    History Detectives [#207Z] Ventriloquist Dummy/Witch's House/Poems * Ventriloquist Dummy - An African-American woman in Brooklyn, New York, has her father's black ventriloquist dummy, "Sam. " Her father, John Cooper, was the first famous African-American ventriloquist. In a time of minstrel stereotypes, did "Sam" help transform how Americans viewed race in the early 20th century? How was this dummy created and was it meant to be a protest against racial prejudice?
    * Witch's House - Could a house in Essex County, Massachusetts, have once belonged to an accused witch? HD heads to New England to research the likelihood with local historians and a descendant of the accused witch, Martha Carrier, who was executed by hanging in 1692 during the infamous Salem Witch Trials. Might the woman who was called the "Queen of Hell" have owned this home?
    * Poems - In the first half of the 20th century, nearly 250,000 Chinese immigrants attempted to enter the United States. Because of discrimination against Chinese and laws meant to impede their passage, most were detained and interrogated on Angel Island, America's West Coast immigration center in San Francisco. The experience of these immigrants is documented in hundreds of poems that have been carved into the walls of the Angel Island detention center. Many of these have been translated, but little is known about the authors. Kathleen Wong, a second-generation Chinese American, believes that her grandfather and great- grandfather spent time on the island and that her great-grandfather may have died there. She knows little about her ancestors' experience on Angel Island and their possible connection with the poems. HD investigates the story of her family's passage to the United States to find out if any of the poems were written by her ancestors.

    Nova scienceNOW [#604H] Can I Eat That? What are the secrets behind your favorite foods? Why are some treats - like chocolate chip cookies - delectable, while others - like cookies made with mealworms - disgusting? You may think you understand what makes something sweet, salty or bitter, but David Pogue gets a taste of a much more complicated truth as he ventures into labs and kitchens where everything from apple pie to Thanksgiving turkey to juicy grasshoppers is diced, sliced, dissected and put under the microscope. If scientists can uncover exactly what's behind the mouth-watering flavors and textures we take for granted every day, could they help us enjoy our food more - without packing on the pounds? duration 55:17   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 8:00 am
    Miller Center Forums [#1601] Michael Kranish - The Real Romney Mitt Romney has masterfully positioned himself as the front-runner for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. In "The Real Romney, " a definitive, unflinching biography by Boston Globe investigative reporter Michael Kranish, with Scott Helman, readers will finally discover the true Romney. Even though he's become a household name, the former Massachusetts governor remains an enigma to many in America, his character and core convictions elusive, his record little known. Who is the man behind that sweep of dark hair, distinguished white sideburns, and high-wattage smile? Romney often seems to be two people at once: a savvy politician, and someone who will simply say anything to win. A business visionary, and a calculating dealmaker. A man comfortable in his faith and with family, and one who can have trouble connecting with average voters. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
