    Rick Steves' Europe [#906H] Assisi and Italian Country Charm In the Italian countryside, Rick connects with rustic, traditional culture: enjoying an agriturismo (farmhouse inn), seeing how prosciutto and pecorino cheese are made, and hiking down into deep and ancient wine cellars. He ends in Assisi - the hometown of St. Francis - which retains its spiritual aura to this day. Like pilgrims, he explores its stony center before trekking to its awe-inspiring basilica, built on the tomb of the beloved saint. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    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.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#73] 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 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

    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#904H] Peru - The Amazon and Beyond Join Joseph as he ships out on a Peruvian Amazon journey from the jungle town of Iquitos, Peru and makes his way through one of the world's wonders. 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. A visit to the Amazon is a reminder of from whence we've come, what we've lost and the need to protect and preserve what is left. Experiencing it is a thrill. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
