The other night we watched one of the Globetrotter videos on Public Television. It wasn't a tour of Formosa or even France. No, it was a tour of the Old West, an overview of places and times like the connecting of the Trans-Continental Railroad and the Golden Spike, a short life of Thomas Parker from Circleville, Utah, also known as Butch Cassidy. And there was more on Deadwood, South Dakota, and Buffalo Bill and the Pony Express, and even more. But I don't recall anything about Texas but a mention of the Alamo. There was some on the California Gold Rush and the Silver Boom in Nevada.
Anyway, it was an entertaining program, which we (the wife and I) enjoyed watching. You never know what you'll see on Public Television. The Channel entertains the urchins most of the day and provides other stuff for the adults(?) the rest of the time with programs like Nova and Nature and that other travel guy who does Europe..
