Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge Previous Broadcasts

The Kingdom of Bhutan (Episode #210)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 27, 2014 -- 3:00 PM

Known as the Land of the Thunder Dragon, Bhutan has survived in isolation for more than a thousand years. As this enlightened Buddhist kingdom greets the 21st century, its greatest challenge is to preserve its soul. In episode ten, Art Wolfe finds a photographer's nirvana of mountainside monasteries, sacred festivals and chanting monks in an environmentally and spiritually progressive nation.

Mexico: Baja (Episode #209)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 20, 2014 -- 3:00 PM

Both an ocean oasis and isolated desert, the northern part of the narrow Baja peninsula is home to a surprising variety of plant and animal life. In episode nine, after a voyage on the Sea of Cortez in search of migrating gray whales, Art Wolfe ventures inland through the unforgiving Catavina desert and discovers a photographer's playground of light and magical landscapes.

Wild Asia: Nepal and India (Episode #208)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 13, 2014 -- 3:00 PM

Beyond India and Nepal's crowded cities lie precious remnants of wild Asia where tigers, rhino and bear still roam. In episode eight, Art Wolfe travels by elephant deep into Kipling country in search of the last of the planet's Bengal tigers. Here, through the lens of his camera, he captures images of mahouts handlers bound to the elephants they've cared for from childhood as they bathe and tend to their animals. In Nepal, Art encounters exotic wildlife including rare Asian rhinos, elusive sloth bears and primeval Gharial crocodiles.

New Zealand (Episode #207)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 6, 2014 -- 3:00 PM

New Zealand's extreme beauty is central to its identity. Here indigenous Maori people see themselves as guardians of the land. In episode seven, Art Wolfe captures portraits of contemporary Maori artists who wear their stories on their faces in the form of sacred tattoos, and convey their sense of stewardship through their art. Then he heads off to the wild South Island to explore the natural history of this pristine and beautifully preserved island nation.

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
