    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1406H] The Palm Beaches, Florida In this program, Burt takes a look at how the Palm Beaches were developed, the Norton Museum of Art, a man who was able to change the law so you could get divorced if your spouse was insane, and the history of polo.

    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

He spends seven years struggling without success to walk again, while Eleanor builds a personal and political life of her own. FDR returns to politics in 1928 and, as governor of New York, acts with such vigor and imagination during the first years of the Great Depression that the Democrats turn to him as their presidential nominee in 1932. He survives an attempted assassination as president-elect and at his inauguration tells his frightened countrymen the only thing they have to fear is "fear itself." duration 1:56:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Joseph heads to the Kingdom of Bhutan, a devout Buddhist country, fully aware of the possibilities for enlightenment that Bhutan offers him and his viewers. His trip through the "Land of the Thunder Dragon" begins in Paro with a conversation with an esteemed Buddhist master and an invitation to watch a local thangka (spiritual art) artist at work. From there he travels to the Bhutan capital of Thimphu where he is confronted by the modern pressures that ancient Bhutan faces as it strives to preserve and promote its cultural heritage, pristine environment and the "Gross National Happiness" of its people. In dzongs and monasteries, in shops and schools, in valleys and on mountaintops, every experience becomes a journey of discovery. And in a country where the traveler is surrounded by prayer - prayer flags, prayer wheels, prayer walls, sacred memorials and historic monasteries - every encounter is a blessing. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
