"You Are My Sunshine" is the song in Louisiana that ties a rich musical history and diverse culture together. Harry Connick, Jr. takes us on a musical journey of Louisiana music through the lyrics of this classic song. Some of the featured artists in this 60-minute HD-special are: Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jerry Lee Lewis performing at his house in Memphis, Blues legend Buddy Guy playing at his club in Chicago, Cajun singer/songwriter Zachary Richard singing in French at this house in Acadiana, the Rebirth Brass Band marching through the Lafayette Cemetery No. 2, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue performing on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, country star Tim McGraw leading his audience in a spirited rendition of the song at his concert at the New Orleans Arena, a gospel version by The Zion Harmonizers at the St. James AME Church in New Orleans, Mickey Gilley at his theater in Branson, Irma Thomas, Buckwheat Zydeco and Grammy winners Wynton and Branford Marsalis joined with their dad Ellis and brother Jason for a unique jazz version.

    Escape from a Nazi Death Camp October 14th 2013 was the 70th anniversary of an event that shook the Nazi party to its core. In east Poland, at the remote Nazi death camp of Sobibor, 300 Jewish prisoners staged a bloody break out. To mark the anniversary, this film travels back Sobibor with the last remaining survivors to reveal their extraordinary story of courage, desperation and determination. The film uses brutally honest drama-reconstruction and first hand testimony to reveal the incredible escape story. The multi-layered plot unfolds like a Hollywood blockbuster - from the last-minute change to the escape plan forced by an unexpected arrival of a train load of SS soldiers, to the systematic luring of individual camp guards to separate locations and different, highly creative deaths, yet every terrible and inspiring moment of this story is absolutely true. duration 56:46   SRND51 TV14-V

The crew could only watch as their superiors entered a battle of wills that would determine the fate of humanity. The story of what happened that fateful day remained hidden for decades, only emerging in Russia in recent years. Now these events will be known to the world. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
