SUNDAY Nature (PBS, 8-9 p.m.): ``Supersense: Sight and Sound'': First of a two-parter that tries to take in the world through the senses of animals - a tricky concept demanding novel camera and sound techniques. The result is an unusual empathy for the way bees see, elephants hear, and other creatures experience life. MONDAY Forgotten Prisoners: The Amnesty Files (TNT, 8-9:32 p.m.): This shocking drama is based on the files - and had the cooperation - of Amnesty International, the Nobel Prize-winning movement dedicated to making governments observe human rights. In countries where those rights are denied, torture is not uncommon, as revealed in the grim story of a man on his first Amnesty mission. Twenty Years of Wall $treet Week (PBS, 10 -11 p.m.): It offers nothing but laid-back panelists talking money, but this series has informed and entertained viewers for two decades, thanks mainly to the light touch of host Louis Rukeyser. Here he reprises some of the show's finest moments, including clips of John Templeton, Peter Lynch, and other Wall Street heavyweights.

TUESDAY Antarctica: Frozen Ambitions (PBS, 10-11 p.m.): It's not only the coldest place on earth but the only one unclaimed - so far - by any nation as its own. As this documentary reveals, that may change if countries start exploring for minerals. Conservationists want to make Antarctica a ``world wilderness park,'' but a political struggle is brewing. Please check local listings for all programs, especially on PBS.
