    This American Land [#209] Arctic White Geese, Veterans in the Great Outdoors, Tracking a Coral Killer Arctic White Geese: Snow geese and Ross's geese make an almost unimaginable 3,000-mile migration each year. So it's no wonder they enjoy spending a month or so in eastern Oregon, "bulking up" on tender grasses and nutritious bugs. The folks from Oregon Field Guide have captured the beauty of thousands of these birds on their stopover to the Arctic. Dedicated "citizen scientists" spend time during the birds' respite to study them. Some say the sky is so filled with geese that it often looks like a snowstorm!
    Veterans in the Great Outdoors: Some military veterans returning from combat have physical scars. Others have mental stresses that can also impact their families. We join the Sierra Club's Stacy Bare, a U.S. Army veteran, on an adventure down the Colorado River, where veterans deepen their connections with the land, and one another. The camaraderie and the healing power of nature come through in this beautiful and rugged setting.
    Tracking a Coral Killer: It's a detective story that has unfolded in the waters off Key West, Florida. What's been killing the Elkhorn coral? Biologist Kathryn Sutherland has identified human sewage as the source of the coral-killing pathogen that causes white pox disease. Elkhorn coral was listed for protection as an endangered species in 2006, largely due to white pox disease. Sutherland works with water treatment facilities in south Florida to try to make sure water is cleared of this pathogen before it goes back into the Atlantic.

    QUEST [#608H] Agricultural Pests, Sylvia Earle As winters have become warmer, California is becoming more hospitable to destructive insect pests.

  • 7:00 am
    Nixon's The One: How Tricky Dick Stole The Sixties...and Changed America Forever Narrated by Dick Cavett, this program chronicles not only Richard Nixon's stunning victory in the 1968 presidential race, but the ways in which that historic election gave rise to Red State-Blue State America. Combining archival footage and original interviews with, among others, activist Tom Hayden, former Nixon advisor Kevin Phillips, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and historian David Maraniss, and bestselling author Rick Perlstein, it is anything but a nostalgic trip through the "flower power" decade. Rather, it's a sobering, wry look at how the Sixties divided us-and how Nixon stepped into the breach to claim the biggest prize of all. duration 53:25   STEREO TVPG

    Will Rogers and American Politics In the 1930s, with the United States mired in the Great Depression and teetering on the brink of a second World War, millions of Americans turned to a rope-twirling, plain-talking Cherokee cowboy for clarity, comfort and common sense. His plain-spoken musings, always delivered with a shy, sly smile, influenced the political landscape then and still resonate today. This program reveals how Oklahoma native Will Rogers emerged as one of the most powerful political voices in the United States. Bill Kurtis, former CBS news anchor and host of A&E's American Justice and Cold Case Files, narrates. The documentary charts Rogers' impact on American politics through rare archival film footage, photos and documents, and interviews with Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, actor Mickey Rooney, Cherokee Chief Chad Smith, comedian Lewis Black, former Oklahoma Gov. George Nigh, Rogers' grandniece and scholars. duration 56:46   TVG
