Photographer and filmmaker Nigel Barker — best known for sitting on Tyra Banks' judging panel on America's Next Top Model — also donates his time to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Most recently, Barker directed Generation Free, a 45-minute documentary that chronicles the Foundation's efforts to create a generation of children free of the HIV virus in Tanzania. In commemoration of World AIDS Day, Generation Free will air on the TV Guide Network on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 7/6c (the film repeats at 10/9c, or you can watch it in its entirety here).
TVGuide.com spoke to Barker about why his film focuses on Tanzania, what is being done to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the virus and how working in Africa has inspired his activism.

The Amazing Race 15 - Harlem Globetrotters - Herbert Flight Time, Nathaniel Big Easy
Being unable to unscramble five letters to spell "Franz" (as in Kafka) turned out to be quite the trial for The Amazing Race's Big Easy. The 28-year-old Harlem Globetrotter (real name: Nathaniel Lofton) struggled with the letters for almost three hours and was dealt a blow when Dan, after agreeing to work together, refused to give him the answer, offering up only the first letter. "That was his strategy. He felt like we were one of the strongest teams and he saw an opportunity to get rid of us and he went for it," Big Easy tells TVGuide.com. Rather than toil any longer, he and teammate, Herbert "Flight Time" Lang, 32, opted to incur a four-hour penalty, which ultimately led to their metamorphosis — uh, elimination. See why the pair had no regrets about the decision, what they think of Sam and Dan, and more.
