10am: Tasha the Polar Bear - 30 minutes Tasha and her brother Lars are growing up, and it's time for their mom to give them lessons on living by themselves. Tasha and Lars learn to hunt, hop ice floes, and avoid the mean-tempered bears.
11am: Growing Up Walrus - 42 minutes An orphaned baby walrus finds a new home thousands of miles away from the Alaskan beach where it is found. Named Nereus, the baby gets round the clock care from his human keepers at the Indianapolis Zoo.
12pm: Feast or Famine : 50 minutes Witness the longest elephant migration on Earth, see the great white sharks that cover thousands of miles each year from Hawaii to Mexico, and follow the golden jellyfish of Palau on a race to follow the sun.
1pm: Ice Worlds - 50 minutes Journey to the polar extremes of our planet. Freshwater is frozen and out of reach, and coupled with numbing temperatures, this makes life hard in frozen climates from the top to the bottom of the world.
2pm: Gabon: The Last Eden - 45 minutes Gabon may be the last best hope for many of Africa's native species - from forest elephants to lowland gorillas, sea-going hippos and the largest concentration of mandrills ever recorded.
3pm: Under Antarctic Ice - 60 minutes See the beauty of frozen underwater waterfalls, electric-blue icebergs and hear eerie siren songs of Weddell seals. Jellyfish with 30 foot tentacles float by sponges the size of bears, penguins assume underwater grace and killer whales arrive in numbers.
4pm: Predator and Prey- 25 minutes Journey on land and undersea for a riveting look at many species - from caribou and cheetahs to sea lions and sharks - as they either stalk their prey or avoid being stalked themselves.
