    Doors Live at the Bowl '68 On July 5, 1968, the Doors took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl for a concert that has since passed into legend. Now, for the first time, the original film footage from the Hollywood Bowl has been digitally scanned and restored to present the show better and more complete than it has ever been seen before. Previously cut tracks have been returned to the running order and the sound has been newly remixed and mastered from the original multitrack tapes by the Doors' engineer and co-producer Bruce Botnick. This program is now the definitive edition of this famous performance. Performance highlights include: "Light My Fire," "Hello, I Love You," "Moonlight Drive" and "The End." duration 1:27:05   STEREO TVPG

The magnificent church that he built is still standing. Burt takes viewers on a tour of the city.

Next stop is the Residenz, the family palace built by the Wittlesbachs, who ruled Bavaria for more than 700 years. Just outside of town, a sobering visit to Dachau concentration camp reminds us of the dark side of Germany's past. Then, we move on to lighter vistas-a trip into the mountains takes us to "Mad" King Ludwig's fairytale castle Neuschwanstein and on an exhilarating luge ride.

    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#706H] A Ceviche State of Mind Nothing captures the spirit of a day at the beach in Mexico like the fresh seafood cocktail or ceviche. But you don't have to be on the coast to enjoy it. Rick finds a classic version at a favorite spot with the feel of a beachside fish shack - right in the heart of landlocked Mexico City. Then, in search of more "inland ceviche" surprises, he hits the streets and takes us to a major-league marisqueria with a menu to rival any great seafood restaurant in town - all created in a stand no larger than a fishing boat. Rick enjoys the bracing blend of octopus, fish, shrimp and hot sauce known as Vuelve a la Vida ("Come Back to Life," so named because it's a popular a hangover cure). At a nearby fish market, he checks out the catch of the day from both the Pacific and Gulf coasts, and shares tips on the best choices for homemade ceviche. In Chicago, he makes a quick Frontera Ceviche, a preparation that's been a mainstay at his Frontera Grill for years. Then we're off to Fishmart, a casual Mexico City seafood place, for a taste of what just might be the next hot trend in cold seafood: aguachile. It's a classic way to serve fresh shrimp and scallops with modern minimalist appeal - simply laying them on a plate and sprinkling them with lime juice, salt and fresh jalapenos. In his home kitchen, Rick recreates his version of Shrimp en Aguachile in a matter of minutes. Then it's on to the one of Mexico City's splashiest seafood hotspots, Contramar, to see how they dress up their traditional Ceviche Especial in a strikingly modern presentation. And that inspires Rick to take us behind the scenes at his fine-dining restaurant, Topolobampo, for one last inland ceviche recipe: his inventive, surprisingly easy Herb Green Ceviche. It's a mouthwatering fishing expedition that brings home the pleasures of ceviche - even when you're nowhere near the shore. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    BUDGET CUTS TO CALIFORNIA COURTS - California's top judge, Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, made the case before state lawmakers this week to restore funding to the courts.

While the president tried to broker a bipartisan budget deal, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan unveiled a new GOP budget proposal and Senator Patty Murray unveiled the Democratic blueprint. The reactions by both Democrats and Republicans: neither budget is likely to become law. So what will it take to bridge the partisan divide and reach a compromise?
    * Republicans are meeting just outside Washington this week for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Most of the focus will be about finding a way forward for the Republican Party. It will also be a chance for the rising stars of the party like Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to rally support from conservative activists for their potential 2016 presidential runs.

    Need To Know [#311H] The Family Planning Fight Continues In the two weeks since the sequester began and the effects are already being felt. One of the federal programs being cut is funding of family planning clinics - those serving primarily low-income and uninsured individuals. With $15 million in cuts slated to happen over the next year, things such as cancer screenings, testing for sexually transmitted infections, and reproductive health care services might suddenly be unavailable to more than 100,000 primarily low-income women across the country.
    Texas has already been down this road. In 2011, the state legislature slashed the budget for family planning services by $73 million dollars for 2012 and 2013. The result? More than 50 family planning clinics across the state closed. NTK's Mona Iskander traveled there last summer and filed this report.
    Anchor Scott Simon interviews Pam Belluck, a health and science writer for The New York Times, who looks at what's happening to these programs in other states.
    And from "American Voices," Judy Norsigian, one of the authors of "Our Bodies, Ourselves," provides an historical account of women's health policy debates over the past 40 years.
