    Chasing Shackleton [#103] Following the successful sea crossing from Elephant Island, Tim Jarvis must now traverse the mountains of South Georgia to complete his re-enactment of Shackleton's 'double'. But injury, illness and bad weather are against him -- the carefully picked team of eight shrinks to just three, leaving Tim, Royal Marine Baz Gray and sailor Paul Larsen to finish the job. Racing through a narrow weather window, and without a proper support team, they battle high winds, bad visibility, deadly crevasse fields and impossible climbs - even reliving Shackleton's famous glissade down the Tridents -- to finally reach their goal Stromness, and walk in to a hero's welcome. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Led by Amenhotep III, it is a golden age of wealth, power and prosperity. Remarkable diplomacy is used to keep the empire's rivals at bay, while the provinces of Egypt revel in their protection. Art, technology and new ideas flourish, and Egyptian rulers are seen as gods. After the death of Amenhotep III, his son Akhenaten initiates drastic changes. Consumed by a monotheist belief, he orders a new capital built in the desert, marries the beauty Nefertiti and embarks on a campaign of religious repression. When he dies, the new capital is abandoned. The death of his son-in-law, the boy-king Tutankhamen, marks the end of the Ahmose dynasty. duration 56:06   STEREO TVPG

Though Egypt is once again divided, the period known as the New Kingdom has left a rich legacy that will reverberate through the ages. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Infinity Hall Live [#110H] Buckwheat Zydeco Emmy and Grammy Award-winning artist Buckwheat Zydeco and his band bring the Creole dance party to Infinity Hall. Born Stanley Joseph Dural, Jr. in 1947, Zydeco was raised in a large, musical family in Lafayette, Louisiana. "Growing up, the thing that made me happy was music," said Zydeco. "When you're listening to music or you're playing music, you got no business being sad." Zydeco's father played the accordion, but the young man originally refused to take up the instrument, dismissing the traditional zydeco music of his father's generation. He preferred playing the organ and listening to R&B. That changed in 1976, when he joined the "King of Zydeco" Clifton Chenier as a keyboard player. After learning to play the accordion, Zydeco formed his own band in 1979. For over three decades, Buckwheat Zydeco has been delighting audiences with his contemporary style of creole music. "It's based on the rhythm and blues. Whether you're playing an up-tempo song or a slow song, they always have that energy and that certain beat that go together with the music. It's always played with the washboard," says Zydeco, who plays the accordion, organ, and sings. Buckwheat Zydeco is an accomplished artist. He won an Emmy for his music in the television movie Pistol Pete: The Life And Times Of Pete Maravich and a Grammy for Best Zydeco Music Album in 2010 for Lay Your Burden Down. Zydeco also played at the closing ceremonies during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, and performed at both inaugurations for President William Jefferson Clinton. His infectious music appeals to people of all ages. In 2010, Zydeco released his second children's album, Bayou Boogie. Zydeco keeps Louisiana tradition alive with his infectious music, encouraging the audience to boogie to the Buckwheat beat. duration 57:07   STEREO TVPG

    Infinity Hall Live [#107H] Shelby Lynne This program features a concert by Grammy Award-winning artist Shelby Lynne. Since her debut in 1989, Shelby Lynne has been difficult to define with her music ranging from country, blues, Southern soul, roots rock, Western swing, jazz and adult contemporary pop. When asked to define herself, Lynne replied simply, "I try not to define anything really, myself especially. I like to let the music do the talking." This simple statement speaks volumes to her craft. Shelby Lynne is a musician at heart, bringing her soulful, down-home sound and style to countless individuals. Born in Virginia but raised in rural Alabama, Lynne struggled at the onset of her career. It wasn't until her 2000 album, I Am Shelby Lynne, that she garnered critical acclaim, propelling her into the international spotlight. Since then, she has continued to dazzle audiences across the country, asserting herself as one of country music's greats. Lynne has even made inroads onto the silver screen, appearing in several films, most notably the Johnny Cash biopic, Walk the Line. At Infinity Hall, Lynne takes the stage with accomplished Nashville guitarist John Jackson. "John Jackson is an excellent guitar-playing friend of mine, " she says, introducing Jackson, who has played with musicians like Bob Dylan and Lucinda Williams. Although the pair performs only with guitars, vocals, and a harmonica,Lynne's music fills the room and captivates the audience. Her set includes three songs from I Am Shelby Lynne, the album that earned her a Grammy in 2001 for Best New Artist. The show also includes a moving performance of "Pretend," an original song she included on her 2008 Dusty Springfield tribute album, Just A Little Lovin', and "Killin' Kind," which appeared in the film, Bridget Jones's Diary. duration 57:10   STEREO TVPG
