Friday @ 7:30PM -- "Low Riders"

Huell spends the day at the Los Angeles Super Show, one of the largest low rider car shows in the world. We see some amazing cars and speak with the artists who created them as well as with their owners.

Saturday @ 5PM -- "Holiday Classic: Poinsettias"

Albert Ecke immigrated from Germany to Southern California in 1902 and opened a roadside stall selling fruits and vegetables. By the 1920s his son Paul started selling some of the wild poinsettia plants that grew in the hills above their stall. From these small beginnings, it is now estimated that over 90 percent of all flowering poinsettias get their start at the Paul Ecke Ranch. Join Huell and Luis as they meet Paul, Paul Jr. & Paul III, who give them a tour of this amazing and brightly colored piece of California's Christmas Gold.



Saturday @ 5:30PM -- "Holiday Classic: Cornish Christmas"

In this holiday special, Huell celebrates the holidays with the descendants of the original Cornish Carol Choir of Grass Valley. Join them as they reenact their 1940 concert of traditional Cornish Christmas Carols, which took place 2,000 feet below ground in a gold mine, and was broadcast nationally on network radio.
