Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions
In Taiwan, A Sense of Place - Part 1Series Website »
Episode Guide »
These two programs take a new approach to television travel. In each half-hour, three people, who have come to the United States from Taiwan and achieved considerable success, describe the reasons they immigrated to America, what they have accomplished in the U.S. and what they recommend to visitors in their native country. Chien-Ming Wang (star pitcher for the New York Yankees), Dr. Henry Lee (the world's leading forensic scientist who appeared as an expert witness in the O.J. Simpson trial), Dr. David Ho (foremost authority on AIDS research), and others tell us what to see, eat, drink, visit and shop for in Taiwan. Burt takes his video team to Taiwan and follows their advice. The programs give you a unique insight into Taiwan and are equally entertaining - either for those staying at home or for the seasoned traveler.
