02:00 PM: Nature

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:00:00 PST

For thousands of years, wolves hunted buffalo across the vast North American plains until the westward settlement of the continent saw the virtual extinction of these vast herds and their eternal predators, the wolves. However, this ancient relationship was not lost altogether and continues uninterrupted in just one location -- on the northern edge of the continent's central plains in a place named Wood Buffalo National Park. Today the ancestors of those ancient buffalo and wolves still engage in epic life and death dramas across this northern land. Packs of wolves up to 30 strong hunt the largest land mammals on the continent -- buffalo. By getting to know a specific pack of wolves and the individuals that make up the pack, we get a sense of how these two animal species (wolves and buffalo) live together in what seems like a forgotten corner of the world.

It's a golden age for planet hunters: NASA's Kepler mission has identified more than 3500 potential planets orbiting stars beyond our sun.

Bringing the creative power of veteran animators together with the latest discoveries in planet-hunting, this film shows the successes of the Kepler mission, taking us to planets beyond our solar system and providing a glimpse of creatures we might one day encounter.

A new documentary looks at the difficulties of prosecuting mass rape in international courts
In 1994, Rwanda's Hutu-led government began a campaign of ethnic cleansing that left more than 800,000 people dead, mostly members of the minority Tutsi population. An estimated 250,000 women, men and children were also brutally assaulted during mass rapes, which led to the world's first prosecution of rape as a war crime. A new documentary, "The Uncondemned," which premiered in theaters last month, takes an in-depth look at the difficulties of prosecuting mass rape in international courts by reconstructing the landmark case in Rwanda that changed the game for prosecuting rape as an act of genocide. Ivette Feliciano spoke with the filmmaker about the case.
