    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1502H] Coming to America The final decades of the 1800s found much of Europe in a losing battle with over-population.

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

    I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can't be true. From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out. Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family ... while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers. Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations. Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices. Inspired by the peaceful death her mother was almost denied, Bryant began gathering information from national experts in palliative care, geriatrics, oncology, bio-ethics, psychology, and spirituality. I'll Have It My Way credibly and passionately presents the case for personal responsibility in the healthcare, legal, and procedural decisions that all of us must make - if they are not to be made for us. By making our wishes known and communicating them effectively, we remove the burden from our loved ones of making our choices for us that will enable us to live our lives more fully to the end. I'll Have It My Way provides useful information and a thought-provoking four-step guide that takes the viewer on a journey of discovery to learn what a life well-lived means to them. duration 1:26:56   STEREO TVG
