July Schedule Highlights

June 30, 2011

KAKM, Channel 7 television is pleased to continue bringing quality programming to your home. In this month’s primetime lineup you will find new programming as well as some of your old favorites.

A Capitol Fourth 2011: America’s biggest and brightest birthday party, A CAPITOL FOURTH features unrivaled musical performances by some of the country’s best known and award-winning musicians in performance with the National Symphony Orchestra live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

Jean-Michael Cousteau: Sea Ghosts: There are places on this planet where it’s a marvel that anything survives. In the cold Arctic waters of the far north, the sea is alive with sound. The canaries of the sea are singing.

They’re beluga whales, named from the Russian word for “white ones.” They’re an evolutionary surprise – a warm-blooded mammal in a numbingly cold sea. Resembling curious ghosts, these intelligent mammals use one of the most complex sonars of any animal.

Secrets of the Dead: Aztec Massacre: Throughout recent times, historians have believed that when the Spanish conquistadors arrived in Aztec territory in the 15th century, they were welcomed as returning light-skinned gods by the Aztecs, who put up little resistance to their conquest. But now, a new find outside of Mexico City is turning history on its head. The discovery: more than 400 bodies, many of which show signs of having been mutilated and even eaten.

This program paints a new picture of the violent relations between the Aztecs and the conquistadors and rewrites much of what we thought we knew about the Aztec civilization.
