"Faces of America" on PBS

PBS has a new four-part program about genealogical history and the power of ancestry and origins in contributing to a person's life and success... and can I use the slightly dramatic word "destiny" here?

The Root says that "those who appear on the four-part program include chef Mario Batali, comedian Stephen Colbert, novelist Louise Erdrich, journalist Malcolm Gladwell, actress Eva Longoria, musician Yo-Yo Ma, director Mike Nichols, Her Majesty Queen Noor, television host/heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz, actress Meryl Streep, and figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi."

I tried to embed a clip, but I think there's copyright issues, so just go to this link if interested.
