I'm a child anorexic( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 280 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 by Bertolt Brecht( Visual )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 213 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( Visual )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 150 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
