The early 1960s were a time of joy, excitement and romance for teenagers and their parents as the music of the era spoke to them. Innocent school years were filled with songs of hope and heartbreak as pop music appealed to both the younger and older generations. In these years, parents and their children were connected by music on the radio and on TV, with songs that had mass appeal for both to enjoy. Pop crooner Bobby Vinton hosts his first "My Music" program, in this all-new archival clip special devoted to the golden pop years from 1960-1963.

Faith meets science in DEEPAK CHOPRA: THE FUTURE OF GOD - a ground-breaking and thought provoking 60-minute public television pledge special in which world renowned spiritual teacher and medical doctor Deepak Chopra demonstrates that the tools of our most advanced fields of science can be used to answer some of these fundamentally spiritual questions. Most importantly, Dr. Chopra will argue that Religion and Science, when understood at the highest levels, do not contradict each other and, in fact, actually complement each other! Dr. Chopra argues that even those of us brought up in a largely secular, materialistic world, without a devout connection to a religious tradition, can still have a more productive vital life, and a greater sense of well-being and happiness, if we gain a more intimate and powerful connection to the Divine Wisdom of the ages. By combining science, history and philosophy, as only Deepak Chopra can, he delivers a program that embodies and celebrates so much of what is central to the mission of public television: An ongoing, curious and engaging, quest into what it means to be human.
