    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#711H] A San Antonio Christmas San Antonio is a festival town and Christmas is a most festive time of year. Joseph joins the locals and visitors to celebrate the season along San Antonio's famous river walk surrounded by songs, decorations and plenty of holiday cheer. Yet San Antonio is more than the River Walk, and Christmas in San Antonio means more than twinkling lights. In San Antonio, faith is real and "Feliz Navidad" is heard more often than "Merry Christmas." So, Joseph explores the city's spiritual roots at festive events like Mission San Jose's Mirachi Mass, as well as Christmas and Chanukah events held at the historic La Villita in the Arneson River Theater. The real meaning of Christmas is most evident when he gathers with San Antonio families in their homes to honor their heritage and practice their customs in traditional ceremonies such as the Tamalada - holiday tamale making - and in the city's San Fernando Cathedral at the midnight Serenada for the Virgin of Guadalupe. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Rudy Maxa's World [#104] Turkey's Turquoise Coast Viewers will be forgiven for thinking the southern Turkish coast on the Mediterranean Sea more closely resembles the Italian countryside or Greek islands. That's because the best Greek and Roman ruins are found in Turkey. Great, ancient towns of Ephesus, Antalya, Myra and Dalyan dot the Turkish coast, tempting visitors to step back into time when lavish Roman homes and markets dotted the landscape. Boarding a gulet, the traditional wooden Turkish boat, for a Blue Cruise, Rudy departs from the popular seaside town of Bodrum for a watery visit along the coast with stops to tour dramatic, historic ruins. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

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

    This Is The House That Jack Built In celebration of the 100th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's birth, the documentary THIS IS THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT chronicles his early years and examines his lasting legacy. The hour-long film touches on familiar themes of JFK's life, and his ascent to the presidency, his mistakes and triumphs. It also explores new and little-known stories, some that surfaced after the publication of Larry Sabato's novel The Kennedy Half-Century: The Presidency, Assassination, and Lasting Legacy of John F. Kennedy. Revelations include: a new CIA staffer and her discovery of a file on Oswald that soon thereafter went missing, and the Warren Commission's pressure on 19-year- old Buell Wesley Frazier, who drove Oswald to work on November 22, 1963. Presidential historian Robert Dallek lends his voice to the documentary, as do authors John T. Shaw and David Pitts, former Kennedy staffers Nancy Dutton and Sue Voelsinger, civil rights expert Tomiko Brown-Nagan, and Buell Wesley Frazier, among others. The one-hour film also explores why JFK is still relevant today, why we continue care about him, and why a new generation of young Americans find him utterly compelling. duration 57:30   STEREO TVPG
