In 2011, a group of amateur historians made an incredible archaeological find: the bones of King Richard III, hunchbacked, with an arrow through the spine. Richard is considered the most evil king to have ruled England - and a fearsome warrior as well, despite the extreme curvature of his spine. Now, scientists are testing the bones to find out more about the king and also conducting experiments to determine whether Richard could have fought so ferociously in battle with such a severe deformity.

On Saturday, in recognition of the return of American Graduate Day, NewsHour Weekend explores concerns about a fundamental educational issue in the state of Florida. Recently, the state mandated the 300 lowest-performing schools add an extra hour of reading instruction each day, the first in the country to implement such changes. While polices like this have improved reading scores in the past, not everyone is convinced the extra hour is the right solution. NewsHour Special Correspondent Alison Stewart reports on the shift from Orlando. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend travels to Kansas to examine one of the biggest surprises of the 2014 midterm elections.

NewsHour's Jeff Greenfield explores whether the candidates may be too conservative for their historically red state. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Western New England?s agricultural legacy has persisted for more than three centuries, through waves of migration, technological innovation and economic uncertainty. In many ways it is the birthplace for American agriculture that exists to this day. The Connecticut River Valley is home to New England?s longest river, a remnant of the last Ice Age. But the receding glaciers also left behind another gift?some of the richest soil on Earth. This fertile valley has attracted Native Americans and settlers since the early 1600s.

A frail, asthmatic young Theodore Roosevelt transforms himself into a vigorous champion of the strenuous life, loses one great love and finds another, leads men into battle and then rises like a rocket to become the youngest president in American history at 42. Meanwhile, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, brought up as the pampered only child of adoring parents, follows his older cousin's career with worshipful fascination and begins to think he might one day follow in his footsteps.
Part 2 | In the Arena (1901-1910) — The Rooseveltshttp://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365313130/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false/episodes/get/22927 http://wgby.org/episode/22927 The Roosevelts: Part 2 | In the Arena (1901-1910) /episode-player/22927
Murder brings Theodore Roosevelt to the presidency, but in the seven years that follow, he transforms the office and makes himself perhaps the best-loved of all the men who ever lived in the White House - battling corporate greed and building the Panama Canal, preserving American wilderness, carrying the message of American might around the world. FDR courts and weds Eleanor Roosevelt, the shy orphaned daughter of Theodore's alcoholic brother, Elliott. Together, they begin a family.
Part 3 | The Fire of Life (1910-1919) — The Rooseveltshttp://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365313145/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false/episodes/get/22954 http://wgby.org/episode/22954 The Roosevelts: Part 3 | The Fire of Life (1910-1919) /episode-player/22954
Theodore Roosevelt leads a Progressive crusade that splits his own party, undertakes a deadly expedition into the South American jungle, campaigns for American entry into World War I - and pays a terrible personal price. Franklin masters wartime Washington as Assistant Secretary of the Navy, while Eleanor finds personal salvation in war work. Her discovery of Franklin's romance with another woman transforms their marriage into a largely political partnership. TR's death at 60 is almost universally mourned, but provides Franklin with a golden opportunity.
Part 4 | The Storm (1920-1933) — The Rooseveltshttp://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365313167/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false/episodes/get/22985 http://wgby.org/episode/22985 The Roosevelts: Part 4 | The Storm (1920-1933) /episode-player/22985
Franklin Roosevelt runs for vice president in 1920 and seems assured of a still brighter future until polio devastates him the following summer. He spends seven years struggling without success to walk again, while Eleanor builds a personal and political life of her own. FDR returns to politics in 1928 and, as governor of New York, acts with such vigor and imagination during the first years of the Great Depression that the Democrats turn to him as their presidential nominee in 1932.
Part 5 | The Rising Road (1933-1939) — The Rooseveltshttp://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365313172/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false/episodes/get/23024 http://wgby.org/episode/23024 The Roosevelts: Part 5 | The Rising Road (1933-1939) /episode-player/23024
FDR brings the same optimism and energy to the White House that his cousin Theodore displayed. Aimed at ending the Depression, his sweeping New Deal restores the people's self-confidence and transforms the relationship between them and their government. Eleanor rejects the traditional role of first lady, becomes her husband's liberal conscience and a sometimes controversial political force in her own right. As the decade ends, FDR faces two grave questions: whether to run for an unprecedented third term and how to deal with the rise of Hitler.
