    Tom Wolfe Gets Back to Blood Readers and fans of Tom Wolfe can now, for the first time, take a journey with the iconic American author to see and hear a story that has never been told ? the making of one of his novels. Set in Miami, like his soon-to-be-released book Back to Blood, this documentary tells the tale of Wolfe's latest literary adventure ? how the writer carefully concocted and crafted his new sun-soaked, immigrant-centric thriller. Tom Wolfe: Blood Lines, the only film ever made about Wolfe, captures rare, candid moments as he researches his subject matter with myriad sources in diverse locals in and around Miami. He is soaked during a regatta as bikini-clad revelers boat-hop across Biscayne Bay. He checks out white suits at thrift shops, visits new immigrant homes and rubs elbows with Miami's elite. The documentary is both an ode to the elusive literary giant and a voyage through the best and worst of wacky Miami. duration 57:01   STEREO TVG

    Architect Michael Graves: A Grand Tour For many, the name Michael Graves is synonymous with the "whistling bird" Alessi teakettle and an array of affordably stylish household products bearing the Graves Design imprint at Target stores. But Graves is also a renowned architect who transformed America's built environment with buildings in the 1980s that took a whimsical approach to classical forms. In early 2003, in the midst of his successful career, a mysterious and potentially fatal illness left him partially paralyzed. Graves survived after undergoing years of painful rehab, but his ordeal opened an unexpected new chapter in his illustrious career -- designing hospital furniture and homes for wounded war veterans. His goal is to transform traditionally cold institutions into environments that promote healing. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Architect Robert A.M. Stern: Presence of the Past As a boy growing up in working class Brooklyn, Robert A. M. Stern would gaze across the river at the gleaming towers of Manhattan. To him the city looked like Oz. Today this former outsider is arguably one of its Wizards. Stern heads a successful New York architectural firm with commissions from around the world. He is also the Dean of Architecture at Yale and prolific author whose tomes are measured not in pages but pounds. In 2011 Stern was chosen to receive the Richard H. Driehaus Prize, an international award honoring architects who create classical and traditional work. But Stern's reputation as a classically-grounded traditionalist is not the whole story. Stern's firm has built distinctive modernist structures and has helped shape a number of environments that rely on video and LED technology for their form. And at Yale, Stern's teaching staff includes hard-core modernists, many of whom who Stern calls close personal friends. "Architect Robert A.M. Stern: Presence of the Past" explores how Stern bridges the very divide in modern architecture that he has to define -- that between the modernists and the traditionalists. It puts Stern's work in the context of a larger debate among architects who reject the past, those who embrace it and those who pick and choose as the context requires. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    California's Gold [#4007] Drawbridge Drawbridge is a small, marshy island at the southern end of San Francisco Bay. People started going there in 1876 for the excellent hunting and fishing. By the early 20th Century, Drawbridge had become a full time community for a handful of families. It had also become something of a weekend resort. By the 1940s, pollution in the bay and urbanization nearby had destroyed most of the island's hunting and fishing. Today, Drawbridge is a ghost town of gray, weathered buildings sinking into the bay, and is part of the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Huell goes back to Drawbridge with some of the original inhabitants and gets a very special tour. duration 28:59
