World War I Naval Warfare airs twice on Saturday, May 12, first at 9:15 a.m. and again at 3:00 a.m which is technically Sunday morning.  The talk is given by Professor Stanley Carpenter of the Naval War College.

-On Sunday we have American Artifacts:  World War I Soldiers and Art in the Trenches.  This airs first at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 13, and repeats at 9:00 p.m.  This is a look at stone carvings left behind in bunkers and trenches by soldiers and recently rediscovered.
