    Roadtrip Nation [#1107H] Rounding The Bend The road-trippers reach Long Island, NY, home of writer Beverly Donofrio. Beverly recounts a long list of personal failures - getting put in remedial English, a failed thesis, a lost job - between bouts of reflective laughter. You have to laugh, she tells the road-trippers, and thrive from adversity; take a real look at the opportunities that are presented to you, and say yes as often as you can.
    From there, the road-trippers head to Detroit, MI, where they encounter one of the renegade artists who is taking back the city. Spoken word poet Airea Dee Matthews urges the road-trippers to find rebirth in collapse. In the mostly abandoned city, the artists of Detroit don't see decay, but possibility. The road-trippers see the decay for themselves when they tour an abandoned building and experience the sense of freedom and energy that drives the artists' push for regeneration.
    Next, in Chicago, IL, Tele'jon struggles to reconcile his mentors' suggestion that he become a professor with his disillusion with the educational system. After interviewing Professor David Stovall, Tele'jon sees that David shares his concerns about access and privilege, and uses his position to create change. Tele'jon leaves the interview feeling more confident that he'll go to college.

    Agatha Raisin [#102(] Hell's Bells With a visit from the bishop looming, a newcomer to the village, Amanda Ballard, has gathered together a group of villagers to practice ringing the bells. Eager to fling herself into the cut and thrust of Carsely village life once more, Agatha Raisin is among their number. And although Agatha and Amanda have struck up a friendship, the same cannot be said for vicar's wife (and Ladies' Society extraordinaire) Sarah Bloxby, who resents Amanda's closeness with her husband Jez.
    When Amanda's body is found hanging from the bell ropes of the church in the dead of night, Agatha suspects there may be more to the case than routine suicide. Although Amanda was a spendthrift who'd amassed a great deal of debt, she seemed perfectly happy on the day of her death and in the prime of her life. Finding her suspicions falling on deaf ears, Agatha enlists cleaner Gemma Simpson and former assistant Roy Silver to help her investigate the crime - leading her to confront Jez, who may be harboring a secret, as well as Amanda's ties to her ex-husband in Bristol.

    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
