In this new series, best-selling science and
technology author Steven Johnson (Where
Good Ideas Come From, Everything Bad is
Good for You) examines the fascinating stories
of the unlikely people whose ideas have made
our modern world possible. this six-part series
premieres on October 15 with back-to-back
episodes beginning at 8 p.m.
The series looks at the little-known stories
of the men and women who came up with
revolutionary innovations that have had far
reaching consequences beyond their original
intent and play a role in just about every aspect of our daily lives. The ideas are broken
down into the following themes that encompass the pillars of modern civilization.
Clean - October 15 Dirty water has killed more humans than all the wars of
history combined, but in the last 150 years, a series of radical ideas, extraordinary
innovations and unsung heroes have changed our world. Johnson plunges into a
sewer to understand what made a maverick engineer decide to lift the city of Chicago
with jackscrews in order to build America’s first sewer system.
Time - October 15 Board a submarine with Johnson to discover what a lack of
natural light means for a sailor’s working day and visit Heathrow, the world’s busiest
airport, to try to get timings right at air traffic control. The story of getting a grip on
time is full of curious garage tinkerers. One of them was so exasperated by the chaos
caused by the hundreds of local times zones in the U.S. that he fought to standardize
time into four zones.
Glass - October 22 Consider how the invention of the mirror spurred on the
Renaissance, how glass lenses allow us to reveal worlds within worlds and how,
deep beneath the ocean, glass is essential to communication. Johnson learns about
the daring exploits of glassmakers who were forced to work under threat of death, a
physics teacher who liked to fire molten glass from a crossbow and a scientist whose
tinkering allowed 600 million people to see a man set foot on the moon.
Light - October 29 Johnson relates the story of people who take us out of the
dark and into the light. Hear about Edison’s light bulb, which he didn’t actually
invent, and learn how an 18th-century shipping community discovered a source
of illumination by putting a kid inside a whale’s head. Dispelling the myth of the
individual “eureka” moment, Johnson reveals that teamwork and collaboration led
the way to the most transformative ideas.
Cold - November 2 Only in the last 200 years have humans learned how to make
things cold. Steven Johnson explains how ice entrepreneur Frederic Tudor made ice
delivery one of the biggest export business in the U.S. and describes the place where
Clarence Birdseye, the father of the frozen food industry, experienced his eureka moment.
Sound - November 12 Imagine a world without the power to capture or transmit
sound. Journey to the Arcy sur Cure caves in northern France, where Johnson finds
the first traces of the desire to record sound - 30,000 years ago. He also learns about
the difference that radio made in the civil rights movement and the WWII weapon
that would make possible the modern cell phone network.
13-part series begins October 16
8 p.m. Thursday / 5:30 a.m. Sunday
This series delves into the family farm dynamic, and how to preserve and protect
those farms from a dying legacy. Once a staple in every community, family farms
have become increasingly rare as the industry has changed over the years. This shift
has created the opportunity for existing farms to grow, and the challenge lies in
preserving the legacy these parents and grandparents have poured their lives into.
Estate and financial planners Galen Dody and Wes Hentges, both of whom have
farming backgrounds, work closely with individuals who strive to protect their family
farms. Many farmers today face the challenges that come with increasing government
regulation and taxation, varying levels of farming interest of heirs and uncertainty of
how to preserve assets and minimize estate taxes.
The untold story to which every farming family can relate is the difficulty and unique
dynamics involved in passing the legacy to the next generation. Many are faced with
issues like divorce, remarriage, or children with varying levels of interest in the farm.
Others are faced with heirs who disagree on whether or not to keep a farm, or estate
taxes looming in the future. The impasse often produces a catastrophic outcome for
those who are not prepared.
Planning is the key to minimizing taxes, preserving assets, and most importantly,
preserving the legacy of the family farm. One of the best things about legacy
planning is that it allows farmers to make choices now so children aren’t left with
tough decisions or financial burdens later.
This series navigates through the planning process by simplifying the integration of
documents like trusts and buy-sell agreements and examines the road to preserving
the family farm. Anyone who plans to leave a legacy, financial or otherwise, will
gain valuable insight into their own plans by watching AgriLegacy on KMOS-TV.

In the last half-century, women have fought their way into nearly every sphere of American
life, from the battlefield to the comedy club, the soundstage to the Senate. In each field, women
have pried open, and profoundly reshaped, the central institutions of American life and culture.
Through intimate interviews with trailblazing women known and unknown, viewers will be
given a rare glimpse -sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always candid - of what it was like to
be pioneers in their fields.
Women in Hollywood - October 7 A showcase of the women of showbiz, from the earliest
pioneers to present-day power players, as they influence the creation of one of the country’s
biggest commodities: entertainment. Hear from television powerhouse Shonda Rhimes, who
created Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, and other writers and performers. Julia Roberts narrates.
Women in Space - October 14 Trace the history of women pioneers in the U.S. space
program. Some, like aviators Wally Funk and Jerrie Cobb, passed the same grueling tests as
male astronauts, only to be dismissed as a distraction. Jodie Foster narrates the program, which
includes interviews with astronauts Eileen Collins, Mae Jemison, and Peggy Whitson.
Women in War - October 21 A look at American women in war - from Vietnam to the present
- as nurses, soldiers, journalists, diplomats and spies. Featured are Linda Bray, the first woman
to lead troops into battle, and Valerie Plame Wilson, who was“outed” as a high-level spy. Also,
stories of military leaders who have broken through gender barriers, like General Angela Salinas,
USMC, and Vice Admiral Michelle Howard, U.S. Navy. Narrated by Christiane Amanpour.
Women in Business - October 28 The story of the exceptional women who have taken the
world of business by storm. Some of the featured business leaders include Ursula Burns, the CEO
of Xerox; Sallie Krawcheck, Wall Street powerhouse; Cathy Hughes, the first African-American
woman to head a publicly traded corporation; and Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, whose
book, Lean In, ignited a national conversation about feminism and equality in the workplace.
Women in Politics - November 4 profiles women in public office who were “firsts” in their
fields. Trailblazing leaders like Hillary Clinton, Senators Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Lisa
Murkowski (R-AK) along with Patricia Schroeder, the first woman elected to Congress from
Colorado, Olympia Snowe, the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the House of
Representatives, and Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman to serve in Congress,
provide a backdrop for younger women like Rashida Tlaib, the first Muslim-American woman
elected to the Michigan House, and Raquel Castaneda-Lopez, who chronicles her run for Detroit
City Council. Narrated by Alfre Woodard.
Women in Comedy tracks the rise of women in the world of comedy, from the “dangerous”
comedy of ‘70s sitcoms like Maude to the groundbreaking women of the 1980s American
comedy club boom and building to today’s landscape. This documentary aired last month.
