Viking River Cruises, Print Copy
It all began with the river. The Nile. The Yangtze. The Rhine. The Danube. The Volga. The Elbe. The Rhone. The Seine… Rivers gave birth to human civilizations on every continent. In fact, large river valleys were the “cradle of civilization” where these peoples emerged. And so to travel by river is to unravel the seeds of our existence.

And it is far more than that. Fascinating cultures. Enchanting destinations. Comfort. Convenience. And breathtaking scenery. All day, every day. There’s no better way to see the world than to travel by river.

Many of the world’s most beautiful cities and towns were developed along waterways, and arriving by water is still how they are best encountered. Simply sail directly to the heart of every destination and walk right off the ship.

To travel by river is to discover more of the places you visit.

Foodsaver, Infomercial
Host: Hi. I’m about to do something that no one feels good about doing: wasting food. Here’s the cheese we didn’t finish from our party—that’s about $5 worth. Leftovers the kids didn’t eat because they were “yucky”—$3. Half an avocado that didn’t make it into the guacamole—$1. And this is just the beginning. Take a look at this. Freezer burned steaks we never ate—$20. I bought these chicken breasts in bulk because I wanted to save money, and now they’re ruined—that’s another $15 I’m just throwing away. I know you’re familiar with this ritual. In fact, if you’re like me and every other typical American family, we throw away about $600 in spoiled and freezer burned food every year. Well, this year I’m committed to making my food dollars go farther. That’s why I just got the FoodSaver vacuum sealing system, and I can’t wait to start using it.

Calgon, Radio Commercial
Dorothy made a big mistake in the land of Oz.

Provence: Coastal Resort and Inland Paradise, Documentary
There are two distinctly different flavors that is now Provence: There are the famous tourist destinations—the beach resorts of the French Riviera: Marseille, Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez and Monaco; as well as the lively, bustling cities of Avignon, Arles and Aix-en-Provence.

There is also, however, the beautiful but harsh, rugged region that retains the old world values of simplicity and frugality. In this area, Haute Provence, you will not find hillsides covered with vacation villas, shops and galleries, or resort hotels. Instead you’ll hear the cork popping off a wine bottle in one of the town’s drowsy bistros, and you’ll discover markets and antique shops selling regional fabrics, ceramics, and foods, as well as chunky blocks of purple soap crafted from the areas lavender fields. Just about every village in Provence boasts its own workshops and boutiques dedicated to the local specialty.

The Danube River, Documentary
After the Volga in Russia, the Danube is Europe’s longest river and one of the most important transportation arteries on the continent. It stretches twice as long as the Rhine—almost 1,800 miles—through ten countries, and its waters drain into nine more. For this reason, it is considered to be the most international river on the planet.

Documentary Films, Script Excerpts

Mozart
Some of the world headlines in the early 1750s may have looked like this:
Young George Washington works as a land surveyor in Ohio.
Benjamin Franklin flies a kite and invents the lightning rod.
Samuel Johnson finishes his Dictionary of the English Language.
And Johann Sebastian Bach, the greatest genius of baroque music, dies.

At the time of his death in 1750, Bach wasn’t yet revered as a composer. Instead, his work was viewed as being old-fashioned in comparison to the new era of music that was just dawning, the Classical period. Bach’s genius would be recognized and his music revived by virtuosos who came after him. Mozart, for example, would become one of his most passionate admirers.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born six years after Bach’s death in Salzburg, then part of the Holy Roman Empire, now known as Austria. Mozart’s birth coincided with the birth of Classical music just as the Baroque period ended with Bach’s death. And although Bach composed an astounding number of compositions, over 1000 in his 65 years, Mozart would outpace him by writing over 600 pieces of music in half the time.

The Panama Canal: Controversy & Accomplishment
Although boats have existed since the Stone Age three million years ago, humans didn’t begin using them to transport cargo until about 3,000 BC. By then, cities and trade routes had developed, but the movement of goods was limited to only the navigable waterways. People are industrious, of course, and it didn’t take long for them to realize that by digging waterways of their own, they could connect even more of their cities to the sea.

The ancient Egyptians were the early leaders in canal building. It is believed that their first canal was used to transport heavy stone from the rock quarry to the Nile River. Only in the last few years have experts discovered evidence of a system of canals leading to the Giza Pyramids and the Luxor Temple. Instead of hauling the enormous obelisks and statues over land as we once believed, it’s more likely that the pyramids were constructed through the use of canals. The Egyptians are said to have built 80 canals, up to 100 miles long—the most famous of which connected the Nile to the Red Sea and would later evolve into the Suez Canal.

The Suez Canal, which opened in 1869, connected the Mediterranean with the Red Sea and allowed water transportation between the West and the East without having to circumnavigate Africa. French developer Ferdinand de Lesseps is credited with being the force behind the project. His background as a diplomat made him perfect for the international venture, and after its completion he was appointed by public opinion to repeat the success by building a canal through Panama. Forging a more efficient trade route between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans had been a long-standing goal, but now, with the increase of settlers to the west coast and the discovery of gold in California, it was a necessity.

The French broke ground in Panama in 1882, and although this new canal would be less than half as long as the Suez—only about 50 miles—conditions in Panama were far more challenging than the flat, sandy deserts of Egypt. Instead, workers in Panama faced rising mountains, impenetrable jungles, deep swamps, torrential rains, debilitating heat and humidity, virulent disease, and some of the most geologically complex land formations in the world.

It was for these reasons that all previous attempts to construct a canal through Panama had not just been abandoned, but they had been deemed impossible. Centuries before, in the early 1500s, when the project was first imagined, it had defeated the technical expertise of both Spain and the Holy Roman Empire. It should have come as no surprise that it would also defy the French, even under the leadership of their hero de Lesseps. Brutal working conditions, yellow fever and malaria claimed an estimated 22,000 lives and $260 million before the project finally went bankrupt seven years after first breaking ground.

Glacier Bay National Park
National Park Service Host:
Hi, I’m David Deyette, one of the rangers here in Glacier Bay, and it’s my sincere pleasure to welcome you to the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve – 3.3 million acres of magnificent wilderness, with thundering tidewater glaciers, as well as orca and humpback whales, sea otters, porpoises, harbor seals, moose, mountain goats, and black and brown bears, to name a few of the creatures that call this place home.

Welcome to the wonders of Glacier Bay. I hope you have an unforgettable journey.

Narrator:
The glaciers you will see began as snowflakes high in the upper reaches of the Fairweather mountains. As the snowfall accumulates and compresses into solid ice, gravity starts to take hold and it begins to move its way down slope at up to 10-15 feet per day. Once the ice begins to travel, it’s called a glacier, and as it travels it pulls rocks from the mountain face. Acting like a giant rasp, it cuts valleys and fjords through the bedrock as it moves downward. For some of Glacier Bay’s glaciers, the time it takes for a snowflake to go through this cycle and reach its end, or terminus, at the water’s edge is estimated to be about 200 years.

As you enter Glacier Bay, you will travel along shorelines that were completely covered by ice just 250 years ago. In fact, the advance of the mighty glacier pushed the Tlingit people out of Glacier Bay, their ancestral homeland. When Captain George Vancouver explored the area in 1794, he sailed past the Bay without even knowing it was there. All he saw was a gigantic wall of ice 400 feet high, 20 miles wide, more than 4,000 feet thick, and stretching north 100 miles to the St. Elias Mountains bordering British Columbia. However, a hundred years later, naturalist John Muir found that the glacier had retreated almost 50 miles. A retreat this rapid has not been recorded anywhere else in the world. This glacial withdrawal continues today except for several glaciers on the west side that are advancing, such as the Johns Hopkins Glacier, or remaining stable, such as the Margerie Glacier.

Within the last few generations as the glacial ice has retreated, newly bared land has changed from sterile piles of rubble—called moraines or bare rock—to a mosaic of pioneering plants. As mosses and lichens improved the soil layer with the build up of nutrients, the soil began to nourish and support alder, willow, cottonwood, and spruce. The continual plant succession led to habitation, first by small mammals such as marmots, shrews and voles, and then by larger mammals like bear, moose and coyote. Today, they roam throughout the recently de-glaciated terrains and wooded areas, feeding on plants, fish and smaller animals.

The Three Gorges Dam
Making far-reaching global impact has been a part of the Chinese legacy—first with the world’s longest continuously used written language system, and then, a string of world-changing inventions like paper, the compass gunpowder and printing.

On a more profound scale there is, of course, the Great Wall and the Grand Canal. And now, there is the Three Gorges Dam. When the Communist Party leaders broke ground on the Three Gorges project in 1994, they promised that China could build the world’s biggest dam, manage the world’s biggest human resettlement, and also protect the environment.

They projected that the dam would control flooding, increase river shipping, improve navigation safety, and cut transportation costs, all while providing electricity to rural provinces. They boasted that when the world’s largest hydroelectric station was fully operational in 2009 it would generate the equivalent of over 10,000 barrels of oil an hour and reduce their coal consumption by 31 million tons per year. The Chinese government insisted that it would be self-financing before it was even finished, and that all the debt would be repaid within ten years of full operation.
