10/03/2020 (10:30AM - 11:00AM) (Saturday) : Host Dylan Dreyer takes us on an adventure to the mysterious Hebrides archipelago off the northern coast of Scotland. Isolated from the mainland, this island chain has become the perfect breeding ground for millions of creatures, earning it the name "Europe's Last Wilderness." We travel to the Outer Hebrides chain that hosts one of the largest gatherings of grey seals on the planet, then we head inland to see one of the largest deer in the world, the red deer. We'll watch as these sturdy bucks fight aggressively with their mighty antlers to win mating rights for the island's female population. Finally, we explore one of the region's most mysterious animals: ancient man. We'll explore his ancient stone dwellings carved into the landscape and see towering stone monuments whose mystical origins still baffle experts today.

"THE CHAMPION WITHIN"

"LEAD WITH SPEED (HOC401)"

10/03/2020 (11:30AM - 12:00PM) (Saturday) : In today's episode of The Champion Within, host Lauren Thompson leads us through some of the most inspiring stories in sports. We start in St. Louis where NHL forward Jaden Schwartz has made an impact in the community. After his sister lost her battle with leukemia in 2011, Jaden started an organization in her name that raises awareness for bone marrow donors and recipients. And we see firsthand the impact the organization has made. Then, we race down the track to a story of an unbreakable bond between racers Robert Wickens and James Hinchcliffe. The two grew up together and both became professional racers. Even when tragedy struck their careers, they were always there to help each other through the darkest days. We keep the speed up on the track, but this time with sprinter Noah Lyles. He's a world-class sprinter but has many more talents. Lyles balances both sides of the brain and continues to thrive on each side. Plus, the story of one of the youngest recruits in college sports. At just 12 years old, Brad Dalke was offered a scholarship to play golf at the University of Oklahoma. But would this dream come true be too much pressure for such a young athlete?

"CARIBBEAN (EDD105)"

10/17/2020 (10:00AM - 10:30AM) (Saturday) : The Caribbean is a string of more than 7,000 islands between North America and South America. There are plenty of white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters, but did you know there's a wild side to this beachgoer's paradise? We take a trip to the hidden parts of the Caribbean Islands, where giant sea turtles lay their eggs, ancient volcanoes turn into bat caves and sunken ships get a second life as manmade reefs for coral and marine life. We watch as violent storms reach hurricane strength, sending waves crashing down on delicate underwater ecosystems. Find out where the animals hide when they are caught up in the storms and what they will do to rebuild once the weather passes. We discover thermal boiling lakes on the island of Dominica, where volcanoes simmer just below the surface. We find out how the national birds on the island of Trinidad get their deep scarlet color. See where these birds roost as the sun sets over the island. We catch up with the hummingbirds, some of the smallest and speediest inhabitants of the Caribbean. Just a couple of inches tall, hummingbirds are constantly on the move. Find out what fuels their diet and how much they must eat to keep those wings airborne.

"TURKEY (EDD106)"

10/17/2020 (10:30AM - 11:00AM) (Saturday) : We travel to Turkey, wedged between Europe and the Middle East. Discover why Turkey is a country of extreme temperatures and landscapes. We go rock climbing with Turkey's Anatolian wild goats as they trek along thousand-foot cliffs. In Turkey, conditions deteriorate with heavy downpours, blinding snowstorms and even burning heat. Find out how this country's largest land mammal, the brown bear, copes with such a hostile environment. We visit the country's alpine meadows where swarms of honey bees store up on nectar and water before heading back to their hives for the winter. We soar above the rock formations known as fairy chimneys created by ancient volcanoes and then head inland to Lake Yay. That's where we will find some of the most colorful birds in the world, including the bright pink greater flamingos. Watch as these long-limbed birds fish for shrimp in salty waters. With the moon as our guide, we follow along with seafaring leatherback turtles as they make their way to Turkey's wild coast. The sandy beaches are a popular nesting spot for the turtles, but there are plenty of predators like ghost crabs lurking nearby. As the baby loggerhead turtles finally hatch, it's a race back to open ocean waters before the crabs can catch up.

Katie Sowers has lived and breathed football her whole life, and her coaching and leadership ability has landed her a job as an NFL assistant coach. She's also leading as an example for more gender diversity in the world of a male-dominated sport. We then see the power of sports in the touching story of Shane Caldwell. Shane battled cancer for years, but that never stopped him from living his life to the absolute fullest. His story is an inspiration for not just sports fans, but for everyone.
