    POV [#2308] Salt In his search for "somewhere I could point my camera into pure space, " award-winning photographer Murray Fredericks began making annual solo camping trips to remote Lake Eyre and its salt flats in South Australia. These trips have yielded remarkable photos of a boundless, desolate yet beautiful environment where sky, water and land merge. Made in collaboration with documentary filmmaker Michael Angus, "Salt" is the film extension of Fredericks' work at Lake Eyre, interweaving his photos and video diary with time-lapse sequences to offer viewers the liberating and disorienting experience of being thrown into an infinite dimension of mind and spirit.
    "Salt" will be accompanied by a selection of shorts: Ellen Frick's "A Healing Art" delves into the world of artificial eye makers as they rekindle hope for victims of tragedy; and animated shorts from the Peabody Award-winning oral-history project StoryCorps - these shorts capture the stories of everyday Americans in their own voices.

    Rescue in the Philippines: Refuge from the Holocaust This documentary recounts a fascinating, yet seldom-told, chapter in World War II history. It chronicles a real-life Casablanca, in which a high-profile group of poker buddies - including Colonel Dwight Eisenhower - hatched an intricate international plan of rescue and re-settlement, saving 1300 Jews from certain death in Nazi concentration camps. The program tells this gripping story through interviews with historians, friends and relatives of the key participants, and first-person accounts from refugees who detail their harrowing escape from Europe and immigration to the Philippines. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Nature [#3102H] Love in the Animal Kingdom Animals dance, sing, flirt and compete with everything they've got to find and secure a mate. For many, the all-important bonds they share as a couple are what enable the next generation to survive. But can we call these bonds love?
