Upcoming Airdates

Greece - Cruising The Isles

A Greek Island cruise sounds like a bit of a cliche, but not when Joseph and the crew of Travelscope make landing on some of the Goddess Athena's special children. There's plenty of ancient history and beautiful scenic bays to explore, but the real life of the voyage is the opportunity to pull the small cruise ship right up to the docks and discover the heart and soul of the Greek isles and the people who inhabit them. There's always a story to be told and a laugh to share around a table of great food, local wine and music.

San Antonio, Texas - More Than The Alamo

The finer things in life have always been a big part of the San Antonio experience and there's a slew of attractions to entertain the visitor - the Alamo, Riverwalk, fine dining, music, art - but it's San Antonio's diverse cultures and the way the people love to celebrate that is most impressive. Joseph returns to San Antonio, a town he's visited regularly since 1969, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and introduce viewers to some of his favorite things and shows them why it's said that San Antonio is every Texans' second hometown.

Port Aransas, Texas - Fun on the Texas' Coa

Joseph breaks away from heat for a cooling and relaxing stay among the gentle gulf breezes of the South Texas Coast. In every season the pleasures are easy in this laid back Southern town where often the best thing to do is nothing. The active visitor has plenty to keep them busy and Joseph tries his hand at swimming, fishing, kayaking, crawfish shucking and dancing a two step or three. In keeping with his joy of lifelong learning, he hops aboard a University of Texas research vessel for a cruise of the bay and a look it's denizens of the deep.

Rwanda - Among The Gorillas

Joseph follows in the footsteps of Dian Fossey when he treks into the mountain forest of the Parc National des Volcans. Within sight of the five Virunga Range volcanoes he travels in search of Rwanda's endangered mountain gorillas and golden monkeys. As with every Travelscope adventure, the journey includes cultural experiences in a local church, living museum, market, primary school and health clinic. In addition he takes part in Rwanda's monthly national day of service, a program that is the heart of Rwanda's dedication to attack the ideology of genocide at its root - ethnic division.

Rwanda - In Search of Chimpanzees

Joseph continues his Rwanda adventure and turns his attention to the region's other primate populations. Chimpanzee, Olive Baboons, Mona, Blue and Black and White Colobus Monkeys are just a few of the thirteen primate species that populate the Nyungwe National Park. The rest of the area's flora and fauna is equally impressive with more than 140 orchid species and 275 bird species, dozens of them found only in the highlands of Central Africa.
