           Thursday, December 1 at 9 p.m. on Vegas PBS Worldview
           At the tender age of eight, Marcel is abandoned by his mother. He is raised by his
           grandfather, Pascual, who introduces him to a world of fantasy and gives him the love
           and care that his mother couldn’t. When Marcel turns twenty-one, he believes the
           time has come to live on his own. He’s got plans with his girlfriend and feels ready to
           leave his home. At the same time, Pascual has become very old, and starts showing the
           symptoms of a disease that will dramatically affect Marcel’s plans. He must chose to
           leave or stay to take care of the only relative that ever loved him and cared for him.
           The choice is far from simple, between his grandfather and his love, in this critically
           acclaimed, tender, coming-of-age story from the crossroads of desire, devotion and
           love. Directed by Freddy Mas Franqueza. In Spanish with English subtitles.

     Masterpiece Classic:
     Return to Cranford
     Sunday, December 18 from 5- 8 p.m.
     on Vegas PBS Channel 10 and 10.1
     Change is racing towards the small, close-knit village of Cranford like
     a steam train – quite literally. As the railroad continues to encroach
     on the town, Cranford strives to open to new realities, from surpris-
     ing romances to unexpected losses and even waltzing! Matty Jenkyns
     (Judi Dench), Miss Pole (Imelda Staunton), Mrs. Forrester (Julia
     McKenzie) and Mrs. Jamieson (Barbara Flynn) are back with other
     distinguished residents of Cranford. Based on the stories of
     Victorian-era writer Elizabeth Gaskell, the series also features
     Tom Hiddleston (“Wallander”) and Tim Curry.

Channel 10 and 10.1
In the wake of the turbulent 1960’s, a new
style of song and songwriter came to the
fore – a style marked by vulnerable intro-
spection and raw, naked emotion. Backed
by little more than a lone acoustic guitar or
simple piano, these exciting voices
descended upon Los Angeles, the emerging
epicenter of the American music scene,
and the Troubadour, the famed West
Hollywood club that nurtured this commu-
nity of gifted young artists – and blossom-
ing critical, commercial sensations. This
special is a first-hand account of the gene-
sis of the singer-songwriter movement,
centering on the historic collaboration
between Carole King and James Taylor, as
well as Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Kris
Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, the Eagles,
Elton John and many others.
