    Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose "Switzerland: Quest for the Sublime" Switzerland - a country of great peaks, waterfalls, glaciers and grand scenery - served as the birthplace of adventure tourism, the wellspring of ecotourism and an inspiration for organized tours into the wild. In his latest travel special, adventurer Richard Bangs sets off for old-world Europe, and explores the origins of adventure travel and searches for what philosophers and poets of the past called "the sublime." Bangs' quest to unearth the true meaning of "sublime" begins in the heart of Switzerland: Lucerne. Later, he travels to the chic winter resort of St. Moritz, climbs aboard the famous Glacier Express train and heads to Zermatt and experiences the rapture of the Matterhorn. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2402H] October 12, 2012 NEWS PANEL:
    CAMPAIGN UPDATE - Thursday night's debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan takes on new significance with the race remaining a tight one following last week's debate between President Obama and Gov. Romney. Meanwhile former President Clinton was in California to stump for Democratic congressional candidates and President Obama made a fundraising stop in San Francisco.
    PROPOSITIONS 34 & 36 - For the first time in more than 30 years, Californians will decide whether to abolish the death penalty, replacing it with life imprisonment without parole. Prop 34 advocates say repealing the penalty will save the state $100 million annually in the first few years. Prop 36 would revise the state's harsh 3 strikes law to impose a life sentence only when a new felony conviction is serious or violent.
    SAN FRANCISCO SHERIFF MIRKARIMI REINSTATED - Mirkarimi returned to work on Wednesday after a nearly 9-hour hearing Tuesday and a vote by 4 members of the Board of Supervisors to reinstate him. Mirkarimi was suspended without pay by Mayor Ed Lee for official misconduct after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of false imprisonment stemming from an altercation with his wife, Eliana Lopez. District Attorney George Gascon has called for the sheriff to forfeit oversight of issues related to domestic abuse in the department and efforts to recall him are already underway.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Scott Shafer, KQED Public Radio; and Barbara Taylor, KCBS
    INTERVIEW: AWARD-WINNING HUSBAND AND WIFE JOURNALISTS LYNN POVICH AND STEPHEN SHEPARD - Povich and 45 of her female colleagues made history in 1970 when they filed the first-ever sex discrimination lawsuit against their bosses at Newsweek magazine. Her new memoir, "The Good Girls Revolt", details the inspirational story behind this milestone in the women's movement. Former Businessweek editor-in-chief Shepard's book, "Deadlines and Disruptions", chronicles his nearly 50 years in journalism and the industry's turbulent transition to the digital age.

    Globe Trekker [#1120] 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 56:31   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nature [#3001H] Siberian Tiger Quest Chris Morgan has tracked large predators in some of the wildest and most remote places on Earth. He now embarks on his greatest challenge - to find and film the Siberian tiger living wild and free in Russia's far eastern forests. This film features the work of Korean cameraman, Sooyong Park, who spent two years in the forest tracking and filming the world's biggest cat. Park's tracking technique was very unconventional. He dug himself into an underground pit and, incredibly, waited there for weeks at a time, hoping for a glimpse of a wild tiger. Morgan adopts the same method while he shares with us firsthand the difficulty of seeing the rare Siberian tiger. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3913#] Secrets of the Viking Sword The Vikings were among the fiercest warriors of all time. Yet only a select few carried the ultimate weapon of their era: the feared Ulfberht sword. Fashioned using a process that would remain unknown to the Vikings' rivals for centuries, the Ulfberht was a revolutionary high-tech tool as well as a work of art. Considered one of the greatest swords ever made, it remains a fearsome weapon more than a millennium after it last saw battle. But how did Viking sword makers design and build the Ulfberht, and what was its role in history? Now, Nova uses cutting edge science and old-fashioned detective work to reconstruct the Ulfberht and finally unravel the "Mystery of the Viking Sword." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

Scientists have struggled for centuries to pinpoint the qualities that separate human beings from the millions of other animals who have evolved on this planet. David Pogue explores the traits we once thought were uniquely ours - language, tool-making, even laughter - to uncover their evolutionary roots. He traces some of the crucial steps that transformed cave men to accountants - and learns how much of his own DNA came from a Neanderthal ancestor. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    This American Land [#210] Montana Wilderness, Bald Eagle Recovery, Lionfish Derby, Crocodile Man Montana Wilderness: There's an ambitious plan to protect 700,000 acres of new wilderness in Montana. And after many years of argument, it looks like local residents, loggers, hikers, and conservation groups have put aside their differences so nature is the big winner. You'll meet one veteran outdoorsman, Smoke Elser, who's almost as comfortable in this back woods as the elk and the bears are!
    Bald Eagle Recovery: It was almost a national tragedy. The bold symbol the United States, the bald eagle, was nearly wiped out when pesticides interfered with their breeding. Our national bird has made quite a comeback, but there are still mysteries to solve in keeping the population healthy. Oregon Field Guide takes us to a "convocation, " a gathering of these regal birds, and introduces us to some of the heroes who saved them from extinction.
    Lionfish Derby: It's one of the most dramatic displays of how an invasive species can upset an ecosystem. Lionfish, originally from Asia, have found a comfortable home in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Government and conservation organizations have come up with some sporty ways to control these aggressive fish, because they are competing with commercially important species like snapper and grouper. We'll take you to one "Lionfish Derby."
    Crocodile Man: "If it can't bite you, it's not interesting," laughs Mississippi State University biologist David Ray. Ray does very interesting work, studying alligators, crocodiles, bats, and flies, among other creatures. Mapping alligator and crocodile genomes is helping scientists with everything from trying to save the odd looking Indian gharial, to tracing the links between modern reptiles, dinosaurs, and birds.

    Moyers & Company [#140H] Justice Not Politics * This week, James Balog, one of the world's premier cinema-photographers, explains how "the earth is having a fever." At tremendous risk to his own safety, Balog has been documenting the erosion of glaciers in Switzerland, Greenland, Iceland, and Alaska. He joins Bill to share his photos and discoveries, describing his process and transformation from climate change skeptic to true believer. Balog's soon-to-be-released film, Chasing Ice, is a breathtaking account of climate change in action.
    * Afterward, Bill explores a judicial system under partisan attack. 38 states now elect their high court judges. Over the last decade, $200 million - much of it secret and tied to partisan agendas - has been pouring into these judicial campaigns. In Florida, Pennsylvania, and Iowa, for example, justices are being targeted by radical groups that abhor judicial independence and want the courts to reflect their own political biases.
    In Iowa, a state whose judicial system has been praised for its fairness and impartiality, the political and religious Right ousted 3 justices in 2010 over marriage equality, and is now trying to take down a fourth over the same issue. But this time a bipartisan coalition called Justice Not Politics is fighting back. Its co-founders - Democrat Sally Pederson and Republican Joy Corning, each of whom served Iowa for 8 years as lieutenant governor - talk with Bill about what's at stake when justices are at the mercy of partisan passions and money in politics.
