    Eyes on the Prize: Then and Now This special re-examines the groundbreaking documentary series, "Eyes on the Prize," from the filmmakers' perspective, and the viewpoint of civil rights activists then and now. This intergenerational dialogue takes the civil rights movement and places it under a microscope - revisiting, reframing and re-asking key questions while contextualizing those issues in a contemporary way.
    With the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, the 60th Anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the recent national spotlight on issues of race, inequality and police brutality, the time has come to have such critical conversations about our storied past, present and future. While there have been victories to celebrate, the country continues to be plagued by some of the same problems of yesteryear. What does all of this mean for the next generation?
    Featuring interviews with "Eyes on the Prize" filmmakers, thought leaders, current day activists, scholars, and civil rights leaders, this special will explore how far we've come, how far we have yet to go, the meaning and significance of the ongoing struggle, and the next steps towards equality.

    Education of Harvey Gantt Even after the Supreme Court decided the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, South Carolina's General Assembly passed numerous acts designed to maintain segregation in the state's schools, parks and other public facilities. In his 1959 inaugural address, newly elected Governor Fritz Hollings declared he would not integrate South Carolina schools. In fact, South Carolina held firm to its segregationist stance through 1962, despite every other state integrating at least one of its colleges and universities. When South Carolina's institutions of higher learning finally opened their doors to African Americans in 1963, they did so in a systematic, nonviolent manner. Unlike Mississippi, Georgia and Alabama, where desegregation efforts met with hostility and even bloodshed, South Carolina integrated its public colleges and universities peacefully. On January 28, 1963, a young black man from Charleston named Harvey Gantt enrolled at Clemson College, making him the first African American accepted to a white school in South Carolina. The absence of drama surrounding Gantt's enrollment the result of nearly two years of detailed preparation and planning on the part of college administrators, state politicians and business leaders made headlines at the time, but soon it faded from the public consciousness. Narrated by Tony-winning actor Phylicia Rashad, THE EDUCATION OF HARVEY GANTT tells this pivotal, yet largely forgotten, story of desegregation. Interviews with Gantt, distinguished scholars and civil rights veterans, and archival footage and reenactment illuminate the events leading up to Gantt's enrollment, the unfolding of entrance day and the impact of Clemson's integration on the state and the nation. In recounting this chapter of American civil rights history, the documentary illustrates how a determined young man, his family and his legal champions brought about permanent change. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#83] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers. The first three shows demonstrate and explain three to four new postures or exercises per show. The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46

    Bee Gees: One Night Only The Bee Gees, in this glossy musical and visual event, perform their biggest singles from the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s, plus songs from their recent CD, Still Waters. Taped at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in November 1997, the concert features the timeless harmonies of Robin, Barry, and the late Maurice Gibb, and includes a special appearance by guest artist Celine Dion, performing "Immortality." Counted among the most successful musical groups of all time, the Bee Gees are the only recording artists to write and produce six straight number-one singles, and the first composers to have five songs in the Top Ten at the same time.

    With a string of hit singles, the Bee Gees became pop stars in the late 1960s. But their participation on the soundtrack of the generation-defining film Saturday Night Fever shot them to mega-stardom in the mid-'70s. Featuring a slew of pop/disco standards like "Stayin' Alive, " "Night Fever" and "How Deep is Your Love," the album remains the biggest selling soundtrack in history, with 40 million copies sold to date.

    The Bee Gees continued their success into the '80s and'90s, with platinum albums like Spirits Having Flown and successful collaborations with the likes of Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick and Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers. In 1997 they were inducted into the Rock ' n' Roll Hall of Fame, and received career achievement awards from the American Music Awards and World Music Awards - tributes to the lasting quality of their work.

    Song List: You Should Be Dancing, Alone, Massachusetts, To Love Somebody, I've Gotta Get a Message to You, Words, Islands in the Stream, Don't Throw it All Away, NightFever, More Than a Woman, Lonely Days, New York Mining Disaster 1941, I Can't See Nobody, And the Sun Will Shine, Nights on Broadway, Heart breaker, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, Immortality, Tragedy, I Started a Joke, Grease, Jive Talkin', How Deep is Your Love, Stayin' Alive, You Should Be Dancing.
