On Tuesday at 9, PBS stations air the regular installment of the series, this one about the effort to save the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa.

If you're interested in the continuing saga of the Mallory-Irvine ascent, catch a 1998 installment ("Everest -- The Death Zone") Tuesday at 8 on WETA. Then tune in Wednesday at 8 for "Everest: The Mystery of Mallory and Irvine," tracing George Leigh Mallory and Andrew Irvine's 1924 attempt to become the first to climb the world's tallest mountain. The two British climbers were seen less than 1,000 feet from the top before clouds rolled in, then never seen again. Mallory's body was found 75 years later when an expedition ascended Everest. That expedition will be the "NOVA" topic of Jan. 18, 2000. In 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay claimed the title as the first to scale the mountain.
