    American Masters [#2008] Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character America, in the 1960s and '70s, was in turmoil -- the civil rights struggle, the war in Vietnam and the sexual revolution defined a nation in conflict. But, at 10:00 PM every Saturday, in dorms and dens, in living rooms and bedrooms across the country, Americans watched "The Carol Burnett Show." For 11 years, this wild performer yelled like Tarzan and won our hearts, often breaking our hearts, with her edgy -- always sympathetic -- characters.

Their strategies have taken them to the very top of Yellowstone, and it's no simple matter when they meet. In every encounter, the opposition must be measured, strengths must be tested, and risks must be carefully weighed. Each time, one of them will have a tactical advantage -- but which one, and when? What emerges as each remarkable scene unfolds, is the keen awareness that runs through all of Yellowstone. Elk and eagle, coyote and raven, otter and owl, every creature must assess, decide, and act -- to fight or to flee? It's all in knowing your own strengths and limitations in the heat of the moment in Yellowstone. duration 55:15   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
