    Washington Week [#5210H] Democrats recaptured the political spotlight this week at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
    On Thursday night, President Barack Obama is expected to remind voters during his primetime acceptance speech of promises kept during his first term as well as his vision for moving the country forward if elected to a second term.
    On Wednesday night in a speech to an overflow convention hall, former President Bill Clinton distilled the president's record, refuted point-by-point GOP attacks, and assured the audience that President Obama could turn the troubled economy around if re-elected.
    All week long Democratic leaders have stepped up to the podium to rekindle voter enthusiasm by highlighting how the president has made the country better by passing health care reform, saving the auto industry and cutting taxes through the stimulus.
    But Friday's jobs report could either give the Obama campaign a boost or serve to quell any post-convention bounce.
    Gwen Ifill returns from Charlotte for a complete roundup of the Democratic convention and analysis of where the presidential race goes from here with Dan Balz of The Washington Post; Peter Baker of The New York Times; Michael Duffy of Time Magazine; and Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News.

    This American Land [#206] Canyon Mysteries, Ailing Alligators, Lights, Camera, Photosynthesis, Wild Horses Canyon Mysteries: A canyon can be an inspiring classroom, whether you are eight or 80. The stories behind two Georgia canyons could not be any different: Cloudland Canyon in the north is a natural wonder. But Providence Canyon in the southwest is now a tourist destination, in spite of the way earlier residents abused the land. Both intriguing stories come from Georgia Public Broadcasting.
    Ailing Alligators: It's hard to imagine many threats that alligators can't handle. But in one Florida lake, chemical pollution is devastating these big reptiles with genetic birth defects. A disease sleuth is trying to get to the bottom of this bio-medical mystery, and his findings could help humans as well. We'll take you to Lake Apopka in Central Florida for some daring scientific discovery.
    Lights, Camera, Photosynthesis: Ready for your close-up? Some crops in Wisconsin are getting more than their 15 minutes of fame. As they sprout, hundreds of corn plants will have thousands of photos taken, to help researchers learn precisely how they grow. Researchers can track the function of specific genes, with the goal of creating hardier plants that can stay healthy in harsh conditions.
    Wild Horses: There's a romantic notion of wild mustangs, running free across the American West. The reality is more complicated. Horses are long-lived and don't have many natural predators, so their populations can quickly get out of control. Adopting one of these magnificent animals can change the lives of horses, and humans. In eastern Oregon and across the West, a lot of animals are looking for loving homes. Find out what's happening to protect them as well as the other wildlife in this beautiful landscape.

    Space Age: NASA's Story [#101] From The Ground Up Born of the Cold War, NASA moves stridently from disastrous rocket tests to the glorious conclusion of the Gemini Program. We experience the massive challenges of sending a man into space and how, despite many setbacks, the astronauts proved that the key element to exploration would be human resourcefulness, in space as well as on the ground. NASA veterans describe these early missions as the hardest of all - the first, uncertain steps towards a new frontier. Building on the success of the pioneering Mercury program, Project Gemini gives NASA the experience and confidence to take the next giant leap - to land men on the Moon. duration 51:06   STEREO TVRE

The breathless pace and daring of the Apollo program sees NASA master previously unimagined tasks in the attempt to achieve the most incredible accomplishment in the history of human endeavor. From the ashes of tragedy on Apollo 1 emerges a determination that puts Apollo 8 in orbit around the Moon ahead of schedule. Apollo 9 and 10 each break bold new ground and pave the way for something few dared to believe was possible. When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the Moon and return safely to earth, the whole planet throws them a party. duration 52:01   STEREO TVRE

    Space Age: NASA's Story [#103] Triumph & Tragedy With repeated triumphs and new challenges comes increasing risk, until loss breaks the pattern. The white-knuckle suspense thriller of Apollo 13's famous near-disaster is only a triumphant prelude to darker moments ahead. The launch of the space shuttle program promises routine trips to Earth orbit for many new astronauts. But just when that promise seems fulfilled, routine shuttle launches begin to bore the public. NASA responds by training a school-teacher to fly, in order to teach children lessons from space. Christa McAuliffe's life is tragically cut short as she and the rest of the crew perish aboard the shuttle Challenger. All missions are halted. Eventually the shuttle returns to orbit, for fifteen years of successful missions until disaster strikes again with the shocking loss of Columbia. It would be the beginning of the end for the shuttle. duration 51:41   STEREO TVRE
