One of my favorite shows is CBS Sunday Morning.  The segments are longer and classier.  I always learn something.  

For example, this is a segment on the renowned portrait painter John Singer Sargent.  I learned he was much more than a portrait artist. He was multi talented in oils and water colors. He preferred to paint his friends in a less rigid setting.  Unlike his portraits, which were perfect, he could paint them as they were. It occurred to me as I was writing this, his portraits are like professional photographs today. If you look as his portraits, he appeared to touch them up too.
