Why do some memories slip away, never to return, while others leave a permanent mark? Alan Alda meets scientists who are trying to unravel the mysteries of memory -- where memories come from, how they're remembered and what people can do to hold on to them

Beyond science? by David Moore Huntley( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is science fact and what is science fiction? Beyond Science, a part of the PBS Scientific American Frontiers series, explores the topics that go beyond the realm of science: the phenomenon that are nearly impossible to examine in a rigorous scientific way. 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

Saving the ocean( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two thirds of the globe is ocean. And while most people are just starting to hear about problems with overfishing, pollution, coral reef troubles, and the like, marine biologists, fisheries scientists, and conservationists worldwide are already hard at work inventing, devising, and implementing solutions. By focusing on those solutions, we'll help our viewers understand both what the problems are and the vision forward. In Shark reef, Carl visits a marine reserve where sharks are thriving. The sacred island is the story of Pemba, part of Zanzibar, once threatened by development but now being managed by and for the locals
Coming into America( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who were the first Americans? Did they get here by land or sea? Did a single group populate the continent, or did many? Experts used to agree that the first Americans walked across the Bering land bridge from Asia about 12,000 years ago, eventually colonizing all of North and South America. But exciting recent finds at sites on both continents have triggered new theories. Alan Alda tries to find out who's saying what, and why."--Container

"The Uncivilized Engine of War" traces the world's first submarine attack on the Union warship Housatonic, in February 1864. In 1995, after a lengthy search, shipwreck hunter Clive Cussler's team located the Confederate sub Hunley, now in dry dock in South Carolina
Alien Invasion( Visual )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometime in the 1940s a brown tree snake hitched a ride aboard a U.S. Air Force plane in New Guinea traveling across the Pacific to the island of Guam. As a result, Guam lost all its native bird life. More recently, an African fungus crossed the Atlantic to cause a damaging disease in Caribbean coral, and the European gypsy moth has been steadily transforming America's forests. However, these occurrences are far from unique and are in fact becoming more common with each passing year. In Alien Invasion, a part of the PBS Scientific American Frontier series, host Alan Alda examines how globalization of trade and travel has brought increased threats from alien species: plants, animals, insects, and diseases that wreak havoc in defenseless regions

It's no accident that the ocean inhabitants we humans like to eat are the ones with the most uncertain futures. We follow efforts by biologists to figure out what's going on with salmon, once abundant on both East and West coasts of North America and now in catastrophic decline; and with the ocean-ranging giant bluefin tuna, which scientists have recently succeeded in tracking on its epic journeys between Europe and America
