UNDERRATED 'Circus' on PBS: A crippling fear of clowns generally keeps us about 50 feet away from such things, but this rich, six-hour documentary series on the the Big Apple Circus made us grateful to face our fears. Whether following the disintegrating partnership between two twin brother jugglers, the perils of the gypsy-like circus life or, yes, the many hardships facing big-hearted clown Glen Heroy, this program shows the flesh 'n' blood under the big top.
