of our time - told not only by the people choosing to die, but also by their "assisters," individuals and right-to-die organizations at risk of prosecution for their actions to hasten death. duration 1:26:46   STEREO

    Johnny Carson: American Masters Johnny Carson was seen by more people than anyone else in American history - a fixture of national life, a piece of the cultural furniture, a part of the Zeitgeist. In exploring the career, the complexities and contradictions of the biggest star television has ever produced, American Masters had his estate's first-time-ever cooperation and permission - unrestricted entree into his personal archives and, perhaps, Carson's greatest legacy - all episodes of The Tonight Show from 1970-1992.
    Clues about his life, stories about his childhood and early days in the business can be found there - as well as in the expansive family albums and memorabilia. Original interviews with friends, colleagues, his wives and the many performers who appeared, or began, on The Tonight Show, offer additional texture and context - Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, among others.
