    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1309] You Can Make It On Your Own As digital technology gets smaller and less expensive, it is empowering people in unprecedented ways - from villagers in rural India who use computers to monitor the quality of their food and water to children who use PCs to write and play music. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nature [#3002H] Magic of the Snowy Owl This episode explores the world of the snowy owl, a bird recently made popular by Hedwig, Harry Potter's faithful companion. Turning fantasy into reality, "Magic of the Snowy Owl" takes an intimate look at how these majestic birds survive in one of the most isolated and inhospitable places on the planet. Noted wildlife filmmaker Fergus Beeley ("Jungle Eagle") takes viewers deep into the "snowy's" tundra home on the North Slope of Alaska to observe the daily struggles involved in raising a family of helpless chicks until they are able to fly. Viewers will discover that these strikingly beautiful Arctic owls - essentially eagles, falcons and owls rolled into one - have a magic of their own. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3815H] Iceman Murder Mystery He's been dead for more than 5,000 years. He's been poked, prodded and probed by scientists for the last 20. And yet today, Otzi the Iceman, the famous mummified corpse pulled from a glacier in the Italian Alps nearly two decades ago, continues to keep many secrets. Now, through an autopsy like no other, scientists attempt to unravel more mysteries from this ancient mummy than ever before, revealing not only the details of Otzi's death, but an entire way of life. How did people live during Otzi's time, the Copper Age? What did we eat? What diseases did we cope with? The answers abound miraculously in this one man's mummified remains. duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)
