We also find out about Aachen's spice cookies and why the people buy over 45,000 tons of them each year.

    Soundtrack for a Revolution: American Experience [#2310H] This documentary tells the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music - the freedom songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, in paddy wagons and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. The music enabled African-Americans to sing words they could not say and it was crucial in helping protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. The infectious energy of the songs swept people up and empowered them to fight for their rights. This doc is a blend of heart-wrenching interviews, dramatic images and contemporary performances by top artists, including John Legend, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean and The Roots. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: DVI)

Kennedy, among many others. At the sites of some of his most famous photos, Scherman shares candid and insightful recollections and seldom-seen images of politicians and celebrities of that era. In present-day and archival interviews, singer Judy Collins, Life journalist and People magazine founder Richard B. Stolley and other notables share their thoughts on Scherman and his enduring work. duration 1:28:39   STEREO TVPG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#49] 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 13:45

    PBS Arts from Miami: Miami City Ballet Dances Balanchine and Tharp This program spotlights one of America's finest regional ballet companies, Edward Villella's Miami City Ballet. The program -- a trio of signature works by George Balanchine and Twyla Tharp respectively -- showcases the company's critically acclaimed performances of Balanchine's "Square Dance" and "Western Symphony," as well as Tharp's "The Golden Section." From their home base in Miami Beach (and utilizing four performing venues in south Florida), Miami City Ballet is now approaching 26 years of accomplished dancing with more than 88 ballets in its repertoire. Villella is one of America's most celebrated male dancers; the artistry and versatility he exhibited during his long career with the New York City Ballet (1957 to 1975), and in concert appearances across the United States and Europe and on television, did much to popularize the role of the male in dance. In 1985, Villella became the founding artistic director of the Miami City Ballet, which has won worldwide acclaim under his direction. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVG
