America's Musical Journey ()

Cast: Aloe Blacc, Gloria Estefan
Runtime: 40 mins.

In America's Musical Journey, Aloe Blacc traces the footsteps of Louis Armstrong from New Orleans to Chicago and beyond, where his impact on jazz and other American musical forms was profound. Born at the turn of the century in New Orleans, a grandson of slaves, Louis Armstrong learned to play the cornet in a boy's home. A creative prodigy from the start, Armstrong revolutionized jazz with his adventurous solos, bluesy phrasing and bold improvisational style, becoming one of the most influential musical icons of the 20th century.

Amazon Adventure (NR)

Cast: Robert Daws, Billy Postlethwaite
Runtime: 45 mins.

Amazon Adventure tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates' fascinating 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest as a young man who risks his life for science in the 1850's. Bates unearths the major discovery of the phenomenon of mimicry, whereby certain animals adopt the look of others that helps them deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive. Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the "beautiful proof" for Natural Selection.

The power of America's national parks is undeniable.
