Season premiere episode features five new stories.
CARHENGE FOR SALE
It might be out of the way for many drivers, but it’s the mystery that draws them to it. Not Stonehenge, but Carhenge- its American made brother. We explore Carhenge’s not so mysterious history and look to its future as the sun rises for the summer solstice.
DRIVING IN THE DIRT
For the Holliman family, racing cars is a family tradition and Eagle, Nebraska is the place to do it. There’s just one problem—it’s dangerous. Yet in spite of burns, concussions, broken ribs and cars ripped in half, Terry and his son Tad are keeping the tradition alive.Catching A Second Wind
A second chance sparks a friendship that brings chamber music back to Omaha. Stuffy, you think? Hardly. Enjoy the work of “the rock stars of chamber music” and see how Omaha Consort members work like lunatics to make it happen.
WHERE’S THE WATER?
“Where’s the Water?” looks at the current drought by bringing us along to the Summer Orientation about Rivers, an outdoor children’s camp that takes place each summer near Aurora. River-centric activities are usually the focus of the camp, but this year, extremely low waters have forced camp leaders to improvise. In this segment, we learn that low waters, while bad news for the health of the state, can indeed still provide “teachable moments” for the children, who experience new ways in which humans and the environment interact.
Forty-five million people worldwide are blind. Most live in developing countries, and most could be cured. We follow the story of a Nebraska eye doctor who volunteers his time to restore sight to the poor in Haiti at the amazing cost of $20 per eye.
