    Johnny Carson: American Masters Johnny Carson was seen by more people than anyone else in American history - a fixture of national life, a piece of the cultural furniture, a part of the Zeitgeist. In exploring the career, the complexities and contradictions of the biggest star television has ever produced, American Masters had his estate's first-time-ever cooperation and permission - unrestricted entree into his personal archives and, perhaps, Carson's greatest legacy - all episodes of The Tonight Show from 1970-1992.
    Clues about his life, stories about his childhood and early days in the business can be found there - as well as in the expansive family albums and memorabilia. Original interviews with friends, colleagues, his wives and the many performers who appeared, or began, on The Tonight Show, offer additional texture and context - Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, among others.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#31] 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 13:46
