    Great Performances [#3806(] Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy Why has the Broadway musical proven to be such fertile territory for Jewish artists of all kinds? From Broadway's golden age, names like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Gershwin's, Arthur Laurents, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim immediately come to mind. More recently, Broadway babies such as Stephen Schwartz, Marc Shaiman and Andrew Lippa represent a sampling of the Jewish talents who continue to leave their mark on musical theater. Filmmaker Michael Kantor focuses on this central question left largely unaddressed in his Emmy-winning Broadway: The American Musical, combining interviews with performance footage, including many of the rousing anthems and timeless ballads America has loved for a century. duration 1:59:47   SRND51 TVPG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#117] 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

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#710] In Taiwan, A Sense of Place - Part 2 Part 2 of 2. These two programs take a new approach to television travel. In each, 3 people who have come to the US from Taiwan and achieved considerable success, describe the reasons they immigrated to America, what they have accomplished in the US and what they recommend to visitors in their native country. Chien-Ming Wang (star pitcher for the New York Yankees), Dr. Henry Lee (the world's leading forensic scientist who appeared as an expert witness in the O.J. Simpson trial), Dr. David Ho (foremost authority on AIDS research), and others tell us what to see, eat, drink, visit and shop for in Taiwan. Burt takes his video team to Taiwan and follows their advice. The programs give you a unique insight into Taiwan and are equally entertaining - either for those staying at home or for the seasoned traveler. duration 26:10   STEREO TVG

    Smart Travels - Europe With Rudy Maxa [#211] Classical Europe: Ancient Greece and Rome Here's where we pull together some of Europe's most rewarding sites from the classical world.

So we revisit some favorite classical sites around the Mediterranean, pick up some new stories and see what kinds of connections we can make.

    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#709H] Confessions of a Carnita-Vore Carnitas - chunks of pork cooked slowly in lard until they're golden and crisp on the outside and meltingly tender inside - are a weekend family tradition in Mexico. At the Medellin Market in Mexico City, Rick gives us an insider's look at how they're made every Saturday and Sunday in a huge copper cauldron, and served up with fresh corn tortillas and crispy chicharron (pork cracklings). But what if a carnitas craving strikes and you're not in Mexico on a weekend? No worries. Back in Chicago, Rick demonstrates his signature method for making fabulous carnitas right in a standard home oven. Then, thinking beyond pork, Rick shares a creative take on carnitas at the splashy seafood restaurant, Contramar, where the dish gets a deep-sea do-over with chunks of fresh-caught tuna. At his fine-dining restaurant, Topolobambo, Rick shares his own state-of-the-carnitas concept: sous vide pork (cooked very slowly in a vacuum-sealed packet) , shredded, formed into a loaf, chilled, sliced and pan-seared in a stunning modern presentation. Then, in his home kitchen, he riffs on that idea, making Duck Carnitas with Crunchy Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa, a dish inspired by the classic French duck confit technique. Instead of the traditional pork cracklings, he makes ultra-easy Crispy Cheese Chicharron, lacy cheese crisps toasted on the griddle, and takes us on a side trip to a Mexico City taqueria for a look at the dramatic, giant version of these "cheese cracklings." The elegant, yet casual, meal is served family-style with plenty of warm tortillas, so everyone can make their own succulent duck tacos. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#2613H] Victoria Falls Cutting across the Zambezi River, bridging the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world. In the dry season, this awesome force of nature divides two natural worlds -- the tranquil meandering river above the cascade, and the raging abyss of the gorge below. The upper river is idyllic, running shallow through sandstone hills and meandering around islands and reed-beds where elephants, hippos, and crocodiles thrive. In a single vertical drop the river plummets twice the height of Niagara Falls into the wild waters and heavy spray of the narrow gorge, where fish are found only by those who know where to look. Between the two worlds are treacherous cliffs and thick, mossy rainforests fed by river mists, home to baboons whose lives change with the seasons. When the rains fall, the rivers swell and the falls thunder. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG

The investigation profiles the Japanese soldiers and firefighters who were drafted to cool the reactors and were wounded when the reactor housings exploded; and the families living near the nuclear plant, who unknowingly fled in the same direction as the radioactive plume, exposing themselves to dangerously high radiation levels. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE
