This program visits Castle Hulshoff, her Westphalian birthplace; the Ruchhaus; and Meersburg Castle on Lake Constance, where she experienced her period of greatest productivity.

This captivating program focuses on the final period of Vincent van Gogh's life, from his relocation to Arles to his final move to Auvers-sur-Oise. By retracing his journey to southern France and back, in combination with readings from letters to his brother and interviews with van Gogh experts, this passionate artist's most fruitful period-tragically cut short-is illuminated, along with the landscapes that inspired him.

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The moment demand outpaces supply, water becomes a commodity to be traded in the global market. But who owns the rights to water? And how can a price be set on water? In this program, the pros and cons of privatization are assessed in a number of water management situations around the world: Aguas Argentina in Buenos Aires; the Bechtel corporation in Cochabamba, Bolivia; Thames Water company in Jakarta; and a public/private test partnership in Albania.

The massive logistics that enable Las Vegas to prosper in the middle of a desert are also explored
Testing the limits of possibility massive dams and waterworks( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it comes to water management, many politicians and technocrats have felt that colossal problems are only solved by colossal projects: dams. But blind faith in concrete can often have devastating effects on communities and the environment. This program examines the positive and negative impact, as well as the politics and economics of several ongoing or proposed projects: China's Three Gorges Dam, Egypt's Mubarak pumping station, pit-mine reclamation in Germany's Lausitz region, and Spain's controversial national hydrological plan for the Ebro river
Mastering fashion design studying with Vivienne Westwood( Visual )

New treatments are presented for Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis, as well as experimental drugs based on the recently identified Alzheimer's gene
Goethe in Weimar( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program pays lyrical homage to the enigmatic relationship between the poet/dramatist Goethe and the Baroness Charlotte von Stein and explores its influence on his work. Excerpts from a selection of the more than 2,000 letters exchanged by Goethe, Charlotte, and their friends bear testimony to the intensity and intimacy of the relationship-one which most experts believe was platonic, despite the often passionate tone of the letters. Dramatized vignettes, sketches, and actual footage provide a historical glimpse into the German courts of the period, and into the life of this revered German figure and the woman he considered "mother, sister, and one true love." A Deutsche Welle production. (28 minutes)

Three athletic footwear companies-Nike, adidas, and homegrown upstart Li Ning-have faced off in a high-stakes battle for China's gigantic market.

Here, women can gather, dance, and remove their burqas without fear of violence or alienation. In stark contrast, a women's prison is also visited. The courageous figures who inhabit these settings--including a resident therapist who conducts support groups for the frightened and the traumatized, and a cafeteria employee struggling to improve her family's living conditions--demonstrate how far Afghanistan must go to overcome its repressive and war-ravaged history
The Rhythm of life innovative heart research( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heart valves fabricated from the body's own cells are durable and are not rejected. By stimulating the natural growth of blood vessels to skirt the clogged ones, elaborate bypass surgery could become obsolete. This program shows some of the tools, either in use or under development, that place vascular science at the forefront of medicine. The program also highlights innovations in clot-dissolving drugs, artificial hearts, on-the-spot repairs through catheters and tiny video cameras and growing three-dimensional heart tissue in the laboratory
