    Cruz Reynoso: Sowing The Seeds of Justice This program paints a portrait of a man touched by injustice as a child who dedicated his life to fighting discrimination and inequality as a lawyer, judge and teacher.

  • 3:30 am
    Tavis Smiley [#3009] Tavis talks with award-winning playwright and actress Danai Gurira.

  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#4017H] Megastorm Aftermath One year after Hurricane Sandy's deadly strike, Nova follows up on its 2012 film "Inside the Megastorm" with a fresh investigation of the critical questions raised by this historic storm: Was Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to a changing climate? What can we do to prepare ourselves for the next Sandy and what progress has been made toward making our urban infrastructure more resilient? Much of Sandy's wrecking power was due to an extreme storm surge that left large swaths of New York and New Jersey underwater. And with sea levels on the rise, flooding will only become more frequent. What is the role of global warming in driving these rising seas and what will it take to make cities like New York more resilient? Nova travels around the world to see how other low-lying urban areas are combining extraordinary engineering with natural landscape restoration and a smarter, more flexible power grid to prepare for an uncertain future. At the same time, Nova meets the climate scientists who are racing to understand how a warming world will affect extreme - but unpredictable - weather phenomena like hurricanes and tornadoes. To many, Sandy was a wake-up call: one year later, are we still listening? And how will we answer? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#1201] The Man Who Saved The World This program follows the drama and debate that surrounded the most critical point in the Cold War, and perhaps human history. While politicians desperately sought a solution to the stand-off, nobody was aware what was happening beneath the waves but the men on the B-59. The crew could only watch as their superiors entered a battle of wills that would determine the fate of humanity. The story of what happened that fateful day remained hidden for decades, only emerging in Russia in recent years. Now these events will be known to the world. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Life On Fire [#102H] Volcano Doctors Whether the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Colombia, Chile, Italy or Iceland, each of these countries is home to active volcanoes that are a threat to the populations settled at their feet. Every day, lava, ash, gas, bombs and avalanches are likely to slide down the gaping mouths of the rock giants. To avoid disasters, volcanologists are asked to anticipate and warn. They are asked to be prophets and to know how to analyze the volcanoes' slightest tremors. Around the world, these volcano doctors use their tools and knowledge to try to protect those who live beneath the Earth's fire. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG
