    Rick Steves' Europe [#605H] Granada, Cordoba, and Spain's Costa Del Sol Andalucia's Moorish heritage sparkles in the historic capitals of Granada and Cordoba. And the pride of the Reconquista and the power of Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand enliven the region's great sights. Tasting the smooth sherry and marveling at prancing stallions, we find the passion in Andalucian culture. And we top it off with fun in the Spanish sun on the Costa del Sol. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#701] Santa Fe, New Mexico For over 12,000 years, Native Americans have been living in the area around Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Spanish arrived in the 1600s and eventually the two cultures blended together to form one of the most interesting societies in America. In this program, we take a helicopter tour of some of the most beautiful parts of the Southwest, visit the oldest church in the United States, and discover how the native tribes used modern ledger paper to preserve their heroic legends and personal stories. We visit the Loretto Chapel and inspect its magic staircase, which appears to be totally unsupported. We travel through the Bandelier National Monument and see the remains of an ancient Pueblo community and take a look at a simple and inexpensive construction technique that will keep a house in good shape for hundreds of years. duration 26:45   STEREO TVG

    Real McCoy The Prohibition era (1920-1933) gave rise to a new generation of romantic "characters" - the flapper, the private eye, the organized crime boss and the bootlegger. One such bootlegger, pioneering rum runner Bill McCoy, earned the name "The Real McCoy" because he always delivered uncut, undiluted gin, rum and whiskey to his happy patrons. A teetotaler himself, this "gentleman crook" nevertheless fuelled the Roaring Twenties by smuggling more than one million bottles of illegal alcohol from the Caribbean to New York. McCoy's maritime daring and willful defiance of the unpopular 18th Amendment and government authority made him a household name during the era and earned him a Robin Hood-like mystique with the American public. Based on the book by Frederick Van de Water, THE REAL MCCOY recounts the extraordinary life and legendary exploits of this man who personified the tumultuous times in which he lived. The film charts McCoy's transformation from modest boat builder to public enemy number one through archival materials, historic re-enactments and interviews with noted scholars. duration 56:11   STEREO TVPG
  • 2:00 am
    Prohibition [#103H] A Nation of Hypocrites Support for Prohibition diminishes in the mid-1920s as the playfulness of sneaking around for a drink gives way to disenchantment with its glaring unintended consequences. By criminalizing one of the nation's largest industries, the law has given savvy gangsters a way to make huge profits, and as they grow in power, rival outfits wreak havoc in cities across the country. The burgeoning tabloid newspaper industry fans the frenzy with sensational headlines and front-page photographs of murder scenes, while Al Capone holds press conferences and signs autographs. The wealthy Pauline Sabin begins publicly decrying that Prohibition has divided the nation into "wets, drys, and hypocrites." Nearly a century before, women had hoped Prohibition would make the country a safer place for their children. But by the late 1920s many American women believe that the "Noble Experiment" has failed. Sabin unifies women of all classes, refuting the notion that all women support Prohibition and denouncing the law itself as the greatest threat to their families. Sabin and others argue that repeal will bring in tax revenue and provide desperately needed jobs. After the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932, Congress easily passes the 21st Amendment, which repeals the 18th, and the states quickly ratify it. In December of 1933, Americans can legally buy a drink for the first time in 13 years. (Part 3 of 3) duration 1:46:42   SRND51 TVPG-L (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#712H] Taiwan Lantern Festival Joseph, a winner of the 2013 Taiwan Tourism Festival Awards, deepens his understanding of Taiwan and its people by criss-crossing the island during the Taiwan Lantern Festival. A celebration of light, culture and tradition, the festival is a Chinese holiday more than 2, 000 years old. Joseph discovers that while the Taiwan Lantern Festival has its electric side, it also values the human touch. While the festival showcases the country's modern, technological side, it also honors its historic customs and traditions. Joseph explores these cultural connections at the national display of lanterns in Hsinshu, in historic temples and at street-side puppet shows, by enjoying traditional foods and, in the mountain district of Pingshi, by joining in the poignant release of thousands of sky lanterns which carry the wishes and dreams of locals and visitors heavenward. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Infinity Hall Live [#102H] Wilson Phillips Wilson Phillips, one of the biggest selling all-female groups in music history hits the Infinity Hall stage for an unforgettable night of nostalgia and chart-topping songs. The group, made up of Chynna Phillips, Wendy Wilson and Carnie Wilson, first reached the top of the Billboard charts in 1991 and have seen a resurgence in the past year with their appearance in the hit film Bridesmaids and their new reality series, Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On. Another reason for their return to center stage? They have a hit record! Their new CD, Dedicated, - which has topped the Amazon contemporary pop vocal charts - is a tribute to the music of their iconic parents; Chynna is the daughter of Michelle and John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas and Wendy and Carnie are the daughters of the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson. Displaying the same tight, lush harmonies their parents were known for in their music, Wilson Phillips gives these beloved songs a new appeal in this intimate concert sure to pull on the heartstrings of multiple generations. The group opens the concert with their #1 chart-topping ballad "Release Me," much to the delight of the crowd, but soon they kick off their high heels and get comfortable singing the nostalgic harmony-rich songs of their extended musical families. From the Mamas and the Papas repertoire, Wilson Phillips performs "12: 30", "Monday, Monday" and the song that inspired the Dedicated CD, "California Dreamin'". Carnie Wilson explained, "Last year we were at a private party and decided just for the party to sing 'California Dreamin''. After we sang that together, our manager asked 'What do you think about doing a cover album of the Mamas and the Papas and the Beach Boys?' I said 'When do we start?'" Fans of the Beach Boys won't be disappointed either as the group covers some of their most best-loved songs. From "God Only Knows" and "In My Room" to "Wouldn't it Be Nice," Wilson Phillips' performance of these tunes full of intricate, gorgeous harmonies gives them a fresh new tenderness. And it's a true family affair with Carnie's husband Rob Bonfiglio on guitar and Matt Jardine, the son of Beach Boys founding member Al Jardine, singing back-up vocals. Though the ladies of Wilson Phillips have grown up, married and now have nine children between them, they can still bring the house down with their most iconic hit song "Hold On," which serves as their finale. duration 56:49   STEREO TVPG
