    Washington Week [#5203H] * President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney spent the week on the campaign trail trying to define the presidential election and stakes and distinguish their individual strengths from their opponent's weaknesses. The Obama campaign and even some Republicans continue to put pressure on the former Massachusetts governor to release more income tax returns and be more transparent about his wealth and tax history. Meanwhile the Romney campaign ramped up its criticism of President Obama's economic policies and has begun using the president's own words on entrepreneurship against him. Polls show the campaign is in large part a battle for the middle-class, but are the attack ads and sharp campaign rhetoric winning supporters or turning off voters? We'll get answers and analysis from Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post and Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times. Plus Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News will report on just how much money both presidential campaigns and outside groups are spending in what will likely be the most expensive presidential election in history.
    * Overseas the 16-month old uprising in Syria between government troops and rebel forces continued. In the capital Damascus four major government officials were killed in a deadly bombing attack. On Thursday the UN Security Council tried to pass a resolution to impose further sanctions on President Basha al-Assad's regime but it was vetoed by Russia and China. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will have the latest on growing concerns about the Syrian government's next move amidst reports that chemical weapons have been moved within the country.

    American Masters [#2103] You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story - A Rising Power: 1923-1937 In April 1923, four brothers from Ohio officially incorporated their new motion picture company. By the end of the decade, Warner Bros. hit it big with the sound of The Jazz Singer, the gangster personas of Edward G. Robinson and James Cagney and the musicals of Busby Berkeley. Directed by the award winning filmmaker and film critic Richard Schickel and narrated by Clint Eastwood, this 5-hour series chronicles the legacy of Warner Bros. with limitless access to movie clips and rare archival interviews and gives us the history of 20th century. Illuminating the footage and archival interviews are on-camera discussions with Warren Beatty, George Clooney, Clint Eastwood, Sidney Lumet, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg, among many others.
    You Ain't Heard Nothin' Yet (1923-1935) - Episode one introduces the four Youngstown, Ohio, brothers (Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack L. Warner) who officially incorporated their new motion picture company on April 4, 1923. "Rin Tin Tin" may have put them on the map, but soon gave way to a unique hard-boiled, hard-times cinema ethos. Tough guys James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson dominated the new gangster genre, tough dame Barbara Stanwyck headlined racy melodramas and even the chorus kids in the dazzling musicals were one bad break away from the streets. Key interviews: Busby Berkeley, Edward G. Robinson, Alfred Hitchcock and William Wellman. Key films: "The Jazz Singer," "Public Enemy," "42nd Street," "Baby Face" and "Little Caesar."

    Road to Perfect Health with Brenda Watson We all know the saying, "All roads lead to Rome." Well, according to digestive care expert, Brenda Watson, they all lead to the digestive system - at least where our health is concerned. In this program, Brenda shows us how all health ailments can be linked to an imbalance in the digestive system.
    With over 20 years experience helping people overcome health challenges, Ms. Watson has been able to help people return to health - whether they suffer from typical digestive problems or chronic fatigue - by balancing the good and bad bacteria in their gut. Brenda shows us that a well-balanced intestinal tract makes up a large part of our immune system, or our body's "Gut Protection System" (GPS).
    Unfortunately our GPS sometimes malfunctions and becomes out of balance, leading our health in the wrong direction. When this happens it leads to sickness and health problems. Ms. Watson shows us that no matter what our sickness or condition, putting our GPS in balance will put us back on the road to better health. Even if you don't have a heath problem, you need to keep your GPS in balance. How do you do this? Brenda gives a clear and concise plan to maintain a healthy, well-balanced GPS.
