    Independent Lens [#1405] Soul Food Junkies Baffled by his dad's reluctance to change his traditional soul food diet in the face of a health crisis, filmmaker Byron Hurt sets out to learn more about this culinary tradition and it's relevance to black cultural identity.

This film puts this culinary tradition under the microscope to examine both its benefits and consequences.

    Sandwiches That You Will Like It's America between two slices of bread! A slightly goofy celebration of some great sandwiches at interesting places. Even when much of America seems "all the same," host Rick Sebak can still find distinctive, delicious differences in several cities. Sebak and his crew traveled from Maine to New Orleans to San Jose, talking to sandwich makers, sandwich eaters and sandwich lovers. The program is an explosion of American voices talking about tastes, traditions and toppings. Shops visited include:

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#23] 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

    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#707H] The Soul of Mole Mole is an idea that's half pre-Columbian, half European, and 100% Mexican - a sauce, a preparation and a national dish that rivals the culinary masterpieces of the world's greatest cuisines. Rick and his daughter, Lanie, set off on a culinary journey to explore the mysteries of mole that takes them from the mile-high piles of dried chiles in Mexico City's vast La Merced market to stalls selling towering mounds of concentrated mole paste. Back in Chicago, they're on a mission to make mole from scratch. It's an all-day labor of love to be sure, but Rick breaks the complex process down into easy steps, giving tips on all the ingredients - from sesame seeds and tomatillos to chiles and chocolate - that give mole its richly layered flavor. As the sauce simmers over a wood fire in the backyard, Rick and Lanie use some of it to make a succulent Lacquered Chicken in Classic Red Mole and whip up some Classic Mexican White Rice with Sweet Plantains and a Mexican crudite platter. As the sun sets, family and friends gather in the garden for a taste of true Mexican soul food: homemade mole in all its slow-simmered glory. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
