    Love, Laugh & Eat with John Tickell, M.D. In the first half of the last 100 years, our life expectancy rose considerably because of three things - sanitation, vaccination, and antibiotics. But in the last 50 years, life expectancy has moved only a few months, overcome by our worsening eating and drinking habits! Dr. John Tickell is a medical doctor, and international speaker and bestselling author who has spent the last 25 years researching the health, well-being and longevity patterns of people around the world. This special presents an interpretation of that research in an accessible, practical way so audiences can put these important findings to work in their own lives. duration 1:29:46   STEREO TVG

    Protect Your Memory with Dr. Neal Barnard Nothing is more important than your health, family and loved ones. Your connections with other people, entire relationships, and everything your loved ones have ever meant to you could be entirely wiped out, if you run the risk of memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer's disease, based on family history and lifestyle.
    In this program, Dr. Neal Barnard proves with groundbreaking research that there is in fact, lots you can do to protect your brain and memory! He dives into 3 simple steps you can take to derail the degenerative processes that could otherwise derail you and your memory: Skip "bad fat," Knock out free radicals, Exercise your brain. Dr. Barnard also warns against potential threats to the brain, including medications, drug interactions, sleep deprivation and physical conditions that can put your memory at risk.
    While research has led to clear answers about how to prevent lung cancer and reduce heart attacks, most people have absolutely no idea that it is possible to protect their memory, brain and connections with loved ones. Dr. Barnard provides viewers with the researched-backed information, giving them the power to protect their memory, beyond simply "waiting and seeing."

    Sesame Street [#4313H] The Very End of X Big Bird and Snuffy are the hosts of "The Letter of the Day Show" on Sesame Street! The only problem is that the letter they were supposed to introduce and sing about is broken into two straight pieces. Big Bird and Snuffy need help determining which letter it is, so they use the guests on the show as clues. Their first guest is a box, which begins with the letter "B", so they think the letter must be "B". When they try to put the broken pieces of the letter together, however, it does not form a "B". Big Bird and Snuffy realize the letter must have two straight lines. The next guest is wax, so Big Bird and Snuffy think the letter must be "W", but that letter has four straight lines. The next guest is Leela dressed up as a Tyrannosaurs Rex. Big Bird thinks that this has all become too hard because all of the guests start with a different letter - box, wax, and Tyrannosaurs Rex. After he says the words out loud, Snuffy realizes that all of the letters end with the same sound. They figure out that these words don't start with the same letter, but end with the same letter-"X"! Leela helps them cross the two straight lines of the broken letter together and they form the letter "X"! Other guests that end with the letter "X" appear on the show and they all sing a song together! duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Sarah Brightman: Dreamchaser In Concert After making history on both stage and screen, pioneering the classical crossover genre, selling over 30 million albums worldwide, and becoming the only artist to perform the theme song at two Olympics, it's hard to imagine Sarah Brightman has a dream left to realize. Yet with her new album 'Dreamchaser,' Sarah is embarking on what she calls "the greatest adventure I can imagine."
    Inspired by the wonderment and beauty of space, Dreamchaser the album is inspired by Brightman's life-long dream to travel into space. As announced last year in Moscow, Brightman is anticipated to be the first musician to travel to the International Space Station, turning her dream into reality. Dreamchaser is a collaboration with veteran producer Mike Hedges, known for his iconic work with the likes of U2, The Cure, Dido.
    This concert was filmed filmed in June 2013 at Elstree Studios just outside of London. This unique TV special is based around the futuristic, otherworldly vision behind the Dreamchaser album and World Tour, with its vast, curved screen and featuring many 3D embellishments. The studio is transformed: purposefully lit and dressed into a bespoke environment for the TV show recording in front of a live audience. With a breathtaking set featuring both new songs and classic favorites, the incredible lighting, elaborate costumes and powerful video imagery fuse together to create a truly spectacular and highly original program.
