    Peter, Paul and Mary - 25th Anniversary Concert In 1986 the legendary Peter, Paul and Mary marked their 25th anniversary with the taping of their very first PBS TV special. Now, two and a half decades later, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the formation of the group in the famed Greenwich Village, this joyous yet deeply moving live concert is being re-released for March 2012 pledge. Peter, Paul and Mary's 25th Anniversary Concert features songs that became, for many, the soundtrack of their generation. In an era in which folk music became America's messenger of hope, Peter, Paul and Mary sounded a call to conscience that, to this day, remains an enduring part of our national quest for equity and justice. Perhaps as much as anyone, in a period of great turbulence and transformation, Peter, Paul and Mary inspired America to be the best we could be. That, indeed, is a formidable legacy and one that has made this trio and its music a true and enduring national treasure. duration 1:59:00   STEREO TVG

    California's Gold [#9009] Norconian Resort Huell travels to Norco and tours the magnificent but now abandoned Norconian Hotel. In the mid 1920's, Rex B. Clark, an unmatched visionary of his time, accomplished the near impossible by constructing the world-class Norconian Resort in a remote area of Southern California. The Norconian was an immediate success and frequented by the rich elite and Hollywood's finest. Unfortunately, the Club never made a nickel as the Stock Market crash and subsequent economic depression forced Clark to give up his dream after a 10 year fight.
    The story didn't end there. The fabulous resort was converted into one of the pre-eminent Naval Hospitals in the US; a facility that treated survivors of Pearl Harbor and pioneered the use of penicillin, the polio vaccine and state of the art rehabilitation techniques. Subsequently, one of the finest Naval Weapons Testing sites in the nation and the California Rehabilitation Center, the first state funded addict treatment center in the country, called the old resort home; adding to the Norconian's rich and fabulous history. Huell travels to the site with Kevin Bash who is a filmmaker and historian to see this faded but beautiful structure in all its glory.
