If you've got cable TV at home (I don't know - is Phoenix on a satellite channel as well?), you can get a wealth of information on the U.S. via the German programme Phoenix in the next couple of days.
Between 29 Sept. and 03 Oct. it's their "Themenwoche USA":
Ein Einblick in die Vergangenheit und Gegenwart der "Supermacht" USA
If you scroll to the bottom of that page, you'll see links leading you to the various topics, where you'll find the exact date and time when they're broadcast.
It starts with "California Dreamin" ... on Saturday (or should we say: Friday night), between 0.30 am and 3.30 am (four installments in a row). Maybe you can program your video machine (or DVD recorder).
There are some normal times as well, e.g. Saturday at 20.15 ("Die Kennedys").
And so on ... see for yourselves, if you're interested.
