  • 2:00 am
    Summer of Birds This documentary details a relatively unknown chapter in the life of renowned naturalist painter, ornithologist and literary figure John James Audubon. Based on the acclaimed book, A Summer of Birds: John James Audubon at Oakley House by award-winning writer Danny Heitman, it chronicles the formative summer Audubon spent in Louisiana in 1821, in the lush surroundings of Oakley Plantation in West Feliciana Parish. There, Audubon began or completed nearly half of the 435 pictures in his famous "Birds of America" collection. Narrated by Emmy-winning actress Sela Ward, the film explores the profound influence of Louisiana's natural environment and birdlife on Audubon's development as an artist and writer, and conversely, Audubon's undeniable impact on the region and its cultural identity.
    Today, the Audubon mystique is deeply ingrained in Louisiana culture, where annual community rituals keep it alive. Each year, visitors flock to Oakley Plantation, the Audubon Pilgrimage and the Audubon Bird Fest, a three-day bird-watching expedition. This program tells this colorful story through Audubon's most iconic bird images; historical re-enactments; original journal entries; interviews with wildlife painters, scientists and conservationists working to preserve Audubon's legacy; and scenes of the region's wild and fragile landscapes and its rare and threatened bird species. Cameras accompany modern-day birding enthusiasts and naturalists through Louisiana's bayous and woodsy pathways to experience their "paradise of birds" the same way Audubon did nearly 200 years ago.

Can the NATO alliance - forged during the Cold War - ensure global stability in the 21st Century? And should the U.S. continue to foot most of the bill? Next, on Great Decisions. duration 29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#4005] Building Pharaoh's Chariot Around 3,600 years ago, reliefs in Egyptian tombs and temples depicted pharaohs and warriors proudly riding into battle on horse-drawn chariots. Some historians claim that the chariot launched a technological and strategic revolution, and was the secret weapon behind Egypt's greatest era of conquest known as the New Kingdom. But was the Egyptian chariot really a revolutionary design? How decisive a role did it play in the bloody battles of the ancient world? In this film, a team of archaeologists, engineers, woodworkers and horse trainers join forces to build and test two highly accurate replicas of Egyptian royal chariots. They discover astonishingly advanced features, including spoked wheels, springs, shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and even a convex shaped rear mirror, leading one of them to compare the level of design to the engineering standards of 1930's-era Buicks! By driving our pair of replicas to their limits in the desert outside Cairo, NOVA's experts test the claim that the chariot marks a crucial turning point in ancient military history. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

  • 6:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#1205H] Ultimate Tut Ninety years ago in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, the greatest archaeological find in history was made: the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb and its golden treasures. It made Tutankhamen the most famous name in ancient Egyptian history. But the real story has become shrouded in myth -- with many mysteries around the tomb unsolved to this day. This two-hour special combines the latest evidence from a team of archaeologists, anatomists, geologists and Egyptologists to build the ultimate picture of Tutankhamen. Blending 3D graphics, stylized reconstruction and action-adventure forensic investigation, the programs take a 21st-century approach to ancient history, following new scientific research and presenting fresh insights into how Tutankhamen was buried, why his tomb was the only one to remain intact and the enduring enigma around how he died. duration 1:53:22   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
