    Rick Steves' Europe [#511H] Denmark: Beyond Copenhagen Using Copenhagen as a spring board, we'll visit the very best of Denmark. Aarhus welcomes us with its ruddy affluence, charming open air museum and eerily well-preserved ancient bog man. Roskilde impresses visitors with its royal burial church and the best Viking ship museum anywhere. And the delightfully quaint Isle of Aero beckons a bike ride among thatched cottages, "snooping mirrors", and cobbled alleyways that reminds us of the world of Hans Christian Andersen. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Sweet Dillard One of the most successful high school jazz bands in the country is in Broward County, South Florida, just steps away from highway I-95. This program chronicles the 2013-2014 school year of the Dillard Center for the Arts Jazz Ensemble, and their inspirational bandleader, Christopher Dorsey.
    The no-nonsense Dorsey lays downs the law from the first beat, calling out his students' tendency to form into cliques of black and white, automatically inhabiting separate sides of the rehearsal room, something he won't tolerate. "You don't have to like each other, but you're gonna respect each other," Dorsey declares.

    Thomas Paine's To Begin the World Over Again All the triumphs and tragedies of Thomas Paine's life are here in this film of the acclaimed one-man play To Begin the World Over Again: the Life of Thomas Paine, shot in front of a live audience at the Lillian Theatre, Hollywood. Thomas Paine, a man largely forgotten and greatly misunderstood, is ironically quoted by all and every political faction in America today. Yet his ideas about democracy, equality, slavery, pensions, healthcare, education and morality would have created a very different kind of nation if they had been acted on. He was a man who changed the world, only to have the world he changed turn its back on him. The man who ignited revolutions would die largely ignored and distained, yet he was at the epicenter of world events when he wrote his books, literally transforming nations through the power of his words. Thomas Paine was one of the world's most provocative writers and worst politicians, a very nearly deadly combination. He lived by the creed that "one must always speak the truth as one sees it, no matter the consequences" and what an extraordinary life it was. It is time to hear and discuss and debate Thomas Paine again, since, as he said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again". duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

One-fifth of the world's water and oxygen are produced in the Amazon Rainforest and thousands of species of birds, fish, reptiles, mammals and plants as well as hundreds of thousands of people thrive there. With all the pressures from logging and mining interests, it's also a wonder that this natural world still exists. Joseph sets out on a discovery that includes daybreak bird watching, night safaris in search of caimans, piranha fishing, canoeing the Amazon's tributaries, swimming with pink dolphins and close encounters with the "riverinos" - the people of the river. In the hopes that eco-tourism can slow the flow of the region's demise, Joseph embarks on an adventure that is fast becoming extinct.
