    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5440] *The 2016 race for the White House continued to take shape this week as two new candidates -- Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Marco Rubio -- officially entered the race. The Democratic frontrunner followed up her low-key announcement video by driving from New York to Iowa to meet with voters in small groups, while Rubio announced a day later in his home state of Florida with a major generational appeal designed to wow tea-party faithful. Dan Balz of The Washington Post returns from his latest trip to Iowa to report on the strategies for the newest candidates and how they're being received in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.
    *Back in Washington, lawmakers reached an agreement in the ongoing debate over Iran's nuclear program that will require any U.S.-negotiated deal to be reviewed by Congress before economic sanctions can be lifted. Manu Raju of POLITICO will report on how lawmakers were able to get bipartisan support and remove the threat of a presidential veto. Plus, he'll assess the changing political landscape 100 days into the Republican-controlled Congress.
    *This week also marked a major step in restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba, beginning with a historic meeting between President Obama and Cuban President Ra?l Castro -- the first face-to-face meeting between the nations' leaders in half a century. Obama followed up his meeting by announcing plans to remove the island nation from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. Peter Baker of The New York Times examines how the warming with Cuba is part of a broader effort by the president for rapprochement with some long-time enemies.

    Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, MD This special is based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof that Your Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. It is a meticulously researched explanation of the critical role our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play in our health and wellbeing - and how we can harness the power of our minds to enjoy great health and longevity with specific, easy-to-do steps.
    Part 1 covers topics such as why Western medicine is very important; your brain is most important organ for your health; "Learned helplessness"; and asking what does your body need in order to heal?
    Part 2 includes an explanation of the placebo effect with examples; explanation of the nocebo effect and of the role the amygdala plays in the brain and how it controls stress; understanding how the body has its own self-repair mechanisms, which are under the influence of the nervous system; and why the body's self-repair mechanisms only work when the relaxation response is activated.
    Part 3 covers the importance of reducing stress response for self-healing and optimal health; Dr. Rankin's groundbreaking new wellness model: The Whole Health Cairn; why physical health is only one aspect of whole health; the difference between being healed and being cured; and healing ourselves, healing health care.
    Dr. Rankin is a trained ob-gyn who has emerged as one of the newest thought leaders in the mind/body medicine arena. Her work has been featured extensively in national media, including O magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Health, Women's Health, Self, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She is also the founder of The Whole Health Medicine Institute, dedicated to teaching doctors how to provide truly integrative health and wellness to patients. Its Board includes Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Christiane Northrup, who says about Lissa, "What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine - the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well."

    The Italian Americans [#101B] La Famiglia/Becoming Americans La Famiglia (1890-1910) - A brief history of the Italian Risorgimento provides the context for the great flight from the mezzogiorno region. By the late 19th century, Italians begin to put down roots and "Little Italys" spring up in urban areas throughout the U.S. But the first generation, holding onto language and culture, is branded "outsiders" and mistrusted by non-Italians. In New Orleans, this mistrust explodes into violence and 11 Italian Americans are murdered by an armed mob. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, a second-generation Italian American saves his community from disaster while creating one of the greatest financial institutions in America. duration 1:22:35   STEREO TVPG-V

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

    John Denver: Country Boy At the peak of his fame, in the 1970s, Denver was the most popular singer in America. His albums sold more than 100 million copies, he had sell out concerts, his TV specials got top ratings and he was named poet laureate of his adopted Colorado. Yet the man, who brought happiness to millions, suffered with depression, was slated by the music critics and was filled with insecurity. He also longed for approval from his father - a military hero.
    In a landmark documentary we explore the private life and public legacy of America's Everyman. With exclusive accounts from those closest to him, we reveal the man behind the music in an intimate profile to mark his 70th Birthday Anniversary. We talk to pivotal people from his former wives and managers to his son and brother. We meet the musicians who toured with him for decades and the friends who knew the real John Denver.
    On the face of it, John was a wholesome country singer who penned pleasant songs with lyrics that were ridiculed by some for their simplicity. But there were extremes to Denver's character - incredible highs reflected often in his music - alongside more private lows as he tried to grapple with the conflicts in his life. He could not live without an audience, he loved and needed to tour and yet dreamed of the perfect home and family life that his ever-mobile childhood had denied him. He may have written one of the greatest love songs about his first wife Annie, but it was not enough to keep them together- Annie filed for divorce on their 15th wedding anniversary.
    But while John struggled with his private woes, his music had become the warm milk of a generation and it was actually the BBC who gave him his first television break - a primetime six part series in 1973. In Britain Denver learned to feel at home in front of a camera and his music took off in the UK. It became the soundtrack to the self- sufficiency movement when ideals of the 'good life' and living off the land spurred families into moving to the countryside. To his British fans and others around the world, the appeal of his music was its accessibility. But while he sold millions,the press still pulverized him: "contrived and controlled Americana, " "Mr. Clean," "Plastic Pollyanna," were just a few of the comments. John was stung by the barbs of the critics and both Annie and Jerry Weintraub say John never truly felt he was good enough.

    Buddha Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha. He was a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a big, shapely fig tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth. He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that others could find too. Award-winning filmmaker David Grubin tells the story of the Buddha's life, a journey especially relevant to our own bewildering times of violent change and spiritual confusion. This documentary draws upon the work of some of the world's greatest artists and sculptors, who across two millennia have depicted the Buddha's life in art rich in beauty and complexity. His biography is also tracked geographically across the sweeping landscapes of northern India. The testimony of contemporary Buddhists - including Pulitzer prize-winning poet W.S. Merwin and His Holiness the Dalai Lama - provides insight into the ancient narrative. To tell his story is to understand his teaching. And to understand his teaching is to gain new insight into what it is to be human. duration 2:42:32   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
