    Focus On Europe [#3111] Old Spy Habits Die Hard In Romania ROMANIA: SPY HABITS DIE HARD - A former Romanian spy has won a court case against his own country. But his victims are still waiting for the full story. Romania's communist-era secret police, the Securitate, was one of the world's most feared. But it appears its successor intelligence agency, the SRI, adopted the old surveillance practices for many years after the overthrow of the Ceausescu regime. The evidence comes from protocols drawn up by a former Securitate spy. In 1996 he went public. The Romanian authorities sentenced him to two years in jail - but the former spy has now been vindicated by the European Court of Human Rights.
    MOSCOW: DIZZYING HEIGHTS - The Russian capital is home to half of Europe's tallest sykscrapers. For one particular group of young people, they're the ultimate challenge. Ice and snow are no obstacle to these young Muscovites. They scale the dizzy heights of the city's skyscrapers whatever the weather - and without any harnesses. Until now just a bit of illegal fun, their escapades could now become a professional career. The billionaire owner of Moscow's tallest tower has expressed his support and a personal connection to the youngsters and their adventures.
    ICELAND: FISH SUFFOCATE IN FJORD - Iceland is currently seeing an environmental disaster affecting its fish stocks. Around 50,000 tons of herring have died in a fjord there, and are now rotting away after being washed up on its banks. Experts suspect that low levels of oxygen are to blame for the mass of dead fish. What's more, the oil excreted by the herring can in turn become a danger for birds by clogging up their feathers and wings. We take a look at what the local community is doing to get rid of the problem.

    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#401] Everyday Sunshine This lively and loving documentary, narrated by Laurence Fishburne, charts the turbulent history of the pioneering all-black rock band Fishbone. Formed in 1979 in South Central (Los Angeles), Fishbone landed a major label record deal soon after its members graduated high school. However, after this early success, the band struggled for acceptance in a racially stratified music industry, while their unabashedly hybrid style kept them proudly out of fashion for more than three decades. Through frank interviews with the band, including eccentric co-founders Angelo Moore and Norwood Fisher - as well as Flea, Gwen Stefani, Ice-T, Perry Farrell, Branford Marsalis, George Clinton, Tim Robbins, Gogol Bordello, ?uestlove and others - the film reveals the creative alchemy, the clash of egos, and the enduring friendships behind Fishbone's storied career. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

  • 6:30 am
    Predator Legends Grizzlies, cougars and wolves - creatures full of metaphor and part of the spirit of the West - are featured in this program, which goes in search of the meaning these large predators hold for various people of the Pacific Northwest. The production was filmed in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming amid the sweeping landscape where these animals live. The camera captures images of the living legends and the people who know them. Nez Perce elder Horace Axtell says the animals are "in some sense, like brothers." He says it is about being connected: "All of these are connected in a way that old people used to live a long time ago." Doug Peacock, author of Grizzly Years and a Vietnam veteran, headed into the backcountry to heal himself and met North America's largest bears, bumping against grizzlies accidentally. "Only an experience that original, that primal, that powerful would have let me exorcise my own ghosts." Author Rick Bass says, "I don't think we'll ever know how much they're intertwined with the place." The wilderness landscape of the American West has shaped the American culture, he says, and the connection to the large animals of the wilderness is still out there "even if you don't feel it." duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#2811H] Survivors of the Firestorm The bush fires that tore through the Australian state of Victoria in February 2009 incinerated over a million acres of land, including key mountain ash forest ecosystems. Fires are a natural force of nature which spur regeneration, but the immediate aftermath of this giant firestorm was devastation. Kangaroos and koalas, wombats and wallabies, endangered possums and gliders, lizards, echidnas, birds of all kinds, and even fish that lived among these eucalypts were overcome by the flames. Millions died. But burned and traumatized survivors tenderly nursed back to health at wildlife hospitals showed a remarkable ability to bounce back, and the environment an extraordinary capacity for healing. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
