Dr. Northrup has always counseled that health isn't just for the young. Now, in response to thousands of requests from readers, radio show listeners, lecture attendees, and fans from all over the world, she has turned her attention to the subject of women and aging - and once again, proves to be a fearless thinker, pioneer and author whose work is always based on impeccable research. In her newest PBS special, Christiane Northrup, M.D. visionary pioneer and one of the world's leading authorities in the field of women's health and wellness, addresses the subject that hits the sweetest of sweet spots among the female 60+ PBS audience demographic: she takes on the topic of "aging" - and turns it on its head! She challenges the most popular but least helpful perspectives on women's "aging," replacing the notion of decline and decrepitude with the profound understanding that growing older means an increase in wisdom and value. Dr. Northrup skillfully collects and interprets research from astronaut studies, eldercare, the fields of sexuality, orthopedics and other areas, and combines them with her own clinical and life experience. The result is 7 Steps that every woman should take in her journey to getting older - without aging. The special was taped at Boston's Calderwood Pavilion, in front of an audience of wildly enthusiastic Northrup fans!Additional Broadcast Times: Sunday, June 7 at 3:30 pm EDT

Beginning with the pioneering and influential Boswell Sisters in the 1920s and 1930s, sister acts became popular attractions in American music with radio, film, stage and record performances that enchanted audiences with sweetly harmonic love songs and bouncy novelty numbers.

These sweethearts of song appealed to listeners of all ages at a time when families would gather to enjoy entertainment together.

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.

Colditz Castle, a notorious prisoner of war camp in Nazi Germany, was supposed to be escape-proof. But in the dark days at the end of World War II, a group of British officers dreamt up the ultimate escape plan: in a secret attic workshop, they constructed a two-man glider out of bed sheets and floorboards. Their plan was to fly to freedom from the roof of the castle, but the war ended before they could put it to the test. Now a crack team of aerospace engineers and carpenters rebuild the glider in the same attic using the same materials, and they'll do something the prisoners never got a chance to try: use a bathtub full of concrete to catapult the glider off the roof of the castle. As the hair-raising launch 90 feet up draws near, the program explores the Colditz legend and exposes the secrets of other ingenious and audacious escapes. Then, after a 70-year wait, the team finally finds out if the legendary glider plan would have succeeded.

What happened when we expanded out of Africa and into Asia -- where did we go and whom did they meet along the way? The latest evidence suggests we left far earlier than previously thought and interbred with a newly-discovered type of ancient human -- the Denisovans. The existence of these people was only established four years ago, when geneticists extracted DNA from a tiny fragment of finger bone. And because our ancestors mated with them, their genes found a home within our DNA. More than that, they've helped us survive and thrive.
