    Mississippi River Quest is a mini television series based on the well-known adventures of Huckleberry Finn. National Geographic makes this series exciting by using the intelligence and instincts of a filmmaker, a scientist, and a professional fisherman. These three take viewers on a thrilling 2300 mile river journey that proves their ability to survive. Mississippi River Quest not only takes viewers on an adventure, it educates them as the filmmaker, scientist, and fisherman use any skills and means necessary to complete their mission -- riding across the Mississippi River. Their three-part journey starts with "Headwaters to Minneapolis", then "Minneapolis to Memphis", and finishes with "Memphis to the Gulf". For a moment, place yourself in a vessel while trying to ride across the large Mississippi River; it is no easy task! But, three people remain determined to complete their long journey and they will let nothing stand in their way -- not even water!moreless

This television special focuses on informing viewers about new developments in the world of green energy, and is hosted by former CNN journalist Frank Sesno. The program is also supplemented by an online forum which allows users to discuss current topics concerning the program content.

The show's pilot featured James Connaughton, former environmental advisor to the president and Shai Agassi, founder of Better Place, a company which seeks to reduce the nation's dependency on petroleum. The discussion in this episode centered around the question, "Can we move rapidly away from fossil fuels in the near future?" Viewers were also told to engage in the conversation by submitting their own ideas to the program's website. Subsequent episodes have continued with this format by asking questions such as "How can we reduce our carbon footprint?" and "What is an innovation that improves how we generate or use energy?" The program is funded by groups such as the Tawani Foundation and Noblis.moreless

    Discovery Channel (ended 2010)
    Bad Universe is a television series on the Discovery Channel that attempts to explain some of the phenomena in the universe, while demystifying those that are harder to prove. The show is hosted by Phil Plait, an American astronomer who has spend much of his career dispelling misconceptions about the physical world. His show Bad Universe takes this commitment to universal truth to new levels. Throughout the episodes, Plait goes to tasks against what he calls "bad science," debunking false claims that get passed around as scientific truths about astronomy. Much like Mythbusters, much of the things Plait tries to demystify is the type of science you see in blockbuster Hollywood movies. Asteroid apocalypses, among other cataclysmic scenarios, are played out and scrutinized for their legitimacy. In addition to letting you know whether or not the event is plausible, Plait proposes a few ways to prevent them for happening, or at least mitigating their overall destructiveness.moreless
