Costa Rica is home to endless natural wonders: wild rivers, fire-spewing volcanoes, verdant rainforests and more species of animals and plants than found in the United States and Canada combined. Bangs attempts to uncover the secret to Costa Rica's success in preserving their small country's extraordinary biodiversity. He begins his journey on the Pacific side, where the Osa Peninsula encircles Corcovado National Park.

    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.

    Washington Week [#5211H] * Rioting and anti-American protests continue to spread across North Africa and the Middle East following the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya that claimed the life of the ambassador and three other Americans. The FBI is investigating whether the attack in Libya was a terrorist act planned to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary or a violent reaction to an anti-Islam film produced in the US.
    Since the Arab-spring uprising began in 2011, the US has provided Libya more than $200 million in humanitarian and military aid to help stabilize the country after Moammar Gadhafi was deposed and killed. But could this week's simmering and expanding unrest change US relations with Libya and other nations in the region? We will get some answers and analysis from Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times and David Sanger of The New York Times.
    * "Mitt Romney's swift criticism of the administration policy amid deadly protests in Libya and violence in Cairo touched a nerve and could mark a turning point for a campaign," reports Major Garrett of National Journal. He and Laura Meckler of The Wall Street Journal will examine how the simmering unrest overseas has moved foreign policy to the forefront of the 2012 presidential race.
    * Plus we'll take a closer look at how the Federal Reserve plans to boost the economy and reduce unemployment and whether that action may change the dynamics of the race for the White House.
