T'ai Chi, Health and Happiness with David-Dorian Ross

T'ai Chi - Health & Happiness is a show that introduces viewers to the practical benefits of the Chinese martial art of T'ai Chi. Respected T'ai Chi expert David-Dorian Ross combines a series of demonstrations that take the viewer through the basics of T'ai Chi with an engaging and detailed description of the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of this ancient form of exercise and "moving meditation." The show is hosted by the American T'ai Chi champion and advocate David-Dorian Ross - World silver and dual bronze medalist, and 8-time US national champion. He has been called, "a gifted guru," and "the man who brought T'ai Chi mainstream" in the U.S. His television shows, books, seminars and instructional DVD's (including the #1 selling DVD T'ai Chi Beginners' Practice) have already introduced thousands to his down-to-earth, informative and highly personal style of teaching T'ai Chi. Ross is famous for taking this ancient Asian style of Kung-Fu and translating it for modern Western audiences in a way that makes it accessible, fun - and often funny. As David-Dorian explains to the studio and home audience, T'ai Chi is a practice that can transform their lives. It engages the physical body, develops mental focus, and honors ancient wisdom. Its beautiful dance "forms" are practiced by more than a billion people throughout Asia and around the world. T'ai Chi Ch'uan is called "the ultimate exercise" for body, mind and spirit. The health benefits of T'ai Chi are surprising in number and scope, and David-Dorian reviews these in the program. And, as he points out there is an additional and often overlooked benefit to this practice. T'ai Chi is a living philosophy - a practical blueprint for living a life that brings happiness, fulfillment - and that elusive spiritual goal, inner peace. The fundamental lesson behind all of T'ai Chi's benefits can be summed up in one word: balance. In fact, the philosophy of T'ai Chi contends that all of its amazing health benefits come from bringing the person's body, mind and spirit back into balance. The same goes for every other aspect of life - relationships, family, career, self-esteem and creativity. When life is in balance, everything works better. When you begin to lose your balance, the things we want and need in life begin to break down and slip away. As David-Dorian says in the program: "When your life is in balance, everything works. And when your life is out of balance, everything begins to break down. It's just that simple. And that's the essence of tai chi, it's about bringing balance into your life."

JJ Virgin's Sugar Impact Secret

Not all sugar is created equal. Most people know that sugar is bad for them, but few people know that the impact of sugar can actually be the real cause of inflammation, bloating, metabolic disorders, fatigue, and weight gain. The Sugar Impact Secret will revolutionize how viewers think about (and eat) sugar. JJ Virgin shows viewers how to lower their sugar impact which helps retrain taste buds, restore sugar sensitivity, heal the digestive tract, and rev up the metabolism, turning sugar burners into fat burners and promoting rapid weight loss. Dropping sugar also helps to reverse premature aging, while heading off most chronic and inflammatory illnesses where they start. When digestion works right, skin glows, sleep patterns improve, and energy increases. When many of JJ's clients come to her, they're frustrated and ready to give up because they feel like they are doing everything right, trying so hard, and it just isn't working. They're already depriving themselves of so much - they don't eat dessert, they've dumped the white flour, they stopped adding that spoonful of sugar to their coffee. But after all that "healthy" low-calorie, low-fat eating, they end up with the same symptoms they'd get if they were eating a ton of sugar - weight gain, cravings, mood and energy swings, health issues like inflammation, high blood pressure and insulin resistance, and maybe even diabetes. Sound familiar? So what the heck is going on? The problem is their healthy diets are packed with hidden sugars, and these sugars are not harmless. But the good news is when you ditch the hidden sugar, you'll reverse stubborn symptoms, drop weight and feel better fast.

Lawrence Welk's TV Treasures

Because the Lawrence Welk Show was on national television from 1955 to 1982, over one thousand shows were produced -- 1,065 to be exact - and that's not counting re-runs! An amazing achievement! LAWRENCE WELK'S TV TREASURES, the 80-minute program now in production for broadcast in March, 2007, is the 14th brand new Welk special produced for public television, a number unmatched by any other artist to be featured on PBS fundraising programs. This grand total of 1,079 new shows is an all-time record for any musical variety series! With over one thousand programs to choose from, the producers of the program are, indeed, on a treasure hunt, looking for the most entertaining and rarely seen musical numbers from the Welk television show archive. Viewers can expect to see performances by their favorite members of the Musical Family, starting with the earliest days on the show. Segments from the first black and white program on July 2, 1955 to the last show on February 24, 1982 will be included, and many of them will mark major milestones along the way such as the 500th show, the 20th year, and the 25th anniversary program. One of the "priceless" moments featured in LAWRENCE WELK'S TV TREASURES is from the pen of nationally syndicated cartoonist, Joe Martin. In November, 2006, his character, "Mr. Boffo," had something very funny to say about the Welk Show and the producer couldn't resist asking for permission to use it. Mr. Martin created a special animated version of the cartoon and it will be seen for the first time on the public television program.

Rock My Soul

Born of fevered rural tent revivals and urban clapboard churches, Gospel music was made for the concert stage. Showmanship and virtuosity would transform this music of hope into one of America's most popular and influential musical genres as Gospel came of age to inform the creators Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, R&B and Soul revolutions. A dynamic celebration of the Gospel tradition, this performance features all-star artists alongside Gospel legends and National Heritage Fellowship honorees, The Fairfield Four. The group was featured in the Oscar-winning film, O Brother Where Art Thou, vastly expanding their audience base and reputation. Rock My Soul is particularly blessed in featuring The McCrary Sisters, four daughters of former Fairfield Four bandleader, the Rev. Sam McCrary. Performing with one of the best backing bands Nashville has to offer, guest artists include Amos Lee, Buddy Miller, Lee Ann Womack, Van Hunt and Lucinda Williams. Paying Gospel's musical birthright forward, concise glimpses into the Gospel story introduce the songs and singers and explore the ties that bind this music to the heart of the American songbook. Interviewees include Robert Plant, Taj Majal, Patty Griffin, Jackson Browne, Van Hunt, Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miller, Dom Flemson, author historian Peter Guralnick, NPR's Ann Powers, and experts from Fisk University and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Erected in 1816, the program's unique venue is Nashville's Downtown Presbyterian Church, an inspiring edifice and one of the nation's best-preserved examples of Egyptian Revival architecture. A contemporary history, Rock My Soul is the music of people, of community, of vitally talented individuals who come together with little but their incredibly gifted voices to create something deeply moving and powerful-something exceeding the sum of its parts. Here is music with a prominent role in the development of American culture-music sprung from adversity, celebrated through diversity.
