In a lively discussion with Lord Kelvin, inventor Phileas Fogg states his belief that it's possible for someone to travel around the globe in a mere 80 days. Kelvin challenges him to prove it, and adds a wager: if Fogg can't circumnavigate the globe in 80 days, he'll have to give up inventing forever. Fogg and his crew of two take the challenge. They travel by train, boat, balloon, horseback, or any other means at their disposal. However, Fogg and his companions are accused of involvement in a bank robbery and have to clear their names as well
Harvest of shame( Visual )

18 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented by CBS News correspondent Dan Rather, Murrow's Harvest of Shame is among the most famous television documentaries of all time. Richly photographed and arrestingly poignant, this long-acclaimed 1960 exposé on the degradation and exploitation of migrant farmworkers in the United States, some of whom worked for as little as a dollar a day, resonated deeply for a nation unfamiliar with such brutally honest depictions of living conditions that, as Murrow remarks, "wrong the dignity of man." Spokesmen for various groups present their views both for and against the use of migratory workers under the conditions seen. Televised to millions of Americans the day after Thanksgiving to better tap into their emotions, this documentary led to permanent changes in the laws protecting workers' rights and set the tone for a generation of investigative journalists. Harvest of shame was the final documentary of Murrow's career

The Bismarck was the fabled German battleship of World War II. Traces the "life" of the Bismarck from its launching (courtesy of newsreel footage) through its many battles and narrow escapes, concluding with its far-from-inevitable sinking in the Spring of 1941.

The captain's tireless efforts are abetted by the love and support of a female naval officer
