Brianna Barnes and Jonathan Atherton travel to Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands. They start by exploring the compact city centre, built around a network of beautiful canals overlooked by the gabled mansions of 17th century merchants. Whilst Jonathan looks around using the locals' favourite means of transport, the bicycle, Brianna takes a tour of the waterways with the free-spirited Saint Nicolaas Boat Club. Amsterdam is renowned as one of the world's most liberal cities, and en route they check out the city's famously tolerant attitude to soft drugs like marijuana, and the nefarious goings-on in the city's infamous Red Light District.

An international summit meeting, “Travel Guide” features US guitarist Ralph Towner, Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, and Kazakhstan-born and Australia-raised guitarist Slava Grigoryan. Towner has been a key ECM recording artist for more than 40 years, while Muthspiel and Grigoryan make label debuts here. Grigoryan is well known as the preeminent Australian classical guitarist of his generation, and Muthspiel’s been an important figure on the transatlantic jazz scene for two decades, with his own bands and as a contributor to groups of Gary Burton, Paul Motian and many others. What all three guitarists share is a strong feeling for structure, a sense for lyrical improvisation and a feeling for space, harnessing instrumental technique to very graceful musical ends. Repertoire features five compositions by Towner, and five by Muthspiel.

"In a world that seems to be cracking at the edges, how do we ensure our survival? How do we ensure we can provide for our children and how do we face the possibility of a global economic meltdown, a world where all the conveniences of modern day are gone including the necessities of survival? Dowsing is an ancient practice whose origins are lost in long-forgotten history thought to date back more than 8,000 years. Reliefs from China and Egypt illustrate ancient people engaging in dowsing by using forked tools, rods and instruments. Dowsing was mentioned in the Bible when Moses and Aaron used a ""rod"" to locate water.
