    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#127] 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

    Violin Masters: Two Gentlemen of Cremona Narrated by Alfred Molina, this film examines the amazing confluence of time and talent that occurred in the early years of the 17th century, when the two greatest violinmakers in history were working within steps of each other in the small Italian town of Cremona. One, Antonio Stradivari, is a household name; the other, Guarneri del Gesi, is considered a genius equal in every way to Stradivari, yet most outside of the music community have never heard of him. Why is that? Eminent historians and experts such as Charles Beare, Carlo Chiesa and Duane Rosengard weigh in on differences in productivity, clientele, life span, working technique and the "PR" factor that characterized the two artists, while 10 of the world's leading violinists, from Itzhak Perlman to Joshua Bell, share what makes them fall in love with a particular instrument and count on it, night after night, to enhance their sound. For unlike other Renaissance masterworks, these 300-year old Cremonese instruments of immense value are not kept under glass in museums; they are at once works of art --- and working tools. Credit for that lies not in arcane "secrets" of wood, varnish, beetles, or climate, but rather, in the hands and hearts of the men, Antonio Stradivari and Guarneri del Gesu, sculptors of the world's purest sound. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
