I'm constantly amazed at how quickly time goes. We're now halfway through the month of March. March. Halfway through. Once March is finished we'll be one-quarter of the way through 2008. One-quarter. It's amazing. The world seems to go more and more quickly. I guess I can take a Quantum of Solace from the fact that it's been a good year so far.

Nature - “Deep Jungle 'The Beast Within'”. Wow. This is part three of a three-part miniseries - a miniseries, I tell you - that follows explorers and scientists as they examine life in the jungle. Part three deals with the how the jungle may or may not have affected humanity in the distant past (I'm betting that it did).
9:00PM – 10:30PM
Sarah Brightman: Symphony in Vienna. A repeat of the brand new Sarah Brightman concert. It was taped way back in January of this year in Vienna (if Indiana Jones has taught me anything, that's in Austria). She sings old stuff, she sings new stuff. She sings and sings and sings.
10:30PM – 12:30AM
André Rieu: In Wonderland. I would call this the sequel to Alice's visit, but that was the whole Looking Glass thing. Maybe it's now a trilogy. Fine, fine, it's not Rieu and his orchestra, choir, several soloists, and some really kicking music playing at a theme park in Holland.

Antiques Roadshow – "Tampa (Hour Three)". I wonder if the things that appear at the Roadshow in Tampa are imported by snowbirds from New York. Either that or they recall the moments back in the day when the Buccaneers were a good team.
9:00 – 10:30PM
American Experience – "Ansel Adams". What is there that can be said about Ansel Adams? Actually, a fairly decent amount. Adams' photography is truly outstanding. In this documentary Ric Burns attempts to explore "the meaning and legacy of Adams' life and work."
10:30 – 11:00PM
PBS Previews – "Carrier". PBS isn't going to show you Carrier, they're just going to show you a preview of it (it airs at the end of April and beginning of May). They're going to tantalize you. They're going to intrigue you. They're going to tell you about some of the people on the USS Nimitz.

Nova – “Saved by the Sun”. See, Al Gore isn’t necessarily right. The sun is good, warmth is good. I’m not even going to read the description of this episode, because I’m completely and wholly convinced that it’s entirely about how global warming will prevent sad deaths on frozen mountains in the winter — people will be saved by the sun. Yes, that’s the only thing it could possibly be about. It’s certainly not about taking solar energy seriously again due to rising oil prices and trouble in the Middle East. No way.
