    Simon Schama's Power of Art [#102Z] Picasso A Gestapo officer visiting Pablo Picasso in Paris shoved a reproduction of Guernica in his face and accuses: "Was it you who did this?" "No," said Picasso. "It was you." This was the moment when the artist, for whom the condition of modern art was to separate itself from politics and history, came back, with a vengeance, to both. Cubism had shattered the surface of the world, the better to confirm the incoherent superficiality of appearances. But the brutality of the Luftwaffe when it bombed the ancient Basque town of Guernica in support of Franco's Nationalists had made Cubism's own little wrecking action seem trivial. What was the breaking of figurative art beside the breaking of bodies and the burning of homes?
    Living in France, Picasso was anguished enough about the fate of his country to want to do what was assumed never could be done - make a modern history painting. The pieces would be smashed, but the story, the tragedy, somehow would be rendered whole. Guernica was art for the whole world to see, the size of a great mural, harking back to the immense apocalyptical altarpieces of the late Middle Ages - a picture designed for the pavilion of the beleaguered Spanish Republic in the Paris International Exhibition, where it blazed in black and white between the competing dinosaurs of the Third Reich and the USSR.

    Face Facts In this technology age consumers are almost adrift in choices and nowhere is this more obvious than at the cosmetics counter.

    This program gives viewers all of the information that they need to understand how their skin functions what it really needs to be healthy. It takes the audience on a tour of their skin, from the epidermis to the dermis and the follicles, nerves and blood vessels and everything in between, using medical animations and graphics to further illustrate.
    The show also educates viewers about what ingredients they should look for, what they should look out for, and goes behind the ingredients and into the labs to unravel the mystery of healthy skin. It sorts the truth from the fiction about products and skin care, and helps consumers avoid products that don't deliver or worse, that damage skin and overall skin fitness.

    Dr. Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone! Dr. Wayne Dyer presents a new program, based on his newest book, Excuses Begone! His goal is simple, but not easy: to help viewers learn how to overcome lifetime thinking habits that keep us from maximizing our human potential. This special addresses the powerfully transformative process of how to change habituated ways of thinking that limit our beliefs in who we can be in the world and what we can achieve. Through Dr. Dyer's process of identifying excuses which are self-defeating, he also teaches that we can choose our way of thinking. And, just because something has "always seemed to be the way it is" for most of us, there is a wealth of research that now points to a human being's ability to change these habits - which really translate into our excuses - and move into new realms of possibility. duration 2:57:53   STEREO TVG

    Brain Fitness 2: Sight and Sound [#1] This program is designed to help people get the most from their senses as they age. It looks at the two important senses of vision and hearing, how they change throughout life, and what we can do to keep them healthy and fully functional. We know that we begin to experience decline in most cognitive functions in our 30s and 40s. As we grow older, the rate of decline increases, and the cumulative effects become more noticeable. We have increasing difficulty remembering, paying close attention, responding rapidly, performing complex tasks and our coordination and movement and many other cognitive functions that once came easily are now more difficult. But what we notice most is the difficulty hearing in a noisy place or seeing when we look at someone placed in front of a bright light, and we find that our reading slows. These are symptoms of elemental physical changes in the aging brain. The problem is more than just lapses in memory. This program is based on neuro-plasticity - the ability of the brain to change and adapt -- even rewire itself! It studies how we see and how that changes through life. Host: Dr. Michael Merzenich. duration 1:59:11   STEREO

    Brain Fitness Special If you are 50 years old today, you'll probably live into your mid-80s. If you live into your mid-80s, there's a more than even probability that your brain will decline in function before you die. At age 85, there's almost an even-money chance that you'll be identified as senile which will dramatically impair your ability to live alone, your ability to make your own decisions and live a full and interesting life until the day you die.
    The problem is more than just lapses in memory. There are 3 root causes of problems in the aging brain: (1) an increasing signal-to-noise problem in processing information collected by our senses, (2) a decline in the production of key brain chemicals and (3) a slowing in processing speed. These problems make it increasingly difficult to accurately receive, store, retrieve and manipulate information received from any of the 5 senses.
    The good news is that we can change this! It is not inevitable that we will be in a state of dementia at the time of our death. We know that we need physical exercise to maintain our physical strength throughout our lives, our brain also needs to be exercised in order to retain our mental acuity throughout whatever our lifespan. Over 50 neuroscientists have worked to create a system for strengthening the brain and making it perform with more agility, speed and comprehension. Host: Dr. Michael Merzenich.
