    Washington Week [#5707] Every once in a while, an event strikes at the core of American society. The Charlottesville, Virginia protest that turned into a violent melee is one of those defining moments.
    *White nationalists gathered for the "Unite the Right" rally ostensibly to protect a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. However, over the course of two days, tiki torch-carrying participants shouted racist and anti-Semitic messages and clashed with counter-protestors. It made people question America's values. It sparked debates about racism, anti-Semitism, justice, and the power to conquer hate. It united a community in song to honor the people killed. And it tested America's leaders.
    *President Trump's initially tepid response turned into a week of equivocation about who was to blame. Business leaders bolted from White House jobs councils. Some Republicans distanced themselves from the president. But everyone was united in condemnation of the hate groups who started the violence.
    *The hatred the nation saw in Charlottesville did not begin with Charlottesville. It will not end with Charlottesville either.
    *Robert Costa will discuss what led to the violence in Charlottesville, how elected officials responded and where America goes next with:
    *Geoff Bennett of NPR
    *Shawna Thomas of VICE News
    *Michael Scherer of TIME Magazine
    *Molly Ball of The Atlantic

    Mystery of Agatha Christie with David Suchet David Suchet, TV's Poirot, has spent more of his life acting out the plots and dramas created by Agatha Christie than anyone else in the world. He now wants to embark on a journey to learn more about the woman who created him. He learns how she was born in 1890 in Torquay, England and how out of her idyllic childhood in Devon she grew to become master of the sinister world of poisons and murder. From the pastoral ideal of the British country house to the exotic mysteries of the East, her vivid construction of character and place combine to captivate readers by the millions.
    Suchet learns that it is not just Christie's novels that are shrouded in mystery. He investigates the adultery of her husband. A betrayal that led to her bizarre disappearance in 1926 when she faked her own death and convinced the nation she had succumbed to the same horrendous fate as the victims in her novels. Suchet explores the close links between Christie's extraordinary life and her work and discovers just what it is about this late Victorian woman from Torquay that allowed her to become the bestselling murder mystery writer in history - a popularity that continues up to the present.

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

    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 [#3813B] Pavarotti: A Voice for the Ages Like Enrico Caruso before him, Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the greatest male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. Audiences adored his larger than life personality, childlike charm, generous figure, and happy go lucky style. This program celebrates the 50th anniversary since his career debut in Amsterdam, Vienna, Zurich and finally London where he substituted for the ailing Giuseppe di Stefano as Rodolfo in La Boheme.
    Even today, it is his powerful sound with its natural grace and brilliant color which still leads many to consider him the world's greatest voice. It is Pavarotti who brought opera to the masses and made football fans worldwide fall in love with "Nessun dorma." This program includes that hit and other beloved arias from La Boheme, Rigoletto and Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini including "Mamma" and "O Sole Mio"; favorite sacred songs like "Ave Maria" and "O Holy Night"; as well as popular duets with Bono, Sting and Eric Clapton.

    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#815H] Mosul's Aftermath Mosul, Iraq, is a city where more than one million people once lived, but it was reduced to rubble after three years of ISIS occupation and a brutal nine-month battle to take it back. Some estimates put the number of civilians casualties at 40,000, some killed by airstrikes carried out by the American-led coalition that helped the Iraqi army regain control of Mosul last month. More than 700,000 people were displaced during the conflict, most dispersed to 20 refugee camps run by the Iraqi and Kurdish governments outside the decimated city. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Marcia Biggs and videographer Alessandro Pavone went to Mosul and the refugee camps on its outskirts to find out what survivors of the siege have endured. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    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.
