After Newtown : guns in America( Visual )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the first European settlements in the New World to frontier justice; from 19th Century immigrant riots to gangland violence in the Roaring Twenties; from the Civil War to Civil Rights, guns have been at center of our national narrative for four hundred years. Americans have relied on guns to sustain communities, challenge authority, and keep the peace. Efforts to curtail their distribution and ownership have triggered epic political battles. On one side, the cry for gun control gets louder with each mass shooting
Lives together, worlds apart : men and women in a time of change( Visual )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on case studies from first- and third-world nations, this program exposes the "gender apartheid" that has led to the marginalization of women around the world through violence and poverty. Commentary by Kofi Annan, secretary general of the UN; Festus Mogae, president of Botswana; and Margaret Jay, Britain's minister for women, as well as by many grassroots leaders reveals the victimization that is occurring through educational neglect, unfair labor practices, spouse abuse, and inadequate reproductive healthcare. The positive effects of rural empowerment programs, battered women refuges, and free health and legal counseling are also presented-but will cuts in funding sweep away the good that these initiatives have done?
Changing nature : population and environment at a crossroads( Visual )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program examines how urbanization, industrialization, and overreaching agriculture are depleting the Earth of its natural resources. Citing environmental changes in Morocco, Ghana, Ukraine, Mexico, and Vietnam, the program studies the impact of population growth and profiles organizations that respond to ecological crises stemming from such growth. With a focus on educational outreach efforts, particularly those for women and children, and the promotion of sustainable development in environmentally compromised regions, Changing Nature concludes that all ecological problems are essentially global and require global solutions
First steps : worldwide response to the landmine crisis( Visual )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emmylou Harris narrates this in-depth program, which describes the growing international effort to eliminate the widespread menace of landmines. Examining the work of international agencies and humanitarian groups, the program documents mine-removal initiatives in three heavily affected nations: Angola, Albania, and Azerbaijan. With the cooperation of dedicated mine-clearance units, the process is explained from inception to completion, chronicling the training of de-mining troops, the deployment of supporting technologies, and the implementation of the mine-riddance process throughout the host country.

Elusive justice : the search for Nazi war criminals( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the 65-year effort to identify, prosecute, and punish the 20th century's most notorious murderers. In the face of apathy, obstruction, and violence, the men and women who pursued Nazi fugitives not only brought a measure of dignity to the victims of the Holocaust, they also reminded the international community that enemies of humanity must be punished, if humanity is to survive
Red metal : the Copper Country Strike of 1913( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic labor strike that devastated Michigan's Copper Country in 1913 haunts the American labor movement to this day. Among the notable elements of that strike was the death of 73 children at a union Christmas party, a tragedy immortalized by Woody Guthrie in his ballad "1913 Massacre", performed in the film by Steve Earle. The event remains the deadliest unsolved manslaughter in U.S. history
