Program Description

Now in its 26th season on PBS, this program brings gold medalists and Olympic hopefuls -- hailing from the United States, Russia, Ukraine and Japan -- together for a dazzling figure skating exhibition to benefit cancer research and treatment. Olympic Silver Medalist Paul Wylie returns as master of ceremonies, marking his 15th appearance on the program. This year's annual review boasts a stellar lineup of current and past champions, and includes two very special performances: Olympic Gold Medalist Oksana Baiul's "comeback" performance and the world debut performance of skating's newest ice-dancing couple -- Olympic Silver Medalist Maya Usova and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Evgeny Platov.
