    Washington Week [#5706] Tensions escalated between the United States and North Korea after U. S. intelligence agencies assessed North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead that could fit on a missile capable of reaching Chicago. President Trump warned Kim Jong-un of the "fire and fury" the United States would unleash if his government continues its nuclear posturing and said the U.S. military solutions are "locked and loaded." North Korean military leaders dismissed the warning as a "load of nonsense" and threatened to launch missiles at the American territory of Guam, home of the B-1 bombers the Pentagon would potentially use to attack North Korea's missile sites.
    *Secretary of State Rex Tillerson defended the president's message and said North Korea is not an imminent threat. But Defense Secretary James Mattis released a statement amplifying the president's warning telling Pyongyang to halt its arms program. While the administration insists it is "speaking with one voice," the mixed messages raise the question -- who's advising the president on foreign policy?
    * Robert Costa will discuss the options being considered to de-escalate the nuclear standoff between the United States and North Korea with:
    *Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics
    *Yeganeh Torbati of Reuters
    *Nancy Youssef of BuzzFeed News
    *Michael Duffy of TIME Magazine

    I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can't be true. From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out. Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family ... while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers. Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations. Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices. Inspired by the peaceful death her mother was almost denied, Bryant began gathering information from national experts in palliative care, geriatrics, oncology, bio-ethics, psychology, and spirituality. I'll Have It My Way credibly and passionately presents the case for personal responsibility in the healthcare, legal, and procedural decisions that all of us must make - if they are not to be made for us. By making our wishes known and communicating them effectively, we remove the burden from our loved ones of making our choices for us that will enable us to live our lives more fully to the end. I'll Have It My Way provides useful information and a thought-provoking four-step guide that takes the viewer on a journey of discovery to learn what a life well-lived means to them. duration 1:26:56   STEREO TVG

    Great Performances [#3806] Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy A throw-away joke in the blockbuster Monty Python musical Spamalot may say it best, albeit bluntly: "You won't make it on Broadway if you don't have any Jews." The line is funny, but there is also more than a little truth in it. From Broadway's golden age, legendary names like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Gershwins, Arthur Laurents, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim immediately come to mind. And more recently, new generations of Broadway babies like Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Wicked), Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) and Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family) represent a small sampling of the Jewish talents who continue to leave their mark on musical theater. In "Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy," filmmaker Michael Kantor focuses in on this central question: what exactly is it that is so "Jewish" about Broadway? What is it about this unique American art form that has proven to be such fertile territory for Jewish artists of all kinds? To answer the question, this film combines interviews and extensive performance footage, including many of the rousing anthems and timeless ballads America has loved for the last 100 years. duration 1:55:31   SRND51 TVPG

The show is a fun, classy and toe-tapping trip down memory lane honoring Johnny Cash's life and music, and the boom-chicka-boom sound of his signature backing band, the Tennessee Three. duration 1:26:56

    Hollywood Idols [#113H] Burt Lancaster: Daring to Reach Burt Lancaster went from street-wise tough to art-collector liberal-activist, from circus-acrobat hunk to Academy Award winner. By age 18, Lancaster was 6' 2" and blessed with the athletic physique and dynamic good looks that helped make him famous. A stint in the Army introduced Lancaster to acting and led him to Hollywood where his first release, The Killers, propelled him to stardom at age 32. He took control of his own career and seldom faltered. Upon his death in 1994, four-time Academy Award-nominated Lancaster was acknowledged as one of the greatest stars in Hollywood. Lancaster's films include Westerns, costume epics and serious contemporary dramas. He starred in swashbucklers like The Crimson Pirate, and in more risky roles, like the aging alcoholic in Come Back Little Sheba. Other acting triumphs were The Birdman of Alcatraz, From Here to Eternity, The Rainmaker, The Sweet Smell of Success, Elmer Gantry - which earned him an Academy Award - and, Atlantic City. Those interviewed include: directors Sydney Pollack, Ted Post, and Delbert Mann; actors Rhonda Fleming, Virginia Mayo, Terry Moore, Peter Reigert, Earl Holliman, and Jeff Corey; producer James Hill; and biographer Gary Fishgall and others. duration 28:02   STEREO TVPG

    Hollywood Idols [#114H] Gary Cooper: The Face of a Hero Known for his personification of the Western Hero, it was Montana-born Gary Cooper's horse-riding skills that first brought him bit parts in movies - and he never lost his love of the great American outdoors. Though he rarely played a villain and was an adept comedian, Cooper is best remembered for the strong, silent heroes he portrayed. With his lanky, country-boy looks and shy manner, he created a unique screen presence, though his real life was one of sophisticated elegance. He received three Academy Award nominations and two Academy Awards for his resume of more than 100 films. Cooper's most memorable films include A Farewell to Arms, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Meet John Doe, The Pride of the Yankees and High Noon. Daughter Maria Cooper Janis and actors George C. Scott, Charlton Heston, and Patricia Neal are among those appearing in this profile of one of Hollywood's greatest stars. duration 27:59   STEREO TVPG
