The war by Ken Burns( Visual )

"Six years in the making, this epic 15 hour film focuses on the stories of citizens from four geographically distributed American towns -- Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota. These four communities stand in for -- and could represent -- any town in the United States that went through the war's four devastating years. Individuals from each community take the viewer through their own personal and quite often harrowing journey into war, painting vivid portraits of how the war dramatically altered their lives and those of their neighbors, as well as the country that helped to save for generations to come"--Container

Hurricane Katrina : the storm that changed America( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On September 2, 2005, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin issued a "desperate S.O.S." His city, one of America's most historic and gracious urban centers, had been devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Now eighty percent of it lay underwater, while some citizens huddled on rooftops waiting for rescue, and others turned the flooded streets into canals of anarchy. In the first decade of the 21st century, despair, disease and death had transformed a great American city into a scene of third-world privation. Heroic rescue workers battled to save lives, restore order and aid the suffering. Now Time chronicles the story of the greatest natural disaster in U.S. history in Hurricane Katrina, An American Tragedy. Here, in stunning pictures and gripping first-hand accounts, is the terrible tale of Katrina's deadly wrath and savage aftermath. Here is America's Gulf Coast--from New Orleans to Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi--in ruins. Here are the struggling survivors and their valiant rescuers, the looters and the police who fought to control them, the homeless refugees who poured across the southeast and the resourceful agencies that took them in. It is an epic tale, told as only Time can tell it. Award-winning pictures reveal the scope of the disaster. Oral histories offer unforgettable accounts of nature's power and man's resourcefulness. Illuminating graphics show how hurricanes form--and why New Orleans flooded. Powerful reporting puts readers on the scene, while insightful analysis explores the questions left in Katrina's wake: Could the tragedy have been prevented, and why was aid so late to arrive? Moving and informative, sweeping in scope and ringing with the voices of those who were there, Hurricane Katrina, An American Tragedy is the definitive account of a disaster that will haunt Americans for decades to come

Tribute to Carnegie Hall, New York, in the form of a series of brief interviews with performers who have appeared on its stage. They share reminiscences of their own and others' performances, relay historical information, and discuss the variety of Carnegie Hall's presentations, which have included classical music, jazz, pop, comedy, drama, dance, children's concerts, and folk music. Archival footage of illustrious performers of the past and excerpts from more recent performances provide a sampling of the hall's offerings. A montage of the activities of past and present tenants of the building's many studios illustrates its importance to the arts. Tenants and supporters are seen protesting a proposed demolition in 1960, which would have had disastrous and wide-ranging effects. Interspersed through the program are excerpts from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an exhibition, played by the New York Youth Symphony conducted by Samuel Wong
