    Bee Gees: One Night Only The Bee Gees, in this glossy musical and visual event, perform their biggest singles from the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s, plus songs from their recent CD, Still Waters. Taped at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in November 1997, the concert features the timeless harmonies of Robin, Barry, and the late Maurice Gibb, and includes a special appearance by guest artist Celine Dion, performing "Immortality." Counted among the most successful musical groups of all time, the Bee Gees are the only recording artists to write and produce six straight number-one singles, and the first composers to have five songs in the Top Ten at the same time.

    With a string of hit singles, the Bee Gees became pop stars in the late 1960s. But their participation on the soundtrack of the generation-defining film Saturday Night Fever shot them to mega-stardom in the mid-'70s. Featuring a slew of pop/disco standards like "Stayin' Alive, " "Night Fever" and "How Deep is Your Love," the album remains the biggest selling soundtrack in history, with 40 million copies sold to date.

    The Bee Gees continued their success into the '80s and'90s, with platinum albums like Spirits Having Flown and successful collaborations with the likes of Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick and Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers. In 1997 they were inducted into the Rock ' n' Roll Hall of Fame, and received career achievement awards from the American Music Awards and World Music Awards - tributes to the lasting quality of their work.

    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 1:55:07   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
