    Nightly Business Report [#32072] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, the Dow aims for 10 in a row. The S&P aims for an all-time high.

    Ideas In Action with Jim Glassman [#246] The New Battle Field: Life After War for America's New Veterans The issue of taxation has become a huge part of the Presidential campaign. While people are focused on taxes on a national level, the idea of eliminating the personal income tax on the state level could affect the economic well being of voters just as significantly. Several states have eliminated the personal income tax and there are movements in several more to pass similar measures.

  • 5:00 am
    Conquistadors with Michael Wood [#103] The Search for El Dorado Episode three begins in Quito, Ecuador, and relates the amazing story of the 16-month Spanish expedition (1541-42), led by Gonzalo Pizarro, to find El Dorado, the mythical land of gold. Crossing the Andes with pack animals, Wood and his team hack a path through the forests, following in Pizarro's footsteps to the Coca river, where they build a balsa raft and sail down to the river Napo, following the route of the conquistadors. There, on Christmas day 1541, the Spanish expedition split, with 60 men under Francisco Orellana sailing ( contrary to orders) all the way down the Amazon to the sea in a makeshift boat: an achievement that was "less of a journey, more of a miracle." They were the first outsiders to see the interior of Amazonia and the first to discover and travel the length of the river. On their journey, they encountered unknown empires and vast populations that were later wiped out by disease and subsequently forgotten. The program recounts Orellana's story, as well as the tale of the retreat of the army, under Orellana's cousin and boyhood friend, Gonzalo Pizarro, an almost Shakespearean tale of revenge recorded in their letters and the diary kept by the expedition. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Conquistadors with Michael Wood [#104] All The World Is Human In the last segment, the story shifts to the North American continent. In April 1528, 400 conquistadors, dreaming of gold, land in Florida to begin the exploration and conquest of what is now the southern United States. After terrible months of trekking northward, fighting off hostile Indians in the swamps of Florida, they build boats and try to escape to Mexico. Most are never seen again. This is the tale of four survivors shipwrecked on the shores of Texas and in particular that of Alvar Nu many years later. Living among the Indians of the coast for five years, Cabeza de Vaca finally rejoins the three others; together they embark on an epic walk across America to the Pacific coast, reappearing in Mexico eight years after they were lost. Riding through the north Mexican desert, sleeping at prehistoric campsites and staying in caves with the Tarahumara Indians in the wild gorges by Copper Canyon, Wood travels to the Pacific along ancient Indian trails walked by the Spaniards and visits the spectacular Native- American city of Casas Grandes. Cabeza de Vaca, in a book recounting his adventures, came to identify with the Indians against his fellow Spanish and Christians. At the end of this episode, Wood considers how the message of people like Cabeza de Vaca awakened the conscience of Europe about the brutality of the conquistadors, the justice of the conquest and the rights of the native peoples of the New World. duration 56:25   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Summer of Birds This documentary details a relatively unknown chapter in the life of renowned naturalist painter, ornithologist and literary figure John James Audubon. Based on the acclaimed book, A Summer of Birds: John James Audubon at Oakley House by award-winning writer Danny Heitman, it chronicles the formative summer Audubon spent in Louisiana in 1821, in the lush surroundings of Oakley Plantation in West Feliciana Parish. There, Audubon began or completed nearly half of the 435 pictures in his famous "Birds of America" collection. Narrated by Emmy-winning actress Sela Ward, the film explores the profound influence of Louisiana's natural environment and birdlife on Audubon's development as an artist and writer, and conversely, Audubon's undeniable impact on the region and its cultural identity.
    Today, the Audubon mystique is deeply ingrained in Louisiana culture, where annual community rituals keep it alive. Each year, visitors flock to Oakley Plantation, the Audubon Pilgrimage and the Audubon Bird Fest, a three-day bird-watching expedition. This program tells this colorful story through Audubon's most iconic bird images; historical re-enactments; original journal entries; interviews with wildlife painters, scientists and conservationists working to preserve Audubon's legacy; and scenes of the region's wild and fragile landscapes and its rare and threatened bird species. Cameras accompany modern-day birding enthusiasts and naturalists through Louisiana's bayous and woodsy pathways to experience their "paradise of birds" the same way Audubon did nearly 200 years ago.
