    Rick Steves' Europe [#510H] Copenhagen Denmark's capital is the most fun-loving in Scandinavia. As we get to know Copenhagen, we'll discover reminders of its Viking history and symbols of its proudly independent ways today. We'll stroll through Europe's first great pedestrian zone, ogle crown jewels in the palace and take a bike ride through a famous hippie squatter community, finishing at Copenhagen's full-time carnival, Tivoli Gardens. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
  • 12:30 am
    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1611H] On The Road In America, Part 2 In the second program, "Pack Up Your Troubles," Burt continues the story. This time it's around the theme of wars and crisis, covering the two world wars and the depression. Wars often move people around. The labor force demands of WWI accelerated the move from farms to cities and initiated the Great Migration out of the South. The Depression slowed migration as worried people stayed close to home. The Dust Bowl migration, driven by environmental as well as an economic crisis, was the memorable exception. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Werewolf of the Bayou: Theater of the Mind It is 1940, and ace newspaper reporter Margo Mason heads to the Louisiana swamps to investigate a series of strange murders and an ancient curse centered around an archaeological dig and a strange skeleton unearthed: The body of a human, the head of a wolf. And chilling howls at night under the full moon. The local swamp witch says it's the rougarou werewolf, returned for vengeance. But who is the werewolf? And who will be its next victim? duration 58:41   STEREO TVG

  • 4:00 am
    Invisible Man: Theatre of the Mind KTWU's Theatre of the Mind presents an all-new production in the style of a 1940's radio play. Based on the classic story "The Invisible Man" by H. G. Wells, adapted by playwright Philip Grecian. In the village of Iping, in a blinding snowstorm, a heavily muffled stranger arrives at the local inn demanding a room. His head is bandaged and his eyes concealed behind blue goggles. His possessions arrive the following day - scores of strange glass bottles and boxes of books. All is well, until the landlady begins to make inquiries, the stranger loses his temper, strips off his wrappings and is... invisible! The chemicals used to achieve invisibility have begun to affect his mind, and he plans a reign of terror, using his invisibility to subjugate the village and eventually, he claims, the nation. Completely mad, the Invisible Man goes on a rampage. Not one is safe. As has been the custom with these dramas, the actors often play multiple roles and employ vintage microphones to simulate radio's Golden Age with live physical sound effects. They portray period radio performers, and so the mysterious presence of the invisible man is created through "theatre of the mind" in the imaginations of the listening audience. duration 57:36   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#19] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers.

The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46
