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.

Passage Through Chile's Tierra Del Fuego Around Cape Horn (Episode #613H)
KQED 9: Sat, Nov 3, 2012 -- 8:00 AM
The spirit of Magellan, the worldwide traveler, is alive and well as Joseph circumnavigates the tip of South America on an expedition passenger ship. He sails through Tierra del Fuego and around Cape Horn on Travelscope's latest Chilean adventure. As the ship follows Darwin's watery trail, he travels into the Beagle Channel and through "Glaciers Avenue" where the majestic Spain, Romanche, Germany, Italy, France and Holland glaciers seem close enough to touch. Along the way he encounters Elephant Seals, Magellanic Penguins and sea birds aplenty. A highlight of the show is a stop on Isla Del Horno - Horn Island - where Joseph stands at the end of the Americas and visits the memorial to the ancient mariners who lost their lives attempting to make the Cape Horn passage.
