Tough Trains: Bolivia (57 min)
episode numbers: 1619

Since the 1860s, Bolivia has lost land to all its surrounding countries, leaving it landlocked and without vital access to coastal ports. As compensation, both Chile and Brazil agreed to build railways from Bolivia to their coasts, but they have not received proper investment since. Zay Harding travels along these railways from the Brazilian Pantanal to the Chilean coast. The first stop is Bolivia's agricultural heartland of Santa Cruz, followed by the constitutional capital of Sucre. Zay then heads to Potosi, where he turns his hand to being a miner for the day, followed by a journey to Uyuni, where he visits the Salar de Uyuni - a salt flat rich in both salt and lithium. Zay heads to Bolivia's administrative capital, La Paz, before concluding his trip at the Pacific coast.

Unloading Carbs: Reducing Dietary Starch (26 min)
episode numbers: 109

Potatoes, pasta and rice are just a few examples of our daily intake of carbohydrates, and each is on the menu in this episode. But as we age, we should unload some of these excess starches and sugars in favor of better choices and more modest portions. That's why David and Elizabeth have chosen three excellent recipes to illustrate how unloading carbs doesn't mean eliminating them altogether. From the studio kitchen in Palm Springs, David prepares classic parsley potatoes with the skin-on, for added nutrition, and sauteed in healthful and flavorful olive oil. Then it's off to Scotland for an out-of-kitchen adventure to collect fresh cockles on Uig Sands before adding them to an extraordinary whole wheat fusilli vongole. The cockles boost the lean protein intake while the whole grain pasta equals complex carbs, which are better for us. And finally it's back to the studio kitchen for vegetable and brown rice pilaf, with added onion, carrot, zucchini, dates and walnuts, further reducing empty carbohydrates and enhancing flavor. Most importantly, registered dietician Elizabeth Kelsey educates viewers about the importance of unrefined carbohydrates in what we eat during her "Second Helpings" segment. Healthy, whole-food carbs are excellent brain food and important for gut health. She also emphasizes portion. Healthy meals should consist of a single carbohydrate, not two or three, and the portion should not exceed a quarter of our plate. Finally, David recaps the show with another inspiring "Earn What You Eat" segment, this time from a rowboat on Loch Morsgail, rather than a rowing machine in a sweaty gym.

These railways were built during the 19th century by the British to move troops and raw materials across the land, and ultimately played a role in the independence of the country a century later. The railway tracks are some of the oldest and longest you'll find anywhere in the world, and train travel doesn't get any tougher than this in a country with a population of over 1.2 billion. Indian Railways operations cover 29 states and seven union territories. It's now the world's fourth largest railway network, comprising 71,000 miles of track over a route of 40,000 miles.

These railways were built during the 19th century by the British to move troops and raw materials across the land, and ultimately played a role in the independence of the country a century later. The railway tracks are some of the oldest and longest you'll find anywhere in the world, and train travel doesn't get any tougher than this in a country with a population of over 1.2 billion. Indian Railways operations cover 29 states and seven union territories. It's now the world's fourth largest railway network, comprising 71,000 miles of track over a route of 40,000 miles.
