TV highlights Feb. 23-29 

SMALL SPACE, BIG STYLE
2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25
HGTV (Comcast Ch. 49)

Unless you invested early in Wal-Mart stock or had a grandpappy who did, chances are the place you live isn’t quite as expansive as you might like it. Still, you don’t have to live in silent hate of your crackerbox apartment/house: Do something about it! Here, from HGTV, comes the series for anyone who has ever wished for a little more style elbow room — a tour of homes that show what can be accomplished both in terms of storage and style in under 1,000 square feet. Tag along this week as the show visits tiny but innovative condos, lofts, apartments and houses in New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco.

TIME OF FEAR
7:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb 27
AETN (Comcast Ch. 3, Broadcast Ch. 2)

It wasn’t our country’s finest hour. During World War II, thousands of Japanese-Americans were rounded up on the West Coast and shipped to rural relocation camps on the pretext of fighting the largely phantom struggle against home-front sabotage and spying. Eventually, more than 110,000 Americans were taken away from their homes and communities for nothing more than their appearance. For many of them, it meant financial ruin, with most losing their homes and businesses. PBS focuses on two of these camps, both located in Arkansas. This thorough examination of life inside the wire — and what it did to those outside — makes for powerful and compelling viewing.

ENGINEERING DISASTERS: NEW ORLEANS
10 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28
The History Channel (Comcast Ch. 70)

When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans last August, officials there had long known that a major hurricane might bring the worst: “filling the bowl,” wherein low-lying sections of the city would be flooded. What they might not have been prepared for, however, was the way it happened: numerous breaks in the city’s 200-year-old network of levees allowed water to gush in, quickly overwhelming an aged pumping system that had kept the city dry. Here, a group of engineers use science to try to find out just what happened in New Orleans, and why it took a tragedy that eventually claimed more than 1,000 lives to get attention.
