    This American Land [#201] Critical Colorado, Checkups for Manatees, Appalachian Forests The Colorado River brings drinking water, irrigation, recreation and livelihood to millions of people in the West. But it's clear now that there's not an unlimited supply of this precious resource. Business owners on and near the river are working to make sure their neighbors, and policy makers in Washington, get a complete picture of how critical this river is. Traveling through Arizona and northern Mexico, Bruce Burkhardt shows us there's a lot that needs to be done to protect these waters now and for the future.
    Different hikers get different inspiration from the Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee. An artist takes photos that she will later paint; a woodworker studies how trees grow to get ideas for the furniture he builds; and a retired Marine gives back to his community by clearing fallen limbs from the trail. They all support a Congressional designation of this beautiful area as wilderness, so it will be preserved from development for future generations. From the amphibians to the wildflowers to the fishes the array of diversity in the southern Appalachian forest is just astounding!
    Shy, smart, curious and vulnerable: Manatees are slow-moving marine mammals that have not had it easy in recent decades. Diseases and red tide, but mostly strikes from boats and propellers, have killed and injured hundreds of them. Both Florida and federal authorities are stepping up protection of manatees, especially in their winter sanctuaries on the state's west coast. Veterinarians and volunteers conduct physicals on these gentle giants to gauge their health and long- term outlook. Our host Caroline Raville swims with some manatees to bring us the story!
    Removing a dam can cause big changes to a community, and to the environment. Before cities make the decision to take down a dam that's either deteriorating or no longer needed, they must be prepared. Researchers at Dartmouth College use sophisticated tools to study river systems to help predict what will happen when the dam is gone. It's all about "shoring up" what we know about how rivers flow, in order to make smart choices when it is time for a dam to come down.

    Manifest Destiny [#101] To Conquer Or Redeem Part 1 focuses on the Spanish-American War of 1898 when the United States under President William McKinley and Vice President Theodore Roosevelt set out to free colonial Cuba from the cruelty of imperial Spain and ended up, after a brutal guerilla war, with a colony of its own - the Philippines. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Aristide and the Endless Revolution A complex historical truth emerges in Nicolas Rossier's intelligent examination revealing the oft suppressed story of the 2004 coup d'etat in Haiti, as well as the systematic violence and human rights violations that erupted under the interim government. An interview with the deposed president, Jean-Bertranc Aristide in Pretoria, South Africa, is juxtaposed with the views of a wider range of supporters and critics, including US Assistant Secretary of State Roger Noriega. It is not Aristide and the Lavalas supporters who emerge looking like thugs but international interests concerned with suppressing popular democracy and ending the reforms Aristide was capable of making - despite embargoes and the need to service a debt for loans Haiti never received. History repeats itself in Haiti in 2004 in that the former parish priest had already been deposed as president in 1991 with CIA support. His kidnapping marked the fourth American intervention into Haiti in 90 years. This was also not the first intervention by France. In 1801, Napoleon had the leader of free Haiti Toussaint L'Ouverture, seized and deported to prison in France where he died. While faced with the strangulation of aid, Aristide had begun a campaign for reparations. This provocative investigation draws out the central place of international history in Haiti's poverty. The film features an exclusive interview with Jean-Bertrand Aristide and other great personalities such as Dr. Paul Farmer, Assistant Secretary of State Roger Noriega, John Shattuck, Gerald Latortue, Maxine Waters, Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, Laennec Hurbon, Guire Poulard, Noam Chomsky, Timothey Carney, Orlando Marville, Kim Ives, Rav Laforest, Brian Concannon, Mario Dupay, Danny Glover, James Dobbins, Claude Moise and many other Haitian voices. duration 58:59   STEREO TVPG

    Natural Heroes [#410] The Sea and Me Once Upon a Tide: A storyteller, played by Academy Award-winner Linda Hunt, speaks to us of a spell that has been cast causing everyone to forget about the importance of the ocean. One little girl, however, helps us realize how we can all break the spell to save the ocean, and ourselves. Coral Connections: Millions of people visit the Mexican Riviera Maya every year to enjoy the white beaches, the sun, and the natural beauty. Few realize the importance of the reef, and how personal choices impact the water system, reef, and the entire region. Coral Connections encourages you to become a force for positive change. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG
