    Focus On Europe [#3130] Stalking on the Rise In Germany We'll take a look at a place where burials are done free of charge, some villages where harvesting is still carried out with an oxcart, and an island where residents are convinced they're living on holy ground. Our European Journal reporters have set out to gather stories from some of the hidden corners of the continent - and it's all here on our new summer series, "Europe on the Edge". The details:
    SERIES: EUROPE ON THE EDGE - TURKEY/POLAND: GOOD RELATIONS - Poles facing political persecution have sought refuge in Turkey for centuries. During the Crimean War in the mid-nineteenth century, Polish emigres even founded their own village there. Called Polonezkoy, it's located in a nature preserve just outside Istanbul. Even today, the village - which is called "Adampol" in Polish - features half-timbered houses, fenced-in gardens, and a Catholic church. The descendants of the original immigrants continue to uphold many of their old customs, even though they've now been Turkish citizens for three or four generations.
    BULGARIA: PATIENCE IS RUNNING OUT - Protesters in Bulgaria have been packing the streets, demanding new elections, for weeks now. Prime Minister Plamen Orescharski's government only recently took office, but its reputation is already seriously tarnished. Many in Bulgaria are fed up with ongoing corruption and nepotism at the top. Before the most recent election, Orescharski's party and the Coalition for Bulgaria had promised to raise the minimum wage and increase assistance to mothers of young children. After the election, these promises were soon rescinded. The previous government had also been toppled by protests sparked by economic issues. Bulgaria is the poorest country in the EU, and many young and educated people choosing to leave their homeland.
    GERMANY: THE PROBLEM OF STALKING - More and more people in Germany are becoming victims of stalking. Victims' associations say that today's online and communications media have only exacerbated the problem. Today, stalkers can pursue their victims by text message, Facebook and the Internet. It's estimated that around 900,000 Germans are being harassed in this way. The majority of victims are women, who are targeted mainly by acquaintances and former partners. But legal options are limited, and only a small percentage of the cases are ever brought to trial.
    ITALY: THE PLIGHT OF TOMATO FIELDWORKERS - Three euros an hour, or one euro cent per kilo - seasonal laborers on Italy's tomato fields earn meager wages. Many come from Bulgaria, Romania and Senegal - and all hope they'll see a better future. They carry out backbreaking labor under the scorching sun, live in desperate conditions, and are often mistreated by their supervisors. They don't have the money to return home, and find themselves stranded and exploited without mercy - all to keep supermarket prices at rock bottom. Many have likened the conditions of these tomato farm workers as a form of modern slavery.
    PORTUGAL: SUMMER, SUN AND TAX SAVINGS - Beautiful beaches, sunshine, and unspoiled nature draw holiday-makers to the Algarve. Now foreign pensioners will have even more reason spend their retirement years there. A government-sponsored initiative aims to encourage foreign citizens to buy a house and live in Portugal. Called "Living in Portugal", it's especially attractive for pensioners from elsewhere in Europe. Foreigners who move to Portugal and live there at least 183 days during the year pay no taxes in Portugal on foreign income. The government hopes the initiative will help support the country's ailing economy.

  • 5:00 am
    Story of India [#101] Beginnings Michael Wood's fascinating journey through the history of the Indian subcontinent chronicles the incredible richness and diversity of its peoples, cultures and landscapes; outlines the originality and continuing relevance of its ideas; and relates some of the most momentous and moving events in world history. Beginning with the first human migrations out of Africa, using DNA and climate science, ancient manuscripts and oral tales, Wood takes viewers from the tropical backwaters of South India to lost ancient cities in Pakistan - the scene of India's first civilization. He travels on to Turkmenistan in Central Asia, where dramatic new archaeological discoveries cast fresh light on India's deep past. Finally, Wood travels to the vibrant cities of the Ganges plain, where India's ancient myths and histories still intertwine. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Story of India [#102] The Power of Ideas Michael Wood's epic series moves into the revolutionary years after 500 BC - the Age of the Buddha. Traveling by road and rail between the ancient cities of the Ganges plain, he tells the tale of the young prince who gave up the good life and became the Buddha: "India's first and greatest protester." Then, moving by army convoy through Northern Iraq and down the Khyber Pass into Pakistan, Wood shows how Alexander the Great's invasion changed the course of India's history and inspired her first empire. He visits India's earliest capital, Patna, and using archaeology, legend and "India's Rosetta stone," explains how the ideas of the Buddha were turned into political reality by the great Indian emperor Ashoka - "one of the most remarkable figures in history" - who sowed the seeds of "history's most dangerous idea." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Story of India [#103] Spice Routes & Silk Roads/The Growth of Civilization Michael Wood takes viewers to India in the days of the Roman Empire. In India's tropical deep south in Kerala, the spice trade opened India to the world - and gave the world a recipe for dormouse stuffed with pepper! Wood takes one of the great old sailing boats that still cross the Indian Ocean carrying pepper and cloves. He discovers the lost site of Rome's greatest trading port in India and visits the fabulous ancient city of Madurai, with its giant temple and its gold and silk bazaars that were a delight for visiting Greek traders - and still are today. Moving north, Wood takes the Silk Road from the deserts of Turkmenistan through the Khyber Pass into Pakistan to unveil the forgotten Indian empire of the Kushans, who opened up the Silk Road and built a lost Wonder of the World in the caravan city of Peshawar. "In today's world, with the Asian powers rising again," says Wood, "this time looks like the precursor - the first globalization." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
