As to Classic Arts Showcase, there was a time when New Yorkers could get it from three channels -- often simultaneously. (Now we only get it on CUNY-TV ). But when we had three going, they were never the same. Good thing, because you could click back and forth looking for ballet. Bad thing, because sometimes you'd catch only the final moment -- or credit. All of which is a long-winded way of saying that what you saw last night very well may not have played in all parts last night. I think CAS comes in four-hour loops, with several on the satellite at any given time.

Agree on Benjamin.
I like this DVD a lot. And Carlos Acosta is Franz.

wow! consider yourself lucky and for those of you back east. Here in CA, they don't show it until 2:30 AM and lasts until 5:00 AM. Sometimes it'll start at 2:00 AM ! though, sunday nights start at 12:30 or sometimes 12:00 - AM !
it's good if you have TiVo or DVR, but then once you've fallen behind in watching the recordings, they'll unfortunately get deleted and bumped up. But then you realize you've found almost all of the clips offered form Glory of the Bolshoi w/out paying a dime!
Of course, there's always the option of staying up, which I'm a natural nighthawk, but forget it once school starts.
CAS is the only reason why I've seen so many pieces and am able to participate in these discussions!!
