    Sousa on the Rez: Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum Native American music may not conjure images of tubas, trumpets and John Phillip Sousa marches. Yet this vibrant musical tradition has been a part of Native American culture for more than 100 years. This program traces the origins of the 4 remaining multi-generational, community-based tribal bands: the Iroquois Indian Band from upstate New York, the Fort Mojave Tribal Band from Needles, Calif., the Zuni Pueblo Band from northwestern New Mexico and the Navajo Nation Band from Arizona. Combining profiles of contemporary bands with fresh historical research, it offers an unexpected and engaging picture of this little-known aspect of the Native music scene. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 2:30 am
    Erma Bombeck: Legacy of Laughter This program examines the extraordinary life and career of the beloved American humorist (1927-1996), whose honest tales of domestic life gave voice to millions of homemakers. Archival photographs, video clips and personal memorabilia trace Bombeck's life, from her childhood during the Great Depression to her work as a women's rights activist. The program is interspersed with uplifting and humorous interviews with Erma's family, friends and colleagues, including a touching on-camera introduction and narration by her neighbor and friend, former talk-show host Phil Donahue. It also features readings from some of Bombeck's best columns, and documents her continuing impact on readers, parents and writers today. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#4007H] Ancient Computer An unpromising lump of metal found in a 2000-year-old shipwreck turns out to be an extraordinary treasure: the world's first computer.

    Eat, Fast and Live Longer with Michael Mosley Michael Mosley has set himself a truly ambitious goal: he wants to live longer, stay younger and lose weight. But he wants to make as few changes to his life as possible along the way. And he thinks he's found the answer - the ancient idea of fasting. Could the powerful new science behind this idea lead to a longer, healthier life? Mosley thinks he's found a way of fasting that still allows him to enjoy his food. It sounds too good to be true. So he decides to take a road trip across the US to investigate how a little hunger can make you younger - and of course - to try out some of this new science for himself. duration 56:26   SRND51 TVPG
