The concert was recorded at Boston's House of Blues. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVG

    Architect Robert A.M. Stern: Presence of the Past As a boy growing up in working class Brooklyn, Robert A. M. Stern would gaze across the river at the gleaming towers of Manhattan. To him the city looked like Oz. Today this former outsider is arguably one of its Wizards. Stern heads a successful New York architectural firm with commissions from around the world. He is also the Dean of Architecture at Yale and prolific author whose tomes are measured not in pages but pounds. In 2011 Stern was chosen to receive the Richard H. Driehaus Prize, an international award honoring architects who create classical and traditional work. But Stern's reputation as a classically-grounded traditionalist is not the whole story. Stern's firm has built distinctive modernist structures and has helped shape a number of environments that rely on video and LED technology for their form. And at Yale, Stern's teaching staff includes hard-core modernists, many of whom who Stern calls close personal friends. "Architect Robert A.M. Stern: Presence of the Past" explores how Stern bridges the very divide in modern architecture that he has to define -- that between the modernists and the traditionalists. It puts Stern's work in the context of a larger debate among architects who reject the past, those who embrace it and those who pick and choose as the context requires. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Travelscope [#406H] Germany's Winter Carnival Joseph dons his jester's cap and heads to the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg for Fasnet -- Fasnacht -- Carnival. Each town may call it by a different name, but they all agree it's a non-stop community party that celebrates local culture and chases away the winter blues. Some of the historic carnival characters, like the Narro, date back to the festival's beginning 500 years ago while others are the products of lively modern-day imaginations. From Konstanz on the shores of Lake Constance to the Black Forest villages of Villingen, Oberndorf, Gengenbach, Elzach and Rottweil, Joseph uncovers the festival's history and rejoices in the controlled chaos of tolle tage -- Crazy Days! duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Smart Travels - Europe With Rudy Maxa [#413] A Music Lover's Europe For a totally different view of Europe, Rudy shows smart travelers how to organize a trip around a theme. Rudy discovers surprising and fresh takes on Europe as he sets out on a music lover's tour. Winning, live performances by the Sicilian folk band Diascouri, and by Groupo Emiliano, a zany, classically-trained quartet from Emilia Romagna, are the backbone of this offbeat trip. But performance is just the start. Rudy visits folkdance groups in Greece, Sweden and Norway and delights in the classics in Italy and Austria.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#71] 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
