    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1501] Surgical Slimmers In spite of the risks, people are lining up to solve their weight problems in the operating room.

    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1502] Cars That Think The fully automatic car may be down the road a ways, but cars that do your thinking for you are just around the corner - they watch out for hazards, they listen to you, they read your lips, they even know when you're distracted. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nature [#2506H] Parrots in the Land of Oz Parrots are everywhere in Australia. From the outrageous drumming palm cockatoo in the tropical rainforests, to the shameless red female eclectus parrot of the far north who keeps a harem of males, to the golden-shouldered parrot in the woodlands that excavates a nest in a termite mound, to the incredibly prolific budgerigars of the deserts, a spectacular array of parrots has evolved here. Big and small, rare and bizarre, colorful and intelligent, they are the most conspicuous and exotic birds on this amazing island continent. duration 56:16   SRND51 TVPG

    Nova [#3711H] Building The Great Cathedrals Carved from 100 million pounds of stone, soaring effortlessly atop a spiderweb of masonry, Gothic cathedrals are marvels of human achievement and artistry. But how did medieval builders reach such spectacular heights? Consuming the labor of entire towns, sometimes taking 100 years to build, these architectural marvels were crafted from just hand tools and stone. Many now teeter on the brink of catastrophic collapse. To save them, an international team of engineers, architects, art historians and computer scientists searches the naves, bays, and bell towers for clues to how the dream of these heavenly temples on earth came true. Nova's teams perform hands-on experiments to investigate and reveal the architectural secrets that the cathedral builders used to erect their soaring, glass-filled walls. This program reveals the hidden formulas, drawn from the pages of the Bible itself, that drove medieval builders ever upward. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
