    This American Land [#203] Ferrets and Prairie Dogs, Hidden Gems, Follow the Water, Island Fires Ferrets and Prairie Dogs: After being nearly wiped out in the early 20th century, the black- footed ferret is making a comeback. It's taken a complicated conservation effort and a captive breeding program to restore this species to the Great Plains. The health of the ferret is tied directly to the success of prairie dogs- animals that have also had plenty of run-ins with humans. Keeping these two playful, adorable species in good shape is also helping save 130 unique plants and animals in this North American prairie ecosystem. < br />Hidden Gems: Whether you are a hiker, skier, or mountain biker, there is plenty to treasure in an area of the Rocky Mountains known as Hidden Gems. A plan that's been 11 years in the making would protect this area as wilderness, creating more habitat corridors for wildlife and protecting these areas from development, motorized vehicles, and unauthorized trail-building. Supporters have worked hard to make sure that the needs of all outdoor lovers are considered. Join us as we hit the trails!
    Follow the Water: If scientists want to understand drought, floods, and water supplies, they have to follow the water-every drop of it! At Penn State University, researchers are documenting the flow of water, using tools like infrared lasers and other sophisticated sensors. But to get all the data they need there's some old-fashioned skills necessary too, like climbing trees to collect leaves and branches. These water sleuths will be able to help planners predict changes triggered by accelerating climate change.
    Island Fires: Martha's Vineyard is known for water, not fire. That's why some might be surprised that "prescribed burns," a few dozen acres at a time, really boil down to good ecological housekeeping. Ridding areas of the island of flammable shrubbery before it ignites by itself is actually a good way to re-charge the landscape. The ash that's left behind from the fire is a natural fertilizer, giving plants lots of energy. And those controlled burns also give residents peace of mind.

    Changing Seas [#203] Seagrasses and Mangroves They are an ancient species of flowering plants that grow submerged in all of the world's oceans. Seagrasses link offshore coral reefs with coastal mangrove forests. Today, these "prairies of the sea," along with mangroves, are on the decline globally. Scientists fear the diminishing vegetation could result in an ecosystem collapse from the bottom of the food chain all the way to the top. Changing Seas joins experts in the field as they work to restore Florida's important mangroves and seagrasses. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
  • 7:00 am
    Manifest Destiny [#103] Monsters to Destroy The final episode begins with the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War. As the sole superpower, the US under George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush finds itself in a series of small but unpredictable and deadly military actions, from the Gulf War to Somalia, the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq, each with compromised objectives and unforeseen consequences. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

Pulling no punches, the documentary takes on the highly-controversial subject of the payola scandals of the time period and Clark's testimony before Congress. Performers interviewed include Chubby Checker, Connie Francis, Fabian, Frankie Avalon, Len Barry, Charlie Gracie, members of The Beach Boys, Danny & the Juniors and many others. duration 58:00   STEREO TVG
