    Around The Corner with John McGivern [#103] Watertown Watertown has everything you could ask for in an episode, and John asked for a lot.

He asked Kenn Fox of Paramount Guitars to let him play a very expensive guitar, and he asked his TV crew not to save his life if he were to fall into the manure pit at Rosy Lane Holsteins.

    This American Land [#703] Forest Homes for Bats, Defenses Against Flooding, Prescribed Fires Private landowners in Pennsylvania work with government support to provide critical forest habitat for threatened populations of bats.

Managing forest plantations in Florida, landowners use prescribed fires to reintroduce a natural process that results in healthier ecosystems for wildlife as well as better forest and ranching operations. Researchers are studying ways to make commercial forests more productive and sustainable, including using slow-release fertilizers with less impact on the environment. duration 29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#601] Doin' It in the Park: Pick Up Basketball-Nyc An exploration of the history, culture, and social impact of New York's summer b-ball scene, widely recognized as the worldwide "Mecca" of the sport. In New York City, pick-up basketball is not just a sport. It is a way of life. There are 700+ outdoor courts, and an estimated 500,000 players, the most loyal of which approach the game as a religion, and the playground as their church. Co-directors Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau visited 180 courts throughout NYC's five boroughs to create their debut documentary. They traveled to a majority of the locations by bicycle, carrying camera equipment and a ball in their backpacks. The film's title refers as much to the subject matter as it does to the method of filmmaking, providing an unprecedented perspective on urban America's most popular, and accessible, free recreation. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
