    Speakeasy [#202H] David Crosby and Wynton Marsalis David Crosby is best known as the founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash. He is a two-time inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame who has five albums to which he's contributed, included in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of all time. Crosby takes the stage opposite Wynton Marsalis; the nine-time Grammy award winning jazz trumpet virtuoso who's "Blood on the Fields" was the first jazz composition to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. In 1983 and 1984, he became the only artist to win Grammy Awards for both jazz and classical records and is only one of two artists to win Grammy Awards for five consecutive years. This unique pairing of musical legends features an intimate discussion of their lives as musicians, the history and development of American Roots music and the impact that music has had on the social and political landscapes. duration 56:09   STEREO TVPG

That night the Punch and Judy man is found dead on the beach. Jane meets with Una, her daughter and her estranged husband and finds the Mayor rude and abrupt. That evening, Una refuses to meet to talk with her daughter and stands up her husband claiming to have an important meeting but instead we see her in a passionate embrace with Danny, a handsome, second-rate lounge singer. In the small hours Davey and Jane are called to the scene of a second death. Una has been beaten with a bottle of champagne in her hotel room. Will Jane and Davey be able to find the link between these two deaths? duration 44:07   STEREO TVPG

    Coroner [#104H] The Fisherman's Tale Judith and Mick are among the crowds to see local business man PB Bradsaw, and his glamorous wife, Joy, re-open their flagship restaurant. There is great shock when PB is shot dead, by a sniper, in the middle of the event. Davey takes an early lead on the case, suspecting a connection with PB's international business, but Detective Inspector Ben Marshall from the Metropolitan Police is swift to take over the case, undermining Davey in the process. Ben takes a shine to Jane and invites her out for dinner. Jane tends to agree with Mick that the motive lies in PB's personal life, especially when she sees video footage of an interview between PB and a student and notes strong sexual chemistry. Is this flirtation at the root of his murder? duration 44:50   STEREO 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

    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
