    Protect Your Memory with Dr. Neal Barnard Nothing is more important than your health, family and loved ones. Your connections with other people, entire relationships, and everything your loved ones have ever meant to you could be entirely wiped out, if you run the risk of memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer's disease, based on family history and lifestyle.
    In this program, Dr. Neal Barnard proves with groundbreaking research that there is in fact, lots you can do to protect your brain and memory! He dives into 3 simple steps you can take to derail the degenerative processes that could otherwise derail you and your memory: Skip "bad fat," Knock out free radicals, Exercise your brain. Dr. Barnard also warns against potential threats to the brain, including medications, drug interactions, sleep deprivation and physical conditions that can put your memory at risk.
    While research has led to clear answers about how to prevent lung cancer and reduce heart attacks, most people have absolutely no idea that it is possible to protect their memory, brain and connections with loved ones. Dr. Barnard provides viewers with the researched-backed information, giving them the power to protect their memory, beyond simply "waiting and seeing."

    American Masters [#2504H] Harper Lee: Hey Boo Reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" has been a national pastime for five decades - it is still selling nearly a million copies a year, its classic popularity and power are a common reference. And the courtroom image of Gregory Peck, as the passionate Atticus Finch, gave us an enduring picture for the novel's message. Behind it all was a young Southern girl named Nelle Harper Lee, who once said she wanted to be Alabama's Jane Austen.
    This program explores her life and unravels its mysteries, particularly why she never published again. Illuminated with family photos, revealing personal letters and an exclusive interview with her sister, Alice Finch Lee (100 years old), the film is steeped in the texture of the novel's Deep South and the social changes it inspired. Tom Brokaw, Rosanne Cash, Anna Quindlen, Scott Turow, Oprah Winfrey and Andrew Young reflect on how "Mockingbird" shaped their lives.
