  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Skeletons of the Sahara This film tells the story of scientist Paul Sereno's amazing discovery of a prehistoric human burial ground in the middle of one of the world's most forbidding desert. Like many great scientific discoveries, this one happens by accident. Sereno, one of the world's leading experts in finding fossils of dinosaurs and ancient crocodiles, is on an expedition to Niger, in Saharan Africa. Six weeks into a three-month journey, Sereno's team makes an unexpected discovery. They find bones all right, but these bones don't belong to prehistoric beasts -- they are human bones, the last remnants of a people who lived from 10,000 to 5,000 years ago when this now forbidding landscape was a thriving culture on the edge of a vast lake. Sereno's team counts the remains of dozens within a few minutes. "Skeletons of the Sahara" tells the story of this find and what it reveals to us about two civilizations that once thrived in what is now the world's largest desert. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG
  • 7:00 am
    Life On Fire [#101] Icelandic Volcanoes The 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland provoked economic chaos by paralyzing a major air traffic network for days. This eruption, however, was mild. Much more powerful volcanoes in Iceland are ready to wake up. Through spectacular aerial footage of this country, which is an accumulation of lava and ash, a maze of craters and faults, the episode tries to discern which volcano could wake up next and what the consequences of a major eruption are likely to be. Europe has come to realize that a colossal power sleeps beneath Iceland, while Icelanders for centuries have learned to live amongst their volcanoes. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
