    Lost Bird Project This captivating nature documentary charts sculptor Todd McGrain's efforts to memorialize five birds - the Great Auk, Carolina Parakeet, Labrador Duck, Passenger Pigeon and Heath Hen - driven to extinction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It follows McGrain and his brother-in-law Andy as they embark on a road trip in search of the last-known locations of the birds and seek permission to install McGrain's six-foot-tall bronze sculptures on those sites. Travelling from the tropical swamps of Florida to the rocky coasts of Newfoundland to the shores of Martha's Vineyard, the men spend more than two years scouting locations, talking to park rangers, speaking at town meetings and battling bureaucracy in their effort to gather support for the project. An elegy to the five birds, the program is a thoughtful and sometimes humorous look at the artist and his mission. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Secrets of the Dead [#901H] Michelangelo Revealed More than five centuries ago, Michelangelo Buonarroti was the darling of the Catholic Church. Throughout his masterful career, the Papacy commissioned him to create many of its most important pieces, including the frescos of the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica of St. Peter. He spent his life glorifying the Church through his art. But five centuries later, new finds are revealing a darker side to the master artisan. While restoring Michelangelo's famous statue of Moses, art historian Antonio Forcellino noticed some puzzling imperfections, including an asymmetrical beard, knees of different sizes and a head that sat strangely on the shoulders. The finds started Forcellino on an investigation that eventually exposed evidence of Michelangelo's involvement with a clandestine fellowship trying reform the Catholic Church from within. The group's radical ideas were so threatening to the Church orthodoxy, they were considered heretical and punishable by death. Michelangelo's involvement put him at dangerous odds with powerful officials who held his livelihood -- and life -- in their hands. This program paints a new picture of brave religious expression, personal vendettas, careful cover-ups and a most gifted artist desperately trying to reconcile his loyalty to the Church with his own personal belief about the road to salvation. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
