Follow the fall of the Byzantium and the rise of Islam at the city’s ancient wall, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. To escape the city bustle, we’ll board a boat on the churning Bosphorus, make friends over backgammon, and try a traditional bath.   Note: If you love travel shows, Rick Steve’s Europe airs weekly on Saturdays at 4:00 p.m.

Colorado Experience: Suffrage (Sun. June 14 @ 5:00 - 5:30 p.m.)

On November 7, 1893, Colorado became the first state in the nation to grant women’s suffrage by a single issue popular vote, and the following year the first three female state legislators were elected. This proud achievement was the result of nearly 15 years of struggle and dedication. Tenacious Coloradans across the state shouted, “Let the women vote! They can’t do any worse than the men!” as they marched door-to-door in churches, mining towns and farming communities. Join the movement in this episode of Colorado Experience.
