  • They danced up a storm in Bulgaria (1976; ca. 24 min.) / telecast on Weekend, October 9, 1976; produced by Craig Leake. Documentary on the 8th International Ballet Festival in Varna, Bulgaria, held in summer 1976. The program focuses on five American entrants: Stacy Swanner, Ann Marie De Angelo, Lynn Charles, Sandra Fortune, and Anna Spellman. Also seen in brief performance excerpts are Pavlina Geleva and Vladimir Ghinkoulov, Antoinetta Georgieva and Andrés Williams, Valentina Hadjiyska, Libor Vaculík, Kumiko Maeda, Ahmed Shoukry, Sylvester Campbell (who appeared as Fortune's partner but did not compete), Marin Boieru, and Hana Vlacilova. American dance critic Walter Terry, who was one of the judges, offers some commentary; also appearing on camera are Alicia Alonso and Yuri Grigorovich. In an extended sequence, gold medallist Patrick Dupond is seen rehearsing with John Gilpin and Anton Dolin. Ann Marie De Angelo is seen rehearsing with Robert Joffrey and performing "Vortex" from Alvin Ailey's The river.
  • Natasha (ca. 14 min.) / telecast on CBS-TV's 60 minutes; produced by Igor Oganesoff; interviewer, Morley Safer. Profile of Russian ballerina Natalia Makarova, who appears in several performance excerpts from American Ballet Theatre's production of The sleeping beauty. Makarova appears as Princess Aurora, partnered by Ivan Nagy. In the ballet studio, she is seen refining her performance as Aurora through the coaching of Robert Helpmann, and rehearsing sections from Act II of Giselle. A glimpse of her private life shows her with her husband Edward Karkar. The visual quality of this segment is extremely poor.
