    Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades Travel with filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus along the Kissimmee River and surrounding regions. Meet the "Keepers of the Land" and experience a "sense of place" in the vast open spaces in the cattle country of Florida's private and public lands. Throughout the centuries, the Everglades have inspired strong emotion and debate among soldiers and poets, politicians and citizens. Its history is as broad and sprawling as the "River of Grass" itself. Although many stories have been told about the Everglades - from drainage to restoration - few have been told about where it all begins: the Kissimmee River Basin. Restoration and protection of the natural values of this vast, watery landscape may well hold the key to restoration of the Greater Everglades ecosystem. The Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades invites you to take a trip up the Kissimmee Valley back through time to discover the well-reasoned, yet unforeseen consequences of a flood control project that turned the 103-mile long meandering river full of life, into a 52-mile long, multi-million dollar over-engineered channel that drained the surrounding wetlands, caused the disappearance of large flocks of wading birds, and a significant decline of an abundant freshwater fishery. "Kissimmee Basin area ... that's one of the areas of Florida that you can still go to and, if you look for it, it's there. You can see Florida just like it was seventy-five, a hundred, or more years ago." Patrick Smith, Author, A Land Remembered. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG

    Bombing of Germany: American Experience [#2203H] On September 1, 1939 -- the first day of World War II in Europe -- President Franklin D. Roosevelt appealed to the warring nations to "under no circumstances undertake the bombardment from the air of civilian populations." Just six years later, British and American Allied forces had carried out a bombing campaign of unprecedented might over Germany's cities, claiming the lives of nearly half a million civilians. From International Emmy Award and Peabody Award-winning producer Zvi Dor-Ner (Israel's Next War, House of Saud) comes "The Bombing of Germany" a film that examines the defining moments of the offensive that led the U.S. across a moral divide. Weaving together interviews with WWII pilots and historians, and archival footage of the bombing and its aftermath, the film is a reminder of the dilemma imposed by war's civilian casualties, a topic that continues to resonate as America enters the eighth year of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. duration 54:32   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

    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.

    Moyers & Company [#131H] Between Two Worlds: Life on the Border No writer understands the border culture between Mexico and the US more intimately than Luis Alberto Urrea, this week's guest on an encore broadcast. His own life is the stuff of great novels. Son of a Mexican father and Anglo mother, Urrea grew up first in Tijuana and then just across the border in San Diego. Over the years he has produced a series of acclaimed novels, including The Hummingbird's Daughter, The Devil's Highway, and his latest, Queen of America - each a rich and revealing account of the people of the borderlands that join and separate our two nations.
    Earlier this year, a number of books were removed from Tucson, Arizona classrooms when the Tucson school district eliminated a Mexican-American studies program on the accusation it was "divisive." The program included references to Urrea's work. Urrea talks with Bill about that episode as he unfolds the modern reality of life on the border.

    Washington Week [#5206H] New polls show the presidential race remains in a dead heat with fewer than 90 days until Election Day. A new set of New York Times/CBS News polls in 3 key swing states shows President Obama leading in Virginia and Wisconsin, but trailing in Colorado where Mitt Romney leads Obama 50%-45%. But when it comes to favorability, Mr. Obama holds a 13-point edge over Mr. Romney (53% to 40%) in the latest Washington Post/ABC News national survey.
    There are some mixed results among the polls, but most experts agree the election boils down to a handful of battleground states. That's why both campaigns are targeting key states and select groups of voters. Both candidates are out campaigning in crucial swing states like Iowa and Colorado hoping to convert undecided voters into full-fledged supporters. And Obama and Romney are both aiming their messages at the same group of voters: women and the working class.
    While the candidates continue their grassroots outreach with voters, outside political groups that support each candidate are raising eyebrows with their controversial ads about welfare and healthcare that have the Obama and Romney campaigns crying foul.
    Plus time is ticking down for Mitt Romney to announce his choice of a vice presidential running mate. We will examine the state of the 2012 presidential race with:
    Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times;
    Beth Reinhard of National Journal;
    and John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times.
