SPY IN THE WILD - A NATURE MINISERIES: Meet the Spies

 

More than 30 animatronic spy cameras disguised as animals secretly record animal behavior in the wild. These “spy creatures” reveal that animals show emotions and behavior similar to humans – a capacity to love, grieve, deceive, cooperate and invent.

 

Meet the Spies
This “making of” episode takes us through the evolution of Spy Creatures from the original boulder cam to the penguin cams that inspired the spycams in this series.

 

DREAM OF ITALY
Piedmont/Lake Iseo

 

With its amazing landscapes, rich artistic treasures, deep ties to the past and warm people, it is no wonder that Americans dream of Italy as a travel destination. Join Italian travel expert Kathy McCabe as she explores the diverse areas of Italy. We’ll meet Italy’s chefs, artisans and historians who are deeply connected to their land, carrying on and preserving traditions.

 

Piedmont/Lake Iseo
Piedmont is the land of truffles and wine. Kathy tries to get truffle hunters Natale and Giorgio Romagnolo to reveal their secret hunting grounds, then tastes the precious white truffles they find. Then it is time to attend the World Truffle Auction where the bidding gets frenzied for these rare tubers. We visit Cascina Bruciata vineyard to learn about the hearty Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera wines that are produced in Piedmont.
