Destination America( Visual )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary is organized around some of the driving forces that have compelled individuals to immigrate to America for centuries and have remained constant throughout history - economic opportunity, religious freedom, and artistic expression. As well, the series looks at the particular forces that drive women to come to America in search of opportunity and the basic human rights they had been denied in their homelands. Contemporary stories are the centerpiece of each episode, along with historic portraits of immigrants who came before. The past and present day experiences of immigrants resonate with each other. To say goodbye to everything you have known and loved and set off for another country has always been a wrenching experience. The films focus on the world the immigrants left behind, the roots that defined them, and the frustrations, hardships, discontents, and ambitions that made and continues to make America their destination

LBJ by David Grubin( Visual )

20 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LBJ, Lyndon Baines Johnson -- Texan, Democrat, political virtuoso. He rises up out of the 1960s like a Colossus, like something from Shakespeare, filling the stage -- 10, 12 characters in one. He is admired and he is detested. But the real measure of a leader is what he gets done, the size of the problems he faces. Before Lyndon Johnson, we were essentially a segregated society. Inequality among black Americans in the South was set in law. Before Lyndon Johnson, there was no Head Start program, no Medicare -- so much that we take for granted -- and before Lyndon Johnson, very few Americans had even heard of Vietnam. He is a story, a very American story and, in all, a tragedy in the real sense. He is the central character in a struggle of moral importance ending in ruin
