    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

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#129] 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
