    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.

    Crimebuster: A Son's Search for His Father Crimebuster: A Son's Search for His Father follows photojournalist Lou Dematteis as he searches for the story of his late father, the influential Italian American crime fighter and jurist Louis B. Dematteis, and examines their rocky personal relationship. District Attorney and Judge Louis B. Dematteis fought organized crime in northern California in the 1940s and '50s and gave Sandra Day O'Connor (interviewed in the film) her first job as a lawyer when no one was hiring women. The film moves from Italy and Ellis Island to California and the San Francisco Bay Area with its story of immigrants, family, justice and healing. duration 56:48   STEREO TVPG

    Bittersweet Roots: The Chinese In California's Heartland The California Delta, in the heart of the state, is the only place in America where the Chinese have maintained a sustained presence for nearly a century and a half. Here, immigrants from China transformed swampland into one of the richest agricultural regions. Through archival imagery, actor portrayed recreations, and personal family accounts, this program is a powerful lesson in triumphing over adversity. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
