    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

    Space Age: NASA's Story [#102] To The Moon To land a human being on another celestial body will be the first step to living beyond our planet. 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

    Space Age: NASA's Story [#104] Life & Death In Space After visiting the Moon, humanity seeks to explore deep space and learn to live beyond the Earth. This requires extensive experimentation, and the building of NASA's first space station - Skylab. Thus begins a new stage in space exploration, heralding the replacement of rivalry with partnership; The International Space Station unites over a dozen nations - with Japanese, Canadian and European astronauts aiming to complete it by 2010. Meanwhile NASA's greatest asset - the Hubble Space Telescope - reveals what is waiting for us deep in space, having begun its life as NASA's most famous mistake. duration 51:17   STEREO TVRE

    Need To Know [#252H] NTK reports from Charlotte, N.C., the site of the Democratic convention. Anchor Jeff Greenfield looks ahead to what Mitt Romney's first hundred days in office might look like and what Barack Obama might do in the days immediately following his possible re-election.
    Jeff interviews Major Garrett about what each candidate will face should they win in November. Garrett spent eight years at Fox News where he was the Chief White House Correspondent. Garrett is now the White House Correspondent for National Journal.
    In Jeff's Final Note, he looks back at elections past and notes that sometimes there are black swans in politics - completely unpredictable events such as the assassination of Robert Kennedy and the financial meltdown in 2008 - that alter the outcomes of elections.

    This American Land [#205] Bison Homecoming, Preserving Tribal Languages, Peregrine Protection, Soaring with Paragliders Bison Homecoming: The buffalo are back! One hundred years after Native American Michael Pablo sent his captive bison herd to Canada to help preserve the dwindling species, dozens of their direct descendants were released into the bison herd on the American Prairie Reserve in northern Montana. The World Wildlife Fund has been collaborating with the American Prairie Reserve to help restore the grasslands habitat for the bison, birds, and other important native species that roamed the region when Lewis and Clark arrived in 1805.
    Preserving Tribal Languages: The passion of tribal elders and 21st century video technology are merging to bring new life to the Ojibwe language. Using "home movies" that depict everyday scenarios, experts at the University of Minnesota-Duluth are helping new generations learn and appreciate the language and culture.
    Peregrine Protection: Peregrine falcons are making a comeback-in some most unusual places. With help from bird lovers in Iowa, this once nearly extinct raptor has a new place to call home-atop an Iowa skyscraper! Once nearly wiped out by DDT, local falconers and the state Department of Natural Resources helped design a nest box that's keeping peregrine parents safe and cozy, and helping provide for a healthy new generation.
    Soaring with Paragliders: Jumping off a cliff has never been so spectacular! Daredevils in Oregon use thermal currents in a sort of "yacht race in the sky." 160 pilots joined the "Rat Race" in the intricate sport of paragliding. Their only source of power is the thermal lift from hot air. Even the crew of "Oregon Field Guide" at Oregon Public Broadcasting got in on the act during this breathtaking event.

    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.

"Presumed Guilty" is the story of two young lawyers and their struggle to free Zuniga.

As the Iowa immigrant comes to terms with her bi-cultural identity, her story sheds light on a little-known genocide against this hemisphere's largest Indian majority. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V

Today the island's traditional cultures are diverse and complex but there are several ancient traditions which remain active today, especially the Dukduk Secret Society. Next, we visit the township of Rabaul, once the provincial capital until it was destroyed in 1994 by a massive volcanic eruption. Rabaul is still a superb location for scuba diving, snorkeling and wreck dives. We travel onwards to the stunningly beautiful island of Bougainville, named after a French navigator, and an excellent location for wreck-diving and sea kayaking. duration 56:31   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)
