I'm a child anorexic( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Therapists in America and Europe have noticed a disturbing trend: anorexia now appears in elementary-school-age children. This film documents the highs and lows of a London clinic's 12-week program, during which malnourished patients must confront and conquer their fears of eating. Girls as young as eight enter the clinic dangerously emaciated and depressed-and although most battle their way back to good health and reunions with loved ones, do their attitudes toward food really change? Once home, will they revert to old ways? The documentary reveals frighteningly distorted beliefs that run rampant among the young patients-one girl even insists that water contains calories-and it offers surprising revelations about the role of idealized body images in the media
The hidden kingdom : early discoveries in cell science( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first in a three-part series in which biologist Adam Rutherford looks in depth at cells. This part begins by looking back to the first discovery of a cell under the microscope, in Holland, 1674. The history of the cell is bound up with the history of microscopes and the improvement of lenses. We hear how Antoni van Leeuwenhoek discovered the microscopic world of cell life in the late 17th century, and the role of Robert Hooke in deciphering this. Eventually, though, the imagination of the microscope pioneers wasn't matched by their technology. However, philosophers such as van Helmont believed that life emerged spontaneously and did not make a connection with the findings of Hooke and Leeuwenhoek. Robert Brown discovered the nucleus while researching plant life at Kew Gardens; this was to be a major influence on cell theory as was his later Brownian motion to inspire atomic theory. The design of greater microscopes was begun by Joseph Lister; Theodor Schwann utilised this new technology when investigating human and animal flesh but still it was only when he encountered the botanical studies of Matthias Schleiden that the theory of cell life was born. However, they were mistaken in thinking that new cells emerged through spontaneous generation. In Paris, Louis Pasteur successfully countered this theory but it was Robert Remak who discovered cell division, founding the field of embryology

Bertolt Brecht( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The German poet, playwright, and theatrical reformer who developed the drama as a social and ideological forum is the subject of this program, in which those who knew him discuss his life and many works. Excerpts from plays such as Mother Courage and her children, The life of Galileo, The good woman of Setzuan, and Antigone highlight the development of Brecht's austere form of irregular verse. A later work, A little Orgnum for the theater, is the embodiment of Brecht's idea of true Marxist drama."--Container

Battle of the brains by Ying guo guo jia guang bo gong si huan qiu gong si(British Broadcasting Corporation Worldwide)( Visual )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Horizon takes seven people who are some of the highest flyers in their field - a musical prodigy, a quantum physicist, an artist, a dramatist, an RAF fighter pilot, a chess grandmaster and a Wall Street trader. Each is put through a series of tests to discover who is the most intelligent? The principle way that we measure intelligence, the IQ test, remains popular and convenient. Yet most psychologists agree that it only tells half the story. This program advocates a different approach, creating an array of unusual challenges to assess brainpower and positing an argument for the interplay of multiple intelligences. Assisted by the insights of Harvards Howard Gardner and experts using brain scanning technology at UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute, the program brings together a group of obviously bright and talented people and presents them with trials of all shapes and sizes. The results establish the validity of measuring not just what people know but also the equally important ways in which they exercise their practical, creative, emotional, and kinesthetic IQs
