    Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery [#102] Part 2 of 2 As Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and the Corps of Discovery passed the Missouri River and approached the Bitterroot Mountain Range, they grew desperate for horses and provisions to get through the seemingly endless, snow-covered peaks. Sacagawea's presence provided solace for the Corps--her knowledge of the West, her tireless enthusiasm, great courage and ability to care for a child along the expedition were inspiring to the frontiersmen. She once again became a living "white flag" for Lewis and Clark, this time to the Shoshone Indians--her native culture--who provided them with horses for their journey. The Corps continued to west, where, for the first time, their canoes were traveling with the river's current. Finally, on November 18, 1805, William Clark set out from their campsite in the Columbia River Gorge, climbed a hill and saw what no white man had ever seen from the Northwest: the Pacific Ocean. Their exploration of the West opened a new world to Americans and signaled the beginning of the end for Native Americans. When Thomas Jefferson learned of the vast continent between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, he predicted that it would take 100 years to settle the area through which Lewis and Clark traveled. It took Americans less than five years. This program, the second of a two-part series, recounts how this historic journey was really the discovery of the American future. duration 1:46:39   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Frontline [#3010] The Real CSI From the courtroom to the living room (thanks to the hit television series CSI), forensic science is king. Expertise on fingerprints, ballistics and bite mark analysis is routinely called on to solve the most difficult criminal cases - and to put the guilty behind bars. But how reliable is the science behind forensics? A Frontline investigation finds serious flaws in some of the best-known tools of forensic science and wide inconsistencies in how forensic evidence is presented in the courtroom. From the sensational murder trial of Casey Anthony and the FBI's botched investigation of the Madrid terrorist bombing to capital cases in rural Mississippi, Frontline documents how a field with few uniform standards and unproven science can undermine the search for justice. As part of the investigative series Post Mortem, Correspondent Lowell Bergman reports in a joint investigation with ProPublica and the Investigative Reporting Program at UCBerkeley. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Eating Alabama This documentary is a story about why food matters.

And the plan to eat only locally-grown food, in-season, upends their lives. The film is a thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers.

The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46
