Bahian Reconcavo of Brazil: Quilombos, Candomble, and the Mata Atlantica (Episode #302H)

KQED Life: Fri, Jan 30, 2015 -- 11:30 PM

The region known as Reconcavo supports a distinct culture and heritage. Over the centuries, slaves escaped their owners and founded their own towns. They, along with other colonists, shaped the local society and exploited its tropical riches. Recently, a local company took on the challenge of preserving and restoring the once-great Atlantic Forest, the Mata Atlantica.

Abc Islands: The Dutch Legacy in the Caribbean (Episode #301H)

KQED Life: Fri, Jan 23, 2015 -- 11:30 PM

The last vestiges of the once-mighty Dutch empire live on in the Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. David visits Curacao, now independent, and wanders the streets of Willemstad, its capital city. In its colonial buildings, he finds hints of a past glory made possible by the slave trade. In Bonaire, still a colony, he dons Scuba gear to mingle with its incomparable marine life. Then, he witnesses the extraction of tons of salt from Bonaire's tidal flats. Finally, David treks into a national park home to dense groves of tall cacti, hordes of lizards and tranquil flamingos.

Whistles in the Mist: Whistled Speech In Oaxaca (Episode #210H)

KQED Life: Fri, Jan 16, 2015 -- 11:30 PM

The Chinantecan people of mountainous northern Oaxaca, Mexico, speak by whistling as well as by talking. We visit their isolated community and see for ourselves how they use whistled speech to supplement-and sometimes replace-spoken speech.

Winter in the Caldera: January in the Yellowstone Hotspot (Episode #209H)

KQED Life: Fri, Jan 9, 2015 -- 11:30 PM

Yellowstone National Park is our first, and one of the most visited national parks. In winter, access is limited, and visitors and wildlife are challenged by deep snow and fierce cold. The frozen landscape is utterly transformed from summertime, and its explosive potential is even more evident.
