  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#4107H] Wild Predator Invasion Over the last few centuries we have shot, trapped and skinned the predators that formerly thrived at the top of the food chain in the wild. Wild bears, wolves and big cats are all in retreat, and a growing number of scientists are discovering that by eliminating predators, we have changed the environment. Removing predators from the wild has thrown ecosystems off-kilter, triggering domino effects that scientists are just beginning to understand. In "Wild Predator Invasion," NOVA follows scientists who are trying out a simple but controversial solution: returning apex predators --like wolves, bears, and panthers -- to their natural environments. Can these newly reintroduced predators restore the natural balance of their ecosystems without threatening the humans who live among them? duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG

Any survivors face a terrifying fate as slaves on Roman galleys or in their quarries. Escaping the bloody carnage is impossible... or is it? Could some of the once-mighty Carthaginians have got away? And even more incredibly -- could they have turned west on an epic journey across the vast Atlantic Ocean to new shores? Did they set foot in South America, long before Columbus ever walked the face of the Earth? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    Secrets of the Dead [#1206] Bones of the Buddha This show is a modern day Indiana Jones story: a tale of deception, treasure, intrepid adventurers and international realpolitik. Did a 19th-century British landowner really discover gold, jewels and the charred bones of the Lord Buddha in an underground chamber on his estate? When Colonial estate manager, Willie Peppe, set his workers digging at a mysterious hill in Northern India in 1898, he had no idea what they'd find. Just over 20 feet down, they made an amazing discovery: a huge stone coffer, containing five reliquary jars, over 1000 separate jewels, and some ash and bone. One of the jars had an inscription that appeared to say that these were the remains of the Buddha himself. This seemed to be the most extraordinary find in Indian archaeology. But doubt and scandal have hung over this amazing find for over 100 years. For some, the whole thing is an elaborate hoax. For others, it is no less than the final resting place of the leader of one of the world's great religions, who died nearly 2,500 years ago. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Tomorrow: Japan Beyond 3/11 [#231] Projects for Future Generations? A Year at the OECD Tohoku School The Canadian filmmaker Nicolina Lanni has been producing a documentary on debris from the March 2011disaster that has washed up on North American shores. The items testify to what happened and tell stories about their owners. Lanni sorted through some of this debris and tried to return items of likely emotional importance to their rightful owners. Her efforts spawned a movement across the western coast of North America to do the same. Some people even visited Japan to return items to their owners. This program focuses on the latest developments and considers the importance and significance of these efforts, looking at what was lost and what was saved. duration 28:12   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    Tomorrow: Japan Beyond 3/11 [#229] Teenagers in the Disaster Hit Communities Striving to be Citizens of the World The Paris-based OECD (Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development) launched the OECD Tohoku School project in the spring of 2012 with the co-operation of the Japanese Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry and educational institutions in Japan's devastated Tohoku region. The two-year project aims to mentor teenagers in the Tohoku region so that they might carve out international careers. Some 80 teenagers take part in the project. International business people and journalists mentor them in organization, creativity and international awareness with the goal to bring "Tohoku to the world." Planning and fund-raising are underway for an event in Paris in summer 2014. Twenty of the participating teenagers went to Paris in May 2013 to help organize the event and meet with local teenagers. This program will look at what the teenagers are learning in the Tohoku School project, how they are maturing and where they hope to go in the future. duration 28:12   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
