    Rick Steves' Europe [#311] Budapest: The Best of Hungary Budapest, once Vienna's partner in ruling the Austro-Hungarian empire, feels like the capital of Eastern Europe. It's actually two cities - busy Pest and noble Buda, straddling the Danube and laced together by mighty bridges. Capitalism has taken hold with gusto as shopping boulevards thrive and stone Lenins and cast iron Stalins litter a theme park at the edge of town. Today Gypsy orchestras feature smoking violins, venerable mineral baths are the rage, and 19th century coffeehouses enjoy a renaissance. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Lincoln@Gettysburg In 1863 Abraham Lincoln proved himself a master of a new frontier - not on the battlefields of the Civil War, but in his "high-tech" command center: the War Department Telegraph Office, America's first "Situation Room." The "Internet" of the 19th century, the telegraph gave Lincoln new powers to reshape leadership and wield personal control across distant battlefields. The results of Lincoln's pioneering experiment in electronic leadership led to the rebirth of America on the fields of Gettysburg - both in the battle that turned the tide of the Civil War, and in a few words that recast the American ideal as a national creed: the Gettysburg Address. This program will unfold the greatest turning point in American history: the rebirth of a nation and the dawn of the information age. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG

    Titanic Belfast: Birthplace of a Legend The tragic end of Titanic is well known. What is less well known is the story of her origin, how and why she was built and by whom. This film, releasing in time for the 100th anniversary of the disaster, tells us many new details of the Titanic. It traces Belfast's emergence as a shipbuilding powerhouse in the early 19th Century, primarily in the form of the Harland and Wolff shipyard. In 1907 the White Star Line awarded Harland and Wolff a contract to construct 3 superb steam liners that would hit new heights in terms of passenger safety, comfort, style and sheer size. The first 2 to be commissioned were the sister ships Olympic and the Titanic, with the construction of the Titanic beginning in March of 1909.
    Descendants of shipworkers and historians explore the role the building of the massive Titanic played in the lives of the inhabitants of Belfast. Sadly, the Titanic's ending is well known and tragic - on her first voyage, shortly before midnight on the night of April 14th, 1912 the ship struck an iceberg in the freezing North Atlantic.
    In less than 3 hours she sank to the ocean floor, with the loss of over 1500 lives. 36 of those lost lives belonged to men and women of Belfast. Seldom-seen images of Titanic during her construction and preparation for launch are included in this new look at the doomed ship. Interviews were filmed at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. The film also looks at the emerging Titanic museum in Belfast.

    Burt Wolf: What We Eat [#106] This Spud's for You: How The Potato Changed The World On two occasions the potato, which originated in South America, changed the course of world history. The first time was when it fed the great Inca Empire and the Spanish explorers who conquered it. The second was when it arrived in Europe, fed an expanding population that provided the workers for the Industrial Revolution, and allowed a small group of Northern European nations to dominate the world for over 200 years. This program looks at the details behind these stories: how the potato became a hidden food that saved people during times of war, how it changed the way people farmed, caused a population explosion in Ireland and then destroyed millions of Irish farmers. We'll discover when the French fry arrived in America and how it got turned into a chip. duration 27:55   TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#25] 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

    Bee Gees: One Night Only The Bee Gees, in this glossy musical and visual event, perform their biggest singles from the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s, plus songs from their recent CD, Still Waters. Taped at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in November 1997, the concert features the timeless harmonies of Robin, Barry, and the late Maurice Gibb, and includes a special appearance by guest artist Celine Dion, performing "Immortality." Counted among the most successful musical groups of all time, the Bee Gees are the only recording artists to write and produce six straight number-one singles, and the first composers to have five songs in the Top Ten at the same time.

    With a string of hit singles, the Bee Gees became pop stars in the late 1960s. But their participation on the soundtrack of the generation-defining film Saturday Night Fever shot them to mega-stardom in the mid-'70s. Featuring a slew of pop/disco standards like "Stayin' Alive, " "Night Fever" and "How Deep is Your Love," the album remains the biggest selling soundtrack in history, with 40 million copies sold to date.

    The Bee Gees continued their success into the '80s and'90s, with platinum albums like Spirits Having Flown and successful collaborations with the likes of Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick and Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers. In 1997 they were inducted into the Rock ' n' Roll Hall of Fame, and received career achievement awards from the American Music Awards and World Music Awards - tributes to the lasting quality of their work.

    Song List: You Should Be Dancing, Alone, Massachusetts, To Love Somebody, I've Gotta Get a Message to You, Words, Islands in the Stream, Don't Throw it All Away, NightFever, More Than a Woman, Lonely Days, New York Mining Disaster 1941, I Can't See Nobody, And the Sun Will Shine, Nights on Broadway, Heart breaker, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, Immortality, Tragedy, I Started a Joke, Grease, Jive Talkin', How Deep is Your Love, Stayin' Alive, You Should Be Dancing.
