    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2406H] November 9, 2012 ELECTION ROUNDUP
    * What does President Obama's win say about the changing electorate, with an estimated 70% of the Latino vote helping to deliver key swing states? Does this election signal a tipping point in the influence of voters of color?
    * It was a win-win for California Democrats this week, securing a supermajority in both houses of the legislature. Voters approved Proposition 30, Gov. Brown's tax measure, which promises to bring in billions in funding for schools.
    * The effort to curb the use of paycheck deductions for political organizing failed as Proposition 32 was voted down. Proposition 34, a voter's initiative to abolish the death penalty, also failed. The regulation of food remains status quo, as both a statewide measure to require labeling of genetically modified foods and a soda tax in the city of Richmond were rejected by voters.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News; Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle; and Lisa Vorderbrueggen, Bay Area News Group.
    TRIBUTE TO MAYA ANGELOU - In Belva Davis' final broadcast as host of This Week in Northern California, she looks at the importance of friendship in a special segment honoring author and performer Maya Angelou.

    Nature [#3003H] Animal Odd Couples A tiger cub with no mother in sight. A baby hippo. An abandoned meerkat pup. Without nurturing, these infants face certain death. Enter stories of the most unlikely cross-species relationships imaginable: a chimp bottle-feeding a tiger cub; a giant tortoise snuggling a baby hippo; a black crow parenting a meerkat. Aberrations of nature? Instincts gone awry? Does this kind of bonding form only when animals are removed from their natural environments? Or are they evidence of a broad array of emotions among animals? This film will look at these remarkable relationships firsthand, and through caregivers, biologists and animal behaviorists, explore what they suggest about the nature of animal emotions. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3914H] Mystery of Easter Island A remote, bleak speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific, Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, has mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. How and why did the ancient islanders build and move nearly 900 giant statues or moai, weighing up to 86 tons? And how did they transform a presumed paradise into a treeless wasteland, bringing ruin upon their island and themselves? Nova explores controversial recent claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the islanders, who have been accused of everything from ecocide to cannibalism. Among the radical new theories is that the islanders used ropes to "walk" the statues upright, like moving a fridge. With the help of an accurate 15-ton replica statue, a Nova team sets out to test this high-risk, seemingly unlikely theory. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG

    Nova scienceNOW [#605] What Are Animals Thinking? Have you ever wondered what's going on inside an Animal's head? How do they see the world -- and us? Is your dog really feeling guilty when it gives you that famous "guilty look?" Do pigeon brains possess "superpowers" that allow them to find their way home across hundreds of unfamiliar miles? David Pogue meets -- and competes -- with a menagerie of smart critters that challenge preconceived notions about what makes "us" different from "them" expanding our understanding of how animals really think. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5219H] * In his re-election victory speech President Barack Obama pledged "the best is yet to come." But first the president has to find a way to get a divided Congress to reach an agreement to prevent a fiscal crisis or risk pushing the country into recession.
    * Most analysts believe the Obama campaign's high-tech, micro-targeting of key voter demographics played a big role in the president's decisive win. Over the past three years the Obama campaign invested millions in voter ID and field organizing and in the end it paid off. So will this be the strategy other presidential campaigns will use in the future?
    * Mitt Romney's defeat has plunged the GOP into an intense period of self-examination and debate over the need to broaden the conservative coalition. Can the current Republican Party leadership come up with a message that will appeal to an increasingly diverse American electorate?
    Joining Gwen Ifill with analysis of the 2012 election results including some changes in Congress will be: Dan Balz of The Washington Post, John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, Beth Reinhard of National Journal, and Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times.

    Custer's Last Stand: American Experience On June 26, 1876, near the Little Bighorn River in Montana Territory, General George Armstrong Custer ordered his soldiers to drive back a large army of Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. The battle pitted two larger-than-life antagonists against one another: Sitting Bull, the charismatic and politically savvy leader of the Plains Indians, and George Armstrong Custer, one of the Union's greatest cavalry officers and a man with a reputation for often reckless courage. By days end, Custer and nearly a third of his army were dead. This biography of one of the most charismatic and contradictory American leaders of the 19th century takes viewers on a journey from Custer's memorable, wild charge at Gettysburg that turned the tide of that battle, to his lonely, untimely death on the windswept plains of the West. Along the way, viewers learn how, time and time again, the supremely ambitious son of a blacksmith ricocheted from triumph to disaster, from battlefield heroism to impetuous escapade. In the end, Custer's reputation was saved by the wife he adored, who almost single-handedly turned the Battle of the Little Bighorn into one of the most iconic events in American history and mythologized Custer's role. duration 1:55:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)
