    Black America Since MLK: and Still I Rise [#101] Out of the Shadows/Move On Up The series begins in 1965, in the wake of Malcolm X's assassination and the passage of the Voting Rights Act - which was followed 5 days later by an incendiary explosion of black rage: the Watts riots. It moves on to explore the burgeoning Black Power movement which took much of America (including many old-school black leaders) by surprise, telling stories of Stokely Carmichael, the Black Panthers and cultural icons like James Brown alongside an exploration of the cultural trends that expressed black pride - from Afros and dashikis to "Soul Train." duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: none)

    Black America Since MLK: and Still I Rise [#102] Keep Your Head Up/Touch The Sky The series continues, charting a wave of new opportunities and new consciousness that would lift African Americans to undreamed-of heights - in Ivy League schools, major corporations, the Supreme Court and even the White House. While portraying these unprecedented victories, Gates also questions why another swath of African Americans have been left behind - as the country's class divide has deepened over the last 50 years causing the most vulnerable to suffer in ways that Dr. King and his peers in the civil rights movement would never have thought possible. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: none)

    Victor Borge: 100 Years of Music & Laughter! This special, narrated by Rita Rudner, features Borge's funniest and most memorable skits - a truly unparalleled collection not to be missed. Victor always said that, "a smile is the shortest distance between people."
    Hailed as a child prodigy, Victor Borge began his performing career with a piano debut in 1926 at the age of 17. For 8 decades he was never out of the spotlight. "The Great Dane" of comedy, as the beloved international humorist and musician was known, was celebrated across the world for his unique blend of comedy and music.
    Don't miss his one-liners, falls, double takes, his mastery of piano variations and his outrageous stage antics. Victor Borge has been recognized as one of the funniest performers the world has ever known. The program contains such classic comedy bits as the timeless "Phonetic Punctuation," "Inflationary Language," "Autumn Leaves" with Robert Merrill, "The Opera Singer" with Marylyn Mulvey and many more.

    Great Performances [#3813B] Pavarotti: A Voice for the Ages Like Enrico Caruso before him, Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the greatest male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. Audiences adored his larger than life personality, childlike charm, generous figure, and happy go lucky style. This program celebrates the 50th anniversary since his career debut in Amsterdam, Vienna, Zurich and finally London where he substituted for the ailing Giuseppe di Stefano as Rodolfo in La Boheme.
    Even today, it is his powerful sound with its natural grace and brilliant color which still leads many to consider him the world's greatest voice. It is Pavarotti who brought opera to the masses and made football fans worldwide fall in love with "Nessun dorma." This program includes that hit and other beloved arias from La Boheme, Rigoletto and Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini including "Mamma" and "O Sole Mio"; favorite sacred songs like "Ave Maria" and "O Holy Night"; as well as popular duets with Bono, Sting and Eric Clapton.
