Nature


PBS's signature (and multi-award-winning) natural-history series uses gifted wildlife documentarians and stunning photography to reveal what its first host, Donald Johanson, called `the magic and mystery of the fascinating natural world.' The series has garnered numerous prizes, including the Sierra Club Award; and both an Emmy and a Peabody in 1987 for `A Season in the Sun,' a memorable portrait of East Africa by Alan and Joan Root. Its first show was the lyrical `Flight of the Condor.'

Episode title: Natural Born Rebels: Hunger Wars
Episode description: A look at animals that steal, cheat and fight to get food, including kleptomaniac crabs, thieving macaques, con artist spiders, tricky tigers, and cannibalistic lizards.

NOVA Wonders


The documentary series explores a single scientific subject each episode, such as the secret language of animals, artificial intelligence technologies that could surpass the abilities of the human mind, and the mysteries of the universe.

Episode title: What Are Animals Saying?
Episode description: The series premiere examines animal communication. Some animals demonstrate they can learn human language-like Chaser the dog, who recognizes hundreds of words, and Kanzi the gorilla, who understands some English spoken in context. Included: researchers who are deciphering how animals share information critical to their survival-from a cacophony of ultrasonic bat squeaks to spider thumps and mice mating songs.
