2:30 p.m. | Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine with Lissa Rankin, M.D.

Lissa Rankin knew she was going to be a doctor at the age of seven. The daughter of a respected physician, educated at Duke University, University of South Florida, and Northwestern University, she followed a successful career trajectory as an OB-GYN. But Dr. Rankin's focus shifted away from traditionally practiced Western medicine through a combination of personal and professional experiences with illness and ailing patients whose symptoms - and eventual successful treatments - defied conventional attitudes towards medicine.

Dr. Rankin now presents her groundbreaking synthesis of this research in her first public television program, Mind Over Medicine: The Science of Healing Yourself. Dr. Rankin demonstrates how the brain is the most important organ for our optimal health, and she explains how thoughts, feelings and beliefs have been proven to alter the body's physiology. She explains the body's innate ability to self-repair and how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind. During the program, she provides viewers with techniques to activate the relaxation response and to reduce the stress response - both critical to putting the body into the state in which self-healing can take place. She also teaches viewers how to use a new model of whole health as a guide to living an optimally healthy life.


4 p.m. | Gospel's Jubilee Showcase

"Imagine finding out that someone, miraculously, had videotaped performances by Beethoven, Brahms, and Schubert, with the tapes now available for anyone who wished to see them. Or learning that someone had aimed a camera and microphone at Scott Joplin and Jelly Roll Morton, the tapes sure to offer insights on early ragtime and jazz. In a way, that's what just happened in gospel music. For more than two decades, the long - defunct Jubilee Showcase TV program featured and therefore preserved on tape virtually everyone who mattered in gospel." -- Howard Reich , The Chicago Tribune , January 26, 1992.


5 p.m. | An Evening with Doc Watson and David Holt

AN EVENING WITH DOC WATSON & DAVID HOLT spotlights the signature sound and indomitable spirit of five-time Grammy winner and National Medal of Arts honoree Arthel Lane "Doc" Watson (1923-2012). Blind since childhood, Doc developed an innovative flat-picking style of playing guitar and, with his son Merle, helped lead the folk roots revival of the 1960s. David Holt, a fellow Grammy-winner, folklorist and longtime friend of Doc, hosts this celebration of song and story. In this three-act concert, recorded in 1998 at North Carolina's Appalachian State University, Doc, David and Richard Watson (Doc's grandson) perform a variety of duets and solos. Musical highlights include: "Tom Dula," one of the most famous folk songs ever to top the pop charts; the beautiful mountain ballad "Shady Grove"; Carter Family classic "Dixie Darling"; and "Talk About Sufferin'," a haunting a capella gospel tune. Between virtuoso picking and foot-stomping jams on bluegrass, folk and gospel favorites, Doc recounts entertaining anecdotes from his life as well as enduring Appalachian legends.


6:30 p.m. | Emeli Sande: Live at the Royal Albert Hall

The Scottish singer and songwriter Emeli Sande is breaking sales records in her native UK, with 3 million albums already sold worldwide, and is now taking the US by storm with piles of critical acclaim. Now she has a new concert special that was filmed at the legendary Royal Albert Hall and includes performances of all of her hit singles so far including "Daddy," "My Kind Of Love," "Heaven," "Beneath Your Beautiful" and the international smash "Next To Me."

Filmed at the culmination of her fall 2012 tour, the live concert spectacular, directed by Paul Dugdale (whose previous work includes Coldplay Live 2012), is an amazing multi-camera spectacular showing off both the stunning venue and the electrifying performances including special guest Labrinth ("Beneath Your Beautiful") on his UK No. 1 duets with Ms. Sande. Emeli Sande is one of the UK's top selling artists and became world famous after her stunning performances at the 2012 London Olympics opening and closing ceremonies. As evidenced on her debut album Our Version of Events, she holds a deep affinity for all the heart stuff and soul stuff as well.

A fervent songwriter since the age of 10, the 24-year-old Sande gracefully flaunts her rich voice and penchant for sophisticated melody on Our Version of Events. The album reveals her to be an uncompromising creative force in the vein of Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, and Lauryn Hill (each of whom Sande names as a key influence on her unforgettable sound). It's clearly having an impression as the early awards, accolades from the press, and admiration from other artists have already begun to pile up.


7:30 p.m. | BrainChange with David Perlmutter, M.D.

BrainChange reveals the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbohydrates on the human brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more. His New York Times #1 best-selling book, Grain Brain, is the first book of its kind to explore the insidious role our highly touted low-fat, high-carb diets play in a host of neurological conditions. The vast majority of us don't realize that our seemingly "healthy" daily habits are silently aggravating our nervous systems and setting us up for serious brain ailments. BrainChange shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It's in the food you eat. Dr. Perlmutter, a leading international authority on nutritional medicine, has a disturbing yet empowering message: our brains are highly sensitive to certain proteins and sugars that are ubiquitous today-in our hand creams and organic ice creams, cocktails and coffees, multi-grain breads, whole fruits, and even brand name pharmaceuticals. In BrainChange, he shows us how to prevent, treat, and reverse a wide array of brain-related disorders by eliminating specific foods from our diets and making smarter lifestyle choices. Dr. Perlmutter is the only doctor in the country who is both a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, making him uniquely suited to write this book and make this public television program. An in-demand expert for nationally syndicated radio and television programs, he has appeared on 20/20, CNN, Dr. Oz, Fox News, Good Morning America, The Today Show, and Oprah, among many outlets. Dr. Perlmutter also runs his own private practice, The Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, Florida.


9 p.m. | Ed Slott's Retirement Rescue for 2014!

Congress has spoken and Ed Slott is here to help you understand what it means to you, your family and your retirement savings. Ed Slott's RETIREMENT RESCUE for 2014! is a fully-updated version of his hit program RETIREMENT RESCUE. The program is a powerful call-to-action for American consumers concerned about their retirement. Ed Slott defines the monumental fiscal problems facing Americans and provides a step-by-step solution to creating a plan of action. Ed Slott's RETIREMENT RESCUE for 2014! builds on the phenomenal success of his earlier public television programs with all new information but continues with the "Slott formula" of using humor, personal stories and detailed facts from the tax code to make his points.
