Perron is travelling to Ranpur with Ahmed Kasim to interview his father, now the leading Muslim politician. Also on the journey are Aunt Fenny, Sarah and Susan and Susan's little son Edward with his nursemaid.
    Suddenly the train stops on an empty plain. There are distant sounds of breaking glass, shouting and screaming. Someone pounds on the carriage door, and there are shouts for Ahmed Kasim. Ahmed jumps from the compartment and disappears. When they reach Premanagar station the full horror of the incident is revealed. Muslim men, women and children have been butchered in their carriages. Overwhelmed by a sense of guilt and futility, Sarah and Perron do what they can. She tells him 'Ahmed and I weren't in love, but we loved each other.' Perron returns to Mirat to break the news, before finally leaving India. Just before his plane takes off, Perron makes a sudden decision to seek out Hari Kumar. When he reaches the tenement in a crowded street, Hari is not at home. Perron can only leave his card, not knowing whether he has done good or ill. He leaves, and behind him he leaves the mystery of Hari Kumar and India's tangled history.

    Globe Trekker [#1610H] Tough Trains: Cuba's Sugar Railroads Cuba was one of the first countries in the world to build a railway, starting all the way back in 1837. At the time, Cuba was the world's largest sugar producer, and its early railways were designed not with passengers in mind, but to transport sugarcane to the mills and refined sugar to the ports. In this episode, host Ian Wright goes on an eye-opening and hair-raising train journey across the Caribbean island of Cuba. The communist country's railway network is dilapidated and very unreliable, but it ends up being a fantastically enjoyable trip. duration 57:54   STEREO TVPG

    The Favored Strawberry What could be sweeter than a freshly picked strawberry? Scarlett and sumptuous, and grown on a crown of green, this masterpiece among plants begs to be savored. Once a seasonal fruit, strawberries are desired and available year round, from sub tropical winter fields in the heart of central Florida, to sweeping ranches along the shores of Monterrey Bay, California. They're grown on the windy plains of Texas and in the dirt of old Carolina tobacco plantations-in the flint rock hillsides of Oklahoma and on "you-pick-em" farms in New Jersey, and lots of places in between. The Favored Strawberry was filmed in 8 states, including Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, New Jersey, North Carolina, Maryland and California. The story unfolds at farms, big and small, where strawberries are picked by hand, by hard working immigrants chasing the American dream. duration 56:03   STEREO TVG

    Ready Jet Go! [#128H] Beep and Boop's Game/Constellation Prize "Beep and Boop's Game" - The kids help Dr. Rafferty and Bergs get Mars Rover BOOP over a ravine on the red planet by simulating actions in the DSA "Mars Yard" using BEEP (Boop's sister)! Trial and error leads to success. Along the way, the kids learn just how scientists communicate with far away rovers - through satellites above Mars. The kids then solve a new mystery set up by Bergs, figuring out that Beep and Boop are communicating about... a game of Mars/Mars Yard tic-tac-toe they're playing! Curriculum: A good amount of communication between Mars and Earth goes through satellites. Rovers send images, along with instrument and status data, back to Earth. Extrapolating from the data, the scientists send commands to the rover, which can take 4-24 minutes to be received due to the distance. Rovers are often on their own, carrying out commands and sending image data to overhead satellites. The rover's commanders may tell it to move toward a new rock, grind a rock, analyze a rock, take photos, or gather other data with other instruments. "Constellation Prize" - When Mindy thinks she's found her own star, the other kids explain how stars are labeled and identified by constellations. Mindy eventually learns that she hasn't found a new star, but that she CAN create her own version of a constellation by connecting patterns in the sky. Curriculum: A constellation is a group of stars that make an imaginary shape in the night sky. In different parts of the world, people have made up different shapes out of the same groups of bright stars, like a game of connect-the-dots. In the past, constellations were useful for navigating at night and for keeping track of the seasons. They are now useful for identifying parts of the sky astronomers are studying. Because all the stars are at different distances, the constellations would look totally different to inhabitants of another planet orbiting another star. duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
