    Alone in the Wilderness To live in a pristine land unchanged by man. To roam a wilderness through which few other humans have passed. To choose an idyllic site, cut trees and build a log cabin. To be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available. To be not at odds with the world, but content with one's own thoughts and company. Thousands have had such a dream, but Richard Proenneke lived them. He found a place, built a cabin, and stayed to become part of the country. This is a simple account of the day-to-day explorations and activities he carried out alone, and the constant chain of nature's events that kept him company. duration 57:22   TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

In her own unique headstrong manner, Anne manages to insult the town matriarch, Rachel Lynde (Patricia Hamilton) in a dispute over her looks; smashes her slate over Gilbert Blythe's (Jonathan Crombie) head ... when he calls her "carrots" during her first day of school; and accidentally dyes her hair green in an effort to turn her red hair black and salvage her wounded pride.

    Secrets of Selfridges Two words are synonymous with the department store Selfridges: luxury and London. However, Selfridges was the brain child of an American, Mr. Harry Gordon Selfridge, whose life is depicted in the PBS Masterpiece series "Mr. Selfridge." The real, flamboyant Mr. Selfridge revolutionized the way that Londoners shopped by introducing a new American retail model that made shopping less of a practical pursuit and more of a luxurious adventure.
    Keen to put the shopper's experience above all else it was Selfridge who coined the phrase "the customer is always right," an expression that has become the mantra of retail stores all over the world. Today, Selfridges remains as much of an attraction as it was when it opened in 1909, and Selfridge's dream of creating a sophisticated and adventurous shopping experience is enjoyed by people from every corner of the world, 362 days a year.
