Attention Science Wonks, Political Junkies, & Critter Lovers

That about covers my readership, doesn't it?

Philly's main PBS station, WHYY, has announced a trio of Katrina-related documentaries that sound good to me. Times and days may vary, depending on your local PBS station. From their e-mailed ad:

"Nature "Katrina's Animal Rescue"
Sunday, November 20 at 8 p.m.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, animal experts rushed to the frontlines of the disaster to stage emergency rescue missions for the tens of thousands of animals left behind. Nature recorded these amazing stories of courage and survival, taking viewers deep into the center of the hurricane catastrophe on small boats to search for surviving pets. The film captures the intensity of efforts to save not only dogs and cats (and reunite them with their families), but also penguins, dolphins and other zoo and aquarium animals, and imparts a sense of the triumphs and disappointments of this massive operation.

What Went Wrong?
Tuesday, November 22
WHYY presents two riveting new programs about the Hurricane Katrina disaster:

8 p.m.: NOVA "Storm That Drowned a City" analyzes the forces that made Katrina so deadly, and

9 p.m.: Frontline "The Storm" investigates the government's response before and after this national tragedy."

And if you're lucky enough to own a digital tuner, their HD station kicks ass.
