  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1306] Deep Crisis It's no accident that the ocean inhabitants we humans like to eat are the ones with the most uncertain futures. We follow efforts by biologists to figure out what's going on with salmon, once abundant on both East and West coasts of North America and now in catastrophic decline; and with the ocean-ranging giant bluefin tuna, which scientists have recently succeeded in tracking on its epic journeys between Europe and America. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Nature [#2609H] Kilauea: Mountain of Fire Kilauea, on Hawaii's Big Island is the world's most active volcano. Its latest eruption began in 1983 and it hasn't stopped since. Since that time it has created 544 acres of new land and has consumed 200 homes. But as we watch nature's own fireworks display and witness the devastation wrought by flowing lava, we've also been able to observe a process that's central to life on these islands. The most spectacular moment of creation is when lava pours into the ocean creating new land and it is here that filmmaker Paul Atkins finds himself getting a shot few have ever filmed - the cataclysmic meeting of 2000 degree lava and 75 degree ocean water - a sight to behold. duration 55:46   SRND51 TVG
  • 8:00 am
    Nova [#3710H] Mt. St. Helens Back from the Dead When Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980, every living thing in the blast zone was buried beneath 300 feet of avalanche debris, covered with steaming mud and, finally, topped with a superheated layer of frothy rock from deep within the earth. It seemed as though Mount St. Helens might remain a wasteland forever. When biologist Charlie Crisafulli first flew over the disaster zone, finding no sign of life, little did he realize that his own life would be forever changed. Crisafulli has remained at the site for 27 years, documenting the dramatic return of plant and animal life to the barren landscape and pioneering a new understanding of the interaction between geologic forces and the life surrounding the mountain. Nova brings viewers on a journey of a landscape brought back from the dead. duration 55:01   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
