Inside the Bizarre Marriage: Never-Before-Seen Home Video Footage Of Anna Nicole Smith and Her Now Deceased Millionaire Husband, Who Speaks On Camera About His Last Will and Testament Prior to Their Marriage, Airing 10-11 p.m.

And: At Home With Madonna, Plus College Campus Crimes, Airing 9-10 p.m.

When Texas oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall married Anna Nicole Smith, a topless dancer 63 years his junior, some thought she was taking him for a ride, while others thought it was true love. What was it really like inside this May/December relationship? For the first time on national television, �Primetime� airs exclusive videotape of their life together*, including never-before-seen footage of their wedding and a romantic vacation getaway on the Pacific Island of Bali. In some of the footage shot before their marriage, Marshall talks about what he wanted to leave Smith when he died � a topic that has been hotly debated as part of the ongoing and bitter battle between Marshall�s son, Pierce, and Smith. Next year the U.S. Supreme Court will rule on whether a federal court�s award to her of nearly 88 million dollars as the widow of a man she was married to for only 14 months will stand. Chris Cuomo�s report also includes an exclusive interview with Smith�s aunt Elaine Tabers, whose husband shot the video. Back to back �Primetimes� will air THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17 (9:00-10:00 & 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network: The Anna Nicole Smith report will air in �Primetime�s� regular time period of 10:00-11:00 p.m., while from 9:00-10:00 p.m., the following reports will air:

Madonna as you�ve never seen her before� the singing sensation gets personal when she agrees to videotape her everyday life for ABC News � starting with good morning kisses from her kids and her first cup of coffee and breakfast to private workout sessions and getting ready for a night on the town to promote her new album. Madonna also talks candidly to Cynthia McFadden about her recent fall from a horse and her road to recovery, recent headline making comments in her documentary, her religion and her new dance album.

Plus: From break-ins at dorm rooms to crimes near dark garages, from stealing to sexual assaults and other violent crimes, how safe are the millions of college students on their college campuses? And how easy would it be for an intruder to enter a dorm? To find out, �Primetime� sent a producer equipped with hidden cameras to colleges across the country to test the security on campuses. Will he be able to roam the dormitory halls freely? All told, �Primetime� visited 15 schools from large to small, public to private and even Ivy League. The ease of accessing dorms � even those with security in place � might be surprising. Jim Avila reports.

Universities are required to report all crimes on their campuses to the Department of Education. So which colleges have the highest reported violent crime rate? ABC News, along with the Investigators and Editors group, analyzed the Department of Education�s data for 2002 and 2003. The report also looks at recent cases of campus crime, and Avila talks to experts and students alike about crime and security -- or lack thereof -- on campus.

(*Portions of the Smith/Marshall video will also be seen on Thursday�s edition of �Good Morning America�)

DIANE SAWYER, CHRIS CUOMO, CYNTHIA McFADDEN and JOHN QUI�ONES are the anchors of �Primetime.� DAVID SLOAN is the executive producer.
