    Broadway Or Bust [#102H] Boot Camp Boot camp - there's no other way to describe it. The second episode picks up where the first left off, launching headlong into the fire of the rehearsals, coaching and coaxing sessions that take place during one week of intense preparation for the auditions and the awards ceremony, popularly known as "The Jimmy Awards" in honor of renowned Broadway theater owner and producer James M. Nederlander. Fighting fatigue, the eager performers quickly see what a learn-by-immersion experience is all about - and get an eye-opening look at what life is like on Broadway. The central drama of the episode lies in both the progress and setbacks of the individual performers. As the week moves along and the final auditions loom, the program closes with another round of uncertainty. Participants dig in and launch into last-minute preparations for their auditions. Did boot camp pay off or not? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Broadway Or Bust [#103H] And The Winner Is ... The show at New York's Minskoff Theatre is the final act and crowning highlight of the miniseries. The 60 finalists prepare for the big day. In just six hours, the lights will go up, the theater will be filled and, with the downbeat of the orchestra leader's baton, it'll be show time. Going into the final competition awards show, all of the judges have a short list of top contenders, but during the show itself, they'll be asked once again to give scores to the leading performers based on the group performances and individual medleys. At intermission, the judges will cut the group to six finalists. Those six will perform their solos, and after another round, the judges will choose the two winners. In the words of director Van Kaplan, "This week ... is going to shape their whole lives, whether they go into the theater or not." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3803H] Making Stuff Smaller How small can we go? Could we one day have robots taking "fantastic voyages" in our bodies to kill rogue cells? The triumphs of tiny are seen all around us in the Information Age: transistors, microchips, laptops, cell phones. Now, David Pogue takes Nova viewers to an even smaller world in Making Stuff Smaller, examining the latest in high-powered nano-circuits and microrobots that may one day hold the key to saving lives and creating materials from the ground up, atom by atom. Pogue explores the star materials of small applications, including silicon, the stuff of computer chips, and carbon, the element now being manipulated at the atomic level to produce future technology. "Smaller" and more portable stuff has already revolutionized the way we live. The nanotechnology to come could change the face of medicine, with intelligent pills that know what medicine to release into the body and treat patients from the "inside" based on changing needs; robots that repair damaged body parts; and more. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

When they finally pay their new neighbor a visit, the real story is even more interesting than George's theory.

    American Masters [#2505#] The Day Carl Sandburg Died For much of the 20th century, Carl Sandburg's name was synonymous with the American experience -- a spokesman on behalf of 'the people. " He became one of the most successful writers in the English language, using his unique life -- from impoverished beginnings on the prairie of Illinois to the halls of Congress to the Ed Sullivan Show -- in his free verse poetry. His was a classic American tale of success -- a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, a biographer -- most notably of Abraham Lincoln -- a journalist, children's storyteller, folk song collector, novelist and autobiographer. But Sandburg's story is not without controversy. After his death in 1967, his literary legacy faded and his poems, once taught in schools across America, were dismissed under the weight of massive critical attack. This program captures the burgeoning resurgence of interest in Sandburg and his contributions. duration 1:25:46   STEREO TVPG
