    Globe Trekker [#1115] London City Guide 1 Jonathan begins his exploration of London with a double-decker bus tour of the city's famous sites, including the Tower, St. James's Palace and the British Museum.

He then takes a boat trip down the Thames to the Cockney heartland of the East End, where he meets a genuine cockney, Helen, who invites him to sample a good old East End snack - jellied eels. Jonathan ends his stay with a stop in Brixton, the black capital of Europe, visiting a traditional Caribbean barber. duration 56:04   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Globe Trekker [#1109] Globe Trekker Special: World War II in the Pacific The "Trekkers" explore the epic events of World War II by visiting key locations in the Pacific, a region where great battles where fought and military history was made. This episode begins at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, then moves to Chuuk Lagoon in Micronesia, the base for Japanese operations against Allied forces in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands and today a scuba-diving paradise, drawing wreck diving enthusiasts from around the world. Other sites include the Solomon Islands, Bikini Island, the remote village of Kokoda in Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Saipan and Tinian, a small island in the Northern Marianas archipelago and the take-off point for the Enola Gay's mission. The episode wraps up with a moving visit to Japan and the Nagasaki Peace Park. duration 57:19   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    American Masters [#2402H] John Muir in the New World Nearly a century after his death, John Muir is remembered and revered as the father of the environmental movement, the father of conservation, and the founder of the Sierra Club. It was this Scottish-American who believed it was our responsibility as citizens to care for and protect our natural surroundings. He taught us by example and passion - through his actions, his writings, his art - how to do so. Through his tireless advocacy, he almost single-handedly saved the Yosemite Valley of California from destruction and was the force behind the creation of the National Parks Service. Filmed throughout the majestic, breathtaking landscapes and wilderness traveled by Muir those many years ago, this documentary places our nation's most important asset in a cultural and social context. Muir's story could not be a more timely reminder of America's unique and, ultimately, threatened eco-system. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVG

    Donner Party: American Experience [#503] Of all the 19th-century pioneer stories, none exerts so powerful a hold on the American imagination as the tale of the Donner Party in the high Sierra Nevadas in the winter of 1846. That June, along with thousands of others, George and Jacob Donner and James Frazier Reed led their families west out of Springfield, Illinois, and headed for the "Promised Land" in California, 2000 miles away. Theirs was a prosperous caravan that would swell to more than 87 men, women and children. They packed huge wagons (one was two stories high), took food, hired servants and even sewed money between the covers of a quilt. When family leaders made the fateful decision to take an untried short cut to beat the coming winter, only half of them would come out alive. What began as a trek to the Western paradise became a terrifying tale of misery, death, madness and cannibalism. But there was also extraordinary bravery, as survivors made their way to California, after enduring the worst winter ever recorded in the high Sierras. Through family journals, newspaper accounts and interviews with historians and descendants of the party, the film recreates the Donner Party's now legendary journey. duration 1:26:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#151H] Rewriting The Story of America The life and work of Junot Diaz contains many worlds - and that makes him all the more worth listening to. His books, including National Book Award finalist This Is How You Lose Her and Pulitzer Prize-winner The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, journey between the old and the new, and between the America that was and the America we're becoming. Born in the Dominican Republic, but raised in New Jersey and American to the core, Junot Diaz is a spotter of the future, a curator of the past, a man of the here-and-now.
    Diaz joins Bill Moyers to discuss the evolution of the great American story. Along the way he offers funny and perceptive insights into his own work, as well Star Wars, Moby Dick, and America's inevitable shift to a majority minority country. "There is an enormous gap between the way the country presents itself and imagines itself and projects itself, and the reality of this country," Diaz tells Bill. "Whether we're talking about the Latino community in North Carolina, a whole new progressive generation of Cuban Americans in Florida, a very out queer community across the United States, or an enormous body of young voters who are either ignored or pandered to, I think we're having a new country emerging that's been in the making for a long time, and that I think for the first time is revealing itself more fully to the entire country."
