8:00pm Nova: Car of the Future PBS/KCET - Tom and Ray Magliozzi of NPR's ``Car Talk'' examine new technologies and ideas for transportation, including alternative fuel sources. Earth Day!

8:30pm The Major and the Minor Comedy TCM - (1942) A military-school major (Ray Milland) eyes blonde hottie Ginger Rogers posing as a 12-year-old on a train. Not Earth Day (but a good movie just the same).
