The Star-Spangled Banner : the Flag that Inspired the National Anthem by Lonn Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Francis Scott Key saw the United States flag still flying over Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland - signifying that the city had withstood the overnight British bombardment - he immediately sat down and wrote the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner." Since that September morning in 1814, the flag and the national anthem have occupied a special place in the hearts of Americans. The flag that withstood the "bombs bursting in air" and inspired the anthem has been cared for by the Smithsonian and exhibited to the public for almost a century. Here is the dramatic story."--Back cover
Brewster McCloud by Robert Altman( Visual )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From his aerie high within the Houston Astrodome, with help from his offbeat friends, a boy is going to learn to fly with his homemade wings. Expect a miracle from young Brewster McCloud. Director Robert Altman (MASH, Nashville, Gosford Park) weaves an offbeat tale of young McCloud (Bud Cort--Harold and Maude) who lives in an abandoned bomb shelter inside the dome and studies the flight of his pet birds. He's helped in his quest by the seraphic Louise (Sally Kellerman), thwarted by Daphne Heap (Margaret Hamilton--The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz) and seduced by Suzanne (Shelley Duvall). But when murder victims start to appear--covered in telltale bird droppings--this story of a quirky young man with a dream to break free takes an ominous turn

The Pyongyang concert( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who would have thought it? An American orchestra performing in North Korea! Hundreds of millions watched this historic New York Philharmonic concert on television in February 2008 and for a few hours the cold war hostilities seemed to be forgotten. This memorable event is now available for home-viewing on DVD and, as the first classical concert ever, on Blu-Ray Disc - highly advanced technology, which offers state-of-the-art technical professional viewing standards in the comfort of your home. Music became diplomacy when conductor Lorin Maazel and the New York Philharmonic, the USA's most eminent orchestra, opened the concert in East Pyongyang's Grand Theatre with both the American and the North Korean national anthems. The entertaining programme included music by Wagner, Dvořák, Gershwin, Bizet and Bernstein and prompted the North Korean audience to standing ovations. This courageous musical project also united Korean and American musicians, who, together, produced a technically brilliant performance. The musicians barely spoke to one another, communicating in exchanged glances and body language, and when Lorin Maazel raised his baton at the end of the concert and the orchestra embarked on 'Arirang, ' a lilting folk song emblematic of the North and South Korean people, the audience was obviously touched. A previously unreleased documentary with 53 min of exclusive material shows members of the New York Philharmonic on their historic trip to North Korea's capital. Many concerns and doubts arose before departing to the most inaccessible country in the world - a country that consistently violates human rights laws and that has been categorised by George Bush as part of the "axis of evil". The concert recording and the documentary, however, present no political manifestos. Instead they show people who are brought a little closer by virtue of music. Music knows no borders and can touch hearts and unite people everywhere - this release provides impressive proof

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

He charts the events leading up to the war, and the far-reaching impact this obscure conflict has had on our national psyche. The Flag, the Poet, and the Song also uncovers the facts and fallacies surrounding the flag and the song, from the tremendous size of the flag to why we continue trying to sing our anthem to this day."--Jacket
