    Nightly Business Report [#32140] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, the markets have been whipsawed.

    Tavis Smiley [#2926] Tavis talks with founder and president of the FealGood Foundation, John Feal.

  • 2:00 am
    Anyone and Everyone This documentary tells the stories of families from Utah to North Carolina and Wyoming to New York, all connected by a common thread - a gay child. By first-time filmmaker Susan Polis Schutz (also the parent of a gay son), it depicts families representing a wide range of religions, nationalities and political leanings. During the film, parents of homosexual teens and young adults eloquently recall their initial reactions to their child's coming-out and their sometimes difficult journeys to acceptance. Some showed unconditional support; others struggled with their child's sexual orientation, either fearing alienation from their extended family, their church or community or failing to understand the universal nature of homosexuality. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Nature [#2810] Outback Pelicans The Australian outback is the driest place on the driest inhabited continent on the planet. It is a place you might expect to see kangaroos but certainly not waterbirds. Yet once every 10 years, rains flood into dried-up river beds and head inland to create the largest lake in Australia, and 100,000 pelicans -- a third of all the pelicans in Australia -- arrive for the event. Leaving their homes on coasts and harbors, they come to feed on fish washed in on the floods and on billions of brine shrimp and other crustaceans which hatch and grow to adulthood in a few days in water twice as salty as the Dead Sea. The pelicans have come home to court and raise as many families as possible before the water and the food disappear once more. duration 54:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Nature [#3002H] Magic of the Snowy Owl This episode explores the world of the snowy owl, a bird recently made popular by Hedwig, Harry Potter's faithful companion. Turning fantasy into reality, "Magic of the Snowy Owl" takes an intimate look at how these majestic birds survive in one of the most isolated and inhospitable places on the planet. Noted wildlife filmmaker Fergus Beeley ("Jungle Eagle") takes viewers deep into the "snowy's" tundra home on the North Slope of Alaska to observe the daily struggles involved in raising a family of helpless chicks until they are able to fly. Viewers will discover that these strikingly beautiful Arctic owls - essentially eagles, falcons and owls rolled into one - have a magic of their own. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Nature [#2705] Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air Hummingbirds represent one of nature's most interesting paradoxes -- they are the tiniest of birds, yet they qualify as some of the toughest and most energetic creatures on the planet. New knowledge gained from scientists currently making great breakthroughs in hummingbird biology makes this a perfect time to focus on these shimmering, flashing jewels of the natural world. Stunningly beautiful high-definition, high speed footage of hummingbirds in the wild combined with high-tech presentations of their remarkable abilities help us to understand the world of hummingbirds as we never have before. duration 1:21:24   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
