    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1503H] Nature Vs. Nurture For hundreds of years, people have been arguing the issue of Nature vs. Nurture. Are we the result of our youthful experiences or the genes we inherited from our ancestors? Recently, scientists have come to the conclusion that our genes interact with our environment and we change constantly throughout our lives. Our biology is actually altered by our environment. To take a look at this question, Burt talked to a group of people who had grown up in the structured culture of Taiwan and in their early years moved to the more open culture of the United States. Among the people Burt talks to are Steve Chen co-inventor of YouTube and Justin Lin who makes the Fast and Furious films. Burt then travels to Taiwan to take a look at what influenced their youth. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    88 Days in the Mother Lode: Mark Twain Finds His Voice Through Mark Twain's own words from his letters home, his short stories, books and his autobiography, discover how three months is California's Sierra Nevada Mountains led to the writing of "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" and helped transform Sam Clemens into Mark Twain.
    In November of 1864, just days after his 29th birthday, Samuel Clemens posted a $500 bail bond for a friend with money he didn't have. The friend jumped bail and Clemens had to escape San Francisco. He sought refuge in a cabin on Jackass Hill in Tuolumne County. He would spend the next 88 days on the hill and in nearby Angels Camp drinking a little, smoking a little, mining a little and listening a lot - to people and the stories they told.
    More than just "the place he heard the story about the frog," Clemens' 3 month stay in the Sierra Nevada Foothills would help change the course of his life and he would write about his time there in stories, sketches and essays for the rest of his life. Filmed on location in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties where the actual events took place, this documentary takes an in-depth look at those pivotal 88 days in the life of Sam Clemens and the career of Mark Twain.

    Mark Twain's Journey to Jerusalem: Dreamland MARK TWAIN'S JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM: DREAMLAND retraces Mark Twain's footsteps as a cub reporter on a bold adventure sailing around the Mediterranean and throughout Europe in 1867, with Jerusalem and the Holy Land as his ultimate destination. Narrated by Martin Sheen, the documentary reveals Twain's deep rooted and complex relationship with religion. Having regularly attended church services as a child with his devoutly Christian mother, and thoroughly educated on Christianity and the Bible, his childhood imaginings of the Holy Land are confronted with a vastly different reality; the monuments, cities, and landscapes aren't as grand as the Scriptures led him to believe. He also finds himself disillusioned by the poverty and squalor he witnesses beneath the "splendor" of European culture. The film chronicles Mark Twain's exploits on his landmark journey and establishes Twain as the voice of America - funny, sarcastic, and powerfully opinionated. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    The Verdigris: In Search of Will Rogers When singer-songwriter Beau Jennings set out to make his latest album, he thought the subject would be about his experiences in Brooklyn, NY, his current home.

After writing several songs about the American icon, Jennings decided to further explore the source of his inspiration with a cross-country road trip, resulting in the sentimental documentary THE VERDIGRIS: IN SEARCH OF WILL ROGERS. Named for the river Verdigris that runs through the Oklahoma hometowns of both Rogers and Jennings, the documentary is a unique rendering of Rogers' legacy. Jennings retraces the steps of the legendary Oklahoman, visiting locations where significant milestones occurred in Rogers' life, performing original songs about those events, and interviewing people who shaped or were influenced by the "Cherokee Kid." duration 57:35   STEREO TVG
