    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

Educational Objective: Learning to stick to your word, especially when sharing. Shoe Story: Caillou desperately wants a pair of snazzy light-up sneakers like the ones Clementine has...until he realizes she can't jump in puddles while wearing them (for fear of ruining the lights), or get the shoes dirty, or kick a ball for fear of scratching them.

Rollie Racers: Rollie Racers (toy cars) are the latest craze, and Caillou wants them...lots of them! Caillou begs his parents to take him to the mall, and they finally agree - but only after Caillou helps Daddy with a very special chore! Caillou "helps" Daddy fix their car...and he begins to have so much fun, he forgets all about going to the mall for Rollie Racers. Educational Objective: Toys are great, but time spent with family can be so much better; consumerism. duration 28:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Deepak Chopra: The Future of God Faith meets science in this thought-provoking program in which world renowned spiritual teacher and medical doctor Deepak Chopra demonstrates that the tools of our most advanced fields of science can be used to answer some of these fundamentally spiritual questions. Most importantly, Dr. Chopra will argue that Religion and Science, when understood at the highest levels, do not contradict each other and, in fact, actually complement each other.
    Dr. Chopra argues that even those of us brought up in a largely secular, materialistic world, without a devout connection to a religious tradition, can still have a more productive vital life, and a greater sense of well-being and happiness, if we gain a more intimate and powerful connection to the Divine Wisdom of the ages. By combining science, history and philosophy, as only Deepak Chopra can, he delivers a program that embodies and celebrates so much of what is central to the mission of public television: an ongoing, curious and engaging, quest into what it means to be human.
