9:00pm e/p "Big Ideas for a Small Planet: Cities" - A Portland real estate developer is the pioneering force behind turning a polluted brown field into a flourishing sustainable community; years of research, engineering design, and money will be put to the test when an energy innovator submerges the first two underwater turbines in New York City's East river; and a band of guerilla gardeners sneak around in the middle of the night to beautify blighted urban plots of unused land with local plants and flowers for the community to enjoy.

9:30pm e/p Crapshoot: The Gamble with Our Wastes - Directed by Jeff McKay. This Canadian documentary examines the origins and evolution of the sewer, that marvel of engineering that flushes away our daily wastes, out of sight and out of mind. But while the sewers of classical Rome helped define a civilization, today's sewers carry heavy metals, chemicals, solvents and other materials the Romans could scarcely imagine. Traveling through Canada, Sweden, the United States and India, McKay reveals how these potentially toxic wastes can end up back where they started, above ground, on farms and in the food chain. The film looks at how different communities have responded to mounting evidence of health risks posed by sewer sludge, and interviews the engineers, activists and ordinary citizens who advocate a new approach to waste disposal.

Consisting of three hours of programming, THE GREEN will present original series and documentary premieres about the earth's ecology and concepts of "green" living that balance human needs with responsible care for the planet. THE GREEN reflects the current tipping point in public awareness about ecological issues and the trend towards environmentally sustainable approaches to modern living.

Leading off each edition of THE GREEN at 9:00pm is the original program "Big Ideas for a Small Planet," a documentary series presenting the forward-thinking designers, products and processes that are on the leading edge of a new green world. Each episode revolves around a different green theme as it spotlights a specific innovator or innovation that has the potential to transform our everyday lives. The individuals profiled range from scientists to fashion and product designers, entrepreneurs to first-time inventors.

Each episode of "Big Ideas for a Small Planet" is paired with a thematically complimentary documentary premiere at 9:30pm e/p. For example, the debut episode of "Big Ideas for a Small Planet" explores alternative fuel sources, and is followed by the television premiere of Crude Awakening - The Oil Crash, a look at the past, present and future of the world's oil reserves.
