When Women Ruled the World with Kara Cooney

Sunday, February 20 at 3 p.m. and Monday, February 21 at 7 p.m.

“Throughout history, powerful women have been called many things – witches, regents and seductresses. But there was a time in the ancient world when at least one was called “King.” Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, will introduce you to some strong female leaders, whose power was compromised from the start.”

“Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Andy Mann uses his work to bridge the gap between science and policy. From his early days as a rock climber to his current passion documenting the critically endangered oceanic whitetip shark, his stunning images tell the story of our rapidly changing planet, from top to bottom.”

Social By Nature with Ronan Donovan

Sunday, April 24 at 3 p.m. and Monday, April 25 at 7 p.m.

“Chimpanzees, wolves and gorillas are among the most charismatic of the social mammals we know – besides ourselves. They’re also under threat. Join biologist-turned-photographer Ronan Donovan as he talks about the incredible similarities we humans share with other social mammals in the animal kingdom, and what we can learn from them.”
