    American Masters [#2605H] Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did for Love By age 31, Marvin Hamlisch had won four Grammys, an Emmy, three Oscars, a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize, making him one of only 2 PEGOT's ever. Hit after hit -"The Way We Were," "Nobody Does It Better" and scores for The Sting, Sophie's Choice and the Broadway juggernaut A Chorus Line, made him the go-to composer for film and Broadway producers and the go-to performer for every president since Reagan. His streak was unprecedented. A child prodigy accepted at Juilliard at age six, Hamlisch's classical training laid the groundwork for his popular compositions. A rich archival legacy, interviews with his A-list collaborators, and cooperation from his family combine to tell this rich and engrossing story. duration 1:25:46   SRND51 TVPG

    Angels A captivating documentary that explores the historical and modern-day role of angels in our society.

Angels protect, advise, judge, translate, sing, heal, entertain, and even cook. This film reveals why angels have such a central role in so many cultures, and explores how angels pervade everyday life. It also features first-hand accounts from those who claim they have guardian angels looking after them, and takes a look at the darker side of these spiritual beings, as exemplified by the Hell's Angels. duration 52:05   STEREO TVG
