Globe Trekker

Last night PBS aired an episode of Globe Trekker in which Megan McCormick visits Hong Kong and Taiwan (Ep #909). I'd like to know the original air date of the episode. Does anyone know where I can find it?

Whoa, I've missed a lot of eps. IMDB says 11 August 2008 and that it was ep. 9.10.

There's not going to be one specific 'original air date', because it's syndicated, but a quick search and my memory of the programme suggests it was filmed in around 2002 and first shown in 2003, which is why Taipei 101 wasn't fully complete when Megan visited.

moonshine: that date's definitely wrong -- look at the only other two air dates listed for series 9, and they're September/October 2003. Dating their first appearance accurately is a crapshoot, given that individual PBS affiliates can and do show episodes at different times.

tvrage also puts it between Sep and Oct 2003.

Whoops, yeah, it was already out on DVD in 2005... Sorry, Aanidaani.
