    History Detectives [#203Z] WWII Land Craft/The Abolitionist Flag/Mail OrderBrides * LCT103/WW2 Land Craft - In the harbor of Bayfield, Wisconsin, a craft used for dredging and hauling rocks may hold a dramatic secret. A local man whose father fought in the World War II claims that 60 years ago the vessel played a vital role in the D-Day landings, transporting American tanks onto the beaches of Normandy. Could this ship really be one of the 1,500 "Landing Craft Tanks" designed and built to support the amphibious landings of the war? And did it really see action off the beaches of France? HD goes to Wisconsin and investigates.
    * The Abolitionist Flag - Two Michigan brothers uncovered what they believed was just an old sheet in a family trunk. But could this "sheet" have actually contributed to the end of slavery in America? Was it a flag that an ancestor may have used to campaign for the creation of Free States? Or was it used as propaganda in a pivotal pre-Civil War campaign? HD explores the politically charged abolition movement to reveal the unknown and surprising past of this family and their flag.
    * Mail Order Brides - In California, a photograph collector owns four small images of women taken in Chicago in the 1890s. On the back of one of the portraits are personal details and comments about the woman's inheritance, leading this collector to believe these are advertisements for mail order brides. Could he be right? HD visits California and Chicago to investigate the Victorian marriage industry, and discovers a shocking story of late 19th- century extortion and corruption.

    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1205] Growing Up Different Many children face challenges far beyond the usual stresses and strains of growing up. Alda meets several kids who are growing up different, along with the doctors and researchers who are trying to mitigate the difficulties they face.

    Halsted This is the true story of the most important surgeon America has ever produced. Surgery in the mid-19th Century consisted of crude and hurried amputations conducted in filthy operating rooms, often followed by horrendous infection. We can thank William Stewart Halsted, the pioneering father of American surgery, for bringing America into the era of safe surgery: sterile procedures, surgical gloves, careful handling of tissues, and local anesthesia. It was Halsted who introduced a scientific approach to medicine, but one set of experiments nearly ended his life and career. One set of experiments cost Halsted his reputation, his friendships, and his piece of mind. Halsted tried the new wonder drug cocaine as a local anesthetic and became addicted for life. This is the remarkable true story of the medical giant who brought America into the age of modern medicine while struggling with a secret addiction. duration 54:38   STEREO (Secondary audio: DVI)
