    Rick Steves' Europe [#307H] Belgium: Bruges and Brussels Belgium is a land of contrasts. From the powerhouse headquarters of the European Union and Europe's grandest square in big-city Brussels, we go quaint with delicate lace and back lane bike rides in small- town Bruges. We check into a medieval hospital, savor the exquisite art of Memling, and climb a bell tower to get up close and fortissimo at a carillon concert. Then passionate chefs - creators of French fries and Europe's finest chocolate-give us a taste of their art. duration 27:46   STEREO TVG

They are asked to be prophets and to know how to analyze the volcanoes' slightest tremors. Around the world, these volcano doctors use their tools and knowledge to try to protect those who live beneath the Earth's fire. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG

    National Parks: America's Best Idea [#102H] The Last Refuge (1890-1915) By the end of the 19th century, widespread industrialization has left many Americans worried about whether the country - once a vast wilderness - will have any pristine land left. At the same time, poachers in the parks are rampant, and visitors think nothing of littering or carving their names near iconic sites like Old Faithful. Congress has yet to establish clear judicial authority or appropriations for the protection of the parks. This sparks a conservation movement by organizations such as the Sierra Club, led by John Muir; the Audubon Society, led by George Bird Grinnell; and the Boone and Crockett Club, led by Theodore Roosevelt. The movement fails, however, to stop San Francisco from building the Hetch Hetchy dam at Yosemite, flooding Muir's "mountain temple" and leaving him broken-hearted before he dies. duration 2:14:11   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Joseph travels to St. Moritz in the Engadine Region of Switzerland to discover the Romansch soul beneath the five-star hotels, the sparkle of high-end shops and the Rolls-Royce fashions. Along the way he gets above the St. Moritz's surface attractions by trekking into the Rhaetian Alps above 6,000 feet where there's mountain peaks, alpine meadows and "everyone is a friend." duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#99] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday.

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

    Rudy Maxa's World [#111] Mendoza, Argentina The heart of Argentine wine country is nestled in a valley beneath the snow-capped Andes whose iconic summit, Aconcagua, is the highest in the Western hemisphere.

    Infinity Hall Live [#204H] Ben Taylor It must be daunting to be an up-and-coming singer/songwriter creating thoughtful melodic pop when your parents are two of the most celebrated, successful singer/songwriters of their generation. Ben Taylor knows a bit about that. Son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, Taylor spent his early years traveling and even considering a career in gardening and agriculture before eventually giving in to his musical calling with extraordinarily engaging results. Raised in Manhattan but educated at various private schools in New England, Taylor took up the guitar at age 12. Before he had reached age 20, his cover of the Beatles' "I Will" had found its way onto the soundtrack of the 1995 Paul Reiser film, Bye Bye, Love. Though he spent some time questioning whether music was the path for him, he formed The Ben Taylor Band in 2001 and began recording his first album, Green Dragon, Name a Fox. Famous Among the Barns followed in 2003 with strong buzz and reviews, and a tour with folk songstress Dar Williams. Actor and musician Kevin Bacon produced and performed on Taylor's next record Another Run Around the Sun. In 2008, Taylor's cover of Macy Gray's "I Try" was used in a Honey Nut Cheerios commercial. Joined on the Infinity Hall stage by fellow guitarist David Saw, percussionist Benjamin Thomas and vocalist Beth Mendes, Taylor presents an irresistible acoustic set full of intimate melodies and soaring harmonies. Between anecdotes of his life on the road, relationships and his famous family, the 36-year-old singer offers an alluring mix of songs (and even a poem!) from his six albums and EPs. Taylor opens with the poignant title track off his most recent album, Listening, released in 2012. "You Must've Fallen" is a love song with an appealing reggae groove that seems to lull the audience into a tropical trance. And as a tribute to his famous mother, or "Mama C" as he calls her, he performs "Nothing I Can Do," a ballad full of enchanting hooks and chords. duration 56:52   STEREO TVPG
