    ABC (ended 1995)
    When twentieth-century scientists Dr. C. and Mike thawed a mammoth they found frozen into a glacier, they didn't expect him to wake up. But Phil proved articulate, intelligent, and full of stories about his life in prehistoric Woolyville. Each episode begins with him being inspired by some event in his modern life to relate a tale from the past, featuring the adventures of Cro (a cro magnon boy adopted by neanderthals) and his mammoth friends. Every story revolves around some concept in physics that Cro discovered through trial and error and which is being applied Phil's new friends to their modern problems. This was the first show that the Children's Television Workshop (the people who did Sesame Street) produced for a commercial network, ABC. After its initial run, it was reran on PBS, Noggin, and PBS Kids Sprout.moreless

    Wellspring Media
    Joseph Campbell: Mythos is a multi-part documentary television series consisting of lectures by Joseph Campbell, which originally ran on PBS for 4 seasons, totaling 20 episodes, and was produced by the Joseph Campbell foundation. The series investigates popular myths, delving into surprising facts about the human mythic impulse in terms of psychology, ethnology, and comparative mythology. In the last 6 years of his life, Campbell delivered these lectures to share his life’s findings about the subject of myths, a phenomenon that has been around for all of recorded human existence. Campbell discusses why myths exist, how they differ, but also resemble one another, across cultures, and what they did to shape mindsets and civilization. He discusses why certain myths took on different forms and played more heavily with certain themes at different times, as well as why myths are important at all. Joseph Campbell: Mythos varies along three major themes: the shaping of our mythic tradition, the shaping of eastern tradition, and the shaping of western tradition. For an informative lecture series about a fascinating topic, check out PBS’s Joseph Campbell: Mythos.moreless

    Jiminy Glick was born in 1948, in Akron, Ohio, the youngest of eleven children born to Omar and Isabella Glickman. Sickly as a child, Jiminy had to be privately tutored until the age of thirteen, when doctors discovered his "ailment" was merely the result of a swallowed Tonka truck that had lodged in his duodenum. After graduating from Gale Gordon High School, he enrolled at the prestigious DeVry Institute of Technology, but left after the first semester when he won the role of Onlooker #2 in a bus-and-truck theater production of "Forty Karats," starring Miss Lana Turner. By the time he was thirty, Glick had grown confident enough to move out of his parents' house and pursue a career in acting. Hollywood was beckoning and Jiminy answered the call. Sure enough, he landed a job as a bus boy at Chasen's, where he stayed for the next eight years. He worked only occasionally as an actor, most notably as Buddy Ebsen's kleptomaniac nephew in a "Barnaby Jones" two-parter. Despite a series of mixed reviews, Glick found acting jobs few and far between and was ultimately forced to take a position as personal assistant to the legendary Charles "Death Wish" Bronson. He remained in that lofty capacity for five turbulent years. Then, in 1991, while moonlighting as a bartender's assistant at Roddy McDowell's traditional "People's Choice Award" after-party, he befriended former "Laugh-In" producer George Schlatter. As luck would have it, Schlatter was looking for a host for his new syndicated celebrity interview show, "LalaWood." Glick got the nod and, after two short years, "LalaWood" rocketed into the top 100. "Thank God he's a man and he's so fat or I'd be worried about my job. He's that good!" - Barbara Walters Glick now lives in Tarzana, with his wife of twenty-three years, Dixie, and their four sons: Morgan, Mason, Matthew and Modine. When he's not hosting his current show, "Prime-time Glick," you'll most likely find Jiminy coaching his sons' little league team, rebuilding the engine of one of his classic cars or browsing for antiques. Martin Short plays Glick. Glick will try to interview celebrity guests, hoping to remember their names... Jiminy Glick is a spin-off of The Martin Short Show (1999)moreless

Sarah takes on residential and commercial projects, creating signature spaces with timeless appeal. Sarah was even named one of Canada's "style-makers" by Canadian House & Home magazine. Now we get to join the designer as she takes on a personal project, that she will actually be living in. Purchased by her husband as a bachelor shack before they got married, the tiny island cottage is located 17 miles offshore and lives completely off the grid. The rustic and relaxing place runs off a combination of solar, wind, and propane energy, but the style could use an update. Sarah is going to work to renovate the place, making it as beautiful as the stunning lake scenery that surrounds it, while also considering storage, versatility and more.

    There's nothing quite like walking out of the hospital with your first child, putting your newborn in the car for the first time, driving home, and walking through the door with your new family member. Now what? Bringing Home Baby is a new show that focuses on those first few incredible days at home. It's time to learn how to hold babies, feed them, burp them, diaper them, swaddle them, calm them down, trim their fingernails… and try to get some well-deserved rest. The first few days at home for rookie parents are a jumble of emotions. They experience everything from joy, excitement, love and happiness, to fear, uncertainty and insecurity. No matter how prepared you think you are, you still don't really know what you're in for, and you have no idea how tired you can possibly get! TLC's series "Bringing Home Baby" focuses on those first 36 hours at home with your new baby. Sure, a newborn does only a few things: eat, sleep, cry and go through diapers. But each of those activities presents its own set of challenges for new parents. Plus, there seems to be an endless list of skills to master for a newborn: you've got to learn how to hold them, feed them, burp them, diaper them, swaddle them, calm them down, trim their fingernails and get them to sleep. Meanwhile, a new mom has her own health to think about as well. Sometimes friends and family are there to lend a hand and help the newbie parents learn the ropes. But having friends and family involved can complicate even non-stressful situations. What happens when Dad changes his first diaper - with his mother-in-law hovering over his shoulder? What about that entire extended family that wants to show up and celebrate? What if the dogs can't adapt to the newest addition? That's right. It's part bundle of joy/part bundle of nerves when you're Bringing Home Baby!moreless

    PBS
    Ken Burns: America is a historical documentary TV series developed by PBS that follows the award winning and acclaimed historical documentaries of Ken Burns, an American director known for his intimate and no-hold approach in his films. In the America series, Burns has spent the past twenty years telling the stories of topics deeply ingrained in the history and culture of what makes America what it is today. From the deeply American classic of baseball with its die hard fans and memories and myths that cross all generations (Baseball) to the bloody war between brothers in the civil war (The Civil War) to the development and dominance of America’s first form of mass medium in the form of the radio (Empire of the Air), Ken Burns holds nothing back in sharing, enlightening, and expanding upon the knowledge of who, what, when, where, why, and how these pieces of the United States became the defining factors of the American people and, in some ways, the world. Baseball, the Civil War, radio, inventor Frank Lloyd Wright, the infamous development of Jazz, the unparalleled achievement of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and the Women’s Movement with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony are all just some of what Ken Burns considers American Stories.moreless
