2:00 amAmerican Masters [#2503] Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel No ordinary writer and no ordinary woman -- "Gone with the Wind" created two of the world's greatest lovers, Scarlett and Rhett, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and has sold more than 30 million copies. Born into Atlanta's upper crust in 1900, Margaret Mitchell challenged stifling social restrictions at every turn. A charismatic force to be reckoned with, she had a great sense of humor, was one of Georgia's first newspaper women and was extremely generous with the money she made from "Gone with the Wind." She struggled with the changing role of women and the liberation of African Americans but also suffered from lifelong bouts of depression, until a tragic accident lead to her death in 1949. This film examines the amazing endurance of "Gone with the Wind" and reveals the seminal events of Mitchell's life through dramatic re-enactments based on her letters, as scenes from the movie weave together her life and her work. duration 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
3:00 amAmerican Masters [#2504(] Harper Lee: Hey Boo Reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" has been a national pastime for five decades - it is still selling nearly a million copies a year, its classic popularity and power are a common reference. And the courtroom image of Gregory Peck, as the passionate Atticus Finch, gave us an enduring picture for the novel's message. Behind it all was a young Southern girl named Nelle Harper Lee, who once said she wanted to be Alabama's Jane Austen.
This program explores her life and unravels its mysteries, particularly why she never published again. Illuminated with family photos, revealing personal letters and an exclusive interview with her sister, Alice Finch Lee (100 years old), the film is steeped in the texture of the novel's Deep South and the social changes it inspired. Tom Brokaw, Rosanne Cash, Anna Quindlen, Scott Turow, Oprah Winfrey and Andrew Young reflect on how "Mockingbird" shaped their lives. duration 1:59:40 STEREO TVPG-L
4:30 amAmerican Masters [#2207] Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women The author of Little Women is an almost universally recognized name. Her reputation as a morally upstanding New England spinster, reflecting the conventional propriety of late 19th-century Concord, is firmly established. However, raised among reformers and Transcendentalists and skeptics, the intellectual protege of Emerson and Hawthorne and Thoreau, Alcott was actually a free thinker with democratic ideals and progressive values about women -- a worldly careerist of sorts. Most surprising is that she led, under the pseudonym A.M. Barnard, a literary double life, undiscovered until the 1940s. As Barnard, Alcott penned scandalous, sensational works with characters running the gamut from murderers and revolutionaries to cross-dressers and opium addicts -- a far cry from her familiar fatherly mentors, courageous mothers and appropriately impish children. duration 1:26:18 STEREO TVPG
6:00 amZoboomafoo [#139] Stinky In the creature world, different smells mean different things. When a skunk visits the gang at Animal Junction, Zoboo, Martin and Chris discover the difference between a "come-here" smell and a "go away" smell. They also visit with a mink, a creature that scent-marks to let other creatures know that it has passed by. Chris decides to make a Chris scent so he can scent-mark Animal Junction. Jackie gives her friend's dog a bath in tomato juice to get rid of a gift from a skunk that didn't want to play with her. duration 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

7:00 amSesame Street [#4302H] The Good Sport Elmo and Abby are playing a game of hot potato together. Elmo keeps losing the game and starts to feel frustrated. He thinks that something must be wrong with the potato, and tries using another one, but he still loses. He becomes upset and only wants to win. Abby explains that it's just a game and says that she doesn't want to play with Elmo anymore. Telly appears and tells Elmo that what helped him to get better at the game was to practice. Elmo asks if Telly will train him and he agrees. After much practice, Elmo feels ready to play hot potato again with Abby. They play together and this time Elmo wins- again and again and again. But when Elmo begins to show off, it makes Abby not want to play anymore. Leela passes by and realizes the problem. She explains that it's fine to be good at something and to feel proud of yourself, but sometimes it is easy to get very excited about winning and get carried away. You may think that winning is everything and may even forget how you are making someone else feel. Leela says that the trick is to be a good sport, someone who, when they win, doesn't show off, and when they lose, doesn't get too upset. Elmo realizes that he wasn't a good sport and understands why Abby didn't want to play with him. Elmo sings a song about not meaning to hurt Abby's feelings, and he apologizes. Elmo promises to be a good sport from now on and they play another game of hot potato. duration 58:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
