    Two hour-long documentaries plus bonus clips: Basel & Lucerne—Quest for the Cross Roads investigates how a treacherous and daunting route over the Gotthard pass in the Alps, down through central Switzerland along Lake Lucerne and north to Basel on the Rhine River became a main trade route from Italy to Northern Europe and the world. How did this daunting route become the link for goods, ideas, medicines and people? Today Basel and Lucerne are hubs for commerce, enterprise, democracy and freedom. *Bronze Telly Award--Documentary Geneva and the Matterhorn: Quest for the Water Castle: Water is over-taxed and under-tended in many places around the world, but not in Switzerland. Quest for the Water Castle shows how this alpine haven has resisted temptation to bleed its most precious resource. We begin with stops at Lausanne, Nyon and Vevey along the shores of Lake Geneva. Then head up the Rhone River Valley to the Valais, Zermatt and the Matterhorn, and finally climb to the wellspring of the great river, the glaciers of the pristine Uri Alps. *Bronze Telly Award--Travel & Tourism
