Final Rehearsal before the Big Day

Final Rehearsal in Sheraton Ballroom, NYC

This is it! The last "official" rehearsal inside the Sheraton Ballroom before the big day.  Yes, I said inside because outside it's been raining, cold and I could swear I saw a snow flurry or two.  That could be me though, a typical Floridian looking for the excitement that snow brings.  Momentarily of course!

There will be one more rehearsal  at 3 am the day of the parade for the NBC crew.  The students have a whopping 10 minute time slot to perform their "American Reunion" themed piece for the cameras.

Get Wild about Nature on WLRN-TV. Love Cats? Tune in to see the ultimate cunning cat!

Nature - Revealing the Leopard (8 pm)

Leopards are the ultimate cats. They are the most feline, the most intelligent, the most dangerous and, until recently, one of the least understood. They hunt from South Africa to Siberia, from Arabia to Sri Lanka, and are the most widespread predator of their size on land. A leopard is a cat that walks by itself, unseen and secretive. Leopards are the beautiful killers that live in the shadows. This film will accumulate the evidence and put together a psychological profile of this extraordinarily cunning cat.

The animals of the world may increasingly need our help with big issues like preserving habitat or species conservation. But sometimes individual animals need our help as well.

Luckily for them, sometimes miracles do happen. Amazing prosthetics made possible by the latest engineering and technology are able to provide just what they need, and scientists are finding that innovations created in the process are benefiting both animals and humans.

A Royal Must See on WLRN-TV ... Queen Victoria's Empire

Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria's Empire (8:00 pm)

The Moral Crusade / The Scramble for Africa

At the time of Queen Victoria's birth in 1819, England was an agrarian society. Within a few short decades, this small island nation would be transformed into an industrial superpower, with an empire spanning the globe. QUEEN VICTORIA'S EMPIRE is both the story of this remarkable time, and an engaging portrait of a queen who ruled over a fifth of the world's population.

By 1861 Britain is the world's most powerful nation but the death of Prince Albert weakens Victoria and many of his political ideas fade from importance. Then, the Suez Canal is threatened by a holy war in the Sudan, and General Charles Gordon becomes an "imperial martyr," after he's killed by the rebels.
