But each year, the polar bears struggle for extended periods on dwindling fat reserves, waiting for the opportunity to hunt on sea ice that takes longer to freeze. In early spring, Morgan joins local hunters in Barrow, the northernmost city in Alaska, as they go out on their own hunts, facing some of the same challenges as the bears. In late spring, Morgan travels to the North Slope of the Brooks Range, where countless thousands of caribou cover the ground for miles.

  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#3903H] 3D Spies of WWII Hitler's scientists developed terrifying new weapons of mass destruction. Alarmed by rumors about advanced rockets and missiles, Allied intelligence recruited a team of brilliant minds from British universities and Hollywood studios to a country house near London. Here, they secretly pored over millions of air photos shot at great risk over German territory by specially converted, high-flying Spitfires. Peering at the photos through 3D stereoscopes, the team spotted telltale clues that revealed hidden Nazi rocket bases. The photos led to devastating Allied bombing raids that were crucial setbacks to the German rocket program and helped ensure the success of the D-Day landings. With 3D graphics that recreate exactly what the photo spies saw, NOVA tells the suspenseful, previously untold story of air photo intelligence that played a vital role in defeating Hitler. duration 56:31   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

  • 7:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#904H] Japanese Supersub Spring, 1946. Ten months after the end of World War II, an explosion rocked the Pacific off the coast of Hawaii. America had just destroyed one of Japan's most advanced weapons systems. But this was no belated attack against the defeated Japanese. Rather, it was an attempt to keep an advanced, top-secret submarine out of the hands of the Russians. What was this sub and where had it come from? This program investigates, revealing the startling story of Japan's successful creation of a technological masterpiece-an aircraft carrier submarine that could blow up the Panama Canal, reach the US main land undetected, and unleash panic-inducing air attacks on American civilians. How close did Japan's secret sub come to attacking America? And how did America's own top-secret super-weapon put an end to the Japanese threat? duration 54:47   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
