Mr. Romney canceled events at the height of the disaster, and then returned to the campaign trail muting his political attacks on the president. Now with just days until the general election and in a race so tight every vote counts, how are the candidates adjusting their political playbooks to insure a win? Joining Gwen Ifill with analysis: Amy Walter of ABC News, John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times, John Harris of Poltico, and Jackie Calmes of The New York Times. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    Need To Know [#260H] For months now, Americans have been bombarded with more political advertising than ever as the candidates try to convince voters that they understand and know what's best for the people who live and work in "Main Street" America.
    This week, John Larson reports from Dubuque, Iowa - a town in a swing state worth six electoral votes in the road to the White House. Why Dubuque? It's not your average "Main Street" town. Dubuque's been called "Little Rome" because it boasts such a strong Catholic population, that the town is considered a barometer for the Catholic vote nationwide.

    This American Land [#213] Future Conservation Leaders, Natural Resources Revival, Fight for Frogs, Amazing Monarch Journey Future Conservation Leaders: Santa Cruz Island, off the coast of California, is home to bald eagles, scrub jays, and the most adorable foxes you may ever see! This summer, the island is also home to high school students from the Los Angeles area, working side by side with scientists. Co-host Caroline Raville spent some time with these young people to learn about LEAF, Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future. This Nature Conservancy program not only gives high school students a chance to enjoy nature, but provides a spark for many of them to pursue careers in science and conservation.
    Natural Resources Revival: A county in eastern Oregon has transformed from being dependent on timber, to being a pioneer in using its natural resources. Lake County is known as the "Saudi Arabia" of geothermal power. Its schools and hospitals are already taking advantage of sustainable energy sources including solar and wind power as well. Folks who used to be at odds, from the lumber industry and conservation groups, have put aside their differences to come up with sustainable answers for the future.
    A Fight for Frogs: A third of the world's amphibians face extinction, with more than 400 animals listed as "critically endangered." Habitat loss is one major threat, and that's the challenge for the gopher frog. Their population is now at an alarming low. These amphibians need both sandy, forested areas, and wetlands in order to breed. But development is making it tougher and tougher for them to survive. Sharon Collins of Georgia Public Broadcasting shows us how scientists are working to save these animals.
    Amazing Monarch Journey: Monarch butterflies, up to two billion of them, have to fly hundreds of miles to get to their wintering site in Mexico. So even a tiny impact on their migration ability could mean the difference between survival and death. Ecologist Sonia Altizer studies how long distance migration in flying animals may also affect the spread and evolution of infectious disease. These beautiful insects face many threats. Habitat destruction is also taking a hit on them. But a look at their winter home is one of the most stunningly beautiful sights in nature!

    Blackfeet Encounter Uncovers the rich history and culture of the Blackfeet people of Montana, tracing the consequences of the expedition's arrival and investigates the struggles and triumphs of the Blackfeet today. In July 1806, Meriwether Lewis and another member of the Corps of Discovery killed two Blackfeet warriors and marked the only deadly clash between American Indians and the otherwise peaceful Lewis and Clark Expedition. This documentary skillfully pieces together this confrontation through accounts by tribal elders, Lewis' journal and interviews with historians reflecting both sides of the story. It also depicts the tragedies and challenges endured by the Blackfeet people during the 19th and 20th centuries, including intertribal fighting, massacres, starvation, unemployment, poverty and racism. duration 56:47   STEREO TVG

    History Detectives [#301Z] The Spirit of St. Louis/Gary Powers' "Suicide Pin"/Image of Apache Warrior Geronimo * The Spirit of St. Louis - Two brothers from Parsippany, New Jersey, grew up listening to their uncle's claim that he built the engine for the Spirit of St. Louis - the plane made famous by Charles Lindbergh's historic nonstop flight across the Atlantic. A letter addressed to the uncle from the Wright Aeronautical Corporation in 1927 thanks him for his "enthusiasm and outstanding cooperation" following "Captain Lindbergh's recent achievement," but makes no direct mention of his role in the event. The family legend leads HD to uncover the forgotten history of Lucky Lindy's legendary flight.
    * Gary Powers' "Suicide Pin" - A toolmaker and artist in Kansas City, Missouri, found two peculiar pins, wrapped in a newspaper dated 1960, that had been manipulated to contain liquid. Could these pins be the prototypes of a poison- filled pin that U2 pilot Gary Powers was carrying when his spy-plane was shot down over the Soviet Union? HD takes a closer look at Cold War intrigue and the device that may have fueled the ultimate showdown.
    * Image of Apache Warrior Geronimo - A New Mexico woman's great-great- grandfather was lieutenant governor of the New Mexico territory in he 1870s. Her only keepsake from that time is a photograph of an Indian warrior on horseback. On the back of the photo are the words, Geronimo saluting a crowd of 100,000 people and surrounded by U.S. "soldier at Ranch 101." HD investigates the connection between the lieutenant governor, Ranch 101 and the legendary Apache warrior.

    Nova [#3704H] Ghosts of Machu Picchu Perched atop a mountain crest, mysteriously abandoned 400 years ago, Machu Picchu is the most famous archeological ruin in the Western hemisphere and an iconic symbol of the power and engineering prowess of the Inca. In the years since Machu Picchu was discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911, there have been countless theories about this "Lost City of the Incas," yet it remains an enigma. Why did the Incas build it on such an inaccessible site, clinging to the steep face of a mountain? Who lived among its stone buildings, farmed its emerald green terraces and drank from its sophisticated aqueduct system? NOVA joins a new generation of archeologists as they probe areas of Machu Picchu that haven't been touched since the time of the Incas and unearth burial grounds of the people who built the sacred site. duration 54:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)
