    Shark Island Whaler: The Real-Life Sequel to Moby Dick Two Brothers was a Nantucket whaleship that sank on the night of February 11, 1823, off the French Frigate Shoals. The ship's captain was George Pollard, Jr., former captain of the famous whaleship Essex. The wreck was discovered in 2008 (announced on February 11, 2011) by a team of marine archaeologists working on an expedition for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the PapahAe? naumokuAe?kea Marine National Monument. duration 28:45   STEREO TVG
  • 2:30 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

    Golden Game: Baseball In Sacramento This program nostalgically recounts Sacramento's 150-year baseball history: its early teams and ballparks, the players, important victories, unresolved controversies and unforgettable moments. Among other highlights, the film chronicles the Sacramento Solons' dramatic come-from-behind victory against rival Los Angeles for the 1942 Pacific Coast League series title, the mysterious fire at Edmonds Field (and why some believe the team set it), and the 2000 opening of Raley Field, home of the triple-A champion River Cats. Contemporary footage and archival stills from baseball's early days, along with comments from former players, game announcers, historians and fans, reveal the indelible impression baseball has left on Sacramento and the mark Sacramento has left on the game. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Tomorrow: Japan Beyond 3/11 [#231] Projects for Future Generations? A Year at the OECD Tohoku School The Canadian filmmaker Nicolina Lanni has been producing a documentary on debris from the March 2011disaster that has washed up on North American shores. The items testify to what happened and tell stories about their owners. Lanni sorted through some of this debris and tried to return items of likely emotional importance to their rightful owners. Her efforts spawned a movement across the western coast of North America to do the same. Some people even visited Japan to return items to their owners. This program focuses on the latest developments and considers the importance and significance of these efforts, looking at what was lost and what was saved. duration 28:12   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    Tomorrow: Japan Beyond 3/11 [#229] Teenagers in the Disaster Hit Communities Striving to be Citizens of the World The Paris-based OECD (Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development) launched the OECD Tohoku School project in the spring of 2012 with the co-operation of the Japanese Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry and educational institutions in Japan's devastated Tohoku region. The two-year project aims to mentor teenagers in the Tohoku region so that they might carve out international careers. Some 80 teenagers take part in the project. International business people and journalists mentor them in organization, creativity and international awareness with the goal to bring "Tohoku to the world." Planning and fund-raising are underway for an event in Paris in summer 2014. Twenty of the participating teenagers went to Paris in May 2013 to help organize the event and meet with local teenagers. This program will look at what the teenagers are learning in the Tohoku School project, how they are maturing and where they hope to go in the future. duration 28:12   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
