RICK STEVES HOLIDAY SPECIALS
The Holy Land & European Christmas
Travel with host Rick Steves to the Holy Land, the crossroads for three great religions. Visit the major sights and delve deeper to better understand and empathize with both peoples. And all along the way, he learns about security walls, disputed settlements, and the persistent challenges facing the region as Israelis and Palestinians learn to coexist peacefully. Then follow him and explore the rich history and traditions of the holiday, visiting six European countries. You'll enjoy family visits and tasty treats, Christmas markets, candlelit chapels and grand cathedrals, holiday music grand and intimate, all in an evergreen tradition for great family viewing. Celebrate the holidays on PBA30 with the Boston Pops and Spelman-Morehouse Christmas concerts! The holiday concerts will be aired back-to-back for an evening of holiday spirit and song. The Boston Pops holiday special features guest appearances, the orchestra's signature rendition of Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride" that was written for the orchestra, and a visit from the one and only Santa Claus. Then join the combined choruses of the Spelman and Morehouse College Glee Clubs as they present a selection of Christmas carols, anthems and African songs for their 90th annual concert.
