    History Detectives [#202Z] Monopoly/Japanese Internment Camp Artwork/The Lewis and Clark Cane * Monopoly - A man in Delaware has an old board game that bears a remarkable similarity to Monopoly, but was made 20 years before Parker Brothers patented their creation. Could he own the earliest version of the world's best-selling board game? To solve this mystery, HD investigates Monopoly's history and discovers a surprising story. Rather than originating in the Great Depression of the 1930s, Monopoly could be a much older game, reflecting an economic argument that - if followed - would have created a radically different economy from today's.
    * Japanese Internment Camp Artwork - In a San Francisco historical archive, an intern recently discovered a set of 10 postcard-size watercolors of what appears to be a prison camp. Piecing them together, the intern was surprised to find they were painted on the back of a Japanese-American internment notice from 1942. What is the story behind these paintings? Who was the artist? And what was his or her fate? HD travels to the West Coast to solve the puzzle, uncovering the dramatic story of one of the 120,000 Americans citizens who spent years behind barbed wire, guilty only of being of Japanese descent.
    * The Lewis and Clark Cane - A Minnesota man has an old wooden cane that has been in his family for as long as he can remember. The family tale is that Meriwether Lewis and William Clark gave the cane to his ancestor in return for assistance they received during the famous Corps of Discovery expedition. HD attempts to find out if the owner of the cane is related to this early St. Louis fur trader. Is it possible that the family legend is true? Was this cane a gift from Lewis and Clark?

    Global Spirit [#109H] Oneness: The Big Picture While deeply embedded in the core teachings of many great religions and almost all mystical and native traditions, the concept of "Oneness" or "Unity Consciousness" is now being explored by a growing number of scientists, who are applying the principle of Oneness to all life and the exquisite mechanism through which all living systems function and relate. In this Global Spirit episode, Deepak Chopra, a physician and best-selling author of texts on mind-body healing, shares his philosophical insights on Oneness, with Riane Eisler, an anthropologist and, best-selling author (The Chalice & the Blade). Against a background of filmed interviews with teachers from all religious traditions, audiences can witness a memorable, occasionally contentious discussion that attempts to "connect all the dots". duration 53:22   STEREO TVG

    Global Spirit [#110H] Dreams, Visions and Realities Human beings have always been fascinated by their dreams, and have long debated their meaning, purpose and significance. As scientists investigate the chemical and biological origins of dreaming, many indigenous cultures explore their dreams as a deeply spiritual connection that links humanity with the core of all life. In this Global Spirit episode, host Phil Cousineau invites Jungian psychologist Dr. Stephen Aizenstat and Aboriginal elder "Yidumduma" Bill Harney into a conversation about dreaming as a connection to meaning in life. Vivid film sequences from the Australian outback mix with western imagery from Steve's Jungian tradition. The two guests share an engaging conversation of creation stories, personal anecdotes, and deep, memorable sounds from Bill's djeridoo. duration 54:56   STEREO TVG
