On parade day Joseph dons a baker's cap and joins the Bakers Guild for a romp through the streets of Zurich to the square where the Bogg (snowman) who, in observation of the end of winter, loses his head in a burst of firecrackers. Once he is engulfed in flames winter is banished and the citizens of Zurich use the glowing embers of his pyre to roast sausages, along with quaffing local wine and partying well into the night. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#13] 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
