    Rick Steves' Europe [#906H] Assisi and Italian Country Charm In the Italian countryside, Rick connects with rustic, traditional culture: enjoying an agriturismo (farmhouse inn), seeing how prosciutto and pecorino cheese are made, and hiking down into deep and ancient wine cellars. He ends in Assisi - the hometown of St. Francis - which retains its spiritual aura to this day. Like pilgrims, he explores its stony center before trekking to its awe-inspiring basilica, built on the tomb of the beloved saint. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Hollywood Idols [#111H] Ingrid Bergman Remembered Ingrid Bergman possessed a natural and vulnerable persona, which was both genuine and alluring. Her cinematic contributions included such movie classics as Casablanca and Anastasia. Bergman's life took many sharp turns and led her in directions she never expected. Plagued by the scandal of her love affair and marriage to Italian film director Roberto Rossellini, her seeming abandonment of her husband Peter Lindstrom and daughter Pia was unexplainable. The turbulent years that followed included Bergman's total withdrawal from Hollywood. After disappearing from the public eye for more than seven years, she reemerged in the movie Anastasia, which sparked a triumphant return to America. Appearing together for the first time, Ingrid's daughters Pia Lindstrom and Isabella Rossellini take a personal look back at their mother's life beyond Bergman's acting career. They tell the story of her life, from her childhood in Sweden to her death at age 67 from breast cancer. duration 28:00   STEREO TVPG

Actors Caesar Romero, Alice Faye and Gloria Stuart, as well as former child actors Jane Withers, Darryl Hickman, Dick "Dickie" Moore, Marcia Mae Jones, and Temple's stand-in, Marilyn Granas, share stories.

    Great Performances [#3806] Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy A throw-away joke in the blockbuster Monty Python musical Spamalot may say it best, albeit bluntly: "You won't make it on Broadway if you don't have any Jews." The line is funny, but there is also more than a little truth in it. From Broadway's golden age, legendary names like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Gershwins, Arthur Laurents, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim immediately come to mind. And more recently, new generations of Broadway babies like Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Wicked), Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) and Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family) represent a small sampling of the Jewish talents who continue to leave their mark on musical theater. In "Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy," filmmaker Michael Kantor focuses in on this central question: what exactly is it that is so "Jewish" about Broadway? What is it about this unique American art form that has proven to be such fertile territory for Jewish artists of all kinds? To answer the question, this film combines interviews and extensive performance footage, including many of the rousing anthems and timeless ballads America has loved for the last 100 years. duration 1:55:31   SRND51 TVPG

    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

    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#818H] Big Business and Climate Change Earlier this month, President Trump formally withdrew the United States from the 2015 Paris climate change accord, in which 195 nations agreed to voluntary steps to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases released by burning gasoline and coal - emissions that cause global warming. Some of the strongest opposition to the move in the U.S. came from business leaders, who had urged the administration to stay with the accord. In the wake of Trump's decision, announced in June, hundreds of companies, including retail behemoth Wal-Mart and candy maker Mars, re-pledged to meet fossil fuel reduction targets recommended by scientists. The companies say the tactics will ultimately lower business costs and ebb the effects of climate change on supply chains. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Stephanie Sy reports on how some big companies are leading the way to combat climate change, with or without government action. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    Window in the Waves: The Flower Garden Banks Located 110 miles off the Louisiana/Texas coast, the corals of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary rank among the healthiest in the world, even though they lie in the middle of one of the most active oil and gas production areas on earth. Narrated by Penny Hammer, a Gulf Coast resident, WINDOW IN THE WAVES tells the intriguing story of the reefs' formation, their essential function as a haven for marine animals, their designation as a national sanctuary in 1992 and their critical importance to the global environment. Formed millions of years ago and protected by remoteness, the three reefs collectively cover 56 square nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico- and teem with biodiversity. Stunning underwater footage gathered over the course of hundreds of dives reveals the diverse inhabitants, including hundreds of species of fish and invertebrates. Cameras also capture a spectacular annual event in the life of coral reefs. Seven to 10 days after the August Moon, sponges begin to smoke and corals produce an underwater snowstorm resulting in an explosion of new life. WINDOW IN THE WAVES also highlights the unique partnership forged among environmental groups, divers, fishermen and the oil and gas industry to protect this fragile underwater ecosystem from the ever-constant threat of overfishing, climate change, invasive species and pollution. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
