Inside The Tube: Going Underground  "The World's First Underground"  Rob Bell explains how London's overcrowding problem was the issue that prompted the building of the world's first underground railway, which went into operation in January 1863 linking Paddington and a terminus at Farringdon. Rob lives out a boyhood dream of riding on one of the original steam trains that carried passengers through tunnels, and learns how unpleasant it must have been. 3 of 4G

Outdoor Idaho  "Wooden Boats, Wondrous Lakes"  We follow the wake of classic boats, with their graceful lines, across Idaho's big lakes, and we meet the people who have made the restoration of wooden boats their passion. The hour-long program visits wooden boat shows in McCall, Coeur d'Alene and Sandpoint, and explores the character of these wooden works of art.G
6:30 pm 
Idaho Experience  "Taking The Reins"  Many women of the American West engaged in unpaid servitude and sacrifice- but for some, the West afforded a light of freedom and equality. Taking the Reins offers two such examples. Katherine Caroline Wilkins was born in 1857 in the Oregon Territory, the daughter of fortune-seeking pioneers. She parlayed 40 dollars into a fortune and became one of the most successful horse sellers in the United States. The show also features a contemporary of Wilkins, May Arkwright Hutton. Born poor in Ohio and abandoned by her parents, Hutton would become one of the richest women in the American West. Hutton ran a boarding house in the Wallace area while also investing in mines, including the Hercules, which turned out to be on top of a huge silver vein. Hutton and her husband used their newfound wealth to help many people and causes.G
7:00 pm 
Expeditions with Patrick McMillan  "California, An Ecological Island"  In this incredibly biodiverse state with a rich geologic history, McMillan examines the coasts, shrublands, deserts and mountains of San Diego county. D
7:30 pm 
In The Americas with David Yetman  "A Gaucho Gathering In Uruguay"  Each year several thousand gauchos - Uruguayan cowboys - gather in the interior town of Tacuarembo for a festival and parade. We travel to a ranch deep in the interior and follow the gaucho life and their preparations for the parade.G
8:00 pm 
Oregon Field Guide  "Toad Crossing, Wind Turbine School, Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp"  An army of children comes to the rescue of thousands of baby toads whose path puts them in deadly peril. The episode climbs 300 feet above ground to learn about wind turbines.G
8:30 pm 
This Is Utah  "Food for Thought"  From farm-to-table operations to cuisine as art form, food can inspire us in surprising ways. We'll meet local artist Kent Christensen, who uses depictions of candy as a societal critique, get an inside look at Utah's craft chocolate industry, and visit Mesa Farm Market, a sustainable farm in Caineville that sells goat cheese, oven-fired bread, organic produce, and more.G
