    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#101B] The Black Atlantic (1500-1800) The Black Atlantic explores the truly global experiences that created the African American people. Beginning a full century before the first documented '20-and-odd' slaves arrived at Jamestown, Virginia, the episode portrays the earliest Africans, both slave and free, who arrived on these shores. But the Trans-Atlantic slave trade would soon become a vast empire connecting three continents. Through stories of individuals caught in its web, like a ten-year-old girl named Priscilla who was transported from Sierra Leone to South Carolina in the mid-18th century, we trace the emergence of plantation slavery in the American South. The late 18th century saw a global explosion of freedom movements, and The Black Atlantic examines what that Era of Revolutions-American, French and Haitian-would mean for African Americans, and for slavery in America. duration 1:07:22   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Battle of Britain: The Real Story On Wednesday 31 July 1940, Hitler authorized an all out attack on Britain. The stage was set for the biggest air battle in history. 2500 aircraft flying against the 650 fighters of the RAF. This documentary looks at the giant clash between two nations, examining how both countries used their resources during the Battle of Britain: from aircraft to air defense, and from intelligence to organization. As well as gaining analytical insight from veteran British fighter pilots, presenter James Holland travels to Germany where he meets some of the few surviving Battle of Britain Luftwaffe Aces and gains access to diaries offering further striking, firsthand testimony from those who fought in the battle. duration 59:13   STEREO TVRE

    Frontline [#3114H] Hunting The Nightmare Bacteria "Nightmare bacteria." That's how the CDC describes a frightening new threat spreading quickly in hospitals, communities, and across the globe. Frontline reporter David Hoffman investigates the alarming rise of untreatable infections: from a young girl thrust onto life support in an Arizona hospital, to a young American infected in India who comes home to Seattle, and an uncontrollable outbreak at the nation's most prestigious hospital, where eighteen patients were mysteriously infected and six died, despite frantic efforts to contain the killer bacteria. Fueled by decades of antibiotic overuse, the crisis has deepened as major drug companies, squeezed by Wall Street expectations, have abandoned the development of new antibiotics. Without swift action, the miracle age of antibiotics could be coming to an end. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    POV [#2606H] Neurotypical "Neurotypical" is an exploration of autism from the point of view of autistic people themselves. Four-year-old Violet, teenaged Nicholas and adult Paula occupy different positions on the autism spectrum, but they are all at pivotal moments in their lives. How they and the people around them work out their perceptual and behavioral differences becomes a remarkable reflection of the "neurotypical" world -- the world of the non-autistic -- revealing inventive adaptations on each side and an emerging critique of both what it means to be normal and what it means to be human. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

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 13:45

    Great Performances [#3806H] Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy A throw-away joke in the blockbuster Monty Python musical Spamalot may say it best, albeit bluntly: "You won't make it on Broadway if you don't have any Jews." The line is funny, but there is also more than a little truth in it. From Broadway's golden age, legendary names like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Gershwins, Arthur Laurents, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim immediately come to mind. And more recently, new generations of Broadway babies like Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Wicked), Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) and Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family) represent a small sampling of the Jewish talents who continue to leave their mark on musical theater. In "Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy," filmmaker Michael Kantor focuses in on this central question: what exactly is it that is so "Jewish" about Broadway? What is it about this unique American art form that has proven to be such fertile territory for Jewish artists of all kinds? To answer the question, this film combines interviews and extensive performance footage, including many of the rousing anthems and timeless ballads America has loved for the last 100 years. duration 1:26:46   SRND51 TVPG

    Burt Bacharach's Best (My Music Presents) Thi archival PBS special includes all the original artists with rare archival footage and clips from the 1960s-1970s. For over half-a-century, the immensely popular and immediately identifiable melodies of celebrated composer Burt Bacharach have touched millions of music lovers all over the world.
    Bacharach teamed with lyricist Hal David for a stunning run of classic songs, many in tandem with songstress Dionne Warwick ("Walk On By," "Anyone Who Had A Heart," "I Say A Little Prayer," "I'll Never Fall In Love Again"). British born Dusty Springfield enjoyed Bacharach hits with the wistful "Wishin' & Hopin'" and seductive "The Look Of Love" while Tom Jones popularized the playful "What's New Pussycat?" The smashes continued in the 1970s when The Carpenters reached #1 with "(They Long To Be) Close To You," following another chart-topper, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," the Oscar-winning tune sung by B.J. Thomas in the film "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid." The Fifth Dimension's Marilyn McCoo shined as a soloist on Burt & Hal's torch number "One Less Bell To Answer."
