    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1308] Calls of the Wild Eavesdrop on creatures as diverse as elephants and spiders, warblers and bees, crickets and bats. What are they saying - and why? duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Nature [#2804] Wolverine: Chasing The Phantom Its name stirs images of the savage, the untameable. Legend paints it as a solitary, bloodthirsty killer that roams the icy heart of the frozen north, taking down prey as large as moose, crushing bones to powder with its powerful jaws. But there is another image of the wolverine that is just beginning to emerge, one that is far more complex than its reputation suggests. This film takes viewers into the secretive world of the largest and least known member of the weasel family to reveal who this dynamic little devil truly is. Hard-wired to endure en environment of scarcity, the wolverine is one of the most efficient and resourceful carnivores on Earth. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 8:00 am
    Nova [#3912H] Forensics on Trial There is a startling gap between the glamorous television world of "CSI" and the gritty reality of the forensic crime lab. With few established scientific standards, no central oversight and poor regulation of examiners, forensics in the US is in a state of crisis. Nova investigates how modern forensics, including the analysis of fingerprints, bite marks, ballistics, hair, and tool marks, can send innocent men and women to prison - and sometimes even to death row. Shockingly, of more than 250 inmates exonerated by DNA testing over the last decade, more than 50% of the wrongful convictions stemmed from invalid or improperly handled forensic science. With the help of vivid recreations of actual trials and cases, Nova investigated today's shaky state of crime science as well as cutting-edge solutions that could help investigators put the real criminals behind bars. duration 53:56   STEREO TV14
