THURSDAY MOONWALK (A&E Cable, 10:30 p.m.-2 a.m.): Second of three A&E programs that are airing NBC News's coverage of the Apollo 11 moon landing, timing it to run 20 years to the minute after it was orginally seen. (Please check local listing for other anniversary coverage.) SATURDAY Make Yourself at Home (PBS, 3:30-4 p.m.): ``This Old House'' may spend weeks on one major project, but ``At Home'' moves from one subject to another in a single program as it roams inside the house and out, dispensing practical information. In its second-season opener, the all-purpose how-to show teaches kids how to make bread, offers clues on selecting lumber, and even gets into flower arranging. MONDAY Splashdown (A&E Cable, 1:30-3:30 p.m.): Third and last of the A&E programs re-airing Apollo 11 moon mission coverage 20 years after. American Masters (PBS, 9-10 p.m.): Clips and lots of interviews with artists like Whitney Houston, Eric Clapton, and others create a portrait of ``Aretha Franklin: The Queen of Soul,'' in the second of three `American Masters' shows focusing on jazz greats. TUESDAY The Struggle for Democracy (PBS, 9-10 p.m.): In ``Chiefs and Strongmen,'' host Patrick Watson travels up a Nigerian river with a tribal chief, and also interviews Libya's Muammar Qaddafi, who says there is, too, democracy in his country, despite the absence of political parties and maybe even government in the usual sense. Please check local listings for all programs, especially on PBS.
