The story of India by Michael Wood( Visual )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,570 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

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

Guillaume Tell by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

9 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Audi's new production of Guillaume Tell marked the first appearance of Rossini's final operatic masterpiece on the Met stage for nearly 85 years. Composed for the Paris Opera in 1829 and based on a play by Schiller, Guillaume Tell uses thrilling vocals, grand ballets, and magnificent choruses to tell the story of Swiss patriots throwing off the yoke of Austrian oppression. Baritone Gerald Finley sings the title role, lending great dignity to his character with his commanding yet beautiful singing. As the heroic youth Arnold, tenor Bryan Hymel excites with one blazing high note after another, opposite the spellbinding soprano Marina Rebeka as the conflicted Hapsburg princess Mathilde. John Relyea is the malevolent Austrian governor Gesler, and Janai Brugger shines as Tell's spirited son Jemmy. Fabio Luisi conducts a lively account of Rossini's score, beginning with its famously explosive overture
