But following a catastrophic earthquake and a slump in its desert trade routes, Petra's unique culture faded and was lost to most of the world for nearly 1,000 years. Now, in a daring experiment, an archaeologist and sculptors team up to carve an iconic temple-tomb to find out how the ancient people of Petra built their city of stone.

Working with chef Kevin Ashworth from Ed's restaurant Milkwood, the chefs experiment with farmers market finds, allowing a view into how a new dish is created. Ed then delves into Louisville's fried chicken scene and cooks up his own version with North Carolina chef Ashley Christensen. Finally, honoring the woman who kept him in Louisville in the first place, Ed uses the city's German heritage as inspiration to cook hasenpfeffer for his wife, Dianne.

Then it's off to Owensboro with homegrown chef Ouita Michel to make a dish featuring two more local ingredients: smoke and spoonbill caviar. Yes, caviar from Kentucky.

Forgotten Ellis Island Visit the abandoned immigrant hospital on Ellis Island.

In the era before antibiotics, tens of thousands of immigrant patients were separated from family, detained in the hospital and healed from illness before becoming citizens.

But, as "Fallen City" reveals, the journey from the ruined old city of Beichuan to the new Beichuan nearby is long and heartbreaking for the survivors. Three families struggle with loss — most strikingly the loss of children and grandchildren — and feelings of loneliness, fear and dislocation that no amount of propaganda can disguise. First-time director Qi Zhao offers an intimate look at a country torn between tradition and modernity.

Mind of a Chef; The Latitude In many ways, cooking with southern ingredients feels like second nature to Ed, and for good reason — South Korea and Kentucky both lie along the same latitudinal line. The 38th parallel also spans southern Spain and Italy, San Francisco and generous portions of the American South. A similar terroir translates into some interesting culture crossings for chefs like Ed, as well as State Bird Provisions' Stuart Brioza, who prepares a salad inspired by San Francisco and the Mediterranean, and Hog & Hominy's Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman, who cook Memphis favorites imbued with Calabrian family traditions. Ed collaborates with Andy Ricker on a pancake that ties together the influences of China, Korea and Kentucky.

He tries his hand at cooking alternative meats (like alligator); enjoys a recipe that has stood the test of time, Maw Maw's Ravioli from Hog & Hominy's Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman; and creates a quickly disappearing dim sum dish with Stuart Brioza, as he looks toward the future of the food chain.

Shakespeare Lost, Shakespeare Found SHAKESPEARE LOST, SHAKESPEARE FOUND tells the fascinating story behind the bold 20-year project by world-renowned Shakespeare scholar Dr. Gary Taylor to recreate The History of Cardenio (1613), a lost work written by William Shakespeare and his early collaborator, John Fletcher. Despite its impressive pedigree, The History of Cardenio remains shrouded in mystery because the 400-year-old play did not survive the ravages of time. Dr. Taylor resurrected the original manuscript by de-constructing Double Falsehood, Lewis Theobald's 1727 adaptation of The History of Cardenio. This process included painstaking research of centuries-old texts and cutting-edge computer microanalysis of each author's writing styles. The documentary culminates with the first full-scale production of the work at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus, where academics from around the world comment on the play's authenticity, casting choices, plot additions and controversial ending.

But for many ordinary Americans vaccines have become controversial. Young parents are concerned at the sheer number of shots and follow alternative vaccination schedules. Other parents are choosing not to vaccinate their kids at all. And some advocacy groups view vaccines as responsible for alarming rises in certain disorders, including ADHD and autism. This is the vaccine war: On one side sits scientific medicine and the public health establishment; on the other, a populist coalition of parents, celebrities, politicians and activists. It's a war that increasingly takes place on the Internet with both sides using the latest social media tools to win the hearts and minds of the public.
