    Rick Steves' Europe [#214H] Switzerland's Jungfrau Region: Best of the Alps If Heidi is alive, she's in this sky-high corner of the Swiss Alps, with cows on breathtaking ridges. After settling into a traditional village where locals scythe hay by hand, we hike, bike, and parasail. We blast an alphorn, get sprayed by waterfalls raging deep inside a mountain, and munch muesli for breakfast at 10,000 feet. For a finale, we ride Europe's highest lift up the mighty Jungfrau for hot cocoa, glacier sledding, and oh-wow views. duration 27:46   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#3005H] Attenborough's Life Stories: Life On Camera This mini-series focuses on three fields that David Attenborough feels have been transformed most profoundly: filmmaking, science and the environment. Richly illustrated with the sequences he has spent 60 years capturing (re-mastered for the first time in HD), with new interviews in which he revisits the content, stories and locations that were featured in his landmark series and packed with the personal anecdotes of the BBC's most accomplished raconteur, this series will be a synopsis of a unique half-century. duration 56:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#4003H] Rise of the Drones A revolution is transforming the armed forces of every nation. Nova launches an investigation of the explosive growth of airborne UAVs or pilotless drones. During the invasion of Iraq in 2003, the US deployed only a handful; now, it has more than 7000. Besides the US, over 40 other nations are now building or buying these increasingly lethal and cost-effective weapons, and it's only a matter of time before a terrorist group turns the technology against Western targets. The latest Predators can track 12 targets at once, trace footprints back to their source and even recognize individual faces. Yesterday's soldiers and pilots put their lives on the line but today, a UAV pilot can "fly" a mission in Afghanistan remotely from a base in Nevada. As one pilot said, after carrying out a strike, "within 20 minutes you can be sitting at the dinner table talking to your kids." That new ability has already saved hundreds if not thousands of US service lives but may make military strikes a more tempting, seemingly risk-free option. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Life On Fire [#104] Phoenix Temple Around the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, life has struggled for thousands of years to re-emerge from the ashes. Underground, vampire and other bat species have colonized the miles of tunnels created by hot flowing magma. In the crater, parakeets and vultures have made nests on cliffs exposed to toxic gases. On the flanks of this still active mountain, the vegetation has been burnt away by lava flows leaving barren stretches that are recolonized over hundreds of years. At the foot of the volcano, fields, pastures and towns have grown over the oldest lava flows. In this harsh environment, nature struggles to conquer ash and lava before the next eruption erases its efforts ... and the phoenix must rise again. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Pioneers of Television [#302H] Primetime Soaps "Dallas" and "Dynasty" kicked off the nighttime soap frenzy in the late 1970s and spun off the long-lasting series "Knots Landing." Sometimes forgotten is the genre's antecedent: 1964's "Peyton Place," which starred Mia Farrow and Ryan O'Neal. Interviewees in this episode include Larry Hagman, Joan Collins, Linda Evans, Diahann Carroll, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, Michele Lee, Joan Van Ark and Donna Mills. duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG

    Rudy Maxa's World [#103] Istanbul, Turkey Everywhere in the Turkish capital is evidence of civilizations that tried to tame it. From the Romans to the Ottomans, this tumultuous city has seen it all, and its architecture, cuisine, and customs reflect that reality. Here, Christianity and Islam have their touchstones, and the cliche that "East meets West" at the Bosporus is a truism. Rudy tries to avoid buying a Turkish carpet - he admits he's powerless to visit Istanbul without returning home with a rug - but, as usual, he fails. Prowl some of the Grand Bazaar's 2000 shops and spend some time with a professional shopper who teaches travelers the fine art of haggling. And can those Turkish carpets tell stories? Many do - stories of love and despair are woven in wool and color. Rudy gets steamed and scrubbed in a 16th century hammam, or public bath, and tours some of the world's great buildings - Topkapi Palace, the Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, and the downtown Spice Market. Be hypnotized by Whirling Dervishes, charmed by the Iznik art of ceramics, and learn how to buy a - carpet. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#37] 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

Great, ancient towns of Ephesus, Antalya, Myra and Dalyan dot the Turkish coast, tempting visitors to step back into time when lavish Roman homes and markets dotted the landscape.

  • 10:30 am
    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#711H] A Whole New Enchilada Rick's out to dispel the notion that an enchilada is all about smothering tortillas in sauce and gooey cheese. At Cafe Azul y Oro in Mexico City, he shows us the iconic Mexican version of the dish: a corn tortilla in a red mole sauce and rolled around a light, simple chicken filling. From that classic formula things can, of course, get more inventive and Rick shares with us one of the more unusual, though still classically grounded enchiladas on Chef Ricardo Munoz-Zurita's menu: an enchilada of jamaica, or dried hibiscus flowers that tastes like a cross between pickled beets and cabbage. From there he takes us to Cafe Tacuba, a Mexico City Institution since 1912, where the signature Enchilada Especial is a comforting concoction with a chicken, spinach and poblano chile filling, bathed in veloute sauce and browned under the broiler. It's so good, he can't resist showing us how to make his one Cafe Tacuba-Style Creamy Chicken Enchiladas in his home kitchen in Chicago. Back in Mexico City, he brings us to another hallowed enchilada eatery, the Casa de las Enchiladas, for a lesson in the four "pillars" of enchilada construction: the tortilla, the filling, the sauce, and the garnish. Here, diners get to build their own enchilada by choosing from several options in each category. That gives Rick an idea: in the kitchen of his fine-dining restaurant, Topolobampo, he challenges his chefs to design a new enchilada special for the restaurant - each choosing a "pillar" to work on. In a fast-paced, reality-style race to the finish, the chefs create a surprising dish, proving in the process that a "whole enchilada" is greater than the sum of its parts. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    D-Day to Berlin [#102] Allies at War By the end of August 1944, Hitler's armies were in headlong retreat to the borders of the Reich, but the Allied advance was threatened that autumn by a long and bitter battle fought in the conference chamber - for the right to direct the final assault on Germany. This episode tells the story of the behind-the-scenes battles over strategy that threatened to drive a wedge in the Anglo-American alliance. The damaging personality and policy clashes between the Supreme Commander, the American Dwight D Eisenhower, and the commander of British forces in the field, Field Marshal Montgomery. Those who fought tell of the desperate allied struggle to capture the bridge over the Rhine at Arnhem, and of the terrible winter battles in the Bulge when Hitler's armies threatened to turn allied victory into defeat. duration 52:16   STEREO TVRE

This edition draws on the memories of those who fought and on reconstructions to tell the story of the last desperate battles inside Germany and of how the dream of a new Europe crumbled in the ruins of Hitler's Reich. On 16 April 1945 the Soviets began their final assault on Berlin and fourteen days later Hitler was dead. But even before the victory celebrations were over, a new chill gripped the alliance. A new European order had emerged, but it was dominated by another dictator - the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. duration 50:33   STEREO TVRE

    Nazi Hunters [#102Z] The Hunt for Martin Bormann Martin Bormann was vital to Hitler. Bormann made Hitler and the Third Reich rich through thinly veiled extortion schemes such as The Hitler Endowment Fund of German Industry. Bormann, Hitler's doctor Stumpfegger and Artur Axmann (the Head of the Hitler Youth) all left the bunker in Berlin together after Hitler's suicide on April 30, 1945. After Axmann left them at the Lehrter Station, Bormann and Stumpfegger disappeared. In 1972, workmen found two skeletons at the site of the Lehrter station. Analysis of the bones suggested they were Bormann and Stumpfegger. In 1998, a skull was subjected to a DNA test and proclaimed to be that of Bormann. However the skull was found to be full of a type of red clay which is only found in Paraguay. Where he went and how the body returned, still generates controversy. duration 51:19   STEREO TVPG
