EARTH A New Wild | Panda | PBS Premieres Wednesdays, February 4-25, 2015 on PBS Join Dr. M. Sanjayan for EARTH A New Wild, a five-part series that takes a fresh look at humankind’s relationship to the planet’s wildest places and most fascinating species -- including pandas.


Monday, April 19 at 9pm on PBS. Witness the seeds of a revolution in EARTH DAYS, hailed as "spectacular" (Hollywood Reporter), "fascinating" (Bloomberg News) and "a beautifully composed tribute to visionary thinking and political ingenuity" (New York Times). Earth Days traces the development of the modern environmental movement from its post-war rumblings in the 1950s to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration and the subsequent firestorm of political action to reveal an engaging history of the revolutionary achievements-—and missed opportunities-—of groundbreaking eco-activism.

Glass Frog | Songs for Unusual Creatures | PBS Digital Studios

Q: What do the GLASS FROG and the GLASS ARMONICA have in common? A: They're both in this video! The glass frog is called so because it has see-through skin on its stomach! How crazy is that? You can see just about all of its inner organs, including its beating heart. The glass armonica on the other hand is one of the rarest and most exotic musical instruments, and it was invented by Benjamin Franklin! Check out my friend Cecilia Brauer play one. I think it'll work nicely with my visit to the "Frog Pod" at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments. And subscribe to the channel for new animals and songs every other week. (It's free!)
