    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1302] Make Up Your Mind SAF discovers the "you" inside your head - the part of your mind, sitting right behind your forehead, that decides what you do every waking second of the day.

    Nature [#2711H] Cuba: The Accidental Eden This small island's varied landscape, its location in the heart of the Caribbean and its longstanding place at the center of Cold War politics have all combined to preserve some of the richest and most unusual natural environments of the hemisphere. For decades, Cuba's wild landscapes lay untouched while its Caribbean neighbors poisoned or paved over their ecological riches. Now, Cuba's priceless treasures are about to face an onslaught. Tourism is already on the rise and most experts predict tourism will double once the U.S. trade embargo ends. What will happen to Cuba's stunning biodiversity - an island filled with amphibians, reptiles and the most biologically diverse freshwater fish in the region? duration 55:16   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

NOVA captures the behind-the-scenes struggle of architects and engineers with the pressures of a tight schedule, the demands of practical office space and efficient, "green" architecture and the public's expectations of a fitting site for national remembrance. In September 2011, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, this program will culminate with the topping off ceremony at the Freedom Tower and the opening of the memorial. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
