    Baking with Julia [#208] Johanne Killeen Chef Julia Child observes pastry chef Johanna Killeen as she makes "baby cakes," miniature cakes made from of the same basic batter, but varied with different flavoring ingredients. First, she shows Julia how to make the batter, which is a traditional American pound cake recipe, made richer with the addition of creme fraiche. She varies the first recipe by using hazelnut flour as an ingredient, and tops it with a dollop of Italian cream cheese flavored with grappa wine. Then she makes a couple of miniature upside-down cakes, using a rhubarb and caramel topping on one and rose geranium leaves on another. duration 24:54   STEREO TVG

  • 3:30 am
    JFK: The Lost Inaugural Gala In celebration of John F. Kennedy's 100th birthday on May 29th, this program opens a window to the glamour and excitement that descended on the nation's capital for his 1961 inauguration, with a never before seen musical event - the Pre-Inaugural Gala, produced by and starring Frank Sinatra. It was a star-studded musical celebration, scheduled to be broadcast on television the following week.
    But on the day of the gala, January 19, 1961, Washington DC was hit with a colossal blizzard, and most of the performers were stuck in the Armory, rehearsing all day, unable to rest or change clothes for the evening. The storm took out most of the power in Washington but a few generators powered the minimal lights and cameras. In the end, it was decided not to broadcast the program.
    The black-and-white gala performances will be enhanced and interconnected by brilliant color and black-and-white footage from the Kennedy years, with insightful commentary from a distinguished host and interviewees. The artful mix of Kennedy home movies and photos, television news coverage, White House archives and footage from this previously unseen gala helps define the fabled Kennedy years and their legacy in the arts.
    The program includes performances by Frank Sinatra, Ethel Merman, Harry Belafonte, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Gene Kelly, Helen Traubel and Jimmy Durante. A specially written political parody of Kennedy's campaign features these luminaries as well as others, including Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, Milton Berle, Alan King, and more.

    Nixon's The One: The '68 Election Narrated by Dick Cavett, this program chronicles not only Richard Nixon's stunning victory in the 1968 presidential race, but the ways in which that historic election gave rise to Red State-Blue State America. Combining archival footage and original interviews with, among others, activist Tom Hayden, former Nixon advisor Kevin Phillips, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and historian David Maraniss, and bestselling author Rick Perlstein, it is anything but a nostalgic trip through the "flower power" decade. Rather, it's a sobering, wry look at how the Sixties divided us-and how Nixon stepped into the breach to claim the biggest prize of all. duration 53:24   STEREO TVPG

    Ready Jet Go! [#128H] Beep and Boop's Game/Constellation Prize "Beep and Boop's Game" - The kids help Dr. Rafferty and Bergs get Mars Rover BOOP over a ravine on the red planet by simulating actions in the DSA "Mars Yard" using BEEP (Boop's sister)! Trial and error leads to success. Along the way, the kids learn just how scientists communicate with far away rovers - through satellites above Mars. The kids then solve a new mystery set up by Bergs, figuring out that Beep and Boop are communicating about... a game of Mars/Mars Yard tic-tac-toe they're playing! Curriculum: A good amount of communication between Mars and Earth goes through satellites. Rovers send images, along with instrument and status data, back to Earth. Extrapolating from the data, the scientists send commands to the rover, which can take 4-24 minutes to be received due to the distance. Rovers are often on their own, carrying out commands and sending image data to overhead satellites. The rover's commanders may tell it to move toward a new rock, grind a rock, analyze a rock, take photos, or gather other data with other instruments. "Constellation Prize" - When Mindy thinks she's found her own star, the other kids explain how stars are labeled and identified by constellations. Mindy eventually learns that she hasn't found a new star, but that she CAN create her own version of a constellation by connecting patterns in the sky. Curriculum: A constellation is a group of stars that make an imaginary shape in the night sky. In different parts of the world, people have made up different shapes out of the same groups of bright stars, like a game of connect-the-dots. In the past, constellations were useful for navigating at night and for keeping track of the seasons. They are now useful for identifying parts of the sky astronomers are studying. Because all the stars are at different distances, the constellations would look totally different to inhabitants of another planet orbiting another star. duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Washington Week [#5650] Former FBI director James Comey accused President Trump of telling "lies, plain and simple" during remarkable testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comey detailed conversations he had with Mr. Trump and the circumstances surrounding his dismissal last month.
    Comey's testimony, in which he refused to characterize the pressure he felt from Trump as obstruction of justice, is already raising more questions in the ongoing probes into Russia's attempts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.
    Republicans left the hearing with new ammunition, too. Among the revelations:
    * Comey helped reveal memos detailing his meetings with the president because he hoped it would prompt the appointment of a special counsel. * Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Comey to refer to the ongoing probe of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails as a "matter" rather than an "investigation."
    The president's personal attorney called Comey's testimony proof that Trump did not try to impede the investigation into the FBI investigation into Russian election meddling. He went on to accuse the former FBI director of leaking unauthorized information to try and damage the president.
    Robert Costa will discuss how the White House and Capitol Hill are responding to Comey's testimony and the impact on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation with: Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Julie Hirschfeld Davis of The New York Times, Kimberly Atkins of the Boston Herald, and Pete Williams of NBC News.

    Journey In Concert: Houston 1981 The music of Journey, one of the 70s and 80s top "hard pop"/arena bands, has become ingrained in American culture. The band has had 18 Top 40 hits, and has sold 48 million albums in the US. And with the use of "Don't Stop Believin'" in the series finale of HBO's The Sopranos, their music has had a popular resurgence. In April 2017, they will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
    Popular lead singer Steve Perry was with the band for a total of 13 years. Since 2008, Filipino singer Arnel Pineda, a virtual Steve Perry sound-alike, has taken the lead. Pineda was discovered on YouTube by Journey guitarist Neil Schon. Pineda's band, The Zoo, was known for covering bands like Journey, Aerosmith, Air Supply, Kenny Loggins and other bands of the 70s and 80s. Pineda had been performing and recording both as a solo act and with various bands in the Philippines and Hong Kong for years, gaining modest success. This concert, part of Journey's 1981 "Escape" tour with Perry in the lead, was filmed in Houston, TX during the height of the band's success.
