Screen Gems: TV the week of August 30

9/11: Science and Conspiracy (9 p.m. Monday, National Geographic Channel) -- With a combination of 911conspiracy forensic science and investigative reporting, this excellent documentary rips to shreds the theories of the so-called 9/11 truthers, who believe the attacks were really carried out by the U.S. government.

Celia the Queen (8 p.m. Wednesday, WPBT-PBS 2) -- A look at the music and sociopolitical significance of salsa royalty Celia Cruz, whose compelling rhythms not only set Cuba to dancing but broke down some of its racial barriers as well.

The Mouse That Roared (7:30 a.m. Saturday, Turner Classic Movies) -- Peter Sellers and Jean Seberg star in this hilarious 1959 comedy about a broke, flyspeck country that declares war on the United States in order to lose and then collect a ton of foreign aid. Only something goes wrong. . . .

Note: Days and times for PBS shows are for the Miami area, and may differ elsewhere.
