    Masterpiece Mystery! [#4409H] Sherlock, Series III: The Empty Hearse Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) is not dead: this much we know. But how did he survive his leap off the roof of St. Bart's Hospital? There are many theories, but none of them matter to John Watson (Martin Freeman), who is less concerned with how his friend survived than with why his friend didn't let him know he was alive. Sherlock returns to London with an assignment (stop an impending terrorist attack on the city) and a plan (restore the old Sherlock-John partnership). When he finds that his brother Mycroft's warning that John has moved on with his life is true, will Sherlock have to accept a new reality and a new partner? duration 1:28:53   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Masterpiece Mystery! [#4410H] Sherlock, Series III: The Sign of Three Who leaves a wedding early? In The Sign of Three, it's the best man, namely Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch).

Too bad that Sherlock is unable to focus his tremendous powers of deduction on the murder that's hatching right under his nose, but then the responsibilities of a best man are more diabolically exhausting than preventing a very clever killing. duration 1:28:30   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    * Japanese Tea House - Gilroy, California--How did an authentic Japanese tea house become part of the famed San Francisco World's Fair in a time just preceding World War II?

How did the tea house make its way to America in the first place, and who was behind its inclusion in the fair?
    * Poems -San Francisco, California--In the first half of the 20th century, nearly 250,000 Chinese immigrants attempted to enter the United States. Because of discrimination against Chinese, and laws meant to impede their passage, most were detained and interrogated on Angel Island, America's west coast immigration center. The experience of these immigrants is documented in hundreds of poems that have been carved into the walls of the Angel Island detention center. Many of these have been translated, but little is known about the authors. Kathleen Wong, a second-generation Chinese-American, believes that her grandfather and great-grandfather spent time on the island and that her great-grandfather committed suicide there. She knows little about her ancestors' experience on Angel Island and their possible connection with the poems. History Detectives will investigate the story of her family's passage to the United States to find out if any of the poems were written by her ancestors.
