    Shirley Temple: America's Little Darling [#506] By the age of four, Shirley Temple had become a film star adored by adults and children alike, and had already broken records at the box office. Her golden locks, rosy cheeks and million dollar smile were irresistible, and the only thing that surpassed the charm of those qualities was her rare talent for acting and entertaining. This program is a wonderful retrospective of Temple's life and times. Tommy Tune hosts this fun-filled, toe-tapping documentary about the amazingly precocious child star whose films saved a movie studio from bankruptcy, and arguably raised the morale of Depression-weary Americans. duration 59:27   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#57] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers. The first three shows demonstrate and explain three to four new postures or exercises per show. The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. 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 13:46
