Create Marathons

Settle in each weekend to watch your favorite shows in one binge-worthy format. Each Saturday and Sunday, Create airs a programming marathon centered around a theme — a holiday, a country, a particular food, even a single show. All the excitement of a marathon without leaving your couch!

Mar. 17 & 18

Spirit of the Emerald Isle

Escape to the Emerald Isle with Create this St. Patrick's Day weekend. The marathon kicks off with Globe Trekker’s spirited food tour of Ireland — as Bobby Chinn samples everything from oysters in Galway to Guinness in Dublin. Then, the late-great Julia Child makes classic Irish soda bread with the legendary food writer Marion Cunningham. And travel pros Rick Steves, Joseph Rosendo, Rudy Maxa and Colleen Kelly venture from Dublin to Dingle to take in Ireland’s top historical and cultural attractions.

Mar. 24 & 25

Joanne Weir incorporates seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs in a hearty panzanella salad. Julie Taboulie offers a Lebanese take a springtime classic — roasted leg of lamb. And Bob Ross paints a picturesque mountain scene of a chilly spring morning.
