In his newest PBS special, taped on October 22, 2011, best-selling author and beloved teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer presents his Five Wishes Fulfilled Foundations: five steps to living from your "highest self," and thereby attracting your deepest desires. Using his trademark humor, combined with source material drawn from some of the most original American "new thought" philosophers of the 20th century, Dr. Dyer outlines a program for mastering the tools necessary for living a profoundly extraordinary life. Viewers will learn how to use Imagination, Living from the End, Assuming the Feeling of the Wish Fulfilled, Attention, and the Last 5 Minutes of Each Day to create new and astonishing thought patterns, while defeating unproductive and recurring habits. Also appearing with Dr. Dyer is guest Anita Moorjani, a "Near Death Experience" survivor; the program concludes with a very special performance by the San Diego Children's Choir.

They take us along on the dive of a lifetime, to a tiny outpost 300 miles off the coast of Central American - Shark Mountain.
This is the intimate and revealing story of Stephen Hawking's life. Told for the first time in Hawking's own words and with unique access to his home and public life, this is a personal journey through Hawking's world. The audience joins him at home, under the care of his nursing team; in San Jose as he "wows" a packed theatre audience; in Silicon Valley as he meets a team of technicians who hope to speed up his communication system; and as he throws a party for family and friends. HAWKING also carefully tells Hawking's life journey, from boyhood under-achiever to PhD genius, and from a healthy cox on the Oxford rowing team to diagnosis of motor neuron disease, given just two years to live yet surviving several close brushes with death. The film also highlights his greatest scientific discoveries and plots his rise to fame and superstardom.

This documentary chronicles the behind-the-scenes ups and downs of how this film came to be.
Produced at the peak of Beatlemania in 1967, "Magical Mystery Tour" is the least known of the various films starring The Beatles and was never theatrically released or nationally broadcast on U.S. television, only receiving sporadic TV syndication in the 1980s. Receiving mixed reviews but arguably ahead of its time, the mostly improvised and loosely plotted script provides a charming comic showcase for The Fab Four and their idiosyncratic sense of humor, recounting a series of episodic misadventures of John, Paul, George and Ringo on a bus tour with a cast of eccentric characters, including Auntie Jessie, tour director Jolly Jimmy Johnson, tour hostess Miss Wendy Winters and conductor Buster Bloodvessel. Newly restored, the often lavish production numbers feature such now Beatles standards as "Magical Mystery Tour," "The Fool on the Hill," "I Am the Walrus" and "Hello, Goodbye."
