As more arson attacks occur, it appears that Anna may be connected and that Wallander must reconcile with Linda and join forces to find Anna at all costs.

    Broadway Or Bust [#103H] And The Winner Is ... The show at New York's Minskoff Theatre is the final act and crowning highlight of the miniseries. The 60 finalists prepare for the big day. In just six hours, the lights will go up, the theater will be filled and, with the downbeat of the orchestra leader's baton, it'll be show time. Going into the final competition awards show, all of the judges have a short list of top contenders, but during the show itself, they'll be asked once again to give scores to the leading performers based on the group performances and individual medleys. At intermission, the judges will cut the group to six finalists. Those six will perform their solos, and after another round, the judges will choose the two winners. In the words of director Van Kaplan, "This week ... is going to shape their whole lives, whether they go into the theater or not." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Woody Allen: American Masters [#101H] Part One His is one of the longest and most prolific careers in show business - beginning with joke-writing and stand-up comedy in the 1950s and morphing into the world of film in the late 1960s. As a writer, director and/or actor, he has averaged a film a year for the past 40 years. But Woody Allen has remained a notoriously private man. After 20 years of begging, the Emmy Award-winner Robert Weide gained unprecedented access to the expanse of this film legend's life and creative process. Beginning with his Brooklyn childhood and deeply exploring this ultimate "independent filmmaker's" writing habits, casting, directing and relationship with his actors, Weide follows Allen over a year and a half, from the London set of 2009's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" through to 2011's "Midnight in Paris" - both feted at the Cannes Film Festival - featuring scenes of Allen's inner sanctums at home and in the editing room. duration 1:55:18   SRND51 TV14
