    Nova [#3914H] Mystery of Easter Island A remote, bleak speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific, Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, has mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. How and why did the ancient islanders build and move nearly 900 giant statues or moai, weighing up to 86 tons? And how did they transform a presumed paradise into a treeless wasteland, bringing ruin upon their island and themselves? Nova explores controversial recent claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the islanders, who have been accused of everything from ecocide to cannibalism. Among the radical new theories is that the islanders used ropes to "walk" the statues upright, like moving a fridge. With the help of an accurate 15-ton replica statue, a Nova team sets out to test this high-risk, seemingly unlikely theory. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Beyond The Mirage: The Future of Water in the West A prolonged drought in the West has put increased water pressure on the Colorado River and has fostered a unique blend of competition and collaboration among Western states. The search for solutions, some homegrown and some found abroad, will illuminate the path forward for the entire Colorado Basin and quite possibly the entire nation.
    This program explores the West's water crisis in detail, including how Americans arrived at this situation. It also examines emerging water conservation technologies and how they might offer solutions to this global crisis.
    Through interviews with noted public policy and environmental experts, including Robert Glennon, Regents Professor & Udall Professor, Law and Public Policy; Gregg Garfin, National Climate Assessment Contributing Author, Associate Professor of Climate, Natural Resources and Policy, University of Arizona; and Patricia Mulroy, Senior Fellow, William S. Boyd School of Law, UNLV, Climate Adaptation and Environmental Policy, Brookings Institute, the documentary puts viewers at the center of this issue and prompts a candid discussion about water resources and the need for viable, sustainable solutions.
