Inside Washington   The Republican National Convention: did Mitt Romney make the sale? Did he pull the Republican Party together?

Botany of Desire   Based on Michael Pollan's best-selling book, this special embarks on an exploration of the human relationship with the plant world as seen from the plants' point of view. Frances McDormand narrates this program that shows how four familiar species - the apple, the tulip, marijuana and the potato - evolved to satisfy human yearnings for sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control. The program visits Idaho to discuss the commercial growth of the potato, which was originally domesticated in Peru more than 8,000 years ago.G

Moyers & Company  "The Resurrection of Ralph Reed"  While Romney, Ryan, Christie, and Rubio get the lion's share of attention during the Republican Convention this week, three one-time college Republicans who are now the party's real power-brokers -- Karl Rove, Ralph Reed, and Grover Norquist -- are busy doing what they do best: leveraging their political, religious, and financial resources to back pro-corporate, anti-government objectives at the core of the conservative agenda. The true surprise at the Tampa convention is Ralph Reed's resurrection. When the former head of the Christian Coalition was discovered to have raked in millions of dollars from the super lobbyist -- and eventually convicted felon -- Jack Abramoff, Reed wound up in political purgatory. D

Outdoor Idaho  "Idaho's Centennial Trail"  From the Nevada border all the way to the Canadian border, the state's Centennial Trail winds through every kind of terrain Idaho has to offer and passes by many of the state's scenic highlights.
