    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#49] 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 13:45

In each, 3 people who have come to the US from Taiwan and achieved considerable success, describe the reasons they immigrated to America, what they have accomplished in the US and what they recommend to visitors in their native country. Chien-Ming Wang (star pitcher for the New York Yankees), Dr. Henry Lee (the world's leading forensic scientist who appeared as an expert witness in the O.J. Simpson trial), Dr. David Ho (foremost authority on AIDS research), and others tell us what to see, eat, drink, visit and shop for in Taiwan. Burt takes his video team to Taiwan and follows their advice. The programs give you a unique insight into Taiwan and are equally entertaining - either for those staying at home or for the seasoned traveler. duration 25:50   STEREO TVG

    Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen [#111] Learning to Love Lamb The statistics are in and the winner is...definitely not lamb. Americans consume less than 1 pound per person per year.

You cannot consider yourself a well-rounded grill master until you've mastered lamb. Fall-off-the-bone-tender lamb Barbacoa marinated in a smoky adobo sauce.

    American Masters [#2401H] Troubadours: Carole King/James Taylor & The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter In the wake of the turbulent 1960s, a new style of song and songwriter came to the fore -- a style marked by vulnerable introspection, raw, naked emotion and young singer/songwriters who shared their most intimate thoughts, backed by little more than a lone acoustic guitar or simple piano. Never before in music had the line between the songwriters and the songs seemed so transparent. They descended on the old club the Troubadour in Los Angeles, the emerging center of the American music scene - and the careers of James Taylor, Carole King, Randy Newman, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens and so many others were launched. Carole King, one of the great songwriters of the '60s, started playing piano in James Taylor's band, creating a bond that they still share today. It is through them and their unique voices that we chronicle this group of musicians, who played before, after, and alongside them. duration 1:26:46   SRND51 TVPG
