    Top Hat [#1060] Top Hat Directed by Mark Sandrich and starring Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Edward Everett Horton, Helen Broderick, Eric Clore and Erik Rhodes.

    Royal Wedding (1951) Tom and Ellen Bowen, a brother and sister dance team (Fred Astaire and Jane Powell), travel to London to perform at the same time Queen Elizabeth II is getting married. Aboard ship, Ellen meets the dashing Lord John Brindale (Peter Lawford), causing her to miss rehearsal. Tom uses the delay to partner with a hat rack and other equipment. Arriving in London, Tom holds auditions, and meets the lovely Anne Ashmond (Sarah Churchill). The love affairs of both siblings lead to indecision and angst, which Tom works out by dancing on the walls and ceiling. The story was loosely based on the real life partnership of Fred Astaire and his sister Adele, including their ship voyage to London in 1923. Burton Lane's and Alan Jay Lerner's song, "Too Late Now," was nominated for an Oscar (losing out to "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening" by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer). duration 1:32:48   TVG

    Nature [#2613H] Victoria Falls Cutting across the Zambezi River, bridging the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world. In the dry season, this awesome force of nature divides two natural worlds -- the tranquil meandering river above the cascade, and the raging abyss of the gorge below. The upper river is idyllic, running shallow through sandstone hills and meandering around islands and reed-beds where elephants, hippos, and crocodiles thrive. In a single vertical drop the river plummets twice the height of Niagara Falls into the wild waters and heavy spray of the narrow gorge, where fish are found only by those who know where to look. Between the two worlds are treacherous cliffs and thick, mossy rainforests fed by river mists, home to baboons whose lives change with the seasons. When the rains fall, the rivers swell and the falls thunder. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2422H] March 22, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer
    SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BEFORE THE US SUPREME COURT
    Next Tuesday, more than 4 years after California voters approved Proposition 8, the state's ban on same sex marriage gets a full hearing before the US Supreme Court. The high court will also hear oral arguments for and against the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA. This comes as recent polls show a significant jump in support for same-sex marriage. The political climate has also shifted. President Obama and some prominent Republicans have recently voiced support for gay marriage. We look back at the series of events leading to this historical moment.
    Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom recalls his controversial decision as mayor of San Francisco to grant marriage licenses to gay couples in 2004. His actions helped to energize supporters of traditional marriage.
    Attorney Andrew Pugno, General Counsel for ProtectMarriage.com - sponsors of Proposition 8 - talks about the legal defense he is helping to present to the US Supreme Court.
    Plus, legal experts explain what issues are before the high court, and how the possible outcomes could have an impact in California and beyond.
    Guests:
    Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom
    Atty. Andrew Pugno, ProtectMarriage.com

    Moyers & Company [#211H] What Has Capitalism Done for Us Lately? * Richard Wolff's smart, blunt talk about the crisis of capitalism on his first Moyers & Company appearance was so informative, we asked him to return. On this week's show Wolff dives further into income inequality, analyzing the widening gap between a booming stock market and a population that increasingly lives in poverty. Wolff also takes questions sent in from around the world by our viewers. Wolff taught economics for 35 years at the University of Massachusetts and is now visiting professor at The New School University in New York City. His books include Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism and Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It. < br />* Also returning is Sheila Bair, the longtime Republican who served as chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) during the fiscal meltdown five years ago. During that time, she warned the public and her colleagues about big banking's excesses and against the billions in "too big to fail" taxpayer bailouts. Bair joins Bill to talk about American banks' continuing risky and manipulative practices, their seeming immunity from prosecution, and growing anger from Congress and the public. Bair is the author of Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE
