    Secrets of the Dead [#1103H] China's Terracotta Warriors The extraordinary story of China's 8000 terracotta warriors begins two centuries before the birth of Christ. The First Emperor of China was preparing an extravagant tomb for his journey into the afterlife - and decreed that he be protected forever by a monumental army. Since then no one has seen these ancient warriors in their original splendor, brightly painted and fully armed, ready to protect their Emperor for all eternity. Now this once mighty army will be returned to its former glory for the first time. Row upon row of life-size, lavishly painted warriors will rise from the dust of two millennia. < br>But how was a terracotta army of this size made in less than 2 years using the technology of 2200 years ago? Led by archaeologist Agnes Hsu, the investigation shows that the Chinese may have Henry Ford beat by more than 2000 years with their own assembly line used to produce the 8000-strong terracotta army. After the revelation of what the army really looked like when it was buried, biometric analysis to find out if these clay soldiers were individually modeled on living men. The tantalizing possibility is that the warriors are the actual representations of the warriors who served the Emperor in life and then became part of his Spirit Army. duration 54:46   STEREO TVPG-V (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.

  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Lost Bird Project This captivating nature documentary charts sculptor Todd McGrain's efforts to memorialize five birds - the Great Auk, Carolina Parakeet, Labrador Duck, Passenger Pigeon and Heath Hen - driven to extinction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It follows McGrain and his brother-in-law Andy as they embark on a road trip in search of the last-known locations of the birds and seek permission to install McGrain's six-foot-tall bronze sculptures on those sites. Travelling from the tropical swamps of Florida to the rocky coasts of Newfoundland to the shores of Martha's Vineyard, the men spend more than two years scouting locations, talking to park rangers, speaking at town meetings and battling bureaucracy in their effort to gather support for the project. An elegy to the five birds, the program is a thoughtful and sometimes humorous look at the artist and his mission. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Nature [#2603] American Eagle Unique to North America, the bald eagle is the continent's most recognizable aerial predator, with a shocking white head, electric yellow beak and penetrating eyes. In the 1960s, this symbol of the United States became an emblem of environmental degradation, as the pesticide DDT and other human pressures brought it to the brink of extinction. Following their protection as an endangered species, bald eagles have come roaring back. Photographed by three-time Emmy-winning cinematographer Neil Rettig, this first-ever HD hour on bald eagles focuses on the drama of the nest. Even in the best of times, it's a surprisingly tough struggle to maintain a one-ton home and raise chicks until they can hunt on their own. This is an intimate portrait of these majestic raptors' lives in the wild. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
