    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

    Music's Gonna Get You Through Henry Butler is not only a virtuoso jazz and blues artist, but also a passionate educator, photographer and advocate for disability rights. Drawing on his New Orleans heritage, extensive music study and experience as a blind black man, Butler founded the Creative Music and Jazz camp and crafted an eclectic curriculum that encouraged students to see art and music as tools for survival. 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)

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#19] 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
