In a rebroadcast from Dec. 29, 2012, Charles talks with Caroline Frick, executive director of the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (www.texasarchive.org). Frick talks about the organization's efforts in discovering over 200 versions of Melton Barker's "The Kidnappers Foil" - a short, "Little Rascals"-inspired film that was shot over & over again in various locations, with the same storyline and script, but with different children in the starring roles. Versions of the film were reportedly shot in El Paso & Las Cruces. "The Kidnappers Foil" was recently added to the National Film Registry, and TAMI is looking for more versions of "The Kidnappers Foil" which remain undiscovered. www.meltonbarker.org.

A former Microsoft executive and his teenage son are among the dead after a small plane crashed into an East Haven, Conn., neighborhood a few blocks short of the airport.
Pilot Bill Henningsgaard and his teenage son, Maxwell, were in the 10-seater turbo-prop when it struck two small homes near Tweed New Haven Airport on Friday, killing as many as four people, according to The Associated Press.
The family learned it was Bill Henningsgaard's plane through the tail number, his brother, Blair Henningsgaard, said.
A group of 20 students sits in a big circle in the front parlor of a Victorian mansion at Davis & Elkins College. Everyone has a fiddle. And all eyes are on the teacher.
