    Roadtrip Nation [#1108H] The Long Road Home After 34 interviews and several thousand miles on the odometer, it's the end of the road and the road-trippers have one interview left. In Milwaukee, WI, they interview Will Allen, founder and CEO of Growing Power, a nonprofit that proves local food systems can create jobs, improve the health of the community, fight racism, and bring urban and rural communities together. Will shares his journey from sharecroppers' son to basketball player and back to farming. He poses the question, "How do you stay energized?" and responds that you have to be passionate, and you must have the patience to put in the hard work to truly reach that point of passion where the hours fly by.
    As the road-trippers get back in the RV, they reflect on stories and lessons from the road. Tele'jon follows the common threads that connect the Leaders' experiences and truly understands what it means to say that everything is possible. Olivia has newfound confidence that there's no such thing as a mistake. There's no wrong thing you can do, so do everything. Ed vows to leave his safety net and come to the edge and jump. "I've found a new world and a new way of living," he says, "and I like it." At the airport, Olivia, Tele'jon and Ed say their last goodbyes and move ahead, determined to take advantage of everything the road has shown them.

    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

    Elizabeth I: War On Terror The summer of 1586 was one of England's darkest periods - particularly for Queen Elizabeth. The Queen feared for her life as a terrorist cell of Catholic extremists was planning to kill her and install Mary, Queen of Scots, on her throne. Behind the terrorists was the might of Spain, whose forces were ready to invade should the plot succeed. However, one man stood in their way - Sir Francis Walsingham, Elizabeth's spymaster and security chief. Ultimately he would become known as one of history's greatest spies, thanks to the extraordinary trap he set for Mary, Queen of Scots. Using a sophisticated network of double agents, informants and secret codes, Walsingham allowed Mary to believe she was masterminding a plot to destroy Elizabeth. ELIZABETH I: WAR ON TERROR is a gripping day-by-day account of the action, using dramatized scenes and location-based interviews with top historians. It illuminates the remarkable events across eight weeks in 1586, when the threat to Queen Elizabeth was at its greatest. This story transforms our understanding of Walsingham's - and England's - dark world. duration 47:54   STEREO TVPG
