  • 1:00 am
    American Masters [#2207H] Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women The author of Little Women is an almost universally recognized name. Her reputation as a morally upstanding New England spinster, reflecting the conventional propriety of late 19th-century Concord, is firmly established. However, raised among reformers and Transcendentalists and skeptics, the intellectual protege of Emerson and Hawthorne and Thoreau, Alcott was actually a free thinker with democratic ideals and progressive values about women -- a worldly careerist of sorts. Most surprising is that she led, under the pseudonym A.M. Barnard, a literary double life, undiscovered until the 1940s. As Barnard, Alcott penned scandalous, sensational works with characters running the gamut from murderers and revolutionaries to cross-dressers and opium addicts -- a far cry from her familiar fatherly mentors, courageous mothers and appropriately impish children. duration 1:26:18   SRND51 TVPG
  • 2:30 am
    Powder & The Glory The story of women's entrepreneurship through the lens of the creation and development of the rival business empires of Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein. When they first opened their shops 100 years ago, cosmetics were worn primarily by prostitutes and performers, and businesses were run mostly by men. These two indomitable immigrants changed all that and transformed the way we look at ourselves. Starting from nothing in one of the few fields open to them, these creative women pioneered what is today the $150 billion global health and beauty industry. At the same time, they were feisty rivals. Although they lived and worked only blocks apart in New York for over 50 years, by design they never met. Whenever one launched a successful product, the other sought to outdo her rival with a bigger success, and as soon as possible. Their competing companies defined the business of beauty, making cosmetics both newly respectable and, finally, indispensable. Along the way they developed many advertising and marketing techniques that became part of the business landscape, and they themselves became household names and cultural icons. Their influence extended beyond the realm of cleansing creams and face powders to encompass trends in art, architecture and popular culture. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 4:00 am
    POV [#2214H] Patti Smith: Dream of Life Shot over 11 years by renowned fashion photographer Steven Sebring, this documentary is an intimate portrait of the legendary rocker, poet and artist. Following Smith's personal reflections over a decade, the film explores her many art forms and the friends and poets who inspired her -- William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Robert Mapplethorpe and Michael Stipe. She emerges as a crucial, contemporary link between the Beats, punks and today's music. Shot in lush, dark tones, featuring rare performance clips and narrated by the artist herself, "Patti Smith: Dream of Life" is an impressionistic journal of a multi-faceted artist that underscores her unique place in American culture. The film is the winner of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival Excellence in Cinematography Award: Documentary. duration 1:56:35   SRND51 TV14-L

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#67] 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 13:47

We'll tour the Red Onion Saloon; ride the White Pass and Yukon Railroad and check out 1,500 square miles of ice cap. duration 27:11   STEREO TVG
