    Rick Steves' Europe [#603] Dubrovnik and Balkan Side-Trips Nestled inside its mighty ramparts is Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic." From this remarkably preserved medieval fortress city, we venture into less-touristy corners of the former Yugoslavia. In Bosnia, we visit Mostar - war-torn in the 90s, but bursting with promise today. In Montenegro, we sail the fjord-like Bay of Kotor and explore its mysterious, mountainous interior. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    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

    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)

    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." During this episode Joseph and his viewers are truly on a movable feast for all the senses. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Happiness Advantage with Shawn Achor, The Positive psychology expert Shawn Achor demonstrates how to use the latest scientific research on happiness to find success in every aspect of our lives. Most people believe that once they land that long-awaited promotion, make more money, get their kids into the right schools, lose a few pounds, or find a meaningful relationship, then they'll be happy. But based on recent discoveries in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, Achor shows us that that formula for happiness is wrong. In fact, it's backwards.

    It turns out, happiness actually fuels success, not the other way around.This is what Achor calls The Happiness Advantage. When we become more positive, our brain becomes more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient and productive. The result is an advantage over the entirety of our life - improving success at work, creating better health, better relationships with our loved ones, and creating a happier home.
