    Globe Trekker [#1030] Papua New Guinea The trekkers explore New Britain Island, the largest in the Bismarck Archipelago of Papua New Guinea. Inhabited by the indigenous Papuans and the Austronesians, the island was captured by the Japanese during World War II. Today the island's traditional cultures are diverse and complex but there are several ancient traditions which remain active today, especially the Dukduk Secret Society. Next, we visit the township of Rabaul, once the provincial capital until it was destroyed in 1994 by a massive volcanic eruption. Rabaul is still a superb location for scuba diving, snorkeling and wreck dives. We travel onwards to the stunningly beautiful island of Bougainville, named after a French navigator, and an excellent location for wreck-diving and sea kayaking. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nature [#2811] 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 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#111H] Moving Beyond War Nine years after Baghdad erupted in "shock and awe," we're once again hearing in America the drumbeat for war in the Middle East. Now, the bull's-eye is on Iran. But what we need, more than a simple change of target, is a complete change in perspective, says Andrew Bacevich, a West Point graduate and Vietnam veteran-turned-scholar who's become one of the most perceptive observers of America's changing role in the world.
    This week, Bill Moyers and Bacevich explore the futility of "endless" wars and provide a reality check on the rhetoric of American exceptionalism. "Are we so unimaginative, so wedded to the reliance on military means that we cannot conceive of any way to reconcile our differences with groups and nations in the Islamic world, and therefore bring this conflict to an end?" Bacevich asks Moyers. Bacevich also answers the question of whether Iran is a direct threat to America with a definitive no. "Whatever threat Iran poses is very, very limited," he tells Moyers, "and certainly does not constitute any kind of justification for yet another experiment with preventive war."

    Washington Week [#5139H] * Investigators with the Justice Department were in Florida today meeting with the parents of a teenager who was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer last month. Trayvon Martin, 17, was unarmed when he was shot to death by George Zimmerman, 28, who says he was acting in self-defense. Zimmerman has not been arrested or charged in the case and late today the police chief involved announced he was temporarily stepping down. The shooting has ignited protests and international attention and raised new questions about Florida's Stand-Your-Ground law. Pierre Thomas of ABC News will have the latest on the Justice Department probe.
    * Mitt Romney won the Illinois primary then picked up a key endorsement from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush but it was a gaffe by one of his own staffers that has shaken up the race. A campaign spokesperson said that for the fall campaign Romney could hit a "reset button" and compared it to clearing the screen of an Etch A Sketch toy. The comment has given opponents both a prop and a perfect phrase with which to go after the Republican frontrunner. Dan Balz of The Washington Post and Sam Youngman of Reuters return from the campaign trail to report on the 2012 race for the White House.
    * House Budget Committee Chair Paul Ryan unveiled the Republican's 2013 budget plan this week and reignited a major election year budget battle.
