    Need To Know [#266H] Correspondent Stacey Tisdale travels to Memphis to examine if the city's experimental "Family Rewards" program is helping combat poverty. The program pays low-income students and their parents for everything from good attendance and good grades to regular visits to doctors and dentists.

  • 7:00 am
    Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades Travel with filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus along the Kissimmee River and surrounding regions. Meet the "Keepers of the Land" and experience a "sense of place" in the vast open spaces in the cattle country of Florida's private and public lands. Throughout the centuries, the Everglades have inspired strong emotion and debate among soldiers and poets, politicians and citizens. Its history is as broad and sprawling as the "River of Grass" itself. Although many stories have been told about the Everglades - from drainage to restoration - few have been told about where it all begins: the Kissimmee River Basin. Restoration and protection of the natural values of this vast, watery landscape may well hold the key to restoration of the Greater Everglades ecosystem. The Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades invites you to take a trip up the Kissimmee Valley back through time to discover the well-reasoned, yet unforeseen consequences of a flood control project that turned the 103-mile long meandering river full of life, into a 52-mile long, multi-million dollar over-engineered channel that drained the surrounding wetlands, caused the disappearance of large flocks of wading birds, and a significant decline of an abundant freshwater fishery. "Kissimmee Basin area ... that's one of the areas of Florida that you can still go to and, if you look for it, it's there. You can see Florida just like it was seventy-five, a hundred, or more years ago." Patrick Smith, Author, A Land Remembered. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG

    Five Rivers Five Voices Across a vast landscape, rivers cut to the very heart of life in the American West. Some are wild, some harnessed by man.

In his latest film, Five Rivers Five Voices, John Howe tells the story of five great American rivers and the evocative voices that define them. duration 56:40   STEREO TVG
