    Protect Your Memory with Dr. Neal Barnard Nothing is more important than your health, family and loved ones. Your connections with other people, entire relationships, and everything your loved ones have ever meant to you could be entirely wiped out, if you run the risk of memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer's disease, based on family history and lifestyle.
    In this program, Dr. Neal Barnard proves with groundbreaking research that there is in fact, lots you can do to protect your brain and memory! He dives into 3 simple steps you can take to derail the degenerative processes that could otherwise derail you and your memory: Skip "bad fat," Knock out free radicals, Exercise your brain. Dr. Barnard also warns against potential threats to the brain, including medications, drug interactions, sleep deprivation and physical conditions that can put your memory at risk.
    While research has led to clear answers about how to prevent lung cancer and reduce heart attacks, most people have absolutely no idea that it is possible to protect their memory, brain and connections with loved ones. Dr. Barnard provides viewers with the researched-backed information, giving them the power to protect their memory, beyond simply "waiting and seeing."

    Omni Health Revolution with Tana Amen, RN and Dr. Daniel Amen, MD This program features psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife, neurosurgical intensive care nurse Tana Amen. It is designed to help viewers take control of their physical and mental health using the science of nutragenomics - a big word, but it's very simple.
    Nutragenomics tells us that the foods you eat talk directly to your genes. You have the choice to eat in a way that turns on genes that keep you healthy or make you sick. Most people think of their genes like an evil monarchy that condemned them to be sick. Daniel and Tana Amen turn that notion on its head to give viewers much more control over the health of their bodies and minds. The Omni Health Revolution is a bipartisan plan that bridges the gap between strict vegetarian diets and extreme high protein diets, with a program that is based on 70% plant based foods and 30% high quality protein.

Dr. Rudy Tanzi is introduced by his co-author Dr. Deepak Chopra. In his new program, the Harvard Medical School professor takes advantage of cutting-edge research to show the way we all can maximize our brain's potential. duration 1:28:42   STEREO TVG

    Mel Brooks: American Masters In 60 years in show business, Mel Brooks has earned more major awards than any other living entertainer. A comedy giant of our time, scrawny Melvin Kaminsky developed his aggressively funny personality on the mean streets of Brooklyn, to protect against bullies. His first public success came in the early '60s with the 2000 Year Old Man albums, recorded with Carl Reiner and unleashing Brooks' wacky mind on the world - his brazen satirical film The Producers won the 1968 Oscar for best screenplay and such cult classics as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, The Twelve Chairs, High Anxiety, To Be or Not to Be, Spaceballs and Robin Hood: Men in Tights followed. Ironically, this larger-than-life, loud-mouthed little man is very private and has been fairly reclusive since his wife of 41 years, Anne Bancroft, died in 2005. He has never authorized a biography and has requested that his friends not talk about him, making his full participation with American Masters a genuine first. duration 1:25:46   SRND51 TVPG-L

    Great Performances [#3806H] 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 1:26:46   SRND51 TVPG

    Burt Bacharach's Best (My Music Presents) Thi archival PBS special includes all the original artists with rare archival footage and clips from the 1960s-1970s. For over half-a-century, the immensely popular and immediately identifiable melodies of celebrated composer Burt Bacharach have touched millions of music lovers all over the world.
    Bacharach teamed with lyricist Hal David for a stunning run of classic songs, many in tandem with songstress Dionne Warwick ("Walk On By," "Anyone Who Had A Heart," "I Say A Little Prayer," "I'll Never Fall In Love Again"). British born Dusty Springfield enjoyed Bacharach hits with the wistful "Wishin' & Hopin'" and seductive "The Look Of Love" while Tom Jones popularized the playful "What's New Pussycat?" The smashes continued in the 1970s when The Carpenters reached #1 with "(They Long To Be) Close To You," following another chart-topper, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," the Oscar-winning tune sung by B.J. Thomas in the film "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid." The Fifth Dimension's Marilyn McCoo shined as a soloist on Burt & Hal's torch number "One Less Bell To Answer."

    Sin, Fire & Gold! The Days of San Francisco's Barbary Coast Since its beginnings, San Francisco has been home to an eclectic array of characters drawn not only to the city's spectacularly beautiful surroundings but also to the vibrant spirit of independence the area seems to foster. KQED's documentary, broadcast digitally in HDTV, celebrates the people, places and events which have shaped the city over the years. San Francisco can boast not only of physical beauty, but also a history replete with swashbuckling drama and Gold Rush fever. Largely forgotten, much of this history seems to have been buried with the rubble of the great 1906 earthquake. Host Greg Sherwood joins tour guide and historian Daniel Bacon in sifting through the present to uncover some of San Francisco's fascinating past.
    Viewers join them for a leisurely walk along the city's original waterfront - the Barbary Coast - and discover the last remaining pocket of original buildings in the area which miraculously survived the 1906 earthquake and fire. The tour points out where Gold Rush ships still lie buried beneath the towering skyscrapers of the Financial District, and viewers learn why the Ferry building faces a particular sleepy side street as well as the logical main avenue of Market Street. At times, the tour takes viewers inside some of the buildings along the way to enjoy unique interior designs and significant architectural elements, including the Old Mint, a spectacular national landmark seldom seen by the general public. It also highlights some of the area's more colorful characters, such as famed Gold Rush era performer Lotta Crabtree.

    Il Volo We Are Love The three, young Italian tenors, Piero Barone (19), Ignazio Boschetto (18) and Gianluca Ginoble (17) of Il Volo proved to win the hearts of PBS viewers nationwide with broadcasts of their special from the Detroit Opera House, "Il Volo Takes Flight." Now, they return with their second special, "Il Volo We Are Love," at The Fillmore Theatre in Miami, Florida.
    Aside from providing a stunning vocal framework, "We Are Love," by songwriter/producer Mark Portmann (Celine Dion, Josh Groban) and Latin Grammy winner Edgar Cortazar, also allows Il Volo to show off their multilingual prowess, as they sing it in English, Spanish, French and Italian. Il Volo and album producer, Humberto Gatica again turned to Diane Warren for the album's lead track "Questo Amore." Besides being the perfect vocal opener it's a fresh Italian take on Warren's huge hit for Aerosmith, "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing". Warren also supplied the exquisitely sensitive English song "I Bring You To My Senses." The special also features a film song in "Historia De Un Amor," by Panamanian songwriter Carlos Eleta Almaran. A choice of many international artists including Nana Mouskouri and Cesaria Evora, it appeared in the 1956 Mexican movie of the same name.

    Moyers & Company [#222H] Taming Capitalism Run Wild Modern American capitalism is a story of continued inequality and hardship. Even a modest increase in the minimum wage faces opposition from those who seem to show allegiance first and foremost to America's wealthy and powerful. Yet some aren't just wringing their hands about our economic crisis; they're fighting back.
    In an encore broadcast, economist Richard Wolff joins Bill to shine light on the disaster left behind in capitalism's wake, and to discuss the fight for economic justice, including a fair minimum wage. A Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, and currently Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School, Wolff has written many books on the effects of rampant capitalism, including Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It.
    "We have this disparity getting wider and wider between those for whom capitalism continues to deliver the goods by all means, [and] a growing majority in this society facing harder and harder times," Wolff tells Bill. "And that's what provokes some of us to say it's a systemic problem."
