    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1208] Games Machines Play To many educators, nothing beats a contest to bring out the best in their science and engineering students. The episode looks at three such contests: the grand-daddy of them all, the MIT design contest ( this year featuring a challenge in which pairs of robots face off on a gyrating teeter-totter); a human powered submarine race; and the series of contests pitting teams of robot soccer players against each other to win RoboCup 2001. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Klamath Basin: A Restoration for the Ages For over a century, the Klamath Basin along the Oregon and California border has faced complex water management disputes. The water interests range from the Tribes near the river, to energy producer PacifiCorp, farmers, municipalities, commercial fishermen, environmentalists-all bearing legitimate arguments for how to manage the water. After years of fighting, a groundbreaking compromise may soon settle the battles with two epic agreements that hold the promise of peace and fish for the watershed. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
  • 8:00 am
    Olmsted and America's Urban Parks 151 years after Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) designed New York City's Central Park with Calvert Vaux, it remains an undisputed haven of tranquility amid one of the largest, tallest and most unnatural places in the world. This program, narrated by actress Kerry Washington, examines the visionary urban planner and landscape architect's impact on the development of America's first great city parks in the late 19th century.
    With incredible foresight, Olmsted brought nourishing green spaces to New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Louisville and dozens of other US cities. Throughout his working life, Olmsted and his firm carried out more than 500 commissions, including nearly 100 public parks. He believed parks should serve as vital democratic spaces, where citizens from all walks of life could converge and feel restored. Prior to officially committing to landscape architecture, Olmsted worked as a New York Times correspondent to the Confederate states, the manager of a California gold mine and General Secretary of the United States Sanitary Commission during the Civil War.
    Olmsted, a workaholic by today's standards, devoted the latter half of his life to creating green spaces for overworked city dwellers. Told in large part through Olmsted's own words (voiced by Oscar winning actor Kevin Kline), this film weaves together his poignant personal story and pioneering vision with contemporary footage of the lasting masterpieces he left behind.
