ON THE COVER a Premieres dollEy madison On Monday, March 1, a will premiere one of our new productions, Dolley Madison, a 90-minute portrait of the woman who transformed the previously undefined role of the President’s wife and became America’s “first” First Lady. The show will air as part of the American Experience series.

Actress Eve Best as Dolley Madison

These days, Dolley Madison might not be a household name, but in her time, she was renowned. She lived through two wars, knew the first twelve Presidents, and watched America evolve from a struggling young republic to the first modern democracy in the world. At a time when women could neither vote nor participate officially in politics, Dolley, wife of the fourth president James Madison, became one of the most influential and best loved figures of her day. When she died in 1849 at the age of 81 – as one of the last remaining members of the founding generation – Washington City honored her with the largest state funeral the capital had ever seen.

The show follows in a ’s tradition of exploring the American Revolution with shows like Liberty! and Alexander Hamilton. In choosing Dolley Madison as the subject of the next show in this vein, a Executive Producer Catherine Allan notes that in previous programs, the people at the center of the story were men. She and Middlemarch Films Producer and Director Muffie Meyer wanted to focus on the women’s stories. Allan says, “Dolley Madison appealed to us because she was a powerful and influential public figure at a time when women were excluded from politics. She achieved this by taking the traditional feminine roles of her day – including wife and hostess – and playing them to the hilt. Not only did she become the country’s first great political hostess – bringing people of both political parties together at the White House during one of the most bitterly divided periods in Washington politics – she promoted the feminine values of civility, cooperation and empathy.” Dolley Madison looks at both Dolley’s public achievements and at her private life and explores how under her influence, the ill defined role of the President’s wife became a public position for the first time. “Dolley very consciously cooked up a formula” says First Lady biographer Carl Sferrazza Anthony, “one that straddled the line between queen and commoner and which ultimately became the formula for a genuinely successful First Lady in her time and ours.” 2 Monday, March 1, 8pm; Sunday, March 7, 7pm

S

ean Bean returns as British soldier-hero Richard Sharpe who has risen through the ranks of the army on

the back of his brave exploits. Set during the Napoleonic Wars, this film is based on the popular novels of Bernard Cornwall. A year after the battle of Waterloo, dispatches from India warn that a local Maharaja is threatening British interests. Sharpe is sent to what turns out to be his most dangerous mission yet.

Dance in America: NY Export: Opus Jazz

Cracking the Maya Code

A "ballet in sneakers" choreographed by the legendary Jerome Robbins in 1958, NY Export: Opus Jazz was a breakout success in its day. This film production takes the overlooked Robbins' masterpiece off of the stage and places it back into the landscapes that inspired it, filmed on locations all over the five boroughs of New York.

This is a definitive look back at how a handful of pioneers deciphered the intricate system of hieroglyphs developed by the Maya.

Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India,

generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth. He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that others could find, too. This documentary by award-winning filmmaker David Grubin tells the story of his life, a journey especially relevant in our own times. Richard Gere narrates.

Here lies the story of two of our century's most celebrated pioneers – Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Recount the trials, tribulations and triumphs of these two women as they strive to give birth to the women's movement. Not until their deaths was their shared vision of women's suffrage realized.

This is the first film biography of American icon Louisa May Alcott. Her life was no children’s book: she worked as a servant, a seamstress, and a Civil War nurse before becoming a millionaire celebrity writing “moral pap for the young,” as she called it. Under pen names and anonymously, she also wrote stories with enough drugs, sex and crime to prove the author was no “little” woman. When she died, Alcott took her secret identity as a pulp fiction writer with her, and kept it for nearly a half-century. Starring Elizabeth Marvel and featuring Jane Alexander, Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women tells the story of this remarkable woman’s quest to rescue her family from poverty and to find wealth, fame and happiness for herself.

Coming in April,

presents:

Each year, hundreds of people find hope through a handful of organizations across the

country that train service dogs for people with disabilities. Through a Dog's Eyes follows the journey of recipients as they go through the heartwarming and sometimes difficult process of receiving and becoming acclimated to a service dog. Jennifer Arnold, founder of one of the nation’s largest service dog organizations, Canine Assistants, details her unique teaching methods, giving viewers an intimate look at the canine-recipient matching process. The program offers inspiring, hopeful stories that show how dogs can affect everyone’s life and how, with a little patience and a lot of love, an “ordinary” dog can show how extraordinary he or she is.
