James, Carole and the band who became The Section - Danny Kortchmar, Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel - together performed a remarkable set of songs. Peter Asher, who was deeply involved in the original 1971 show, produced the recordings of the reunion; Martyn Atkins directed the filming with a nimble crew to capture what has become a much-anticipated and historic program. This program is an entire concert from the extraordinary 2007 reunion. duration 1:27:49   STEREO TVG

    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

Joseph travels to Guatemala City, Antiqua and Lago de Atitlan and discovers that while the observance is rich in Roman Catholic ceremony and tradition, at the same time it leaves room for the popular devotion and beliefs of the indigenous Mayan culture. In addition, the communal creation of hundreds of beautiful alfombras -- flower-strewn, multi-colored "carpets" -- that line the streets in front of the religious processions is something to behold. The pomp, color, emotion and devout expression all combine to create an once-in-a-lifetime travel experience. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
