Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid Lead Stellar Cast in BAFTA Award-Winning Drama

The critically acclaimed British drama LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX premieres Sunday, September 8, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. on VPT.

LAST TANGO is an uplifting comedy/drama about romance and second chances. Full of zesty humor, authentic characters and glorious dialogue, it's about timeless love in a very modern setting.

Childhood sweethearts Alan and Celia, both widowed and in their 70s, fall for each other a second time when they are reunited on the internet after nearly 60 years. As their lives collide, the couple laments what might have been as they begin a life-affirming journey together. While their relationship is a celebratory tale of the power of love at any age, it is also a story about family and the complications the relationship causes, especially for their grown daughters.

Full episodes of LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX will be available for viewing on the VPT.org for a limited time after each national broadcast.

The New Black is a documentary that uncovers the complicated and often combative histories of the African-American and LGBT civil-rights movements.  Specifically, the film examines homophobia in the black community's institutional pillar - the black church and reveals the Christian right wing's strategy of exploiting this phenomenon in order to pursue an anti-gay political agenda.

The Trials of Muhammad Ali covers the explosive crossroads of Ali's life. When Cassius Clay becomes Muhammad Ali, his conversion to Islam and refusal to serve in the Vietnam War leave him banned from boxing and facing a five-year prison sentence. Ali's choice of belief and conscience over fame and fortune resonates far beyond the boxing ring, striking issues of race, faith and identity that continue to confront us all today.
