Enjoy Hispanic Heritage On TV

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - Relevant, factual and entertaining Hispanic and Latino  television content are now conveniently available anytime to digital cable  customers On Demand.

That’s because the nation’s top cable  companies, in cooperation with the League of United Latin American Citizens  (LULAC), are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a diverse menu of TV  shows and movies.

“Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity for the Latino community  to call attention to who we are and what we represent as a people. Our  partnership with the cable industry enables us to share positive images of  the Latino community through compelling stories that discuss our rich history  and celebrate the many contributions Latinos have made to this country,”   said LULAC National President Margaret Moran.

Hispanic Heritage Month TV highlights include:

A Storied Past—Follow  real-life stories through award-winning documentaries, such as an original  production commemorating the 90th anniversary of the death of  General Francisco “Pancho” Villa, which  analyzes the historic events that framed the assassination of one of the  Mexican Revolution’s most controversial leaders. Another tells the  story of two fans who try to find out if the rumored death of mysterious  1970s rocker Sixto Rodriguez was true and, if not,  what became of him.

Dramatic Interpretations—Enjoy  dramatized interpretations of significant historical figures such as the  painter Goya, who becomes involved in the Spanish Inquisition when his muse,  Ines, is arrested by the church for heresy. Learn about surrealist Mexican  artist Frida Kahlo, whose catastrophic accident and  tumultuous marriage fire her passion for art.

Latino Notables—Discover  the vibrant and burgeoning culture of Hispanic America through a series of  highly personal video portraits of Latinos who have richly contributed to the  fabric of contemporary society.

Hispanic Flavors—Complete  the cultural immersion with a close look at food. Chef Tino  Feliciano tours Puerto Rico to explore the  unique flavors and traditions of his homeland, including a local favorite—crispy,  whole-roasted pig.
