    Real Rail Adventures: Switzerland This program showcases the construction marvels and visual splendors of the Swiss rail system, where majesty and machine meet.

Host Jeff Wilson, a regular on several home-improvement series, stops in Swiss cities and towns along the way to take in the sights, learn about local history and traditions, and share up-to-date travel advice to help viewers create authentic, memorable rail adventures of their own. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Harvesting The High Plains In 1933, as the United States began to recover from the Great Depression, farmers from the panhandle of Texas to western Nebraska faced a greater, and much less forgiving foe - nature. The Dustbowl turned the Great Plains, America's breadbasket, into a a virtual desert. This documentary tells the rags-to-riches story of Ray Garvey and John Kriss, who made large-scale wheat farming a success under these adverse conditions. This compelling documentary recounts the men's decisions, failures and triumphs as it traces the rise of agriculture in the Midwest and on the Great Plains. Like farmers today, Garvey and Kriss faced numerous challenges, including inclement weather, mid-season policy changes, increasing tax rates and war-time rationing, all while trying to feed the country and the world. The film draws from Craig Miner's book of the same name, extensive correspondence between Kriss and Garvey (written over a period of 14 years), and interviews with family members and former employees, farmers, contractors and associates. duration 57:07   SRND51 TVG
