·    9 p.m. SMART TRAVELS: ITALY VENETO & DOLOMITES

Share a night at the opera in Verona’s Roman arena, admire Giotto’s colorful frescoes in Padua and visit Palladian villas in Vicenza.

·    10 p.m. PENNY REVOLUTION (World Premiere Episode)

A new series, showing how a small amount of money can transform the lives of the more than one billion people who live below the international poverty line, earning less than $ 1 a day. The magic formula is known as microfinance, a revolutionary method of funding projects in the developing world, considered by many experts to be the world’s most effective anti-poverty tool. Penny Revolution demonstrates how an average loan of $ 100 can spur the economic transformation of a struggling third-world community.

The series profiles borrowers in rural Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Ecuador, as well as the wealthy benefactors who make their dreams a reality, including New York Mets General Manager Omar Minaya. Born in the Dominican Republic, Minaya understands – perhaps better than most – how the right skills, training and support can be the tickets out of the poverty that afflicts the underprivileged. Minaya’s commitment to raise funds for Esperanza International, a charity whose mission is to free children and their families from poverty and restore their self-worth, puts him in contact with a Dominican mother who dreams of starting a business to support her family and hopes for careers in baseball for her children.
