    This American Land [#213] Future Conservation Leaders, Natural Resources Revival, Fight for Frogs, Amazing Monarch Journey Future Conservation Leaders: Santa Cruz Island, off the coast of California, is home to bald eagles, scrub jays, and the most adorable foxes you may ever see! This summer, the island is also home to high school students from the Los Angeles area, working side by side with scientists. Co-host Caroline Raville spent some time with these young people to learn about LEAF, Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future. This Nature Conservancy program not only gives high school students a chance to enjoy nature, but provides a spark for many of them to pursue careers in science and conservation.
    Natural Resources Revival: A county in eastern Oregon has transformed from being dependent on timber, to being a pioneer in using its natural resources. Lake County is known as the "Saudi Arabia" of geothermal power. Its schools and hospitals are already taking advantage of sustainable energy sources including solar and wind power as well. Folks who used to be at odds, from the lumber industry and conservation groups, have put aside their differences to come up with sustainable answers for the future.
    A Fight for Frogs: A third of the world's amphibians face extinction, with more than 400 animals listed as "critically endangered." Habitat loss is one major threat, and that's the challenge for the gopher frog. Their population is now at an alarming low. These amphibians need both sandy, forested areas, and wetlands in order to breed. But development is making it tougher and tougher for them to survive. Sharon Collins of Georgia Public Broadcasting shows us how scientists are working to save these animals.
    Amazing Monarch Journey: Monarch butterflies, up to two billion of them, have to fly hundreds of miles to get to their wintering site in Mexico. So even a tiny impact on their migration ability could mean the difference between survival and death. Ecologist Sonia Altizer studies how long distance migration in flying animals may also affect the spread and evolution of infectious disease. These beautiful insects face many threats. Habitat destruction is also taking a hit on them. But a look at their winter home is one of the most stunningly beautiful sights in nature!

    QUEST [#602H] Pump It Up: Heart Health Special Report Investigate the number one cause of death in America, heart disease, which kills close to 600,000 people each year - more than die from cancer, car accidents or AIDS. Meet a teenager trying to lower her risk; a heart attack patient and the team that saved her life, and a researcher working to one day rebuild a damaged heart from the inside out. duration 26:21   STEREO TVG
  • 7:00 am
    Going Blind This unique documentary hopes to increase public awareness of sight loss and low vision issues profoundly affecting the lives of more and more people around the world. Peabody Award winning director Joseph Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision.
    After years of slowly losing his sight, Joe decides to take action: to investigate how people all over the country respond to vision loss. His search begins small, with people Joe meets on the streets of his hometown New York City and gradually leads him to places and people around the country, of all different ages and backgrounds. Each has a fascinating story about dealing with the vision loss caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections and accidents. This program interweaves Joe's story with that of his fellow subjects and invites us into the intimate spaces of the visually impaired and blind.

    War Against Microbes, The Producer Michael Schwarz (Mystery of Memory, The Body's Secret Army, Botany of Desire, Muhammad: Legacy of A Prophet), brings his gift for unraveling complex topics to the subject of infectious diseases. In the past century, the tremendous expansion of scientific knowledge about the causes of infectious diseases has helped to more than double average global life expectancy. But as far as we've come, we still face some very daunting scientific challenges. The War Against Microbes takes viewers on an eye-opening journey through some of the most important advances in our understanding of infectious diseases, focusing on the relentless efforts of Nobel Prize laureates to uncover the mysteries of the body's smallest adversaries. From the dawn of bacteriology up through today's cutting-edge research, each generation of scientists continues to pursue the same question: can we one day declare victory in the war against microbes? The filmmakers travel to California to examine the effects of polio on a survivor and then look at the work of generations of scientiest who defied conventional wisdom as they searched for a vaccine. In Australia, we meet Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, who in the 1980s encountered steep resistance when they found evidence that bacteria called helicobacter pylori caused stomach ulcers - a discovery that flew in the face of conventional medical wisdom. But nearly two decades later, Marshall and Warren were rewarded for their tenacity with the 2005 Nobel Prize. The War Against Microbes charts both the progress we've made in understanding infectious diseases and the challenges that still remain. As Barry Marshall puts it, "we have come a very long way in infectious disease science over the last hundred or so years. But don't assume that everything has been discovered." duration 28:52   STEREO TVG
