Hi, we watch globe trekker quite religiously, yet we are wondering if the show is a collection of only old episodes or are there new on going shows currently being produced? Thank you:)
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.
Globe Trekkeris currently feeding 27 episodes of season 11.  The feeds for season 11 started in April 2012 and will stop at the end of March 2013.  The website for Globe Trekker indicates that season 16 and Globe Trekker Around the World are currently in production but there are no dates yet.  I am sure we will keep recording their feeds so stay tuned.
 In case you want to peek for yourself here is the link to their website:
I hope this answers your question.
Thanks for watching.

I watched a travel show on China the other night (the one with the young woman as host), and they showed this guy cutting off the head of a snake and dripping its blood into a drink. I couldn't believe it! That's not what I want to see on PBS (or any place else). I was really freaked out. I know China is horrible to animals. That's why I never would want to go there. But do I have to be forced to see something like this unexpectedly?! I do avoid watching gratuitous violence in movies, on TV, or anywhere. I did NOT appreciate being unwittingly subjected to this.
CPT12 Response:
 Sorry for the late reply.  You were probably watching Globe Trekker?  This show often goes far beyond popular tourist destinations in order to give viewers a more authentic look at local culture. Presenters usually participate in different aspects of regional life, such as attending a traditional wedding, visiting a mining community, and eating and drinking local fare which may include scenes as you describe.
I imagine people from India would find leather shoes or eating beef offensive.  While some types of scenes may be disturbing they are key to the depicting the true culture of the area.  Different strokes, as they say.
Thanks for your feedback.

You sent an email to me today saying that the Globe Trekker episodes airing tonight were about "the making of GT". Yet you showed one on volcanoes. What gives?
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for your e-mail.
We had to make an episode substitution because our provider, APT sent us this advisory:

Please note the tape provided for the Sunday, July 1, 2012, 1900-2000ET /SD05 of GLOBE TREKKER #1114 was bad. The tape contained many creases and was noted to have audio issues about 24 minutes into the program.

Stations are advised to record the refeed being provided if you were unable to record a clean feed initially.

GLTK 1114 SD-Base Revision 001 The Making of Globe Trekker
(54:57) VOCA: Not Available
Tuesday, July 3, 2012
1700-1800ET /SD05

So as you can see, the tape was bad and the re-feed unfortunately was after our air date and promotion.  We apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused to our Globe Trekker fans.  I am also a big fan of Globe Trekker and was saddened also.  Hopefully we will get a good re-feed and be able to work it back into our schedule. 
We thank you for your patience and for watching and supporting Colorado Public Television.
