Nature - Revealing the Leopard (8 pm)

Leopards are the ultimate cats. They are the most feline, the most intelligent, the most dangerous and, until recently, one of the least understood. They hunt from South Africa to Siberia, from Arabia to Sri Lanka, and are the most widespread predator of their size on land. A leopard is a cat that walks by itself, unseen and secretive. Leopards are the beautiful killers that live in the shadows. This film will accumulate the evidence and put together a psychological profile of this extraordinarily cunning cat.

Luckily for them, sometimes miracles do happen. Amazing prosthetics made possible by the latest engineering and technology are able to provide just what they need, and scientists are finding that innovations created in the process are benefiting both animals and humans.

A Royal Must See on WLRN-TV ... Queen Victoria's Empire

Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria's Empire (8:00 pm)

The Moral Crusade / The Scramble for Africa

At the time of Queen Victoria's birth in 1819, England was an agrarian society. Within a few short decades, this small island nation would be transformed into an industrial superpower, with an empire spanning the globe. QUEEN VICTORIA'S EMPIRE is both the story of this remarkable time, and an engaging portrait of a queen who ruled over a fifth of the world's population.

By 1861 Britain is the world's most powerful nation but the death of Prince Albert weakens Victoria and many of his political ideas fade from importance. Then, the Suez Canal is threatened by a holy war in the Sudan, and General Charles Gordon becomes an "imperial martyr," after he's killed by the rebels.
