3:00:00 PM - Cuba: The Land That Time Forgot - Put up your tray table and fasten your seat belt as we make a mental flight into this once forbidden land. Cuba has been in the news this past year as America and Cuba have worked to normalize a relationship that has been estranged since 1959. Travis Tamerius will report on his recent trip there, showing you some video footage and sharing with you the rhythmic sounds of this magical place. You'll learn why this is an important moment in time for both countries and why millions of Americans are so eager to make the trip south.

A story of awakening humanity in the midst of violence, this is the spare yet haunting tale of an older Estonian man who cares for two wounded soldiers from opposite sides of the 1990s-era war in the country of Georgia.
