For a city our size, Little Rock has a lot of good places to chow down. Popular Food Network host Rachael Ray learned that when she brought cameras from her show “Tasty Travels” to town back during the winter. Now, after months of waiting, you can finally see Ray’s culinary verdict on some of the best restaurants in town. Here, Ray samples some of Little Rock’s best cuisine, including fare from Cafe 42 in the Clinton Presidential Center, Loca Luna, The Faded Rose, and Sticky Fingerz Rock ’n’ Roll Chicken Shack in the River Market district.

n Without exception, no other animal on earth has contributed more to the development of human culture than the horse. First domesticated around 10,000 years ago, the horse allowed humans to, for the first time, quickly chase down and kill the animals they used for food, rather than tedious stalking or lying in wait. Too, though their use as transportation has waned since the rise of the internal combustion engine, horses allowed pre-automobile humans to range further abroad, allowing for everything from the opening of the American West to the spread the human species to the far corners of the globe. In this special, filmmakers with “Nature” go looking for the origins of the domesticated horse, and try to determine why humans have forged such an intimate bond with this most helpful of creatures.

Since a woman’s right to choose was ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court in 1973’s Roe v. Wade decision, the Right to Life movement has waged continuous war against legalized abortion — in the courts, on the streets, and particularly on the floors of state legislatures. The result has been a slow, methodical chipping away of the legal foundations of the right to choose, along with a campaign of intimidation and harassment that has left many doctors afraid to provide abortions. In many cases, this has meant that the number of abortion providers in each state have dwindled to single digits. Here, a documentary crew with the PBS show “Frontline” pays a visit to the last abortion clinic still operating in Mississippi. Through the lens of the day-to-day struggle to keep abortion services available to the women there, filmmakers discover some surprising things about America as a whole.
