Armenia - Ancient History and Modern Traditions, Part 1 (#905H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

While today Armenia is the size of Maryland, it once stretched from the Caspian to the Mediterranean Sea and from Persia to the Caucasus. Armenia is older than Christianity and within its ancient borders lies Mt. Ararat, the final resting place of Noah's ark, and although now lost to Turkey, the 16,000-foot mountain still stands as a symbol of Armenian persistence. The Armenian survival has been forged in the furnaces of war and genocide and their centuries of struggle is an integral part of their national identity, as is their language, religion and cultural heritage. In Part 1, Joseph crisscrosses Armenia to ancient sites where some of the world's oldest artifacts have been discovered. From roadside fruit stands to riverside wine stalls and bustling markets, Joseph is welcomed into local homes to witness traditional artisans at work and join in religious and communal celebrations that inspire, enlighten and reveal the Armenian heart and soul.

San Francisco's Changing Neighborhoods (#804H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

San Francisco is a city of neighborhoods and within its seven-by- seven mile boundary it seems every patch of ground has a name. In this episode Joseph explores six of the city's famous, little-known and changing neighborhoods in search of what distinguishes them from the rest and makes them must-visit San Fran attractions. He learns that each has a unique history and iconic attractions, shops and restaurants that add their special zest to the San Fran mix. He finds neighborhoods where people in the mist of change are working together to not destroy what they have, but make their neighborhood more what it is. The song says, "I left my heart in San Francisco" and the city has more than 800,000 residents and millions and millions of visitors who have left at least a piece of theirs here - and Joseph discovers that he is one of them.

Ireland - two countries, one people -- who in spite of struggles and troubles have a joy of life, which proves the human spirit has no borders or boundaries. On his explorations Joseph is reminded that wherever you are in Ireland one thing is constant - a warm-hearted Irish welcome. Perhaps, Irish writer James Joyce said it best when he said, "I feel more strongly with every recurring year that our country has no tradition which does it so much honor and which it should guard so jealously -- as it's hospitality." On Joseph's latest Irish adventure you'll discover along with him that North or South, East or West - wherever you are in Ireland - it is the best!
