Description
Episode Description
Beginning with a series of school pictures, Program 5, APPEARANCES, PORTRAITS & LIFESTYLES, explores the arts' capacity to reveal personal appearance, character and lifestyle. If we observe closely, the arts can tell us what a person is like as well as how he or she looks. The narrator, Donald O'Connor, leads viewers through a series of visual artworks which clearly express various moods, activities, and circumstances. The program treats viewers to engaging portraits of boys and girls, heroes and villains, the rich and poor, and a variety of others. Dance sometimes gives us particularly strong impressions of personality. In this segment, two very funny individuals dance the quarrel scene between the stepsisters from CINDERELLA. We learn much more about these two characters than simply how they look. In the music segment, students learn that musicians also can portray personal characteristics, feelings, and moods. A troupe of mimes interpret the types of persons they hear described in selected pieces of music."-- 1983 Peabody Awards entry form.
