The story of India by Michael Wood( Visual )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historian Michael Wood chronicles the history of the Indian subcontinent, focusing especially on the diversity of its peoples, cultures and landscapes. The world's largest democracy and a rising economic giant, India is now as well known across the globe for its mastery of computer technology as it is for its many-armed gods and its famous spiritual traditions. But India is also the world's most ancient surviving civilization, with unbroken continuity back into prehistory. India's history is a ten thousand year epic but for over two millennia, India has been at the center of world history: birthplace of two world religions, home of an extraordinary spectrum of music, dance, literature, science, mathematics, economics, and a revolutionary idea whose power has yet to diminish. It has seen successive invasions from Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan to Tamburlaine and the British, all of whom left their mark but all of whom succumbed--in the end--to India herself
The African Queen by John Huston( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the start of World War I, German imperial troops burn down a mission in Africa. The mission's reverend was so overtaken with disappointment that he passes away. Shortly after his well-educated, snooty sister Rose buries her brother, she must leave on the only available transport, the 'African Queen' steamboat. The boat is manned by the ill-mannered bachelor, Charlie. Together they embark on a long difficult journey, without any comfort. Rose grows determined to assist in the British war effort and presses Charlie until he finally agrees and together they steam up the Ulana encountering an enemy fort, raging rapids, bloodthirsty parasites and endlessly branching steam which always seem to lead them to what appear to be impenetrable swamps. Despite their opposing personalities, the two grow closer to each other and ultimately carry out their plan to take out a German warship
In search of Shakespeare by Michael Wood( Visual )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This four-part series explores the life of the world's greatest and most famous writer. Mixing travel, adventure, interviews, documentary, and live action sequences with the Royal Shakespeare Company, it presents a biography of one Elizabethan: his life, family and friendships, triumphs and disasters, loves and his losses. Viewers see how Shakespeare's life and work were shaped by his times, how he created some of the greatest literature in the world, and why he is still loved. These films reveal how Shakespeare sums up English history--and the English character too--more than any other person. Decent, humane, open minded, tolerant, witty, bawdy, sexy, diffident, guarded, skeptical, wary of any political system, identifying himself with the "Other" in his great portrayals of black people, women, the poor, Jews-- even evil people--Shakespeare is an artist born out of turbulent times. But as his old friend, Ben Jonson said, "He was not of an age, but for all time."
