Waters of discord( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost half the world gets its drinking water from rivers that cross national boundaries. Analysts predict that more wars will be fought over water than oil. This program surveys a number of active or potential hot spots: Israel and the river Jordan; the Southeastern Anatolia Project in Turkey and its effects on Syria and Iraq; Egypt's Toshka Canal and the Nile Basin Initiative; and the Tehri dam in India. The program also looks at the effects of the Hoover dam on the Colorado River delta in Mexico and the success of Lesotho's Katse dam. Vandana Shiva, author of Water Wars, discusses many of these situations
Watery visions : is the future potable?( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a dramatic reversal of policy since apartheid, South Africa has become a model of water fulfillment. Despite being one of the driest regions on Earth, India's Rajasthan is an oasis due to the revival of a system of ancient rain basins. This program looks at these encouraging examples to show how sustainable solutions to long-term water management can be achieved, while a visit to Sertao in Brazil illustrates the appalling alternative-two very different futures
Mastering fashion design : studying with Vivienne Westwood( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called Britain's most consistently original, outrageous, eccentric, and controversial designer, Vivienne Westwood is also an esteemed professor of fashion at Berlin's Academy of Arts. This program profiles Westwood while capturing the student experience under her rigorous tutelage. Footage of her apprentices-in the classroom, learning the ropes at her London workshop, and putting on a fashion show where intricate historical costumes take pride of place-provides penetrating insights into what it takes to become a top-ranking fashion designer. A Deutsche Welle Production
The Trend : where fashion begins( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Paris to London, Monte Carlo to Milan, and Munich to LA, taste-makers Li Edelkoort, Gucci's Tom Ford, and Werner Baldessarini, of Hugo Boss, seek to identify the spirit of the age wherever they can find it-and then translate it into the next big trend in fashions. In this program, Edelkoort, Ford, Baldessarini, and others unravel the intricacies of clothing-oriented trend-spotting. In addition, parallel examples of trend-spotting are drawn from BMW subsidiary Designworks/USA, since the automotive industry is as driven by taste as the clothing industry is.

Inside the head : new dimensions in brain research( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps the most intriguing field of medicine is the one that seeks to understand consciousness itself. This program provides a tour of the most advanced work in brain research and cognitive science, as well as the latest applications of these discoveries in treating patients with brain disorders. Using MRI and EEG to determine areas of brain activity, researchers explore the connection between memory and epilepsy. New treatments are presented for Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis, as well as experimental drugs based on the recently identified Alzheimer's gene
The Craftsmanship of fashion : Italian touch( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Italy, the finest cloth in Europe is woven and hand-assembled to the exacting specifications of prestigious fashion houses-and it comes at a very steep price. This program visits an exclusive fabric fair, the wool looms of Zegna, the silk printing presses of T.J.S.S., a clothing assembly plant, and a fashion trade show to demonstrate how Italy's best craftspeople turn thread into cloth and cloth into some of the most luxurious clothing in the world. ESCADA's Brian Rennie, Paolo Zegna, and Werner Baldessarini, of Hugo Boss, are featured. A Deutsche Welle Production. (26 minutes)
The Cult of the beautiful body( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extreme body consciousness has taken youthful narcissism to new heights, making "boy meets girl" a ruthless physical selection process. This program examines the cult of the body in Western society and how it has reduced today's courtship ritual to a one-dimensional experience based primarily on physical attraction. Beginning with the pressure that men currently feel to conform to an abstract physical ideal, the role of the media is scrutinized, along with the culture that from Munich to Los Angeles excludes all who do not espouse the ideals of bodily perfection at the expense of all else. A Deutsche Welle Production
Sports shoe wars : battle of the giants in China( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three athletic footwear companies-Nike, adidas, and homegrown upstart Li Ning-have faced off in a high-stakes battle for China's gigantic market. This program examines adidas' rising prominence in the country, an ascension due in no small part to its well-publicized Olympic Games sponsorship. Li Ning's efforts to retain its precarious hold on the urban market are also studied. Li Ning CFO Tan Wee Seng and adidas Group CEO Herbert Hainer take turns outlining their marketing strategies and goals, while Chinese retailers and customers describe how the war is shaping up on the street. The result is a valuable case study for courses focusing on global marketing and international business
Goethe in Weimar( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 242 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"
Stories of women in Kabul( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The producers of this program were granted unlimited access to Kabul's Baghe Zanana, or Garden of Women-perhaps the only public place in Afghanistan where men are not welcome. 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. A Deutsche Welle Production
Annette von Droste-Hulshoff( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although her most important writings came late in life, Annette von Droste-Hulshoff's poetry and prose-often compared to Goethe's-have assured her a place among Germany's great 19th-century writers. This program visits Castle Hulshoff, her Westphalian birthplace; the Ruchhaus; and Meersburg Castle on Lake Constance, where she experienced her period of greatest productivity. Aspects of her life, such as her need for solitude amid nature, and the qualities of isolation, melancholy, reverie, and longing inherent in her writing are discussed. A Deutsche Welle production
The Last days in the life of Vincent van Gogh( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tormented genius, van Gogh was only 37 when he shot himself at the scene of his last painting. 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. A Deutsche Welle production

Targeting Tumor Cells : New Strategies in Fighting Cancer( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pap smear was a diagnostic milestone in detecting precancerous cells. Researchers are developing similar tests, particularly ones based on genetic predisposition, as they learn to home in on other cancers. As this program illustrates, sophisticated screening is just one of the ways medicine has advanced the fight against a dreaded disease. The program also looks at the targeted destruction of tumors through drugs that either react to substances unique to tumor cells or suppress angiogenesis. The latest surgical techniques using lasers, robots, and endoscopes are examined as well. A Deutsche Welle Production

Enhanced vision : new directions in ophthalmology( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As this program illustrates, direct access to the eye coupled with technological wizardry has meant that ophthalmology is one of the most rapidly advancing areas of medicine.
