    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1505H] The Girl with the Book For centuries, women were discouraged from going to school.

These days, for the first time in U.S. history, more women graduate from American universities than men. It's an amazing change in the relationship between men and women. In this program, Burt travels around trying to find out what had been going on for hundreds of years and why things are changing. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#808H] Sault Saint Marie, Canada A Fall Journey Through Algoma Country - Joseph heads to Sault Saint Marie, the historic site of the first battle of the War of 1812, and rides the Algoma Railway north through the Agawa Canyon along the path of Canada's famed Group of Seven artists into the heart of Algoma Country. It's an excellent time to harken to the call of history as well as follow the lure of nature. With a world of spectacular natural experiences to compare to, Joseph discovers none of them surpass the glory of being in Sault St. Marie and Algoma Country in the fall - where even the evergreens turn color. While not all of life's blessings are obvious, it's hard to miss the message and sweet, simple gift of a leaf going through its transitions. In wilderness camps, Joseph encounters some of the denizens of the woodlands - black bears, bald eagles, loons, Canadian geese and more. Back in the Sault, its citified pleasures shine in unique museums, provincial parks, fly-fishing on the river and climbing to the top of the international bridge. During this trip Joseph is reminded that life is an invitation to live and you never know where you'll find the adventure. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

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

    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#904H] Peru - The Amazon and Beyond Join Joseph as he ships out on a Peruvian Amazon journey from the jungle town of Iquitos, Peru and makes his way through one of the world's wonders. One-fifth of the world's water and oxygen are produced in the Amazon Rainforest and thousands of species of birds, fish, reptiles, mammals and plants as well as hundreds of thousands of people thrive there. With all the pressures from logging and mining interests, it's also a wonder that this natural world still exists. Joseph sets out on a discovery that includes daybreak bird watching, night safaris in search of caimans, piranha fishing, canoeing the Amazon's tributaries, swimming with pink dolphins and close encounters with the "riverinos" - the people of the river. In the hopes that eco-tourism can slow the flow of the region's demise, Joseph embarks on an adventure that is fast becoming extinct. A visit to the Amazon is a reminder of from whence we've come, what we've lost and the need to protect and preserve what is left. Experiencing it is a thrill. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
