    Kitchen Wisdom of Cecilia Chiang [#102H] The Long Walk In 1937, the Japanese invaded China and by 1939 they arrived in Beijing, seizing most of the large family compound and with it, Cecilia's idyllic and privileged youth. By 1941 there wasn't enough food for the family so Cecilia and her number five sister (she had nine in total), fled on foot through Japanese occupied territory. They walked more than 1,000 miles and it took almost six months to reach the safety of "Free China." In this episode, Cecilia joins Laurence Jossel, chef and owner of Nopa. Like Cecilia, South African-born Jossel came a long way to open a restaurant in San Francisco. Cecilia shows Laurence how to make "beggar's chicken," a whole, stuffed chicken wrapped in lotus leaves and then clay, and baked for at least two hours. It comes out of the oven with a hard shell that must be smashed with a mallet to open. duration 27:42   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Travelscope [#411H] Cappadocia, Turkey Cappadocia, in Turkey's rural heart, is a natural wonder and a cultural treasure chest. It is where the East and West seem to have collided and "fairy chimneys" -- fantastic volcanic ash formations -- have risen from the land and tower over beautifully carved valleys. As part of his journey through the Cappadocia Region, Joseph floats in a hot air balloon above the homes and underground cities that are carved out of the limestone rock of the Goreme Valley. He visits holy mosques and ancient churches, delights in Cappadocia's slower, gentler lifestyle and meets the artisans of the region's traditional arts and crafts -- rug weaving, ceramics and water painting. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Interviews include Seigneur Michael Beaumont, the feudal lord who inherited the island from his grandmother -- the infamous Dame of Sark. The program features an "improper" tea (thanks to the Americans) with a founding descendent, an interview with the island judge (who is not a lawyer), a look at the single-cell jail for drunkards, as well as demonstrations in pottery-making, chocolate-mixing, carriage driving and cave exploring.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#1] 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.

    Great Yellowstone Thaw [#103H] It's summer in Yellowstone, and with soaring temperatures and drought comes the risk of wildfires.

When a major blaze breaks out in the Beartooth Mountains, wildlife cameraman Jeff Hogan scrambles a team to see if the family of Great Gray Owls he's been following all year has survived. The beaver family now has three young kits. But Jeff is shocked when their mother suddenly moves them out of the family home. It's a risky journey over dams and upriver and not something he's ever witnessed before.

    Global Spirit [#210] The Call of Wisdom The ancient Greeks believed there was another dimension beyond logic and reasoning and they called it Sophia, or wisdom, which they believed to be the ultimate good.
