Followed by

Two NOVA Special Presentations Air on Wednesday, September 28 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

In its worst crisis since World War II, Japan faces disaster on an epic scale: a rising death toll in the tens of thousands, massive destruction of homes and businesses, shortages of water and power and the specter of nuclear reactor meltdowns.


President’s

message

It is difficult to truly gauge what happened in Japan on March 11, 2011. The island nation was rocked by the fourth-largest earthquake in recorded history. This was followed by a 30-foot-high wave of water that crashed onto shore, penetrating over six miles inland, destroying everything in its path. Left in the wake of destruction, Japan began to rebuild, picking up the pieces of the worst crisis the country had faced since World War II. The disaster in Japan is the subject of a new NOVA special, "Japan’s Killer Quake." Airing Wednesday, September 28 at 9 p.m., "Japan’s Killer Quake" offers a real, focused look at the whole picture. Combining eyewitness videos, on-the-spot reporting and educated analysis, the program delves deeply into the manner in which the earthquake affected Japan and its people. The program also includes exclusive helicopter footage, allowing for an in-depth scientific assessment of the catastrophe. "Japan’s Killer Quake" is an ideal tribute, marrying story and fact. Also, Masterpiece Mystery! returns with "Inspector Lewis" and four brand-new episodes. Oxford born and bred, this skilled detective uses his wit and intelligence to bring down would-be criminals in and around his alma mater. The new season brings with it new challenges. From political intrigue to blackmail to religious fervor, Inspector Robert Lewis must see through the madness with the help of his loyal companion, Sergeant James Hathaway. The new season opens with "Old, Unhappy, Far Off Things," premiering Sunday, September 4 at 9 p.m. And in our continued commitment to bring viewers great performances, CPTV presents Live from Lincoln Center: "New York Philharmonic Opening Night Gala Concert." In the 170th season opener, the New York Philharmonic, under the baton of Alan Gilbert, offers a night of brilliant music with a range of pieces from both sides of the Atlantic. With selections from Samuel Barber, Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner, it's sure to be an evening to remember.

By Erik Callo Disaster, tragedy…both words describe the impact an earthquake can have on a community. But what if an entire country is affected? In its worst crisis since World War II, Japan faces disaster on an epic scale: a rising death toll in the tens of thousands, massive destruction of homes and businesses, shortages of water and power and the specter of nuclear meltdown at three reactors. The earthquake that hit the northern coast of Japan on March 11, 2011, was recorded at a magnitude of 9.0, and was the world’s fourth-largest earthquake since record keeping began in 1900 and the worst ever to shake Japan. The seismic shock wave released over 4,000 times the energy of the largest nuclear test ever conducted; it shifted the earth’s axis by 6 inches and shortened the day by a few millionths of a second. It generated an unprecedented tsunami, obliterating coastal villages and towns in a matter of minutes. In some areas, the tsunami climbed over 100 feet in height and traveled six miles inland.

NOVA explores the devastating impact of the earthquake and its aftermath in "Japan's Killer Quake," airing on Wednesday, September 28 at 9 p.m., followed by Surviving the Tsunami: A NOVA Special Presentation at 10 p.m. Both shows offer eyewitness accounts and detailed investigations into the disaster, capturing the unfolding human drama and offering a clear-headed description of

what triggered the earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear crisis. They also address the question: Can science and technology ever prevent devastation in the face of the overwhelmingly powerful forces of nature? In addition, Surviving the Tsunami: A NOVA Special Presentation gives viewers scientific context to the chain of events responsible for one of the most destructive disasters in recorded history. Amazingly, amateur and professional photographers captured it all on video, including remarkable tales of human survival, as ordinary citizens became heroes in a drama they never could have imagined. As the waves rush in, a daughter struggles to help her elderly mother ascend their rooftop to safety; a man climbs onto an overpass just as the wave overtakes his car. These never-before-seen stories are captured in video and retold after the fact by the survivors who reveal what they were thinking as they made their life-saving decisions. Their stories provide lessons on how people should all act in the face of life-threatening disasters. September 2011 | Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network 113

In June 2011, Paul Simon and his eight-piece band filled the stage at Webster Hall, the historic New York City club. The packed house witnessed an intimate and highly charged concert that spanned songs from Simon's brilliant career. The show was the culmination of a sold-out two-month U.S. tour of theaters and small clubs, a rare and spectacularly up-close event for fans. Joined by many of the musicians who have played with him since his Graceland album, Simon's repertoire in the concert ranges from his years with Art Garfunkel ("Sound of Silence") through a solo career which produced classics including "Kodachrome," "Slip Slidin' Away," "Boy in the Bubble," "Diamonds on the Souls of Her Shoes," "Obvious Child," "Still Crazy after All These Years," "Late in the Evening," and many others, through the most current and much-lauded album, So Beautiful or So What, considered his best work since Graceland and Rhythm of the Saints. The propulsive title song, "So Beautiful or So What," the emotionally charged ballads "Questions for the Angels" and "Dazzling Blue," and the wry hit "Afterlife," bring the career retrospective to a powerful and contemporary immediacy.
