    History Detectives [#107Z] The Depot That Made Dallas, Mexican Peso, Pirate Spyglass * The Depot That Made Dallas - A local historian in Dallas, Texas, has a question about an early railroad station in the middle of Dallas. He wants to know if this building was the first railroad station in Texas - and if so, was it responsible for creating the bustling metropolis that Dallas is today? HD hits town to investigate this railroad mystery.
    * Mexican Peso - A man from San Antonio, Texas, found what looked like Mexican currency among his late great-grandfather's possessions. Are they linked to the Mexican bandits Zapata and Pancho Villa? Did they play a part in the Mexican revolution in the1910s and if so, how did they get into the hands of his great-grandfather, a quiet family man from San Antonio?
    * Pirate Spyglass - Jean Lafitte has been called a fearsome pirate, an ingenious privateer and a war hero. His exploits are still recounted today in Texas and Louisiana. A librarian in Texas City, Texas, has a spyglass she believes may once have belonged to Lafitte. Old, but still in working condition, the object was donated to the local library by a descendent of Jim Campbell - a founder of the town and one of Lafitte's captains. Did Jean Lafitte give his trusted captain a spyglass, and if he did - is this Jean Lafitte's spyglass?

    Money and Medicine As rising health care costs threaten to bankrupt the country, this documentary tackles the medical, ethical and financial challenges of containing runaway health care spending. In addition to illuminating the so-called waste and overtreatment that pervade our medical system, it explores promising ways to reduce health care expenditures while improving the overall quality of medical care. The film captures the painful end-of-life treatment choices made by patients and their families, ranging from very aggressive interventions in the ICU to palliative care at home. It also investigates the controversy surrounding diagnostic testing and screening as well as the shocking treatment variations among patients receiving a variety of elective procedures. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 8:00 am
    Bhutan - Taking The Middle Path to Happiness This program examines Bhutan's policy of "Gross National Happiness," which emphasizes environmental and cultural preservation, economic development through hydroelectric power, and transparent and honest governance. The Himalayan kingdom's commitment to these four pillars, particularly its approaches to "good governance" and sustainable energy practices, set it apart from most of the world. Prime Minister Lynpo Yeshey Zimba and Jigme Drukpa, the Director of the National Academy of Performing Arts, articulate the importance of each pillar. During the film, government officials and locals explain the meaning of "the middle path," a concept rooted in their Buddhism-influenced view of the world. Happiness and enlightenment, they believe, result from neither overindulging in the world's pleasures nor rejecting the world's goodness. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
