It's been over 25 years since Larry Hagman, Victoria Principal, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, Charlene Tilton, Ken Kercheval and Steve Kanaly first took up residence at the famous Southfork Ranch just outside of Dallas. They will meet there again for this special reunion to tour the famous grounds, talk about the series' most infamous storylines, reminisce about their time together on the show and sit down to a Texas-style barbeque. Larry Hagman will also share his own home movies that were shot as the series was actually being filmed.

Are you raising a bully, a brat or a wallflower and don't even know it? He'll reveal what type of child you have and what to do about it. Taking on some of the biggest challenges and problems facing parents today, he'll literally change the life of one family´┐Żand just may change the way you look at your own.
