    Rick Steves' Europe [#208H] Dublin and Mystical Sidetrips Dublin's story is of feast and famine: from its 18th-century Golden Age to its 20th-century struggles for independence to its boomtime today. We explore the town's foreboding castle, patriotic jail, and Trinity College with its illuminated Book of Kells--a bright light from the Dark Ages.

    American Masters [#2601H] Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance Documenting how the Joffrey revolutionized American ballet -- combining modern dance with classic technique, art with social statement and rock music with traditional choreography -- this film is an expression of Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino's vision and artistry. From a company that began with six dancers touring the United States in a borrowed station wagon in 1956, they grew to international prominence, transforming the face of dance with originality and bold, edgy new perspectives that challenged conventions. They gained extensive media attention, appearing everywhere from the Kennedy White House to the Ed Sullivan Show. The film weaves a wealth of rare archival footage with excerpts from many seminal Joffrey dances, shows the full history of the company, their struggles against financial or artistic setbacks, and how they resurrected and reinvented themselves.

The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers.

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
