    Sister Wendy and the Art of the Gospel The arresting sight of Sister Wendy Beckett, all teeth and glasses, burst on to our screens in the 1990s. An instant star, she travelled the world in her habit telling us the story of Christian art and painting but revealing little of her own extraordinary story. This program goes in search of the "real" Sister Wendy, who, at 82, talks frankly, humorously, and profoundly about her life and spirituality for the first time. Her story, inseparable from that of the Gospel, is told alongside her selection of paintings by the greatest old masters, revealing the emotional insights they have given her. In this film, we hear for the first time of Wendy's personal journey to God, her insights on prayer and suffering, and her reflections on the contemporary world. Above all, she connects us to the art that has helped her to know herself and her faith. duration 1:02:06   STEREO

    KQED NEWSROOM [#211H] 2014 Year in Review, Congressman George Miller Interview
    2014 Year in Review
    Will 2014 be remembered as the year of the drought? Gov. Jerry Brown kicked off the year by declaring a drought emergency and ended the year with voter approval for a $7.5 billion bond to shore up state waterworks. Education, high tech, politics, race relations and sports all had their highs and lows -- from the Giants' World Series win to protests decrying the shooting of unarmed black males by white police officers. The Bay Area also sparked national debates around issues such as taxing soda and upping the minimum wage. We reflect on the major stories that gripped our attention, as well as look forward to what may lie ahead in 2015.

    Guests:
    • Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle
    • Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News and KQED Science
    • Michelle Quinn, San Jose Mercury News

    Congressman George Miller Interview
    On the eve of retiring after four decades of public service, East Bay congressman George Miller reflects on his career. A lifelong Bay Area resident, Miller was part of the so-called Watergate class of Congress members elected shortly after Nixon resigned in 1974. He's been known as a tireless advocate for education, labor, economic equality and the environment. Scott Shafer hears from Rep. Miller about what he's learned and his advice for the next generation of lawmakers.

    Burt Bacharach's Best (My Music Presents) Thi archival PBS special includes all the original artists with rare archival footage and clips from the 1960s-1970s. For over half-a-century, the immensely popular and immediately identifiable melodies of celebrated composer Burt Bacharach have touched millions of music lovers all over the world.
    Bacharach teamed with lyricist Hal David for a stunning run of classic songs, many in tandem with songstress Dionne Warwick ("Walk On By," "Anyone Who Had A Heart," "I Say A Little Prayer," "I'll Never Fall In Love Again"). British born Dusty Springfield enjoyed Bacharach hits with the wistful "Wishin' & Hopin'" and seductive "The Look Of Love" while Tom Jones popularized the playful "What's New Pussycat?" The smashes continued in the 1970s when The Carpenters reached #1 with "(They Long To Be) Close To You," following another chart-topper, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," the Oscar-winning tune sung by B.J. Thomas in the film "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid." The Fifth Dimension's Marilyn McCoo shined as a soloist on Burt & Hal's torch number "One Less Bell To Answer."
