  • 12:00 am
    Rick Steves' Europe [#312H] Lisbon and the Algarve Experiencing the best of Portugal, we start in Lisbon, a ramshackle mix of glorious old and fun-loving new. Salty sailors' quarters and wistful Fado singers mix with ornate architecture to recall the glory days when Vasco da Gama and Magellan made Portugal a world power. Then we head for the south coast of your travel dreams-the Algarve. We explore the Land's End of Europe-windy and historic Cape Sagres before savoring pristine beaches and arm-wrestling octopi in the sleepy fishing village of Salema. duration 27:46   STEREO TVG

    Life On Fire [#103H] The Surprise Salmon In Alaska, the fresh water that feeds the rivers is snowmelt from North America's highest mountains and most active volcanoes. Time and again, they erupt and poison the rivers. Scientists have only just begun to piece together what might have happened nearly 2,000 years ago, when one race of salmon faced the death of their natal river and were forced back to the open ocean on an exceptional adventure. Navigating between the sulphurous waters, bears, sharks and eagles, the fish escaped the Earth's wrath to give birth to descendants that continue their pioneering journey to the heart of an active volcano. duration 55:46   STEREO TVG
  • 2:00 am
    National Parks: America's Best Idea [#103H] The Empire of Grandeur (1915-1919) In the early 20th century, America has a dozen national parks, but they are a haphazard patchwork of special places under the supervision of different federal agencies. The conservation movement, after failing to stop the Hetch Hetchy dam, pushes the government to establish one unified agency to oversee all the parks, leading to the establishment of the National Park Service in 1916. Its first director, Stephen Mather, a wealthy businessman and passionate park advocate who fought vigorously to establish the NPS, launches an energetic campaign to expand the national park system and bring more visitors to the parks. Among his efforts is to protect the Grand Canyon from encroaching commercial interests and establish it as a national park, rather than a national monument. duration 1:53:21   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Bangs attempts to uncover the secret to Costa Rica's success in preserving their small country's extraordinary biodiversity. He begins his journey on the Pacific side, where the Osa Peninsula encircles Corcovado National Park.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#109] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday.

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

    Infinity Hall Live [#205H] The Bacon Brothers The Bacon Brothers may be the best kept secret of the music industry. Michael Bacon is an accomplished cellist and guitarist, as well as an award-winning composer for both film and television. Kevin Bacon - one of the most prolific screen actors of his generation and a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner - is also a talented singer and songwriter. The duo's eclectic sound combines their unique talents in a way that keeps their fans coming back for more year after year. As Kevin explains it, "When we were just starting out, people would say 'what kind of music do you play?' And the answer was 'well, it's folk/rock/soul/country.' We shortened it to 'forosoco' and then titled our first album Forosoco." Michael then chimes in sarcastically, "It was a great idea. We named our first album Forosoco and nobody could pronounce it. Wasn't probably the best marketing tool." Born into a household alive with arts and music, Kevin and Michael have played music together since they were boys, but only formed their band in 1994 for a charity event in their hometown of Philadelphia. The collaboration worked so well, the brothers hit the road whenever their busy schedules would allow. Soon they produced a collection of finely tuned albums with crowd-pleasing appeal, including Forosoco in 1997, Getting There in 1999, 2001's Can't Complain, as well as some live and 'best of' compilations. duration 56:30   STEREO TVPG
