    Rick Steves' Europe [#308H] Provence: Legendary Light, Wind and Wine Provence, known for its soft light and fierce wind, is as loved by Americans as it is by the sun.

    Infinity Hall Live [#202H] Cowboy Junkies With their languid guitars and ethereal vocals, the Canadian group Cowboy Junkies cast a narcotic spell over their Infinity Hall audience in this intimate concert performance. Consisting of Alan Anton (bass), and siblings Michael Timmins (guitar), Peter Timmins (drums) and Margo Timmins (vocals), Cowboy Junkies specialize in a unique sound that combines country, blues and folk, but often with a touch of melancholy thrown in for good measure. As Margo Timmins jokingly told the audience, "I figure if you're here tonight, you like sad songs. At least I hope you do. If you don't, you should probably leave about now." The group began in Toronto when Michael and Alan returned from Europe after an unsuccessful stint with a couple of musical acts. Back home, they began jamming with Michael's brother Peter on drums and sister Margo on vocals, despite the fact that she was a social worker who had never performed in public before. Their first significant release was The Trinity Session in 1988, which they recorded in one night with one microphone inside Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity. The album proved to be a cult hit garnering critical acclaim and college radio airplay for the songs "Sweet Jane" and "Misguided Angel." Since that time, the band had built and maintained a loyal fan base who appreciate their smart, bluesy compositions and daring, independent style. Most recently, Cowboy Junkies began a unique four-album cycle called The Nomad Series over an 18-month period with every album built around a different (but common) narrative, from time spent in China to a tribute record to the late musician Vic Chestnutt. Fans of the Cowboy Junkies won't be disappointed with their Infinity Hall set, which offers a nice mix of old and new songs from their 26-year career, including the crowd favorite "Sweet Jane," a lyrical, mandolin-accompanied version of "Fairytale," Vic Chestnutt's "See You Around," and a cover of Neil Young's "Powderfinger." duration 56:27   STEREO TVPG

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#505] The History and Science of Shopping The two questions travelers ask most often are, "Where should I eat?" and "Where should I shop?" In this program, Burt takes a look at the history of shopping from its beginnings in 17th century London and the first department store in Paris, to New York's Fifth Avenue and the auction of a 92-million dollar painting at Sotheby's. We find out how the brains of men and women make them shop differently, who introduced the idea of ready-to-wear clothing and why. We see how the French Revolution changed the way people shopped, how the shopping bag and the price tag were invented, and why the survival of a nation can depend on how it shops. duration 28:19   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#21] 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.

    American Masters [#2306H] Lennon NYC In October 2010, John Lennon would have been 70 years old. In December 2010, he will have been dead for 30 years. Yet, his art still haunts us. It still matters deeply and it is still deeply relevant. It still speaks to millions of people. This film establishes Lennon as an American artist. It is, essentially, a classic immigrant tale: Lennon and Ono left London in 1971 in search of freedom, both artistic and personal. We hear Lennon's song New York City and follow into their life - their commitment to peace and political activism, their struggles to remain in America and, of course, the greatest music from that period and the concert footage from Lennon's first two albums, Plastic Ono Band and Imagine. With unprecedented and exclusive cooperation from Yoko Ono, access to never-before-seen material from the Lennon archives and conversations with those closest to him - Ono, Elton John, the photographer Bob Gruen, Ringo Starr -- this program tells John Lennon's story as it has never been told before -- and as it will never be told again. duration 1:55:46   SRND51 TVPG-L
