    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#608] Assisi, Italy The town of Assisi, in the center of Italy was built on a hill that has been inhabited for about 4000 years, and for almost as long it has been a religious center. They say that the stones that were used to build Assisi have absorbed the prayers of the millions of pilgrims that have come there over the centuries. And now, it is believed that the stones radiate a sense of peace and quiet that has a spiritual effect on visitors. Burt Wolf tours the city, discovers the true story of the life of St. Francis and the founding of the Franciscan order, visits the sites sacred to St. Clare, explains the art in the Basilica of St. Francis, where the Italian Renaissance was born, and traces the creation of the Nativity scene. duration 27:28   STEREO TVG

    Bombing of Germany: American Experience [#2203H] On September 1, 1939 -- the first day of World War II in Europe -- President Franklin D. Roosevelt appealed to the warring nations to "under no circumstances undertake the bombardment from the air of civilian populations." Just six years later, British and American Allied forces had carried out a bombing campaign of unprecedented might over Germany's cities, claiming the lives of nearly half a million civilians. From International Emmy Award and Peabody Award-winning producer Zvi Dor-Ner (Israel's Next War, House of Saud) comes "The Bombing of Germany" a film that examines the defining moments of the offensive that led the U.S. across a moral divide. Weaving together interviews with WWII pilots and historians, and archival footage of the bombing and its aftermath, the film is a reminder of the dilemma imposed by war's civilian casualties, a topic that continues to resonate as America enters the eighth year of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. duration 54:32   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

    War [#107H] A World Without War In spring 1945, although the numbers of dead and wounded have more than doubled since D-Day, the people of Mobile, Sacramento, Waterbury and Luverne understand all too well that there will be more bad news from the battlefield before the war can end. That March, when Americans go to the movies, President Franklin Roosevelt warns them in a newsreel that although the Nazis are on the verge of collapse, the final battle with Japan could stretch on for years. In the Pacific, Eugene Sledge of Mobile is once again forced to enter what he calls "the abyss" in the battle for the island of Okinawa - the gateway to Japan. Glenn Frazier of Alabama, one of 168,000 Allied prisoners of war still in Japanese hands, celebrates the arrival of carrier planes overhead, but despairs of ever getting out of Japan alive. In mid-April, Americans are shocked by news bulletins announcing that President Roosevelt is dead; many do not even know the name of their new president, Harry Truman. Meanwhile, in Europe, as Allied forces rapidly push across Germany from the east and west, American and British troops, including Burnett Miller of Sacramento, Dwain Luce of Mobile and Ray Leopold of Waterbury, discover for themselves the true horrors of the Nazis' industrialized barbarism - at Buchenwald, Ludwigslust, Dachau, Hadamar, Mauthausen and hundreds of other concentration camps. Finally, on May 8, with their country in ruins and their fuehrer dead by his own hand, the Nazis surrender.
    But as Eugene Sledge remembers, to the Marines and soldiers still fighting in the Pacific, "No one cared much. Nazi Germany might as well have been on the moon." The battle on Okinawa grinds on until June, and when it is finally over, 92,000 Japanese soldiers, as well as tens of thousands of Okinawan civilians, have been killed. Okinawa also is the worst battle of the Pacific for the Americans, and as they prepare to move on to Japan itself, still more terrible losses seem inevitable. Allied leaders at Potsdam set forth the terms under which they will agree to end the war, but for most of Japan's rulers, despite the agony their people are enduring, unconditional surrender still remains unthinkable. Then, on August 6, 1945, under orders from President Truman, an American plane drops a single atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima, obliterating 40,000 men, women and children in an instant; 100,000 more die of burns and radiation within days (another 100,000 will succumb to radiation poisoning over the next five years). Two days later, Russia declares war against Japan. On August 9, a second American atomic bomb destroys the city of Nagasaki, and the rulers of Japan decide at last to give up - and the greatest cataclysm in history comes to an end. In the following months and years, millions of young men return home - to pick up the pieces of their lives and to try to learn how to live in a world without war.

    Nazi Hunters [#112Z] Goering - The Star Exhibit As it was not possible to try Hitler for crimes against humanity at Nuremburg, the prosecutors turned to the next best thing - his deputy, Hermann Goering. Goering had founded the Gestapo, and commanded the Luftwaffe. Strangely the first group to capture Goering was the SS, who had been given orders by Hitler to kill him. The Americans then took up the chase and, in a two week hunt, finally caught up with him. He was sentenced to be executed but, the day before the execution, managed to commit suicide using cyanide. duration 49:32   STEREO TVPG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#27] 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

    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#610H] Ontario, Canada's Niagara Peninsula - Toronto And Beyond On his visit to the Canadian province of Ontario, Joseph sets out to prove there's more to the Niagara Peninsula region than world-famous Niagara Falls. To prove his point, he begins his wandering in Toronto, Canada's largest and most cosmopolitan city. He finds that besides being a cultural Mecca for art, theater, film, music, fine dining, as well as one of the greenest cities in North America, it is one of the world's most multicultural cities. Italian, Irish, Indian, Greek, Chinese, Vietnamese -- the ethnic diversity matches the seemingly never-ending list of world-class attractions and activities. From gentle bicycling along Lake Ontario's shore to kayaking to the Toronto Islands or hanging 116 stories above the ground from the edge of the CN Tower, Joseph finds out there's never a dull moment in this young, vibrant and ever-evolving town. And, if that isn't enough, a day excursion to the Niagara Peninsula wine region and the quaint town of Niagara-On-The-Lake keeps Joseph sippin', nibblin', pickin' and hoppin' through the more than 60 wineries that have sprouted up in one of Canada's most scenic regions, at one time described by Winston Churchill as, "the prettiest Sunday drive in North America."

    Nazi Hunt: Elusive Justice An unprecedented investigation of the global search for the 20th Century's greatest criminals. Following the atrocities of World War II, the international community declared the Nazi party a criminal organization, and pledged to prosecute and punish those individuals responsible for the genocide of innocent individuals. During the Nuremberg Trials, approximately 1000 Nazi officials were convicted of crimes against humanity, but tens of thousands evaded prosecution - by concealing their war records, assuming false identities, fleeing Europe, or serving various Allied countries as spies or scientists. < br />Thousands of Nazi criminals are presumed to be alive. This feature length film explores how governments and institutions failed to uphold their own laws, and forced individuals to act independently - and provoke them into belated and anemic action. Featuring portraits of the men and women who conducted investigations and led manhunts over six decades, this film provides a definitive account of efforts - official and unofficial - to locate, prosecute, and punish fugitive Nazis around the world. Narrated by Candice Bergen. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TV14-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#605] The Pilgrimage Road to Santiago, Spain A pilgrimage is a trip to a place that was made holy by a special event, or because it held a magical object, or both. People have been making pilgrimages for tens of thousands of years, and one of the most famous is the road to Santiago across Northern Spain. It is like walking through a continuous museum. You cross two-thousand-year-old bridges that were built by the Romans. You sit down to lunch in the reconstruction of a five-thousand-year-old Iron Age hut. You are in constant contact with the great art and architecture of the Middle Ages. Burt Wolf walks the sacred road, looks at the legend of Santiago, and discovers why, even in modern times, over 200,000 people make the trip every year. duration 25:01   STEREO TVG
