Seeing is believing ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 1: Knowledge of the universe is built on the foundations laid down by thousands of years of scientific inquiry. This program explores mathematics and how it revolutionized our view of the universe. Recollect Ptolemy's theory of the motion of the planets, moon and sun; Newton's picture of the universe governed by gravity; Einstein's revolutionized theory of physics and Hubble's invention of the telescope that saw the expansion of the universe
Bodymatters by David Filkin ( Book )

Stephen Hawking's universe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 6: We now know the universe had a beginning and how all the matter formed but there is still one outstanding question: how did the Big Bang begin? Stephen Hawking is joined by other leading scientists as they try to answer this question. Includes discussions of inflation theory, quantum mechanics and string theory
Why planes fly and other things ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discusses why planes fly, basic physics principles relating to flight, and the factors the must be overcome to allow a plane to fly
Stephen Hawking's universe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 4: At night the stars are seen in the blackness of space. But is the space empty? In the 1950's an American scientist discovered that the stars in rotating spirical galaxies seem to be held together by an unseen force. Vera Rubin proposed that the space between the stars was filled by invisible stuff she called dark matter. Scientists now believe that dark matter could make up 99% of the universe. The race is now on to find this mysterious stuff hoping to determine if the universe will expand forever or end as a frozen desert or contract under the force of gravity into a "big crunch."
Black holes and beyond ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 5: Discusses Hawking's specialty, black holes. With the invention of radio astronomy over 50 years ago many astronomical discoveries came to light including ultraluminous quasars, wormholes, black holes and singularities. It was discovered that quasars, bizarre objects billions of light years away with a power output greater than all of the stars in our galaxy put together, shine brightly as matter is sucked into a black hole and heats up due to friction. Such discoveries seem to allow for travel over millions of miles of space or even time travel and have even led to SETI--the search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence--looking for stray alien communications
From cradle to grave ( Visual )

Economist Milton Friedman examines the welfare system in the United States, its history and its effects
How to cure inflation ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Milton Friedman argues that inflation is caused by the excessive growth of the monetary supply and that its cure lies not in wage and price control, but in the natural movement of a free, unhindered economy. In the debate that follows, bankers and government leaders discuss his views
