LeMystère des Mayas by Barrie Howells ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Indiqué sur la jaquette : Du plus profond des jungles du Mexique et du Guatemala à l'assise calcaire de la presqu'île du Yucatan se dressent les fabuleux temples, pyramides et palais des Mayas. Alors que l'Europe était encore plongée à l'âge des ténèbres, ce peuple brillant pratiquait la cosmographie, avait inventé ce qui demeure encore aujourd'hui le seul système d'écriture indigène aux Amériques, avait accumulé une somme impressionnante de connaissances mathématiques et s'adonnait à la computation du temps. Sans bénéficier d'outils métalliques, de bêtes de somme ou même de la roue, les Mayas ont néanmoins érigé de vastes cités dont la perfection architecturale et la diversité sont saisissantes. Pendant plus d'un siècle, la plupart des gens ont refusé d'admettre que les jungles du Nouveau monde aient pu être le bassin d'une civilisation aussi brillante, jusqu'à ce qu'une poignée d'archéologues et d'explorateurs intrépides commencent à lever le voile sur ce fantastique mystère
A long way from home ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spans two centuries of Canadian military history, from our colonial dependence on Britain to our present-day alliances. The film shatters old myths to shed new light on the people and events that have shaped our current defence policy. It explains why we spend more than $9 billion every year keeping Canadian troops a long way from home. Where they couldn't defend Canada in another war anyway. Gwynne Dyer hosts the three-part Defence of Canada series
First emperor of China by Tony Lanzelo ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A narrated dramatization of the reign of Chʻin Shih-huang, concluding with the excavation of the terra cotta army buried in Shensi Province
Anybody's son will do ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Follows the ten week training program at the Parris Island Marine Recruit Training Depot, South Carolina
The Space between ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Space Between outlines Canada's strategic position today in "a nuclear noman'sland". Because of its location directly between the two superpowers, Canada is faced with a dilemma. The film suggests that perhaps the time has come for Canadians to look carefully at our traditional position - "perhaps being a junior partner isn't in our best interest anymore"
Keeping the elephants away ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Describes the nature and history of military alliances, as well as outlining the events that led to the creation of the UN, NATO and Canada's peace-keeping forces. The film also looks at a Canadian paradox : while we were willing partners in NATO and the development of the atomic bomb, we refused to build or have that bomb within our borders. Gwynne Dyer hosts the three-part Defence of Canada series
