NOW PLAYING:

WXDU News, Sports, and Information Sunday (3/1) 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Tune in at 6:00 tonight for the Endless Frontier. Tonight's show explores new research that suggests that biological sex exists on a spectrum rather than as a set of binary options. Then we'll take a look at DNA's ability to store information and the structural similarities between the brain regions responsible for movement coordination in humans and lampreys.

At 6:30, WXDU News has an episode of Spectrum, Deutsche Welle's news magazine program, called "the Good and the Bad." DW's reporters examine the impacts of India's recent swine flu outbreak and how declining Ebola infection rates hamper vaccine development. This episode also delves into the effort to create a safer Internet, the move to get kids more involved with computer programming in Europe and music's growing medical application in Australia.

WXDU Sports is up next at 7:00. Martin Kang will have a recap of the Duke women's basketball team's final regular season game against UNC today, plus post-game comments from both sides. He'll also cover the Duke men's season and the NCCU's men's and women's squads, and have an update of Duke's men's and women's recent lacrosse performances. After the college updates, we'll share a report from Homelands Productions' World Views called "Me and Hank," which details the career of Hank Aaron and the racial tensions surrounding his success, and have producer Sarah Boothroyd's take on luck at the racetrack in a piece called "Chance."
