“The Rhino Who Joined The Family”

Rescued from flooding caused by the damming of the Zambezi River, Rupert, an orphaned black rhinoceros, was brought up in the suburban family home of wildlife vet Dr. John Condy. Rupert captured the hearts of the vet’s four young children before his eventual release into the wild. Fifty years later, the children are searching for clues to their childhood friend’s fate.

Pictured: Richard Smith at Uluru NOVA
“Australia's First 4 Billion Years: Monsters”

Host Richard Smith comes face-to-face with the previously unknown reptilian rulers of prehistoric Australia. NOVA resurrects the giants that stalked the land and discovers that some of them were among the largest ever to have walked the Earth. Others were some of the most dangerous. In the dry desert heart, scientists unearth an ancient inland ocean, full of sea monsters. But reptiles didn’t have the world all to themselves. Mammals like the enigmatic platypus lived alongside them, ready for their day in the sun. And 65 million years ago, that day arrived.

Pictured: Mark and Joy in the Outback Sex in the Wild
“Kangaroos”

In Australia, Joy and Mark uncover the reproductive secrets of some of the strangest mammals on Earth — the pouch-wearing marsupials. Thanks to their bizarre way of reproducing, kangaroos thrive in one of the most unpredictable, drought-prone environments on Earth — the Australian Outback. In Queensland’s eucalyptus forests, he sees how tree-living marsupials — koalas — have mastered gravity-defying sex. At a kangaroo sanctuary, Joy witnesses a tiny newborn’s first steps as it crawls to the pouch, and in Adelaide, she learns how endangered rock wallabies are being saved using foster mothers. During a kangaroo dissection, she learns what makes marsupial reproductive anatomy unique.

Pictured: Henry Ford ca. 1915 Henry Ford: American Experience
This biography paints a fascinating portrait of a farm boy who rose from obscurity to become the most influential American innovator of the 20th century. Ford’s Model T automobile and his five-dollar-a-day wage ushered in the modern world, earning Ford reverence from millions of Americans. Yet many of the changes he wrought deeply troubled the carmaker. In frustration, he lashed out at enemies, real and imagined, blamed Jews for the country’s problems, bullied those who worked for him and exhibited great cruelty to his only son, often, it seemed, wishing to retreat to an idyllic fantasy of the past.

Pictured: conductor with orchestra All-Star Orchestra
“Politics and Art”

Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5. Music has sometimes reflected, and at other times challenged repressive ideologies. Shostakovich abandoned the premiere of his challenging 4th symphony for fear of reprisals from the Stalinist government. His triumphant 5th Symphony was next, and the authorities were pleased. To this day the 5th is Shostakovich's most popular symphony. What is its message? What does "political music" mean today?

“Arlington Italianate Project, Part 7”

Arborist Matt Foti does some selective tree pruning, while Richard revisits the benefits of using PEX instead of copper for the water supply lines. Norm tours an 1872 Stick Style home in the neighborhood, and Tom shows Kevin how to convert a former doorjamb into a cased opening. In the second half of the hour, Tom helps a homeowner fit a box spring mattress up a narrow staircase. Kevin and an electrician repair a light switch in Seattle. Richard shows many options for filtering drinking water.
