Butte’s history is a saga of unbridled capitalism and urban vitality. It is the story of the evolution and eventual eclipse of skilled manual labor; of immigration and unionism; of corporate colonialism and global geopolitics; of rapid urban development and its social ramifications; of the evolving roles of women in contemporary society; and of an influential but largely unappreciated frontier experience.

MISSOULA STAFF

Imagine 10,000 miles of mine shafts and tunnels, ore trains running day and night, round-the-clock blasting and drilling, 15,000 men speaking a dozen different languages and working in as many as 50 mines. The city of Butte was, in effect, a mammoth subterranean machine, one so powerful that within two generations it transformed a small mountain settlement into a full-blown urban-industrial metropolis. Sometimes called the Pittsburgh of the West, Butte is the native home of the copper mining industry, and its productivity strongly influenced the material and economic well-being of America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

MONDAY, MARCH 2  7PM  Also 3/8 10am; Sat 3/14 4:30pm MTPBS-CREATE  3/4 9am; 3/11 5:30pm

MontanaPBS producers Gus Chambers and Paul Zalis present this new, one-hour documentary, Charlie Russell’s Old West. This program focuses on Russell’s artistic genius and his role in witnessing, and visually chronicling, a pivotal moment in the history of the American West—the end of the open range. The film takes a reflective exploration of Russell’s work and influence. There are photographs and examples of his early works, sketches, illustrations, and major works. The documentary opens with Russell witnessing the Pablo buffalo roundup, one of the last in the West. It was a thundering and wild experience that both inspired and influenced his later work. This dramatic beginning should quickly draw in viewers who are interested in the American West. ABOVE  Charles M. Russell (center) fashions a figure to entertain roughnecks. Taken on a pack

Measurable factors like snowpack and precipitation, along with high and low temperatures, affect stream flow and the growing season, which in turn have a big effect on crop choices and production techniques.

Trail

THURSDAY, MARCH 12  7PM  Also 3/14 2am

In 1865, the Civil War has finally ended. While some returned home, others sought new begingings Westward. Many head out on the Oregon Trail to find their destinies—manifest or otherwise. Some seek their fortunes in the gold fields of Wyoming and Montana. After failing at mining, John Bozeman decides to mine the miners. He and mountain man John Jacobs begin searching for a short cut from the Oregon Trail to boomtown Virginia City—delivering potential prospectors to the “Promised Land,” for a healthy fee of course. The trail they find follows long-established north-south game and Indian routes and through prime buffalo grazing country. In July 1863, Bozeman and Jacobs guide their first wagon train on the newly marked trail. The are quickly confronted by a large party of Northern Cheyenne and Sioux warriors, who warn them to turn back or be killed. This is the beginning of what will become Red Cloud’s War. The US government then builds and militarizes forts along the Trail to protect travelers. As for Bozeman, in 1864 he settles at the “Gates to the Gallatin Valley” (present-day Bozeman Pass) and with two others establishes the town that will bear his name, Bozeman, Montana. Just three years later he is killed under suspicious circumstances while traveling the Yellowstone River. IMAGE COURTESY OF RV MAGAZINE

Niall Ferguson’s Networld Niall Ferguson (pictured), author of bestseller The Square and the Tower, hosts this new series. Ferguson visits network theorists, social scientists and data analysts to explore the history of social networks. From the Reformation and 17th century witch-hunting, through the American Revolution and to the nightmare visions of Orwell’s 1984, Ferguson explores the intersection of social media, technology and the spread of cultural movements. Reviewing classic experiments and cutting-edge research, Ferguson demonstrates how human behavior, disruptive technology and profit can energize ideas and communication, ultimately changing the world.

2:00 Everly Brothers: Harmonies from Heaven COURTESY OF MARTY SOHL / MET OPERA

The final scene of Puccini’s “Turandot” with Yusif Eyvazov as Calàf and Christine Goerke in the title role.

FRANCO ZEFFIRELLI’S ICONIC PRODUCTION

Turandot Great Performances at the Met FRIDAY, MARCH 20  8PM  Also 3/23 3am

Experience Franco Zeffirelli’s dazzling production of Puccini’s Turandot. Soprano Christine Goerke stars as the beautiful but brutal Princess Turandot alongside tenor Yusif Eyvazov as her suitor Calàf. Soprano Eleonora Buratto as Liù and bass-baritone James Morris as Timur complete the cast. Metropolitan Opera music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts and soprano Angel Blue—star of the Met’s current production of Porgy and Bess—is the program’s host. Zeffirelli’s production of Puccini’s masterpiece is set in the mythic past in Peking, China. Outside the Imperial Palace, an announcement is made: any prince seeking to marry Turandot must answer three riddles. If he fails, he will die. The most recent suitor who failed at this task, the Prince of Persia, will be executed at the moon’s rising. Among the onlookers are the slave girl, Liù, her elderly master and the young Calàf, who recognizes the master as his long-lost father, Timur, vanquished king of Tartary. As the Prince of Persia goes to his death, the crowd calls upon the princess to spare him, but Turandot orders the execution to continue. Transfixed by the princess’ beauty, Calàf decides he’s going to win her. Three ministers of state try to discourage him, but Calàf is unmoved and strikes the gong that announces a new suitor. Turandot’s father, Emperor Altoum, tries to persuade Calàf to reconsider his decision, but he will not be dissuaded. Turandot arrives and recounts the story of her ancestor who was abducted and killed by a conquering prince. She reveals this has turned her against men and her revenge is not letting any man marry her. Turandot then poses her three riddles to Calàf who answers them all correctly. The crowd erupts in joy and the princess begs her father not to give her to the stranger. Hoping he can win her love, Calàf presents Turandot with a challenge of his own: if she can learn his name by dawn, he will forfeit his life.
