In this first of 2 episodes on Paris, we cruise the Seine River, visit Napoleon's tomb, and take in the Louvre.

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#609] Stamp Collecting, China Collecting things might be part of an innate human desire to own stuff - to gather physical evidence of our lives and the natural world around us, and for thousands of years, people have collected and brought back stuff from their travels. 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. Then Burt travels to China to find out why the government has an official policy encouraging stamp collecting. duration 25:08   STEREO TVG

    POV [#2606H] Neurotypical "Neurotypical" is an exploration of autism from the point of view of autistic people themselves. Four-year-old Violet, teenaged Nicholas and adult Paula occupy different positions on the autism spectrum, but they are all at pivotal moments in their lives. How they and the people around them work out their perceptual and behavioral differences becomes a remarkable reflection of the "neurotypical" world -- the world of the non-autistic -- revealing inventive adaptations on each side and an emerging critique of both what it means to be normal and what it means to be human. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

In this episode, we revisit some favorite spots and toss in a few new sights as we make a little sense out of a fascinating 1,000 years - from the fall of Rome to the dawn of the Renaissance.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#43] 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

    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#701H] Tacos On Fire! "What is a taco, anyway?" muses Rick over an upscale lobster taco at his white tablecloth restaurant, Topolobampo. "Is it crispy or soft? Grilled or griddled? Street food or taqueria fare? Fast food or fine dining?" The answer is, "all of the above ... and a whole lot more." And to prove it, Rick heads to Mexico City, for a non-stop taco trek. It starts at Fishmart, a neighborhood seafood restaurant in trendy Condesa with the lobster tacos that inspired Rick's Topolobampo version - succulent chunks of grilled lobster and black beans, wrapped in a warm corn tortilla. Following his nose, and the smell of smoldering charcoal and sizzling meat, Rick moves on to explore some taquerias - one renowned for its char-grilled tacos al carbon and another for pork tacos al pastor, made on a revolving vertical grill, gyros-style. Here too, it's all about simplicity: a few perfect mouthfuls of mind-blowing meat and super fresh tortilla. But Rick's saved his favorite underground street-food discovery for last. Super Tacos Chupacabras is hidden away under a freeway overpass. But it's so over-the-top, and the griddled tacos and slow-cooked toppings are so tasty and cheap, everyone from VIPs to bike messengers line up all day and all night. Back at home, Rick gets ready to throw his own "Supertacos" party with a little help from his friends. It's a laugh-filled, spontaneous celebration of cooking and fun, as everyone pitches in to make Tangy Tamarind Cooler and Mexican Snakebite, Tacos of Seared Scallops with Chorizo and Potatoes and Rick's easy version of Grilled Pork Tacos al Pastor, made right on the backyard grill. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Signs of the Time During the early days of baseball, fans experienced the game without the benefit of an umpire's colorful hand signals: the defiant fist as the perfect pitch crossed home plate, the cross-hand sweep as the runner slid into home, and the dramatic fist pump as the runner, ball and baseman converged at first base. The umpire's voice, usually drowned out by the screams of thousands of excited fans, served as the only means to signal a ball or strike or to call a player safe or out.
    This program explores the origins of baseball's hand signals and the pioneers responsible for this pivotal innovation. Narrated by Richard Dreyfuss, the award-winning documentary features full-scale re-enactments of early games and interviews with historians, retired umpires, former players Bob Feller, Brooks Robinson, Fred Lynn, Ken Singleton, Danny Litwhiler, Bobby Bragan and Bill Werber, and Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver.
