    Rick Steves' Europe [#512] Istanbul Where Europe comes face to face with Asia, we'll explore the fascinating, multilayered city of Istanbul. We'll lose our way in the Grand Bazaar and feast like kings with locals at a fisherman's wharf. We'll follow the fall of the Byzantium and the rise of Islam at the city's ancient wall, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. To escape the city bustle, we'll board a boat on the churning Bosphorus, make friends over backgammon, and try a traditional bath. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

You meet a group of sculptors who are uncovering the history of a famous Greek statue, discover how dulcimers are made and played, and see the ultimate democracy in action. duration 27:09   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#2608#] Why We Love Cats and Dogs? Ask anyone and they immediately know -- they're either a dog person or a cat person. What is this all about? Follow an in-depth investigation into the great divide between dogs and cats and just what draws us to these two polarizing pets. Animal behaviorists, psychologists, trainers and devoted owners all weigh in. Dogs, we discover, are geniuses at reading what we want and the complex cat-human bond can be as fickle or as deep as a marriage. Funny, touching and provocative, we ask how well we really know our best friends and why we love them so much. duration 55:15   SRND51 TVG

    David Geffen: American Masters Notoriously press and camera-shy, David Geffen reveals himself for the first time in this unflinching portrait of a complex and compelling man. His far-reaching influence -- as agent and manager, record industry mogul, Hollywood and Broadway producer, billionaire philanthropist -- helped shape American popular culture for the past four decades. He launched the early successes of Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Jackson Browne, Tom Cruise and Guns N' Roses; he co-founded DreamWorks, the first new Hollywood studio in more than 50 years; he produced "Cats" and "Dreamgirls"; he is one of the largest contributors to the fight against AIDS and has become an important political voice. This dealmaker extraordinaire is witty, self-aware and candid. He and everyone from Yoko Ono and Cher, Frank Rich and Maureen Dowd, Stephen Spielberg and Barry Diller, David Crosby and Neil Young, Elton John and Rahm Emanuel illuminate his story. duration 1:56:46   SRND51 TVPG-L

    Travelscope [#411H] Cappadocia, Turkey Cappadocia, in Turkey's rural heart, is a natural wonder and a cultural treasure chest. It is where the East and West seem to have collided and "fairy chimneys" -- fantastic volcanic ash formations -- have risen from the land and tower over beautifully carved valleys. As part of his journey through the Cappadocia Region, Joseph floats in a hot air balloon above the homes and underground cities that are carved out of the limestone rock of the Goreme Valley. He visits holy mosques and ancient churches, delights in Cappadocia's slower, gentler lifestyle and meets the artisans of the region's traditional arts and crafts -- rug weaving, ceramics and water painting. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

So we revisit some favorite classical sites around the Mediterranean, pick up some new stories and see what kinds of connections we can make. It's the Greeks in Athens, Delphi, Delos, Paestum and Syracuse-and the Romans in Pompeii, Rome and Provence, with a little history of wine and olives thrown in for good measure. duration 27:47   STEREO TVG
