Shatner's Iowa sci-fi film is really a reality series

March 29, 2005

Tuesday, March 29


8 p.m. on PBS

"Nova"

The Dec. 26 tsunami caused so much destruction in South Asia that it took weeks to assess the damage and loss of life. This episode, "The Wave That Shook the World," aims to explain both the cause and effects of the disaster. Followed at 10 p.m. by a documentary about the Indonesian volcano Krakatoa, which caused a tsunami in 1883.

9 p.m. on Spike TV

"Invasion Iowa"

William Shatner pretended to be making a low-budget sci-fi film in the very small town of Riverside, Iowa, but the real goal was this "reality" series. Why Riverside? As "Star Trek" fans know, it's the birthplace of Shatner's character Capt. Kirk (on March 22, 2228). Continues at the same time through Friday.
