    For years experts have been warning that discontents of all stripes might make disease part of the arsenal of terror. Of all the deadly microbes that might be used by terrorists there is one that is especially formidable: smallpox. Once a major scourge of humanity, deadly smallpox was vanquished in 1977. But some experts worry that smallpox cultures could have fallen, or have the potential to fall, into the hands of terrorists.

    Brown vs. the Board of Education was the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared the old "separate but equal" policies of many school boards unconstitutional. The Brown case triggered numerous court mediated desegregation policies around the country, all designed to get equal education to all students. Producer Kathy Baron looks at school districts in California, fifty years after the Brown decision. What, in fact, does an equal education look like?

    The Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, is a common virus that touches billions of human beings in one way or another — from a tiny wart on the hand to invasive cancer. HPV can be found worldwide, yet most people who are infected never show any symptoms. The virus can "hide" for years from a person's immune system, with no apparent ill effects, and then awaken and trigger deadly disease.

    Gamma rays are the most intense form of radiation. As the Cold War focused on the spread of nuclear war, a U.S. spy satellite searching for clandestine nuclear weapons tests detected frequent, but brief, bursts of powerful gamma-rays, a possible signal of a hydrogen bomb explosion. Interviewing some of the original researchers of this phenomenon, Producer David Barrett Wilson takes us from that starting point through the beginning of scientific research into these bizarre surges of energy.

    How can a 20-year-old man who is blind, autistic and still believes in Santa Claus play the most sophisticated improvisational jazz piano? How can a child who appears withdrawn and mentally disabled gaze at a building for only a minute then draw an exact reproduction on paper? Producer Stephen Smith explores the mysterious powers of savants — people with profound mental disabilities who develop an island of genius in music, mathematics or art.

    The world of biology is a messy business. But the study of reproduction and evolution is crucial to understanding the nature of all things animal, vegetable, and even digital. The code that is used to build computer programs is much like our own DNA. And as it turns out, not only can computer programs have sex and reproduce, but they can also lie, cheat, steal, copy, infect and gang up on each other. In short, they can act a lot like humans, which is good news for evolutionary biologists.

    In conversations about the use of technology in schools, what you'll often hear is: Once we have a cadre of young teachers and administrators who've grown up with technology, computer use in schools will take off. This program examines that premise by following a young teacher, Brian Mason (7th grade American History) as he begins his second year in the classroom.

    "Truth is a pathless land" said the Indian spiritual leader and iconoclast J. Krishnamurti. He taught pacifism and harmony; he sought freedom through a transformation of the human psyche. People flocked to follow him as he moved across continents and through much of the twentieth century, spreading his word. He never wanted to be called a guru and yet his followers (who included Hollywood film stars) insisted on it.

    At the turn of this century some 5,000 refugee children arrived in the U.S. every year, penniless and alone, seeking asylum and freedom. A third were locked up - some alongside violent offenders. Until recently, many were deported back to traumatic home situations. The U.S. government does not provide them with lawyers, yet whether they can stay legally is decided in court. Reporter Gillian Karp follows two of these children, Juan Pablo from Honduras and Jimmy from Punjab, India. Why did they leave?

And is it important or even possible to become friends?

Laura kept an audio diary of her battle with the disease and her attempts to lead a normal life with lungs than often betrayed her. Laura died on March 20, 2003.

    Important clues to the origins of the solar system come from asteroids, comets and meteors, believed to be remnants from the early solar system. Until the early 1990s, the only information obtained on these bodies was through Earth-based observations, either by observing them in orbit or by examining the remnants that reach us here on Earth. Producer Dan Grossman investigates the history of our understanding of comets.

    Two 17-year-old students were gunned down by a fellow 15-year-old student in the hallways of Jefferson High School in Brooklyn, New York. Although unusual at school, it was not an uncommon occurrence in East New York City, an area where families shared their community with drug dealers. The year was 1991. Producer Maria Hinojosa talks to kids who had no protection against the violence that surrounded them, other than toting guns.

    The global economy: your view of it depends on where you are. For more than a century, trees in the Pacific Northwest have meant jobs. In rural Japan, trees have meant jobs as well. New log processing technology and the trade in raw logs is reshaping the way the timber industry in both countries does business. It's forcing a change in corporate culture, in consumer habits, and a way of life for many of those who work in timber.

    The summer of 2002 featured the worst drought in Arizona in nearly a century. It triggered a fire that burned over a half-million acres of National Forest land. It dried up watering holes and forced ranchers to cut their stock by up to a third. Wells ran dry and municipalities had to open water stations, much like gas stations. During that summer, producer Lex Gillespie toured Arizona and spoke with firefighters, park service personnel, farm families and community leaders about the impact of the drought.
