    Burt Bacharach's Best (My Music Presents) None4 Segments Thi archival PBS special includes all the original artists with rare archival footage and clips from the 1960s-1970s. For over half-a-century, the immensely popular and immediately identifiable melodies of celebrated composer Burt Bacharach have touched millions of music lovers all over the world.
    Bacharach teamed with lyricist Hal David for a stunning run of classic songs, many in tandem with songstress Dionne Warwick ("Walk On By," "Anyone Who Had A Heart," "I Say A Little Prayer," "I'll Never Fall In Love Again"). British born Dusty Springfield enjoyed Bacharach hits with the wistful "Wishin' & Hopin'" and seductive "The Look Of Love" while Tom Jones popularized the playful "What's New Pussycat?" The smashes continued in the 1970s when The Carpenters reached #1 with "(They Long To Be) Close To You," following another chart-topper, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," the Oscar-winning tune sung by B.J. Thomas in the film "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid." The Fifth Dimension's Marilyn McCoo shined as a soloist on Burt & Hal's torch number "One Less Bell To Answer."

    Happiness Advantage with Shawn Achor, The Positive psychology expert Shawn Achor demonstrates how to use the latest scientific research on happiness to find success in every aspect of our lives. Most people believe that once they land that long-awaited promotion, make more money, get their kids into the right schools, lose a few pounds, or find a meaningful relationship, then they'll be happy. But based on recent discoveries in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, Achor shows us that that formula for happiness is wrong. In fact, it's backwards.

    It turns out, happiness actually fuels success, not the other way around.This is what Achor calls The Happiness Advantage. When we become more positive, our brain becomes more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient and productive. The result is an advantage over the entirety of our life - improving success at work, creating better health, better relationships with our loved ones, and creating a happier home.

    Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, MD This special is based on the 2013 New York Times bestselling book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof that Your Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. It is a meticulously researched explanation of the critical role our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play in our health and wellbeing - and how we can harness the power of our minds to enjoy great health and longevity with specific, easy-to-do steps.
    Part 1 covers topics such as why Western medicine is very important; your brain is most important organ for your health; "Learned helplessness"; and asking what does your body need in order to heal?
    Part 2 includes an explanation of the placebo effect with examples; explanation of the nocebo effect and of the role the amygdala plays in the brain and how it controls stress; understanding how the body has its own self-repair mechanisms, which are under the influence of the nervous system; and why the body's self-repair mechanisms only work when the relaxation response is activated.
    Part 3 covers the importance of reducing stress response for self-healing and optimal health; Dr. Rankin's groundbreaking new wellness model: The Whole Health Cairn; why physical health is only one aspect of whole health; the difference between being healed and being cured; and healing ourselves, healing health care.
    Dr. Rankin is a trained ob-gyn who has emerged as one of the newest thought leaders in the mind/body medicine arena. Her work has been featured extensively in national media, including O magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Health, Women's Health, Self, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She is also the founder of The Whole Health Medicine Institute, dedicated to teaching doctors how to provide truly integrative health and wellness to patients. Its Board includes Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Christiane Northrup, who says about Lissa, "What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine - the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well."

    Sin, Fire & Gold! The Days of San Francisco's Barbary Coast Since its beginnings, San Francisco has been home to an eclectic array of characters drawn not only to the city's spectacularly beautiful surroundings but also to the vibrant spirit of independence the area seems to foster. KQED's documentary celebrates the people, places and events which have shaped the city over the years. San Francisco can boast not only of physical beauty, but also a history replete with swashbuckling drama and Gold Rush fever. Largely forgotten, much of this history seems to have been buried with the rubble of the great 1906 earthquake. Host Greg Sherwood joins tour guide and historian Daniel Bacon in sifting through the present to uncover some of San Francisco's fascinating past.
    Viewers join them for a leisurely walk along the city's original waterfront - the Barbary Coast - and discover the last remaining pocket of original buildings in the area which miraculously survived the 1906 earthquake and fire. The tour points out where Gold Rush ships still lie buried beneath the towering skyscrapers of the Financial District, and viewers learn why the Ferry building faces a particular sleepy side street as well as the logical main avenue of Market Street. At times, the tour takes viewers inside some of the buildings along the way to enjoy unique interior designs and significant architectural elements, including the Old Mint, a spectacular national landmark seldom seen by the general public. It also highlights some of the area's more colorful characters, such as famed Gold Rush era performer Lotta Crabtree.

    Omni Health Revolution with Tana Amen, RN and Dr. Daniel Amen, MD This program features psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife, neurosurgical intensive care nurse Tana Amen. It is designed to help viewers take control of their physical and mental health using the science of nutragenomics - a big word, but it's very simple.
    Nutragenomics tells us that the foods you eat talk directly to your genes. You have the choice to eat in a way that turns on genes that keep you healthy or make you sick. Most people think of their genes like an evil monarchy that condemned them to be sick. Daniel and Tana Amen turn that notion on its head to give viewers much more control over the health of their bodies and minds. The Omni Health Revolution is a bipartisan plan that bridges the gap between strict vegetarian diets and extreme high protein diets, with a program that is based on 70% plant based foods and 30% high quality protein.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#101H] BART Unions Strike and a Conversation with Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye
    BART Unions Strike After Negotiations Collapse
    The breakdown of negotiations between BART management and the workers' unions affects commuters, employers, and businesses across the Bay Area. The BART strike and an ongoing labor dispute between AC Transit and its workers raises questions about the role of unions and whether transit workers should even be banned from striking.

    A Conversation With Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye
    In her nearly three years as Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, Tani Cantil-Sakauye has weathered severe state budget cuts, revolt by a band of unhappy lower court judges and controversy over a bloated statewide computer system she inherited from her predecessor. She sat down with senior correspondent Scott Shafer to talk about crime, punishment, how growing up the daughter of Filipino-Portuguese farmworkers affects her view from the bench and what she learned from her years as a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas.

From Broadway's golden age, names like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Gershwin's, Arthur Laurents, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim immediately come to mind. More recently, Broadway babies such as Stephen Schwartz, Marc Shaiman and Andrew Lippa represent a sampling of the Jewish talents who continue to leave their mark on musical theater. Filmmaker Michael Kantor focuses on this central question left largely unaddressed in his Emmy-winning Broadway: The American Musical, combining interviews with performance footage, including many of the rousing anthems and timeless ballads America has loved for a century. duration 1:59:47   SRND51 TVPG

    Extraordinary Women [#102Z] Coco Chanel She was an illegitimate child, born into a poorhouse and abandoned in an orphanage, but Coco Chanel rose from unimaginable poverty to create the most iconic fashion brand of the 20th century, The House of Chanel. With steely ambition, she took advantage of wealthy lovers, rose to the top in a male-dominated world, and created a style of clothing that changed the face of women's fashion forever. She encouraged women to dress comfortably, with simplicity and for themselves, rather than their men. Starting with a modest hat shop in Paris, an Empire grew and the House of Chanel came to epitomise luxury and style. Yet behind the success, lay a hidden story of wartime collaboration with the Nazis and a lifetime of disastrous affairs with unsuitable lovers, including the Duke of Westminster, Russian composer Igor Stravinsky and Nazi spy Hans Gunther von Dincklage. Always a mistress, never a wife, Coco's longing for love nearly cost her everything. Yet at the age of 88, when she died at her Ritz apartment in Paris, Coco Chanel was officially still working. She triumphed over the adversity of her lowly birth and two world wars, and clung onto her fashion empire which, to this day, continues to be successful and respected the world over. duration 48:20   STEREO TVG
