    Roadtrip Nation [#1104H] Rattle The Cage The road-trippers meander through the South, eventually stopping in New Orleans, where they interview a range of individuals, including a chef, a graphic designer, and a veterinarian at a chimpanzee sanctuary. Later, on an airboat tour through the swamps of Lafitte, the team is surprised to learn that their boat operator is also an alligator wrestler whose involvement with the sport is rooted in a Native American tradition that dates back hundreds of years.
    Next, the road-trippers make the drive up to St. Louis, Missouri, where they participate in a Zombie Fun Run. Olivia reflects on her affinity for life on the road, noting her appreciation for the way that traveling shakes you out of your habits and "rattles the cage."
    Moving on to Washington D.C., the road-trippers interview Ben Drexler, a former non-profit professional who left his traditional 9-to-5 to become a poi (fire) spinner. Ben encourages the road-trippers to think about life as a gift, and challenges them to find their own niches that allow them to express who they are. After learning a bit about the craft, Ed and Tele'jon both give fire spinning a whirl, finding liberation in confronting their fears.

    Elvis '56 In 1956, Elvis Presley was a 21-year-old new singing sensation and both he and his new Rockabilly sound were unknown outside of the South. In ELVIS '56, filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond (An American Family) open a time capsule to reveal the legendary performer at the very beginning of his meteoric career. Narrated by Levon Helm (The Band), ELVIS '56 captures the sights and sounds of that pivotal year using exclusive, previously unseen photographs shot on tour in 1956, kinescopes of Presley's controversial appearances on TV, plus newsreel clips and radio interviews. Footage of performances on The Milton Berle Show, The Steve Allen Show and The Ed Sullivan Show capture the young, explosively talented Presley on the brink of his soon-to-be superstardom. Although he bombed in his first Las Vegas show, just one year later, he achieved widespread fame, selling a billion records worldwide, to become the highest-paid star in Hollywood. duration 1:29:35   STEREO TVPG

    Monterey Pop: The Summer of Love During the Summer of Love, 1967, the first and only Monterey International Pop Festival ushered in a new era of rock and roll. The festival would launch the careers of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding, but they were just a few among a diverse cast that included Simon and Garfunkel, Hugh Masekela, The Mamas and the Papas, Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burden and the Animals, and The Who. Director D.A. Pennebaker captured the decade's spirit during the 3-day festival in his acclaimed documentary entitled "Monterey Pop" and immortalized moments that have become legend. And now 40 years later, this program presents the best of Pennebaker's documentary. duration 1:26:51   STEREO TVPG

    Dr. David Perlmutter's Whole Life Plan You can choose your health destiny. Effortless weight loss. Freedom from neurological disorders and other chronic conditions. Boundless energy. A radiant appearance. Sound sleep. A happy belly. A robust immune system. Relief from depression and anxiety. A sharp, fast-thinking brain. A great sense of self-confidence and well-being. A super-high quality of life.
    These are all terrific goals, and who wouldn't want to achieve them? But such monumental accomplishments don't come without hard work and sacrifices. You can't necessarily turn away from the standard American diet - bread, soda, OJ, sugar, cereal, muffins, bagels, processed foods-and embrace a totally gluten-free, low-carb lifestyle overnight. It takes commitment. It takes effort. But it's doable with the plan outlined in this program.
    More than a million people around the world have improved their health-physical, mental, and cognitive - thanks to Dr. Perlmutter's bestselling books. Now the time has come to bring these two forces together in a highly practical, step-by-step holistic lifestyle program. Welcome to Dr. Perlmutter's Whole Life Plan. Dr. Perlmutter puts his ideas into practice in the real world to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth. It expands upon the core advice in his previous programs and introduces exciting new information about the advantages of eating more fat and fiber, consuming fewer carbs and protein, evicting gluten forever, and catering to your intestinal flora.

    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

    Feel Better with Pressure Point Therapy Dr. Michael Pinkus (D.C.) empowers viewers to take pain relief into their own hands. Over the years, Dr. Pinkus has found a way to make Eastern medicine practices easy to understand and accessible to the layperson. Comparing Asian acupuncture charts to Western nerve charts of the body, he cross-referenced which nerve pathways were involved with the ancient acupressure points.
    Where did the nerve travel to? What area of the body did it control or influence? Which organs were influenced by these points and how did this correspond to the nerve pathways in the body? From these observations and many years of hands-on application as a successful Doctor of Chiropractic, he derived this technique which he coined "Pressure Point Therapy." This program shows viewers how they can apply these techniques in their daily lives.
