    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1106] Taiwan - A Sense of Place - Part Three In 1869, Francis Galton, an English anthropologist argued that all talent was the result of heredity. No matter what the skill - from painting a great picture - to inventing a perfect recipe - it was always the result of the genes you received from your parents. Today, we know that he was smart, but wrong. What we are is the result of the interaction of our genes and our environment and our biology is continually altered by our environment. In these programs, Burt interviews a number of famous Taiwanese-Americans who grew up in traditional Taiwanese homes and immigrated to the United States, including an internet billionaire, a top Hollywood director, and a man who builds 6 million bicycles every year. Then, Burt travels to Taiwan to look at the key influences on their lives including one of Taiwan's most famous museums, a train that travels at over 150 miles an hour, big budget martial arts movies, a restaurant that presents dishes based on famous works of Chinese art, and one of the world's greatest choreographers. Burt tries to discover how the early life of these successful people affected the way they think now. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    American Masters [#2305] A Letter to Elia His name was brought front and center to the world again during the buzz and build-up to the March 1999 Academy Awards. Elia Kazan was to be recognized with an honorary Academy Award for lifetime achievement, an honor that divided Hollywood and fueled social commentary across the country. Then 89 years old and best remembered for his film directing in the 1950s -- On the Waterfront, East of Eden, A Streetcar Named Desire, Gentleman's Agreement, A Face in the Crowd -- Kazan remained a controversial figure. To many, he was personally and permanently emblematic of the sin of "naming names" before HUAC in the darkest days of the Hollywood Blacklist. To others, his extraordinary body of work deserved honors, despite any questionable behavior. One of his strongest supporters was Martin Scorsese, the director of this documentary. The film is a meditation on the nature of art and influence. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
