TERRA 521: Chesapeake Gold

Oysters were once capable of filtering all the water in the Chesapeke Bay in two days. Now after centuries of Oyster harvesting the bay is no longer capable of cleaning itself. A new brand of oystermen is emerging to meet the needs of the bay while also satisfying customers who are hungry for Chesapeake oysters. These Oystermen have replaced antiquated dredging techniques with aquculture, or oyster farming, and have discovered a sustainable way to harvest oysters while also helping to clean up the bay.

TERRA 340: A Life with Skulls PART TWO

Ray Bandar is not your average museum curator. How could he be with nicknames like Dr. Bones and Reptile Ray? He spends his days dressed in tattered clothes, walking San Francisco's beaches in search of the ultimate specimens for his collection - and what is he collecting? Skulls! Not just any old skulls though - these skulls are for one of the most diverse and exotic museum collections in the world. Seals, sharks, lions, hyenas - Ray has collected them all! So put on your swim suit and grab a towel as we head to the beach with filmmaker Beth Cataldo for "A Life With Skulls".
