    Bing Crosby Rediscovered: American Masters Bing Crosby (May 3, 1903-October 14, 1977) was, without doubt, the most popular and influential multi-media star of the first half of the 20th century. For more than 3 decades, through radio, film, television and records, he reigned supreme. 37 years after his death, he remains the most recorded performer in history with nearly 400 hit singles, an achievement no one - not Sinatra, Elvis or the Beatles - has come close to matching.
    A brilliant entrepreneur, Crosby played an important role in the development of the postwar recording industry. As one of Hollywood's most popular actors, he won the Oscar for 1944's Going My Way and starred in the iconic "Road" films with Bob Hope. This program explores the legend of an iconic performer, revealing a personality far more complex than the public persona he so carefully cultivated. Crosby's estate granted American Masters unprecedented access to the entertainer's personal and professional archives, including never-before-seen home movies, Dictabelt recordings, photos and more.
    The film features new interviews with all surviving members of Bing Crosby's immediate family - wife Kathryn, daughter Mary and sons Harry and Nathaniel - as well as singers Tony Bennett and Michael Feinstein, record producer Ken Barnes, biographer Gary Giddins and writers Buz Kohan and Larry Grossman. "Bing's remarkable appeal, which continues to this day, was in his seemingly effortless ability to pull an audience in to his intimate, laid-back voice," says Emmy-winning director Robert Trachtenberg. "With the new material I've found, I think the breadth, depth and candor of his story will hopefully allow people to see him in a new light." "Much like his talent, Bing Crosby is a natural for the series. With more No. 1 recordings than anyone, it is easy to overlook all of his other achievements. Thankfully, this film delves deeply into all of his remarkable work, and will surprise many viewers with a unique perspective on his private life," says Michael Kantor, executive producer.

    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

    ImageMakers [#1303H] The Animation of Imagination THE LOST THING (Australia) - A boy discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle caps one day at the beach. Realizing it is lost, he tries to find out where it belongs, but everyone else is too busy or wrapped up in their own lives to care. The boy decides it is up to him to find its home. The surreal animation comes from the mind of children's book writer Shaun Tan. A beautiful allegory exploring how we take for granted the world around us and how we ourselves at times feel like we don't belong.
    FANTASTIC FLYING BOOKS OF MORRIS LESSMORE (US) - Inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina (the filmmakers are based in Louisiana), Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, "Morris Lessmore" is a story of people who devote their lives to books. The film is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of reading. The film uses a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals.
