    Orangutan Diary Deep in the Borneo rainforest, a dedicated team of vets and care-givers have a massive and emotional task ahead of them: to rescue and nurse back to health the jungle's most appealing - and most vulnerable - animals. There are currently 600 (approx.) vulnerable orangutans being cared for, day and night, at the Borneo Orangutan Foundation. Most have had traumatic lives, clinging to survival as rainforests are burned around them, or snatched from the wild to be sold as pets. For the team of vets and care-givers, every day is a challenge - not only nursing the orphans, but also dealing with the everyday human crises of life in a rainforest hospital. duration 1:26:40   STEREO TVG

    Julia Child Memories: Bon Appetit! Anchored in some of the best of The French Chef episodes, this special reminds viewers why Julia was a TV personality like no other. As the woman who has been credited with introducing French cooking techniques to mainstream America, she will also forever be remembered as the country's first celebrity chef that brought the world of food to TV viewers when she flipped a ground breaking omelet on National Public Television on Feb. 11, 1963. That moment signaled the launch of decades of cooking on television - the first of which was most memorably, The French Chef with Julia Child (produced 1963-1973). duration 1:58:52   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#29] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers. The first three shows demonstrate and explain three to four new postures or exercises per show. The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46

But in 1837, something was created that was easy to collect and gave the collector the sensation of having traveled. It was the first postage stamp. Today, there are over 200 million stamp collectors. Burt Wolf looks at the history of stamp collecting, the most popular stamp ever printed, the most valuable stamp (over one million dollars), and the great forgeries.
