Coming into America( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At one time, experts agreed that the first Americans walked across the Bering land bridge from Asia approximately 12,000 years ago, eventually colonizing all of North and South America. But exciting recent finds on both continents have triggered entirely new theories. In Coming to America, a part of the PBS Scientific American Frontiers series, host Alan Alda heads back to the past by exploring ancient finds alongside archeologists, like the Arlington Springs Woman--the oldest securely dated human remains--and the Clovis People, who were believed to have lived more than 13,000 years ago. The program explores newly surfaced questions, like were the first Americans actually from Europe? And, by what means did they arrive? There is no lack of intrigue, as the program presents a provoking selection of theories on who believes what ... and why

What is science fact and what is science fiction?

A provocative behind-the-scenes look at scientific exploration, this program presents top scientists expressing their thoughts on the importance of a scientific method of research as well as offering evidence both for and against the claims made for "fringe" topics such as therapeutic touch, dowsing, graphology, palm reading, UFOs, and the possibility of building free energy machines

Takes a fictitious crime and builds from it a gripping courtroom drama. The trial takes us into the brains of the major participants-defendant, witnesses, jurors, judge-while Alan Alda visits the laboratories of some dozen neuroscientists exploring how brains work when they become entangled with the law. The research raises the controversial question: How does our ability to peer into people's minds and decode their thoughts and feelings affect trials like the one we are watching in the future?

Coming into America( Visual )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program highlights current research which is challenging the traditional theory of how people first came to North America in prehistoric times. It has been assumed that the Clovis, the oldest people to populate the continent, moved south from Alaska as Canadian ice sheets were breaking up. New findings by archealogists indicate people may have come from more than one place following a number of routes including a Pacific coastal route, a Beringian land route and an Atlantic ice route. Clovis culture and technology is discussed. New research findings by Dennis Stanford, Jon Erlandson, Michael Collins, Al Goodyear, Steve Holen and David Yesner are presented
