    The Kate [#102H] Rickie Lee Jones Two-time Grammy-winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. Her latest release, The Other Side of Desire, explores a new chapter in her life--her first album of new original material in ten years. In The Kate, Rickie Lee's performance provides a window into the meteoric rise and fade of the early days and the soul-stirring place her song writing emanates from now. Charming the audience with fan favorites like "Chuck E's In Love" and the playful new tune penned for her daughter, "Jimmy Choos," to the haunting piano-driven ballad "Infinity," Rickie Lee Jones shares with audiences her signature bravado. duration 54:40   STEREO TVPG

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)

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)

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG
