The Nazis built some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware and malevolent technology in history.

This new six-part series recounts World War II from a unique new perspective, uncovering the engineering secrets of iconic megastructures, telling the stories of the engineers who designed them and revealing how these structures sparked a technological revolution that changed warfare forever.
Follow three unconventional Christian teenagers coming of age in a small Califormia town.
Skateboarders Garrison and Kevin, and Garrison's on-and-off girlfriend, Skye, are in many ways living the archetypical American teen life. Growing up in the small southern California town of Santa Clarita, they hang out, listen to punk music, change their hairstyles (and hair colors) and complain about living in a place with nothing to do. They explore friendship, discover first love (and heartbreak) and dream about the future. They are unconventional, perhaps, because they combine their Christian faith with American teen culture. They also show remarkable candor in front of the camera.
As beautifully and vividly captured in the new documentary Only the Young, something else is different--the America around them. Foreclosed homes, empty swimming pools, trashy underpasses and a closed mini golf course form much of the visual poetry of Garrison and Kevin's daily skates around town. As high school graduation approaches, these signs of a nation in economic turmoil become dramatic realities that complicate the teens' relationships and their hopes for the future.

Live and Local, 4 pm today on WILL-FM: Live bluegrass and acoustic country!
9:30 pm Friday, July 12, on WILL-TV: Few know about the author of the widely read "Their Eyes Were Watching God."
Writer, folklorist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, a celebrated (and sometimes controversial) figure of the Harlem Renaissance, first rose to prominence with Mules and Men (1935) and cemented her reputation soon after with her 1937 masterwork, Their Eyes Were Watching God. However, few know about the woman behind this widely read and highly acclaimed novel — particularly the last 10 years of her life. THE LOST YEARS OF ZORA NEALE HURSTON delves into the writer's life, work and philosophies, concentrating on her very productive, but often overlooked, final decade. Interviews with Hurston experts and colleagues, letters from Hurston, and archival photographs piece together this fascinating chapter in the life of an American literary icon.

Champaign-based photographer Larry Kanfer has been developing his own images since he was 10 years old and is well known across the country for his pictures of the prairie. Guest host Jack Brighton talks with Kanfer about his work, his favorite places to take pictures in east central Illinois and about how to get the best pictures you can of whatever you’re photographing this summer. Jack also talks with Kanfer about his gallery which has been a fixture on Neil Street in Champaign for nearly 30 years. Brian Johnson, a professor in the University of Illinois College of Media, also joins us. He’s been teaching students to take professional-quality photos for more than two decades and has lots of advice to share about taking meaningful vacation photos.
Whether you’ve got a point and shoot camera, a cell phone or a high quality Nikon, we welcome your questions about photography.

10 am Wednesday, July 17, on Focus: Find out how yoga compares to more traditional exercise, and learn about different styles of yoga.
Yoga has been around for thousands of years and is becoming more and more popular as a form of exercise in the West. Many people, however, will say that yoga is much more than exercise or that it can’t be classified as exercise at all. Guest host Lindsey Moon talks with incoming professor of kinesiology at Wayne State University Neha Goethe about a study she recently completed at the University of Illinois comparing yoga practice to more traditional exercise. Mare Payne, who was a part of Neha’s study, also joins us.
Then during the second half of the show, we’ll hear from Jennifer Allen, a yoga instructor from Champaign. She’ll tell more about the different styles of yoga and why some people strongly oppose the idea that yoga is a form of exercise. She also tells us more about yoga’s history, and Lindsey talks with her about how yoga in the West is different from its more traditional forms.
The Urbana Park District is sponsoring free yoga classes in Meadowbrook Park on Saturdays this summer. Find more information about those classes.
