Call the Midwife
Sundays at 7 p.m.
The nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House move into their new premises, and Sister Winifred, a warm-hearted, slightly innocent young woman, arrives from the Mother House. Sister Monica Joan's increasingly eccentric behavior causes concern, yet she's the one who solves a perplexing medical mystery. New housewife and mother Chummy spearheads an Open Day at the Community Centre. After helping to deliver a neighbor's baby, she decides she wants to return to midwifery.

Antiques Roadshow - Kansas City, Missouri

Join the Roadshow for three episodes as they visit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, the Toy and Miniature Museum and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Highlights include an 1891 Kansas City Fire Chief presentation badge made by the fine jeweler Mermod & Jaccard and given to Kansas City Fire Chief George Hale at the turn of the 20th-century; a bold 1796 Chinese bronze censer that was recently found on the floor of a local antique mall and a pristine 1965 Roy Lichtenstein screen print that was bought by the owner's parents at a Kansas City department store in the mid-1960s.

Pioneers of Television
Tuesdays at 7 p.m.
The four-part series examines the people who left their imprint on sitcoms, late-night, variety and game shows in the early days of the medium. The program features interviews with legendary stars, including Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Art Linkletter, Andy Griffith, Betty White, Phyllis Diller, Jim Nabors, Marlo Thomas, Jonathan Winters, Ed McMahon and Merv Griffin. Using never-before-seen images and showcasing timeless clips, the documentary examines the entertainers that provided the classic scenes that still amuse us today.

Nature Touching the Wild
April 16 at 7 p.m.
Joe Hutto's idea of research is anything but normal, dedicating seven years of his life to becoming a wild mule deer. The herd would ordinarily run from any human but, incredibly, these keenly intelligent animals come to regard this stranger as one of their own. Accepted by the matriarch, he walks among them, is even groomed by them, and can lie with a pregnant doe talking to its unborn fawns. As he crosses the species divide, Joe is tapping into a new understanding about these elusive animals, literally entering a deer society.

NOVA Inside Animal Minds
April 16 at 8 p.m.
What is it like to be a dog, a shark or a bird? This question is now getting serious attention from scientists who study animal senses. Humans rely on smell, sight, taste, touch and sound; other animals have super-powered versions of these senses, and a few have extra senses we don't have at all. From a dog that seems to use smell to tell time to a dolphin that can "see" with its ears, discover how animals use their senses in ways we humans can barely imagine. But it's not just the senses that are remarkable - it's the brains that process them. NOVA goes into the minds of animals to "see" the world in an entirely new way.

Sportspage
April 17 at 7 p.m.

Show-Me Ag
April 17 at 8:30 p.m.
Once relegated to status of pets or hobbies, some producers of sheep and goats are becoming commercial producers with decent returns and strong markets. It’s not easy but there is plenty of help from Lincoln University and MU specialists eager to help producers make a go of it. Joining us in the studio are two of these specialists, Susan Jaster of Lincoln University and Nathanial Cahill of MU Extension.
We also speak to Susie and Jim Hallar of Holden, MO and Steve Iles of Lexington. These lamb and chevon producers have years of experience and are eager to share what they’ve learned with new producers.
