    Byron Janis Story Byron Janis is considered one of the great concert pianists of the 20th century and perhaps, in American history; yet few know his story. This program recounts the musician's miraculous, unusual and inspiring life. Janis overcame every challenge - a tragic childhood accident, five hand surgeries, severe bursitis and debilitating arthritis - and today serves as an inspiration for those who have triumphed over adversity. In his own words, the legend talks about his boyhood trauma; his tutelage under the strong-willed Vladimir Horowitz; his debut at New York City's Carnegie Hall in 1948; his cultural exchange with the Soviet Union in 1960; his appearance on the Ed Sullivan Showand his 1984 performance at the White House, in which he revealed his battle with arthritis to the public for the first time. The program also features interviews with conductor Lorin Maazel, actress Marian Seldes, pianist Emanuel Ax, and Byron's second wife, Maria (Gary Cooper's daughter) and his son, Stefan. duration 56:14   STEREO TVG

This program tracks the impact of Butler's music and philosophy on a group of blind and visually impaired teens who gather in New Orleans to train with the master at his week-long summer camp. Butler tells his students they can achieve success by applying the musical principles of focus, discipline, release, practice and perseverance to their everyday lives. The doc shows how valuable music and its lessons can be for both students and teacher alike. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Portraits of Emotion This documentary follows over the course of 4 years the life of 14-year-old Jonathan Lerman, an artistic prodigy who is diagnosed with autism, a lifelong developmental disability that affects learning, communication and social interaction. While capable of drawing astonishing portraits that capture the nuances of human emotion, Jonathan is unable to effectively verbally communicate his feelings. By giving the audience an in-depth look inside Jonathan's life, the film builds awareness about the effects that autism has on a family over time. By answering questions about why people with autism act the way they do, it makes viewers more comfortable with people who are "different," and helps ameliorate society's attitudes toward the disabled. Sometimes heart-wrenching, at other times comedic, Jonathan's story encourages people to reevaluate their assumptions about intelligence, talent and disability. duration 56:40   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
