    Life on the Line [#202] Last Chance For many, the difference between life and death depends on the country they were born in. Like 14-year-old Holman and 8-year-old Eva, who were both born with heart disease in Nicaragua. In their country, even if children survive the surgery, they run a high risk of dying from infection in the intensive care unit afterward.

    Nova [#4221] Making North America: Life In this episode we unpack the mysteries of how life evolved in North America. From massive volcanic eruptions, that killed three quarters of all species, to the appearance of giant inland seas populated by huge marine dinosaurs, the geology and life of North America have always gone hand in hand. We also reveal the part that geology played in the arrival of humans on the continent, as the appearance of the Panamanian land bridge altered ocean currents, helping bring about the last ice age. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Great Yellowstone Thaw [#102H] Our cameras continue to follow the wildlife dramas in Yellowstone, and Spring brings many new challenges. While the brutal cold temperatures and deep snow of winter have gone, the weather is still erratic and there's the impending danger of the Thaw. When temperatures are high enough to melt the snowpack, millions of tonnes of water will cascade down the mountain, bulldozing everything in its path. Wildlife cameraman Jeff Hogan discovers a nest of Great Gray owls. There are three chicks, but one is a runt, significantly smaller than its siblings and at risk of starvation. And when the worst storms for years hit the Beartooth Mountains, Jeff wonders whether it can hang on. Down on the Snake River the family of beavers is busy making the most of the Spring vegetation. Infra red cameras give Jeff and host Kirk Johnson a secret view of life inside the lodge, as the beavers squabble over food. Kirk also dons a dry suit to head underwater to admire the engineering skills of these rodents. Massive boulders and branches are there to strengthen their dams, but will they be enough to withstand the Thaw. When the torrent of water begins to hit, Kirk joins a hydrologist to help measure the water flow in the rivers and work out how this year's weather has affected the Thaw. And bear expert Casey Anderson follows a mother grizzly and her cubs - and explains that the biggest dangers come not from other predators, but surprisingly from their own kind. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
