    Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose "Morocco: Quest for the Kasbah" For centuries, Kasbahs - the walled residential quarters around Moroccan cities - served as a refuge for African, Arab, Jewish and European traders, pirates and holy men traveling on ancient caravan routes. Today, these Kasbahs exemplify Morocco's determination to guard and preserve their rich multiculturalism. In his latest Adventures With Purpose special, adventurer Richard Bangs travels to Morocco on a quest for the modern-day equivalent of the Kasbah. Bangs begins his journey in Marrakesh, where he dips down to the seashore, travels over the mountains to Ouarzazate and treks to the desert on the country's far eastern border. Then, he works his way up to Fes, far north to Tangier, and back to Rabat, ending in the city of Casablanca. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Paul Simon: The Concert In Hyde Park Paul Simon's headlining set at the 2012 Hard Rock Calling Festival took a rapt audience in London's Hyde Park on a trip through Simon's extensive songbook, from "The Sound of Silence" and "The Boxer" to "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" and "Late in the Evening." The performance also features vibrant renditions of "You Can Call Me Al" and "The Boy in the Bubble" from his landmark album Graceland, in honor of its 25th anniversary. duration 1:54:42   STEREO TVG

    Simon & Garfunkel: The Concert In Central Park In 1981, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel stepped out on a stage in Central Park to perform for an estimated half-million adoring fans. Dressed casually on a pared-down set for their first full concert together in a decade, the old friends sang all the songs the crowd came to hear. From the energetic opening chords of "Mrs. Robinson" to the haunting harmonies of "The Sound of Silence," This program captures the magic of this once-in-a-lifetime night.
    Despite the record-setting crowd, the concert has a feeling of relaxed intimacy. Both native New Yorkers, Simon and Garfunkel seem to enjoy performing their well-loved hits in the park's familiar setting. They are warmly welcomed by the multigenerational audience, who turn the concert into a joyful celebration as they sing, dance and clap along. "You look great from here," says a smiling Garfunkel as balloons float by and children are hoisted onto shoulders.
    Childhood friends born only 3 weeks apart, the two grew up playing music together. They scored a modest hit as teenage duo Tom and Jerry, reuniting after college in 1963 as Simon and Garfunkel. They rose to worldwide fame in 1966 when "The Sound of Silence" became a number-one hit. Included on their Grammy-winning soundtrack to the movie The Graduate the following year, the song struck a chord with a generation of alienated youth. Through the second half of the '60s, Simon and Garfunkel achieved a string of hugely popular singles and albums. In 1970, they toured briefly in support of their final album, Bridge Over Troubled Water, but soon after decided to call it quits. The two occasionally performed together following their breakup, appearing on the second episode of Saturday Night Live and at each other's solo concerts. The duo was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.

    Feel Better with Pressure Point Therapy Dr. Michael Pinkus (D.C.) empowers viewers to take pain relief into their own hands. Over the years, Dr. Pinkus has found a way to make Eastern medicine practices easy to understand and accessible to the layperson. Comparing Asian acupuncture charts to Western nerve charts of the body, he cross-referenced which nerve pathways were involved with the ancient acupressure points.
    Where did the nerve travel to? What area of the body did it control or influence? Which organs were influenced by these points and how did this correspond to the nerve pathways in the body? From these observations and many years of hands-on application as a successful Doctor of Chiropractic, he derived this technique which he coined "Pressure Point Therapy." This program shows viewers how they can apply these techniques in their daily lives.

    Roadtrip Nation [#1106H] Time to Jump In New York City, the 36-foot RV squeezes through the city's narrow streets, but the team miraculously finds a parking spot. Leaving behind their goliath transportation for a few hours, the road-trippers opt for a new method of travel: the subway. As they explore the city, Manhattan seems larger than life to Ed, whose small-town upbringing in England has never brought him face-to-face with a bustling American city.
    After taking in the sights, the road-trippers meet Staceyann Chin, a spoken-word artist and LGBT rights activist. Staceyann opens up about her rough upbringing, during which she was abandoned by her mother and sexually assaulted. Reflecting on the effects of traumatic life events, Staceyann notes that while these events will always remain a deep scar, they can also be harnessed for positivity. After all, her tumultuous childhood was the impetus that inspired her to move to NYC and discover the outlet of poetry. She encourages the road-trippers to feed their spirits, take risks and take advantage of their youth.
    Inspired by Staceyann's urgings, the road-trippers decide to abandon their inhibitions, act on their impulses and take a "jump" of their own. Driving to the coast, they plunge into the Atlantic and swim around in the pouring rain, soaking up the fleeting nature of the moment.
