Reporters and reporting( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A brilliant program, this thoughtful and analytical quartet of videos probes the moral questions that plague journalists: What is the truth and whose truth is it? Is there such a thing as true objectivity? What does it mean when the same picture can be used to illustrate opposite points of view? What distortions are introduced by the journalist's own ego-to be first, best, most artistic, most insightful? These programs show how reporters have to contend with editors and producers who are concerned with selling their products or who want to impose a particular interpretation, and with the actors in the actual drama-who may wish to control or manipulate their story, or prevent its being told, or who distrust the journalist seeking to tell it. This four-part program offers painstaking interviews with many leading journalists: Bob Woodward, Gordon Parks, Barbara Kopple, and also many French and German reporters whose thoughtful analyses of their work as they see it are spoken in their native languages and subtitled in English. The narration throughout is in English. Part 1: The Force of EvidenceThe same picture, interpreted differently, with a different frame of reference. What is the truth? What makes a document the emblem of truth? Reporters interviewed include Erich Lessing, Jimmy Fox, Robert Lebeck, Christophe de Ponfilly, Peter Scholl Latour, Laurence Deonna, and Donald McCullin. Part 2: The Risk of InquiryHow an element is used to define the whole and how the reporter must merge into the scene to capture its truth. Reporters interviewed include Thomas Hopker, Jean Luc Porquet, Leo Hurwitz, Gordon Parks, Gunter Wallraff, and Miguel Littin. Part 3: The Passion for DiscoveryDo reporters seek out danger because they are at heart adventurers? Do they covet the power given them by their own cameras? How can the reporter maintain his or her distance while still capturing the emotion of the event? Reporters interviewed include Jean Gaumy, Wilfred Thesiger, Gerard Gery, Marc Riboud, Robert Lebeck, and Susan Meiselas. Part 4: The Power of InvestigationWhere is the line between objectivity and subjectivity? The magazine story as antidote to the television news. Stories that can't be filmed live and are reconstructed-falsified. Reporters interviewed include Frederic Laffont, Claude Torracinta, Duncan Campbell, Edwy Plenel, Robert Richter, Esther Cassidy, and Barbara Kopple.(3 hours 38 minutes) A streaming videorecording

5 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Picasso and dance by Opéra National de Paris( Visual )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A program commemorating Pablo Picasso as an artistic collaborator with Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. The first part of the program, The story of a marriage uses Picasso's portrait of his ballerina wife Olga Koklova as a departure point for discussions of his designs for the ballets Parade, Le tricorne, Pulcinella, Mercure, and Le train bleu. The second part consists of reconstructions of two ballets, recorded in performance by the Paris Opéra Ballet at the Palais Garnier. Between 1917 and 1962, Picasso was involved in creating the designs for nine ballets. Le Train Bleu (The Blue Train) dates from 1924 and Le Tricorne (The Three-Cornered Hat) from 1919. These two historic ballets, created originally by Sergei Diaghilev, have been revived by the Paris Opera Ballet. Le Train Bleu is an operetta dansé of a chic and flippant society. Jean Cocteau, who wrote the scenario, mockingly celebrates the cult of open air life, fine bodies and sport. The dances are inspired by golf, tennis, swimming and acrobatics. Le Tricorne is Spanish from start to finish. Picasso, a native of Andalusia, created sets, costumes, and a stage curtain, which evokes the atmosphere of the ballet by means of a typically Spanish scene. The story, told with humour and warmth, is of a miller's wife, her jealous husband and a senile magistrate by whom she is pursued
