    Prohibition [#103H] A Nation of Hypocrites Support for Prohibition diminishes in the mid-1920s as the playfulness of sneaking around for a drink gives way to disenchantment with its glaring unintended consequences. By criminalizing one of the nation's largest industries, the law has given savvy gangsters a way to make huge profits, and as they grow in power, rival outfits wreak havoc in cities across the country. The burgeoning tabloid newspaper industry fans the frenzy with sensational headlines and front-page photographs of murder scenes, while Al Capone holds press conferences and signs autographs. The wealthy Pauline Sabin begins publicly decrying that Prohibition has divided the nation into "wets, drys, and hypocrites." Nearly a century before, women had hoped Prohibition would make the country a safer place for their children. But by the late 1920s many American women believe that the "Noble Experiment" has failed. Sabin unifies women of all classes, refuting the notion that all women support Prohibition and denouncing the law itself as the greatest threat to their families. Sabin and others argue that repeal will bring in tax revenue and provide desperately needed jobs. After the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932, Congress easily passes the 21st Amendment, which repeals the 18th, and the states quickly ratify it. In December of 1933, Americans can legally buy a drink for the first time in 13 years. (Part 3 of 3) duration 1:46:42   SRND51 TVPG-L (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 3:00 am
    The Crash of 1929: American Experience [#308] By 1929, Charles Mitchell, President of the National City Bank (now Citibank), had popularized the idea of selling stock and high-yield bonds directly to the smaller investor. Mitchell and a very small group of bankers, brokers, and speculators manipulated the stock market, grew wealthy, and helped create the economic boom of the Twenties. This film chronicles the year the boom went bust through the words and experiences of the descendants of these titans of finance. While the market was rising, presidents and economists confidently predicted America would soon enter a time when there would be no more poverty, no more depressions-a "New Era" when everyone could be rich. Instead, it was the rich who became richer. "The Crash of '29" captures the unbounded optimism of an age, at a time when the stock market promised permanent prosperity. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Snorkeling, sailing, horseback riding and sand-boarding down 100-meter high dunes are activities that are all on the agenda, as well as, a sunset swim with horses.

    This Old House [#3117H] Barrington Project, Part 1 of 10 The TOH crew opens the Barrington, Rhode Island, project aboard the motor sailor Liberty bound for the Ocean State via scenic Narragansett Bay. On Barrington Beach, homeowner Geoff Allen shows master carpenter Norm Abram and host Kevin O'Connor why they bought their 1925 modified cape - not for its 1950s and 1970s-era additions, but for the outstanding location. Inside, his wife, Michelle Forcier, shows Kevin that the kitchen has not been remodeled in decades, and how they hope to remove everything that is outdated and open up the new space to the beautiful water views. In the basement, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey shows Norm a fairly standard scene - outdated mechanicals with low efficiency and a 100-amp electrical service that should be updated. While there appear to be no problems with the structure, the biggest challenge will be building to withstand the marine environment, as well as the hurricanes, wind, and sideways rain that can occur by the water. In Providence, Kevin meets architect Mary Brewster to look at the plans for the renovation with the help of a useful 3D software program. Norm visits local builder Andy Tiplady in Bristol to see a classic new home he recently built that represents the apex of seaside living in Rhode Island. Back at the house, Andy's crew has loaded in, and Kevin lends a hand as they begin demo of the 1950s porch addition and start gutting the first floor. duration 25:46   STEREO TVG

    Austin City Limits [#803] Roy Orbison This live version from the August 5, 1982, telecast has been digitally remastered and edited. Roy's appearance was a milestone in the 25-year history of Austin City Limits. He became the first bona fide legend to step onto their stage. His performance took the show to a new level, a larger audience and the status of being a nationally recognized television program. After making a few live appearances at that time, this proved to be the catalyst that brought Roy back to the forefront of the popular music scene. Roy lived up to his reputation of mystique and intrigue. He had just come out of semi-retirement, and not many people had seen him perform live in years. This was certainly his first major performance on television - a full hour - since his comeback began. It was a rare event. From the moment he hit the stage, the audience was on its feet. Many of his songs started with barely a whisper; then they began to vibrate and build, getting more and more intense, until finally, they soared off into the blue to the cheers of the crowd. In the course of the evening, he received more standing ovations than any other performer on any other show. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

Love at First Sight won the top prize at six film festivals and was shortlisted for a 2012 Academy Award.
    DANNY & ANNIE - USA

He has been married to Annie for 25 years. The couple recounts their life together from their first date (on which Danny proposed) to Danny's final days with terminal cancer. This remarkable couple personifies the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of everyday people. Directed and animated by brothers Mike and Tim Rauch.
