Summary:
Car of the Future
What will the car of the future be like? Will it run on hydrogen, batteries, ethanol, or some as-yet undiscovered technology? Find out as NOVA and the much-loved "Car Talk" brothers, Tom and Ray Magliozzi, from public radio, take a light-hearted but knowledgeable look at the serious issue of what's to come for our transportation.

Solar Energy: Saved by the Sun
Can solar power help save the Earth from the ravages of global warming? In the face of steeply rising oil prices and political turmoil in the Middle East, there's new urgency and enthusiasm for finding ways to make solar power more efficient and affordable. NOVA presents a provocative mix of scientist, economists, and ordinary citizens who are all pushing the envelope of solar power's untapped potential.

Global Warming: What's Up With the Weather?
Deadly flooding in Africa. Catastrophic hurricanes in the U.S. Record high temperatures worldwide. Are these natural, temporary glitches in our global climate, or is the devastation the result of global warming? The weather is different now—but why? Find out when NOVA and FRONTLINE join forces to determine what's up with the weather.

Rachel Carson's Silent Spring
Rachel Carson's great love of the natural world drove her to write an exposé of the chemical industry and its unregulated use of DDT. Though she was viciously attacked, called "an ignorant and hysterical woman," Silent Spring became an instant bestseller, was translated into 22 languages and changed the way we think about the natural world.

Special DVD features include: printable materials for educators for Solar Energy: Saved by the Sun and Global Warming: What's Up With the Weather?; access to program Web sites; scene selection; and described video for the visually impaired on Car of the Future and Solar Energy: Saved by the Sun.
