    History Detectives [#509] Bill Pickett Saddle/Mckinley Casket Flag/Hitler Films * Bill Pickett Saddle - A Staten Island woman owns a well-worn saddle with the name "Bill Pickett" burned into it. She believes it was once owned by legendary cowboy Bill Pickett, an African-American Wild West Show and film star. Pickett invented bulldogging, the rodeo event now known as steer wrestling. His back story is perhaps most intriguing: Born to slave parents, Pickett rose to entertain kings and dignitaries on an international tour of his Wild West show; he counted among his friends Will Rogers and Tom Mix. Tukufu Zuberi heads to Oklahoma to visit the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, meets a real-life steer wrestler and talks with a 101 Ranch historian about the legacy of the legendary "Bulldogger."
    * McKinley Casket Flag - A Battle Ground, Washington, man has a flag that he claims once draped the casket of President William McKinley. The 25th president was assassinated in 1901 at the Pan- American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, by anarchist Leon Czolgosz. The contributor says the flag was given to his great-grandfather, Charles Kennedy, who served as McKinley's bodyguard. Wes Cowan travels to Cincinnati and Canton, Ohio, to investigate McKinley's legacy through the eyes of his supporters and his detractors.
    * Hitler Films - A contributor in Staten Island, New York, has several film cans, unseen since World War II, that he believes may contain German home movies of Nazi officials, possibly even Hitler. He received them from his wife's uncle, a GI in Germany, who found the cans in the bombed ruins of the Old Opera House in the northern Bavarian town of Bayreuth. The first glimpse of one of these fragile reels reveals footage of Hitler, Goebbels, Goering and Himmler arriving at the Richard Wagner opera festival, staged annually in Bayreuth. In New York City, Gwen Wright examines this film's depiction of the Nazis' manipulation of art and culture to bolster the party's following.

    Better Brain Solution with Steven Masley, MD In The Better Brain Solution with Dr. Steven Masley, Dr. Masley informs us of the two urgent epidemics we are facing now--escalating rates of disabling memory loss and rapidly increasing rates of diabetes and pre-diabetes--and yet both conditions are largely preventable. Most people today understand the effect that elevated blood sugar has on their cardiovascular health, but few understand that insulin resistance is significantly damaging to the brain. In the The Better Brain Solution, Dr. Masley offers a program that, in the fight against diabetes, memory loss, and cognitive decline, can reverse insulin resistance, enhance cognitive performance, and stop cognitive decline before it is too late. Dr. Masley gives the viewers the tools he has developed for his own private patients to prevent and reverse this metabolic syndrome. He explores the impact of insulin resistance on the brain and the heart/brain/diabetes connection, explaining how cognitive function and memory work. The Better Brain Solution offers the viewer a comprehensive plan for achieving optimal brain health, providing information on brain-boosting foods and supplements as well as providing a practical way to assess cognitive function. duration 1:56:58   STEREO TVG
