12:00 amIngrid Bergman Remembered Ingrid Bergman - her name conjures up beauty, grace, talent and style. One of the greatest actresses of our time, she is best remembered for a very natural and vulnerable persona which was so genuine and alluring. Her cinematic contributions as one of Hollywood's greatest stars produced such movie classics as Casablanca, Gaslight, and Anastasia. But Ingrid's story goes deeper than the triumphs of her movie career. Ingrid's life took sharp turns and led her in directions that she never expected.
Plagued by the scandal of her love affair and marriage to Italian film director Roberto Rossellini, Ingrid's seeming abandonment of her husband Peter Lindstrom and daughter Pia was unexplainable. The turbulent years that followed included Ingrid's total withdrawal from Hollywood and America. Though she still made movies in Italy with Roberto, her career seemed over. Ingrid's time in Italy was pained by her separation from Pia but also joyful in the birth of her three other children, Robertino, Ingrid and Isabella. Having disappeared from the public eye for over seven years, Ingrid had the courage and conviction to carry her through when she reemerged in the movie Anastasia, which sparked her triumphant return to America.
This program is a loving retrospective of a woman who lived a remarkable life. Appearing for the first time together, Ingrid's daughters Pia Lindstrom and Isabella Rossellini, the model and actress, take a personal look back at the life of their mother. Seen from the perspective of her children, this profile of Ingrid Bergman goes beyond the acting career and tells the story of her life from her childhood in Sweden to her premature death at age 67 from breast cancer. Replete with a wonderful assortment of rare and never-before-seen photographs and home movies, the program is rounded out by film clips and newsreels which assemble beautifully around Ms. Lindstrom's narration. duration 50:09 TVG
1:00 amRick Steves' Europe [#309H] French Riviera: Uniquely Chic A longtime favorite escape of Europe's elite, the Riviera coastline still sparkles with yachts. We follow in the footsteps of 19th century aristocrats along Monaco's harbor and Nice's promenade des Anglais. Then we visit the picturesque, artist hangouts of Chagall, Matisse and Picasso. duration 27:46 STEREO TVG
1:41 amRick Steves' Europe [#102] Paris: Grand & Intimate After marveling at masterpieces in the Louvre and strolling the Champs-Elysees, we explore a delightful Parisian neighborhood, where we meet an organist, drop by a butcher shop, design our own perfume, then cruise the Seine. duration 28:00 STEREO TVG
2:23 amRick Steves' Europe [#214H] Switzerland's Jungfrau Region: Best of the Alps If Heidi is alive, she's in this sky-high corner of the Swiss Alps, with cows on breathtaking ridges. After settling into a traditional village where locals scythe hay by hand, we hike, bike, and parasail. We blast an alphorn, get sprayed by waterfalls raging deep inside a mountain, and munch muesli for breakfast at 10,000 feet. For a finale, we ride Europe's highest lift up the mighty Jungfrau for hot cocoa, glacier sledding, and oh-wow views. duration 27:46 STEREO TVG
3:09 amRick Steves' Europe [#205] Cinque Terre: Italy's Hidden Riviera Italy's Hidden Riviera In these five idyllic port towns, we sample village life: fishing for anchovies at midnight, savoring the best pesto, picking grapes, and cheering cliff divers as we hike the "walkway of love." Each pastel town is a delight, but my favorite is Vernazza - where Giovanni makes pasta and Granelli sells porcini mushrooms at the tiny street market. We sidetrip to Carrara's quarries where Michelangelo selected his marble, then return to Vernazza to stroll the only street with the entire village as the sun sets. duration 27:46 STEREO TVG

No one explains the mechanics of the body better than Dr. Michael Roizen. Most of us believe that with age comes a slow and steady decline of our minds, our eyes, our hearing, our joints, our arteries, our libido and our overall quality of life.

Dr. Michael Roizen provides an easy action plan to combat life's 'major agers,' those internal and external forces that cause the most wear and tear on your body. < br />Family genes are blamed for just about everything from stress, to illness, to the size of our waistlines. It's true, you can't change your genes, but you can control whether certain genes are turned on or off. Recent studies show that your body has the ability to repair any organ in the body. With the help of a male and female specimen from The Bodies Exhibition, Dr. Michael Roizen visually identifies and explains the body's organs, arteries and nerves affecting the aging process, and gives tips on how to increase your memory bank and decrease your risk of Alzheimer's disease.
