PBS Inner Game Broadcast Airs
PBS and the Inner Game team up to offer new DVD Series.
Watch the DVD Preview clip below to witness the art of “relaxed concentration” — a necessary skill for success in playing tennis and see Tim Gallwey help performer Nia Peeples improve her game. Then discover how to combat the inner demons standing in the way of the weekend golfer’s score and enjoyment with Tim and musician Dan Kuramoto.
A one hour PBS special on The Inner Game was filmed this May and is due to be broadcast nationwide on 350 + PBS stations starting August 19th, 2012. The special is composed of two half hour shows: Tennis, The Inner Game, and Golf, The Inner Game. In both episodes Tim Gallwey coaches a celebrity in the techniques of the Inner Game as applied to their sport. The results may surprise you! Keep a lookout for times of the broadcast in your local PBS TV Guide! To see what you’ll receive in exchange for your local PBS pledge.
These DVDs are available now during the national PBS pledge promotion this August.

Tim Gallwey’s groundbreaking 1974 book, [intlink id=”953″ type=”page”]The Inner Game of Tennis[/intlink], forever changed the realm of performance psychology. The book sold over a million copies and was the impetus for the whole mind game genre that is so popular now. It contains a revolutionary way to learn and think about the game.
A phenomenon when first published in 1974, the Inner Game was a real revelation. Instead of serving up technique, it concentrated on the fact that, as Gallwey wrote, “Every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game.” The former is played against opponents, and is filled with lots of contradictory advice; the latter is played not against, but within the mind of the player, and its principal obstacles are self-doubt and anxiety.
Set to air nationally starting in August 2012, the series continues with DVD releases of both the [intlink id=”953″ type=”page”]Inner Game of Tennis[/intlink] and [intlink id=”108″ type=”page”]The Inner Game of Golf[/intlink]. We encourage you to make sure your local PBS station will air the show.
