The middle of the week has arrived and that means another preview of TV travel programs on tonight (Nov. 9) on WYCC-TV in Chicago.

7:30 p.m. — “Travels With Darley” — The focus is on Little Rock, Arkansas. There’s a Segway tour of the River Trail and a bike ride through the SoMa neighborhood and Quapaw District, home to historic houses. The show also checks out the Vogel Schwartz Sculpture, Clinton Presidential Center, Historic Arkansas Museum and Museum of Discovery.

8 p.m. — “Rick Stevee’ Europe” — Rick is in Romania and tours Bucharest, Transylvania and Maramures.

8:30 p.m. — “Travelscope” — Host Joseph Rosendo takes a trip to Switzerland’s Grindelwald Valley which is shadowed by the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau peaks. He checks out street fairs and festivals, a cheese-making demonstration and the car-free mountain town of Wengen. Rosendo also takes a train journey to the highest train station in Europe, the Jungfraujoch.

9 p.m. — “Globe Trekker” — This week’s episode is a tour of northern England. It starts in rural Suffolk and stops in Cambridge, Sheffield, Bradford and York. I was very much impressed with York’s old world charm when I visited England. The program also includes a boat trip to the Farne Islands, the ancient sanctuary of Saint Cuthbert.
