    Life On Fire [#101] Icelandic Volcanoes The 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland provoked economic chaos by paralyzing a major air traffic network for days. This eruption, however, was mild. Much more powerful volcanoes in Iceland are ready to wake up. Through spectacular aerial footage of this country, which is an accumulation of lava and ash, a maze of craters and faults, the episode tries to discern which volcano could wake up next and what the consequences of a major eruption are likely to be. Europe has come to realize that a colossal power sleeps beneath Iceland, while Icelanders for centuries have learned to live amongst their volcanoes. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    National Parks: America's Best Idea [#101H] The Scripture of Nature (1851-1890) In 1851, word spreads across the country of a beautiful area of California's Yosemite Valley, attracting visitors who wish to exploit the land's scenery for commercial gain and those who wish to keep it pristine. Among the latter is a Scottish-born wanderer named John Muir, for whom protecting the land becomes a spiritual calling. In 1864, Congress passes an act that protects Yosemite from commercial development for "public use, resort and recreation" - the first time in world history that any government has put forth this idea - and hands control of the land to California. Meanwhile, a "wonderland" in the northwest corner of the Wyoming territory attracts visitors to its bizarre landscape of geysers, mud pots and sulfur pits. In 1872, Congress passes an act to protect this land as well. Since it is located in a territory, rather than a state, it becomes America's first national park: Yellowstone. duration 1:56:46   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Paraiso for Sale What price would you pay for paradise? And who would you be willing to take it from? Panama is one of the most sought after real estate destinations in the world. The archipelago of Bocas del Toro, a gem hidden away in the Caribbean side of Panama, attracts retirees and developers from the US with its crystal clear waters and luscious trees. Filmmaker Anayansi Prado returns to her homeland to document the effects the fast-growing migration of American retirees and developers to Bocas del Toro is having on the local community. Feliciano, a Ngobe Bugle indigenous leader, organizes his people in an effort to protect their land from the government and foreign developers. Local boatsman Dario runs for Mayor with the hopes of bringing change to development in Bocas del Toro. American retiree couple Karan and Willy spent their life savings on their dream home in paradise, only to pay the real price for it later.

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

The HD lens brings to the fore the graceful and classic architecture of Buenos Aires, exemplified by the San Telmo neighborhood whose Sunday market is traditionally closed at sunset by an impromptu street band that marches through the streets, collecting dancers and revelers with its insistent drumbeats. At local tango parlors called milongas, Buenos Aires residents, known as portenos, lend an air of authenticity to the dance that grew up in the working class neighborhoods of the city. We wander the famous Recoleta cemetery in downtown Buenos Aires, where incredible monuments to the departed, including Eva Peron, feature winged angels and other fantastically decorated crypts.

    Infinity Hall Live [#203H] Fountains of Wayne If you love serious, brooding, sonically experimental musical artists, then Fountains of Wayne is not the group for you. Full of bright guitars, wry lyrics and catchy hooks, the foursome manages to create upbeat songs that both reference classic melodic British pop while staying wholly modern, American and slightly adolescent. Many music critics have dubbed the band's sound as power pop, but frontman and vocalist Chris Collingwood has other ideas. "A lot of people say that what we play is power pop. I don't think so. I would just say it's rock and roll." The genesis of Fountains of Wayne began in 1986 when bassist Adam Schlesinger and guitarist Chris Collingwood met as students at Williams College in Massachusetts. Sharing a love for British pop, the two friends played music together, as well as with other bands until eventually going their separate ways after graduation. Schlesinger found success as a songwriter penning the title track to the Tom Hanks film That Thing You Do! and earning himself an Academy Award and Grammy nomination. Then in 1996, Collingwood and Schlesinger - joined by guitarist Jody Porter and drummer Brian Young - came together with their first self-titled LP, followed in 1999 with Utopia Parkway. Both records found modest college radio success, but it was nothing compared to the mainstream commercial success the group saw in 2003 with Welcome Interstate Managers. The album's single "Stacy's Mom" charted well on Billboard's Top 40, supported by a hit MTV music video featuring model Rachel Hunter as the title character. The group's loyal alternative rock fan base was joined by legions of new admirers discovering the group's impossibly upbeat style of pop perfection. Their set at Norfolk's Infinity Hall is bright and bouncy and features fifteen song selections from their career. The catchy "Radiation Vibe" from their debut LP proves to be a crowd favorite. With the group's college alma mater just 50 miles north of the concert venue, the audience gets swept up in the nostalgic ode to Williams College, "Valley Winter Song." Though Schlesinger cautioned the crowd at the beginning of the concert from calling out for their biggest hit, Fountains of Wayne does eventually give the people what they want with a rousing performance of "Stacy's Mom." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
