What made America? What makes us? These two questions are at the heart of the new PBS series Faces of America with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Building on the success of his series African American Lives (called by the New York Times “the most exciting and stirring documentary on any subject to appear on television in a long time,”) and African American Lives 2, Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr. again turns to the latest tools of genealogy and genetics to explore the family histories of 12 renowned Americans, including Meryl Streep, Mike Nichols, Stephen Colbert, Queen Noor, Yo-Yo Ma and Eva Longoria Parker. The series premieres nationally Wednesdays, February 10 – March 3, 2010 from 8-9 p.m. ET on PBS.

George Clooney has rallied a few mates for a telethon today to raise money for earthquake-ravaged communities in Haiti. Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief is set to become the most widely distributed telethon in history, reaching 640 million viewers. Foxtel viewers can see the benefit from 11am today on MTV, VH! and CNN, with repeats throughout the day. The two-hour commercial-free telecast will feature performances from Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Sting, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder and Taylor Swift. Caboolture boy Keith Urban will perform a group act with Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow, while Coldplay, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Bono and The Edge will collaborate from London. There’ll be a star-studded team working off stage too, with Nicole Kidman, Brad Pitt, Robert Pattinson, Meryl Streep and former US president Bill Clinton giving testimonials and manning the phones. Funds raised will be split evenly between relief organisations in Haiti.
