7 p.m. | Candy Bomber

Hear the heartwarming true story of Colonel Gail “Hal” Halvorsen, the American pilot who brought joy to children living in the rubble of post-war Germany by dropping treats from his plane during the Berlin Airlift in 1948.

8:30 p.m. | Great Railway Journeys of Europe

Historian and archetypal Englishman Julian Davidson travels from the frozen wastes of Norway to the sunny shores of the Italian Adriatic coast, sampling the delights of some of the most dramatic and fascinating railway journeys in Europe.

In Norway he explores the capital Oslo before boarding the superfast intercity express train towards Bergen. This takes him high into the ice fields, crossing the highest point of any European railway. He takes a detour onto on one of the most spectacular pieces of track anywhere in the world called the Flamsbana, and then continues on to Bergen where he visits the home of composer Edvard Grieg.

Vienna is Julian's next port of call where he tours the world famous Ringstrasse and Shonbrunne Palace, discovering the facts behind the staggering wealth and achievements of Emperor Franz Joseph's Austro-Hungarian Empire. Hopping onto one of Austria's advanced Railjet passenger trains, he is whisked high into the Alps and the breath-taking mountain line known as the Semmering pass.

After a brief stop, he continues on to the end of the line in the beautiful Italian coastal town of Trieste. Glasgow is the second city of Scotland and the start of Julian's journey north into the Western Highlands and four hundred years back in time to learn of feuding kings and fractious clans. He visits the ancient town of Fort William where he climbs aboard "The Jacobite," a lovely old steam train which takes him on a line recognizable for being the "Hogwarts Express" in the Harry Potter film series. He ends in the port of Malaig, hopping off point for the Western Isles.

9:30 p.m. | A Farm Winter with Jerry Apps

My Music presents its first "Big Band" music retrospective featuring the biggest songs that got us through World War II and kick-started the baby boom with brassy legends that will take your members on a "Sentimental Journey". This is a very warm and nostalgic program that compiles the original hit makers and legends that define the GI and generations' memories. Peter Marshall (of the legendary Hollywood Squares) hosts this event, which for the first time mixes vintage live, rare, and unreleased footage from the Big Band days.

11 p.m. | Echoes of Creation

Emmy-award winning filmmaker Jan Nickman has created two revolutionary, visual-feasts of natural wonders, pioneering an entirely new genre of "Nature Immersion Experiences." His films are extraordinary rides that go beyond the discussion about nature and carry the viewer into the experience of nature. Echoes of Creation - as well as its companion film, Sacred Earth -- is exquisitely crafted to allow the viewer to "feel" nature, as if actually being there.

Each film is specifically designed for repeated viewing, to be watched again and again. The film has been successfully tested in pledge and this pledge event was created by KAET-Eight of Phoenix. Pledge hosts are Alice Ferris and Mitch Strohman. As KAET pioneered, the two films can compliment each other in a stack, or they can be used individually anywhere you need a shorter one-hour pledge program in your schedule. As the result of director Jan Nickman's pioneering Music-to-Picture technique, viewers can have a new experience with each viewing - in much the same way as music is enjoyed repeatedly.

Echoes of Creation was filmed in some of the most spectacular and often inaccessible locations of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and California's Sequoia National Park. The original soundtrack for Echoes of Creation was composed by Grammy-nominated composer David Lanz.
