SUNDAY The Yin and the Yankee (PBS: 10-11 p.m.): The story of multimillionaire Forbes magazine publisher Malcolm Forbes's 1982 motorcycle/hot-air balloon journey through northern China. Despite all sorts of setbacks in weather and official reluctance to have him balloon over military installations, Forbes was determined to keep moving. The film allows viewers to see a bit of northern China, but it's more about the spirit of a charmingly aggressive entrepreneur who refuses to take ``no'' for an answer. MONDAY
