    Rick Steves Special [#106H] European Christmas From manger scenes and mistletoe to wintry wonderlands, this program celebrates the Christmas season throughout the European continent. Rick visits friends and families in England, France, Norway, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy to reveal their customs and practices of the holiday season.
    He begins his travels in England, where the Christmas pudding is the real centerpiece of a traditional English holiday meal. In Paris, the Eiffel Tower heralds the season with its red, twinkling lights. In the countryside of Tuscany, villagers stack neat pyramids of wood for great bonfires. The lighting of the fires is a signal to villagers - dressed as shepherds - to come and sing old carols. This special offers a colorful, musical celebration of Christmas across Europe where viewers will learn about customs from "the old countries," hear local choirs, and discover holiday family traditions.

    Our Zoo [#102H] With the initial plans for the zoo drawn up, George turns his mind to growing the stock at Oakfield, which brings him face-to-face with two Himalayan black bears hiding out in a cave in Matlock. The male is extremely protective of the malnourished female and George - along with Lizzie's brother, Billy - is in a quandary about what to do. Back at Oakfield, Lizzie and the family continue the onerous work of putting the zoo together. However, Mew has shut herself away in protest and Lucy is less than enthusiastic about Lizzie taking the reins. With George away, Lizzie is forced to interpret his muddled plans in order to fill in official forms that need to be submitted to the council imminently. Meanwhile, Reverend Webb is determined to find out exactly what's going on at Oakfield and he's horrified to learn from Camilla, who's intercepted a private telegram, that the family are building an attraction for visitors to flock to. While George and Billy have a job on their hands rescuing the bears, particularly as the female bear is sick and the male won't leave her side, Councillor Tipping of Chester Council receives a call from Webb. Now that they know what the Mottersheads are planning, the zoo must be stopped. duration 54:36   STEREO TVG

    Secrets of Chatsworth Over five centuries, Chatsworth Estate has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family and is presently the home of the current 12th Duke of Devonshire and his family. We discover the stories throughout its 500 years that have shaped the history of Chatsworth into the acclaimed and distinguished house it has become today. So rich are some of the tales, they have even caught the imagination of Hollywood, The Duchess was the story of Lady Georgiana Spencer and her ill-fated marriage to the the 5th Duke, although their marriage was a great dynastic match, their personalities were entirely unsuited and they lived together with Lady Elizabeth Foster, Georgiana's close friend in a menage a trois.
    Chatsworth even links to American President, John F Kennedy who came to visit his sister, Kathleen Kennedy after she was tragically killed in a plane crash and buried in the grounds of Chatsworth. Kathleen was married to Billy Cavendish, son and heir to the 10th Duke of Devonshire. So how does it really feel to live and work in such an opulent house with so much colorful history? We take a look behind the doors of the house and stroll around the vast gardens and estate, talking to the Duke and Duchess to find out the real truth behind Chatsworth.

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1611H] On The Road In America, Part 2 In the second program, "Pack Up Your Troubles," Burt continues the story.

The labor force demands of WWI accelerated the move from farms to cities and initiated the Great Migration out of the South. The Depression slowed migration as worried people stayed close to home.

    The Campaign Heartbreaking and inspiring, this program is a human drama that follows ordinary people compelled by a passionate belief in equality to go far beyond their everyday selves. They're caught in the political firestorm of one of the largest social issue campaign the US has ever seen: the campaign to defeat California's Proposition 8 and to defend same-sex marriage.
    With exclusive access to the statewide headquarters of "No on 8," the story tracks Holli, Claudia, Richard, Anne, and Alison through emotional battles to protect their families, their rights, and their dignity. They learn that growing social acceptance does not always translate into votes, but that participating in the political process transforms them - win or lose. The passage of Prop 8 was a great shock to many, not only in California but across the nation and around the world. Growing social acceptance and isolated legal gains have produced a sense that increased LGBT legal protection is imminent. Yet at the time of the 2008 election, 31 states had voted against gay marriage at the ballot box.
    The story is much more complicated than a "Yes" or "No" vote. By reaching beyond the issues to follow strong characters, the film holds universal themes and appeal: the mixed emotions of family relationships, self-empowerment through activism, and the struggle in deciding how much of oneself to sacrifice for the cause. Characters drive the story, from their initial confidence that Prop 8 will be defeated, through their frustrating experiences of unfavorable polling numbers, to their heartbreaking 52% to 48% defeat on election night, and the turmoil beyond. We see the lives of real people in the balance, not polished representatives.
