    National Parks: America's Best Idea [#104H] Going Home (1920-1933) While visiting the parks was once predominantly the domain of Americans wealthy enough to afford the high-priced train tours, the advent of the automobile allows more people than ever before to visit the parks. Mather embraces this opportunity and works to build more roads in the parks. Some park enthusiasts, such as Margaret and Edward Gehrke of Nebraska, begin "collecting" parks, making a point to visit as many as they can. In North Carolina, Horace Kephart, a reclusive writer, and George Masa, a Japanese immigrant, launch a campaign to protect the last strands of virgin forest in the Smoky Mountains by establishing it as a park. In Wyoming, John D. Rockefeller Jr. begins quietly buying up land in the Teton Mountain Range and valley in a secret plan to donate it to the government as a park. duration 1:57:30   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#63] 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 [#1610H] On The Road In America, Part 1 "On the Road in America" is a 3-part mini-series that reports on the history of migrations within the United States - not how people got here, but how and why they moved around once they were here.
    In the first program, "Tails of Hope and Tears," Burt retraces the big relocations of the 19th century. Native Americans were relocated and their ancestral lands turned over to European settlers. In addition, the government was in the process of giving away valuable mineral claims. And finally, there was the discovery of gold.
