    Himalaya Connection Shot in Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Mongolia, Nepal and Pakistan, the film explores the dramatic and far-reaching effects of the Indian and Asian tectonic plates crashing below the Himalayas and their impact on the region's geology, climate and people. It also reveals how the Indian-Asian plate collision created notable geologic superlatives: Earth's highest mountain range-the Himalayas-and some of Earth's largest rivers, such as the Brahmaputra, Ganges, and Indus, which flow from the Himalayas and the Tibetan Plateau to sustain 45 percent of all the people in the world. Yet these rich benefits to humanity are coupled with great risks in the form of major earthquakes, frequent flooding, landslides, and erosion. THE HIMALAYA CONNECTION explores how the devastating Nepal earthquake of 2015 spurred intensified efforts by scientists to better understand earthquake processes and to successfully push for stronger defensive measures throughout the region. A sense of urgency in the scientists' research builds to the climax of the film, when a group of seismologists and geologists working in Bangladesh and northeastern India discover a gigantic earthquake fault, previously unknown, which is actively building up strain across a landscape that is home to 140 million people. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Standing On Sacred Ground [#103] Fire & Ice From Ethiopia to Peru, indigenous customs protect biodiversity on sacred lands under pressure from religious conflicts and climate change.
    In the Gamo Highlands of Ethiopia, scientists confirm the benefits of traditional stewardship even as elders witness the decline of spiritual practices that have long protected trees, meadows and mountains. Tensions with evangelical Christians over a sacred meadow erupt into a riot.
    In the Peruvian Andes, the Q'eros, on a pilgrimage to a revered glacier, are driven from their ritual site by intolerant Catholics. Q'eros potato farmers face a more ominous foe: global warming is melting glaciers, their water source. Andes farmers, scientists and visiting Ethiopians struggle to adapt indigenous agriculture to the changing climate.

    Shifting Sands: On the Path to Sustainability For more than a century, North America's giants in manufacturing (US Steel, Standard Oil and Bethlehem Steel) and preservationists battled over a 47-mile stretch of sandy shore along Lake Michigan that contains one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet-the Indiana Dunes region. While the factories provided jobs and contributed to the community's economic growth, they also wiped out a tremendous amount of rare habitat, and polluted the waterways. In SHIFTING SANDS: ON THE PATH TO SUSTAINABILITY, the hour-long documentary takes a look at the decades-long effort to create the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore amid the presence of heavy industry along Lake Michigan. It also highlights the collaborative effort to clean up and restore the region. The clash over the Indiana Dunes-considered to be the birthplace of ecological science in North America-would lead to the creation of public policy with worldwide impact, and it would give the United States one of its first urban National Parks. Today, that decades-old battle has transformed into a new model of cooperation, where industrialists and environmentalists, once bitter adversaries, are now working together to steer this community toward sustainability. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Lost Bird Project This captivating nature documentary charts sculptor Todd McGrain's efforts to memorialize five birds - the Great Auk, Carolina Parakeet, Labrador Duck, Passenger Pigeon and Heath Hen - driven to extinction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It follows McGrain and his brother-in-law Andy as they embark on a road trip in search of the last-known locations of the birds and seek permission to install McGrain's six-foot-tall bronze sculptures on those sites. Travelling from the tropical swamps of Florida to the rocky coasts of Newfoundland to the shores of Martha's Vineyard, the men spend more than two years scouting locations, talking to park rangers, speaking at town meetings and battling bureaucracy in their effort to gather support for the project. An elegy to the five birds, the program is a thoughtful and sometimes humorous look at the artist and his mission. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
