OMG...What a weekend!

Artists at the Cross Roads of Culture and Technology - the theme of tonight's episode of CRAFT IN AMERICA...8pm

If you missed last night's AUSTIN CITY LIMITS, here's your 2nd chance to record this outstanding  show featuring performances from the Americana Music Festival in Nashville, including Bonnie Raitt, Richard Thompson, Alabama Shakes and better yet, "unknown" talent that will knock you out...AUSTIN CITY LIMITS encore tonight at midnight

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side," "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room") presents his take on the gap between rich and poor Americans in "Park Avenue: Money, Power & the American Dream." Gibney compares 740 Park in Manhattan, currently home to the highest concentration of billionaires in the country, to the South Bronx less than five miles away,  home to the poorest congressional district in the United States. Park Avenue runs through both areas. INDEPENDENT LENS presents PARK AVENUE: MONEY, POWER AND THE AMERICAN DREAM...Saturday at 11pm 

In the first episode of Ken Burns's THE DUST BOWL, feel the full force of the worst manmade environmental disaster in America's history as survivors recall the terror of the dust storms, the desperation of hungry families and how they managed to find hope even as the earth and heavens seemed to turn against them. Filmed extensively in this area over a number of years, this is truly our story as told by America's premiere film maker...THE DUST BOWL, PART 1...Sunday at 7pm
