Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope
This series scales new heights of adventure, natural splendor and cultural richness. Host Joseph Rosendo journeys from the California coast to the islands of Hong Kong and to Chile's Tierra del Fuego. Along the way, he encounters the heights of natural beauty in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia, celebrates Christmas in Switzerland and circumnavigates the tip of South America. The TravelScope series' hallmark remains the rich cultural interchanges between Joseph and the local population. He joins the parade of medieval guilds during Zurich's spring festival, shares devotions with a holy man in a rock-hewn church in Lalibela, Ethiopia and explores the mysteries behind the stone figures on Easter Island.

On his Hong Kong adventure, Joseph takes in the luxury hotels, designer shops and Michelin-star restaurants of Asia's World City, but also explores its local neighborhoods, colorful markets, places of natural beauty and meets the people who retain their connections to their customs and traditions. He discovers that while Hong Kong is a vibrant international town, it is the people and their cultural heritage that keeps him coming back for more.
