    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 we top it off with fun in the Spanish sun on the Costa del Sol. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1610H] On The Road In America, Part 1 "On the Road in America" is a 3-part mini-series that reports on the history of migrations within the United States - not how people got here, but how and why they moved around once they were here.
    In the first program, "Tails of Hope and Tears," Burt retraces the big relocations of the 19th century. Native Americans were relocated and their ancestral lands turned over to European settlers. In addition, the government was in the process of giving away valuable mineral claims. And finally, there was the discovery of gold.

    John Glenn: A Life of Service This documentary chronicles the extraordinary life and career of an American legend. It surveys Glenn's distinguished military, NASA and political careers through archival footage and interviews with lawmakers, journalists, historians and NASA colleagues, including Senators Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Carl Levin (D-MI) and PBS News Hour's Mark Shields.
    The film captures the pivotal events in Glenn's life: his humble beginnings in Depression-era Ohio, his life-changing ride-along with a barnstormer, his enlistment following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, his 122 combat missions during World War II and the Korean War, his envelope-pushing exploits as a Naval test pilot, and his transition to astronaut during the Cold War. Thrilling archival footage of NASA lift-offs and transmissions help chronicle Glenn's historic orbits around the Earth on February 20, 1962. In interviews, Glenn describes the importance of the Mercury-Atlas 6 mission, the risky nature of the launch and Friendship 7's treacherous re-entry five hours later. As a fitting coda to a life spent dedicated to serving his country, this program concludes with Glenn's record-setting space flight in 1998 at age 77.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#125] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday.

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
