    Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose: Geneva and the Matterhorn: Quest for the Water Castle Renowned adventurer Richard Bangs explores the Rhone River, Lake Geneva and the Matterhorn regions of Switzerland - the country known since Medieval times as the "water castle" of Europe. On his quest, Richard uncovers how the Swiss harnessed the Rhone to light Switzerland and its neighbors, power some of the world's most efficient rail systems and quench the thirst of millions, while still managing to preserve this precious resource. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2403H] October 19, 2012 NEWS PANEL:
    CAMPAIGN FINANCE - The influx of money from outside California on local races and statewide campaigns could greatly influence government and policy. Contributions from an Arizona non-profit, called Americans for Responsible Leadership, which is funding ads in support of Prop 32 and opposed to Prop 30, raise questions about the role of third party financing and loopholes in California's campaign finance laws.
    POLITICS OF EDUCATION TAX PROPOSITIONS - Gov. Brown's Prop 30, which would raise taxes to provide funding for public education, is being attacked from the political left and right by a pair of wealthy siblings, Molly and Charles Munger, who have spent tens of millions of dollars opposing Prop 30. Molly Munger, a civil rights attorney from Pasadena who is offering an alternative public education tax measure, Prop 38, recently pulled a controversial attack ad. Conservative Stanford physicist Chuck Munger opposes any new taxes.
    GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD - If approved by voters, Prop 37 would make California the first state to require labeling on all genetically modified foods and would prevent those foods from being called "natural." Opponents of the measure include farmers, concerned over a potential spike in food costs - and large corporations like Nestle and Coca-Cola, which have been fighting both state and federal legislation since GMOs were introduced 18 years ago. Some supporters are nutrition activists, who feel that all genetically modified products should be identified for consumers.
    Guests: Corey Cook, University of San Francisco; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Lisa Krieger, San Jose Mercury News.
    THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF DOUG RICKARD - Local photographer Doug Rickard brings a keen eye to Google street view. He's creating images that reference documentary photography of the past, but push the medium forward in controversial and compelling ways.

    Nature [#2804H] Wolverine: Chasing The Phantom Its name stirs images of the savage, the untameable. Legend paints it as a solitary, bloodthirsty killer that roams the icy heart of the frozen north, taking down prey as large as moose, crushing bones to powder with its powerful jaws. But there is another image of the wolverine that is just beginning to emerge, one that is far more complex than its reputation suggests. This film takes viewers into the secretive world of the largest and least known member of the weasel family to reveal who this dynamic little devil truly is. Hard-wired to endure en environment of scarcity, the wolverine is one of the most efficient and resourceful carnivores on Earth. duration 1:10:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3912H] Forensics on Trial There is a startling gap between the glamorous television world of "CSI" and the gritty reality of the forensic crime lab. With few established scientific standards, no central oversight and poor regulation of examiners, forensics in the US is in a state of crisis. Nova investigates how modern forensics, including the analysis of fingerprints, bite marks, ballistics, hair, and tool marks, can send innocent men and women to prison - and sometimes even to death row. Shockingly, of more than 250 inmates exonerated by DNA testing over the last decade, more than 50% of the wrongful convictions stemmed from invalid or improperly handled forensic science. With the help of vivid recreations of actual trials and cases, Nova investigated today's shaky state of crime science as well as cutting-edge solutions that could help investigators put the real criminals behind bars. duration 53:56   STEREO TV14

    Nova scienceNOW [#602H] Can Science Stop Crime? What's the secret to stopping crime? David Pogue gives the third degree to scientists pushing the limits of technology - not only to solve horrific murders, but also to try to prevent crimes. Pogue learns the latest techniques, from unraveling the clues embedded in a decomposing corpse to detecting lies by peering directly into a suspect's brain to tracking the creation of a psychopath's mind. And a genius crime-stopper has made some terrifying discoveries, including how easy it is for a bad guy to highjack - not just your laptop, but your kids' toys, your pacemaker and even your car. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    This American Land [#211] Idaho Wilderness, Loggerhead Turtles, Sandfish Lizard, Wrangling Water Idaho Wilderness: Its wild residents could fill a volume of some of the most iconic American wildlife: From elk and moose to spawning salmon, mountain goats and sheep to black bears and cougars. Efforts are underway to protect central Idaho's Boulder-White Clouds Mountains, designating 330,000 acres as wilderness. The proposed federal legislation would both protect these lands, and ensure economic sustainability.
    Loggerhead Turtles: These animals make one of the most treacherous journeys of any creatures, without any parental involvement. Human development is making their survival even more dangerous. Sharon Collins of Georgia Public Broadcasting shows us how these amazing reptiles struggle in an epic journey. These large sea turtles are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
    Sandfish Lizard: The sandfish is a little lizard that lives in the Sahara Desert. Scientists are fascinated by its slithering moves. It can tuck its limbs close to its body, and literally "swim" through the sand, just like an eel wiggles its way through water. Physicists are studying this little creature, and using it to inspire new robotic moves that could one day help search-and-rescue crews find survivors in piles of rubble, left from disasters like Hurricane Katrina. The little sandfish is teaching us a lot about what it takes to worm through rugged terrain and debris.
    Wrangling Water: Cattle are not the only things being rounded up in Florida. Ranchers are also herding water! For years, experts have searched for answers about how to increase water storage in the northern Everglades, and reduce the pollution levels. A pilot program pays ranchers to use their low-lying lands for "environmental services" - namely to store water. Water that's captured during the June through October wet season can then be slowly released during dry months into the tributaries of Lake Okeechobee. And it's proving to be a good thing both for the economy and the environment.

    Moyers & Company [#141H] Plutocracy Rising The One Percent is not only increasing their share of wealth - they're using it to spread millions among political candidates who serve their interests. Example: Goldman Sachs, which gave more money than any other major American corporation to Barack Obama in 2008, is switching alliances this year; their employees have given $900,000 both to Mitt Romney's campaign and to the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future. Why? Because, says the Wall Street Journal, the Goldman Sachs gang felt betrayed by President Obama's modest attempts at financial reform.
    But even more audacious than opening your wallet to trade cash for influence is strong-arming your employees to vote as you say. Such intimidation is out in the open, from the Murray Energy CEO who reportedly made his workers spend unpaid time at a pro-Romney rally; to David and Charles Koch, who sent anti-Obama and pro-Romney materials to the 45,000 employees of their subsidiary Georgia Pacific; to ASG Solutions boss Arthur Allen, who sent an intimidating email to his employees.
    This week Bill is joined by two veteran journalists to discuss how the super-rich have willfully confused their self-interest with America's interest. Guests are Chrystia Freeland, author of the new book Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else; and Rolling Stone magazine's Matt Taibbi, who regularly shines his spotlight on scandals involving big business and government.

    Washington Week [#5216H] With less than three weeks until Election Day and early voting already underway, both President Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney are hitting the campaign trail hard targeting women and undecided voters. A number of polls taken after Tuesday's feisty debate over taxes, the deficit, foreign policy, and pay equity for women show most voters thought Obama performed better than Romney. But national polls show the race remains in a virtual tie. So which candidate has the most to gain or lose at next week's third and final presidential debate?
