"Connect" has an all-star line-up in March, beginning with a trip through the Grand Canyon and a walk through time. Karl Karlstrom and Laura Crossey helped design the Trail of Time at the Grand Canyon, which represents 4.5 billion years of earth's geologic history where each step on the trail represents one million years. Closer to home, Karlstrom and Crossey compare the geologic stories of the Rio Grande Rift formation, which is three times larger than the canyon.

Connect airs Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m. on New Mexico PBS 5.1 and Sunday, March 25 at 5 p.m. on New Mexico PBS 9.1. 

Also, here a personal story of the healing power of traditional medicine and curanderismo. Eliseo "Cheo" Torres  and Antoinette "Tonita" Gonzales, traditional healer and curandera, discuss the Traditional Healers without Borders program. As an alternative to modern medicine, they share various traditional and holistic health techniques. Also, Harjit Ahluwalia explains the current solar cycle.
