Burt Wolf: Taste Of Freedom

New Year's

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
The moment when the old year turns into the New Year is always dangerous - it is the instant when the past and the future meet. We prepare for it by taking stock of our own strengths and weaknesses and making plans for our future. In this program Burt Wolf explains why we celebrate New Year on January 1st, how noise keeps the evil spirits away, what makes a champagne cork go pop and why caviar is an acceptable food to eat on New Year's Eve but not on New Year's Day.
