  • 1:00 am
    Nightly Business Report [#32160] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, from rising home prices to bidding wars - while that may sound like the perfect recipe for a housing bubble, NBR will tell you why that may not be the case. And, which businesses win and which lose as the worst heat wave of the summer grips the northeast. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
  • 1:30 am
    Tavis Smiley [#2946] Tavis talks with Brown University professor Tricia Rose. The internationally respected scholar and director of Brown University's Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America analyzes the racial implications in the US of trials like the Zimmerman case. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
  • 2:00 am
    Blackfeet Encounter Uncovers the rich history and culture of the Blackfeet people of Montana, tracing the consequences of the expedition's arrival and investigates the struggles and triumphs of the Blackfeet today. In July 1806, Meriwether Lewis and another member of the Corps of Discovery killed two Blackfeet warriors and marked the only deadly clash between American Indians and the otherwise peaceful Lewis and Clark Expedition. This documentary skillfully pieces together this confrontation through accounts by tribal elders, Lewis' journal and interviews with historians reflecting both sides of the story. It also depicts the tragedies and challenges endured by the Blackfeet people during the 19th and 20th centuries, including intertribal fighting, massacres, starvation, unemployment, poverty and racism. duration 56:47   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#2814H] Bears of the Last Frontier: The Road North Part 2 of 3: The Road North - This hour explores the world of black bears caught in the crossroads of urban development in Anchorage and the wilderness. This is a new normal for bears and for their human neighbors. Some bears are so comfortable living in urban surroundings that their primary habitat is a golf course. In residential areas, bears frequently raid garbage bins and birdfeeders for easy snacks. But these behaviors are less than ideal for bears and residents alike. Morgan heads north out of Anchorage to Denali National Park, where the mountains loom over treeless plains and bears get by on a diet of thousands of berries a day. The grizzlies share the enormous park with foxes, wolves, and moose - and with one intrepid bear biologist and his team. Morgan continues his journey north on a bone-shaking 610-mile motorcycle journey from Denali to Prudhoe Bay along the only Alaskan Highway to reach the Arctic. Prudhoe Bay, a once-pristine area at the edge of the Arctic Ocean, has been changed forever by the oil industry. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

  • 6:00 am
    Nature [#2815H] Bears of the Last Frontier: Arctic Wanderers Part 3 of 3: Arctic Wanderers - Chris Morgan travels to the far north of Alaska, the tiny North Slope town of Kaktovik. It's early November and winter is coming on. But each year, the polar bears struggle for extended periods on dwindling fat reserves, waiting for the opportunity to hunt on sea ice that takes longer to freeze. In early spring, Morgan joins local hunters in Barrow, the northernmost city in Alaska, as they go out on their own hunts, facing some of the same challenges as the bears. In late spring, Morgan travels to the North Slope of the Brooks Range, where countless thousands of caribou cover the ground for miles. The grizzlies are waiting for them, as they have for thousands of years. duration 56:16   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Nature [#2902] The Animal House Animals build homes for reasons very similar to our own, but they've been doing it for much longer. From a small depression in the sand to an elaborate, multi-chambered tunnel - animal structures can be simple or architectural marvels. In each case, the goal is the same - protection from predators and a nearby source of food. These structures, whether a nest, a burrow or a mound, are also the site of great dramas and extraordinary behaviors. From master builders like termites and beavers, to master decorators like the bowerbird, which places colorful flowers at the entrance to its nest, "The Animal House" will be a global look at the "homelife of wildlife." duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
