Saluting the Golden Age of American Popular Song
From the 1920s to the ‘40s, popular songs thrived and music was born on Broadway, in Hollywood, Harlem and Tin Pan Alley. Explore the Roots of the music and hear the popular songs that have become such an integral part of our country’s musical memory.

Mysteries in History: 5 Fascinating Cases of the Unexplained
Was “The Man in the Iron Mask” a threat to King Louis the 14th? Who was “Kaspar Hauser?” Was there a “curse of the Mummy” in King Tut’s tomb? Did the War of the Worlds cause mass hysteria? And did Dr. Sam Sheppard really kill his wife? Intriguing!

The Great War on Page and Screen
WWI captured in novels by Hemingway and Pat Barker; in non-fiction by Paul Fussell and Barbara Tuchman; in poetry by Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon; and in films by Peter Weir and Jean Renoir showing us the horror and heroism of the war to end all wars.
