I'm a child anorexic( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 247 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
Bertolt Brecht( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 230 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
The chemistry of life : milestones in genetics( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Adam Rutherford explores how scientists began to probe ever deeper into the cell in order to unlock the secret of life. 'Chemistry of life' begins in Tübingen, Germany, where an unlikely experiment in 1869 provided the first clue. Using pus-covered bandages from injured Prussian War soldiers and the contents of a pig's stomach, Firedrich Miescher, a keen young scientist at Europe's first biochemistry lab, made a crucial discovery about the nucleus of all cells. He found a strange molecule never seen in nature before. Since it was only found in the nucleus, he called it "nuclein"; we now know it as DNA"--Container
The hidden kingdom : early discoveries in cell science( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a businessman, not a trained scientist, who first gained entry to the cryptic world of cells. This program relates the early history of microbiology and genetics, beginning with the story of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, a 17th-century Dutch textile merchant with a talent for making microscopes. Moving from van Leeuwenhoek's discovery of "animalcules" to Robert Hooke's cork studies and coinage of the term cell, the film then focuses on Joseph Jackson Lister's multi-lens microscope technology, Robert Brown's identification of cell nuclei, and the collaboration of Theodor Schwann and Matthias Schleiden. Robert Remak's groundbreaking findings about cell division form the climax of the episode
Identity crisis : self-image in childhood( Visual )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What shapes a child's identity--situation and surroundings, or unchangeable factors within the child? This program weighs in on that question by capturing the emotional and psychological development of 25 boys and girls at age five. In fascinating and sometimes disturbing scenes, the children reveal clear signals about their self-worth and their expectations for the future that bear strong connection to nationality, gender, skin color, economic class, and the presence or absence of either parent. Powerful in its social implications as well as its emotional impact, this brings vital documentation to the nature vs. nurture debate

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 146 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
Shell shock( Visual )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When oil conglomerate Shell stunned investors by announcing a 20 percent reduction in its proven reserves, pensions and portfolios suffered around the world. This program reveals a pattern of exaggeration and cover-up at the company's top level -- specifically involving the former chairman and head of production. An unflinching analysis of a failure in business ethics, Shell Shock raised complex and timely questions: At what point did protection of the company's image usurp shareholder interests? How did financial industry safeguards let such a crisis develop? And how can similar fiascoes be prevented in the future?
