    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#709] In Taiwan, A Sense of Place - Part 1 Part 1 of 2. These two programs take a new approach to television travel. In each, 3 people who have come to the US from Taiwan and achieved considerable success, describe the reasons they immigrated to America, what they have accomplished in the US and what they recommend to visitors in their native country. Chien-Ming Wang (star pitcher for the New York Yankees), Dr. Henry Lee (the world's leading forensic scientist who appeared as an expert witness in the O.J. Simpson trial), Dr. David Ho (foremost authority on AIDS research), and others tell us what to see, eat, drink, visit and shop for in Taiwan.

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#103] Into The Fire (1861-1896) Into the Fire examines the most tumultuous and consequential period in African American history: the Civil War and the end of slavery, and Reconstruction's thrilling but tragically brief "moment in the sun." From the beginning, African Americans were agents of their own liberation, forcing the Union to confront the issue of slavery by fleeing the plantations and taking up arms to serve with honor in the United States Colored Troops. After Emancipation, African Americans sought to realize the promise of freedom-rebuilding families shattered by slavery; demanding economic, political and civil rights; even winning elected office. Just a few years later, however, an intransigent South mounted a swift and vicious campaign of terror to restore white supremacy and roll back African American rights. Yet the achievements of Reconstruction would remain very much alive in the collective memory of the African American community. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Jimi Hendrix: American Masters Considered a pioneering electric guitarist, one of the most influential in the history of popular music, Jimi Hendrix only had four years of mainstream exposure and recognition, but his music and riveting stage presence left an enormous, enduring legacy. Tracing his roots from Seattle to international stardom, this is his definitive story, illustrated by interviews with Hendrix at venues such as the Miami Pop Festival and illuminated with commentary by Paul McCartney, Noel Redding, Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer and others. Poignant, protected footage from his final performance in Germany in September 1970, just 12 days before his tragic drug-related death at age 27, concludes the film. In what would have been his 70th year, the Hendrix estate has cooperated fully with this film, releasing closely held performance footage that has, literally, never been seen before as well as an extensive archive of photographs, drawings and family letters. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TV14
