    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#601H] Easter Island - Mysteries & Myths Joseph travels to the most remote inhabited place on earth during his Easter Island adventure. Located more than two thousand miles from the coast of Chile, Rapa Nui (the island's native name) offers a world of mysteries that have remained unanswered for centuries. Questions abound surrounding the origins of the Rapa Nui culture, their enormous carved stone moai and the cause of the Rapa Nui people's ecological and natural disasters. Although one question invariably leads to another, Joseph attempts to explain what often eludes explanation while he spotlights the amazing journey of the Rapa Nui people from the shores of Polynesia more than 1,500 years ago through their glory days and times of turmoil to the vibrant culture that flourishes today. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Queen's Garden Hidden behind security cameras and barbed wire are 39 acres of a secret wildlife haven like no other. It's the most biodiverse place in central London and it belongs to Her Majesty The Queen. But few have explored the remarkable plants and animals found here until now. There are a quarter of Britain's insect species, 300 wild flowers and 42 bird species in The Queen's Garden. Oxford Scientific Films was granted exclusive access to film in the royal gardens over a year across all four seasons from Fall 2013. For the first time ever, we'll capture every move of Her Majesty's "royal wildlife" using the latest camera technology. Miniature "Animal Cams" follow everything from pipistrelle bats to fledgling birds and bats. And we'll discover the intriguing, personal stories of the Royal Family's love of nature: the Queen's morning walks with her corgis. The film also includes bits of history, telling the stories of how the garden has changed over the centuries under the rule of different Kings and Queens. During Henry VIII's reign it was a deer park, it then became a menagerie -- and finally an "eco-garden" and family space equipped with tennis court and helipad! duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Sgt. Pepper's Musical Revolution This program offers a look back at the creation, and ongoing influence, of the revolutionary 1967 Beatles album, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." When The Beatles stopped playing live in 1966, they suddenly had the time to pour all of their energy into writing and recording, creating an album that was a performance unto itself. Released in 1967, after what had been essentially a media blackout on what the band had been up to, the album was immediately a sensation and was recognized as a new chapter, not just in rock music, but in the history of all music.
    Hosted by British television presenter Howard Goodall, this film uses visually striking elements to conjure up the psychedelic world of Sgt. Pepper, provide context for the culture of the day, and show how the album was driving force within that culture. It also highlights how contemporary projects, like Beyonce's "Lemonade", would be unthinkable today had The Beatles not completely upended the whole concept of what an album should be. And for the Beatles fan in all of us, the show offers up material that has been squirreled away for decades, known only to a handful of people at Abbey Road Studios, including recordings of studio chat, and isolated instrument tracks and vocals.
