John Curry transformed ice-skating from a dated sport into an exalted art form. Coming out on the night of his Olympic win in 1976, he became the first openly gay Olympian in a time when homosexuality was not even fully legal. Toxic yet charming; rebellious yet elitist; emotionally aloof yet spectacularly needy; ferociously ambitious yet bent on self-destruction, this is a man forever on the run: from his father's ghost, his country, and even his own self

Why we buy( Visual )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program places consumers under a microscope to quantify the psychological spectrum of buying, from everyday habits that typically steer Americans through their supermarkets and malls to a clinical disorder in which the high of making a purchase becomes the goal of shopping. James Twitchell, author of ADCULT USA; psychologist David Lewis, author of The Soul of the New Consumer; Brian Wansink, director of the University of Illinois' Food and Brand Lab; brand strategist Robin Lauffer; and others focus on a variety of topics, including the biochemistry of shopping, the intersection of branding and lifestyle, consumerism as a way of life, and compulsive shopping disorder
American masters : Billie Jean King by Billie Jean King( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Billie Jean King is the single most important female athlete of the 20th century, winner of 39 Grand Slam titles and a major force in changing and democratizing the cultural landscape. AMERICAN MASTERS looks back to the 12-year-old girl who played tennis on public courts, observed disparity and, as she soared athletically, never stopped trying to remedy inequality. Perhaps best remembered from "The Battle of the Sexes" match vs. Bobby Riggs on Sept. 20, 1973, her competitiveness on the court was matched by her efforts on behalf of women and the LGBT community, and her commitment to prove there is strength in diversity. King presents her own story, with perspective from Serena and Venus Williams, Hillary Clinton, Maria Sharapova, members of the Virginia Slims Circuit "Original 9" including Rosie Casals, Gloria Steinem, Chris Evert, Bobby Riggs' son Larry, family, friends, and many others. Through these interviews and archival footage, the film illustrates the life of a woman whose journey became not just a battle for personal glory but a sociopolitical battle for equality for all

Secrets and lies : face-to-face communication( Visual )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every face contains secrets. Paradoxically, our faces reveal our innermost feelings, making plain to astute observers the fears and desires we struggle hardest to conceal. It is for this reason that the most powerful form of communication remains the face-to-face meeting--and why the computer may be endangering as well as enhancing our capacity for self-expression. This program features actor John Cleese as he explores how we read faces in a continual effort to build relationships, probe the thoughts and feelings of others, and influence those around us. Viewers encounter a young girl who has no facial expressions, a laughter school in Mumbai, and a smiling school in Tokyo, while Cleese questions our growing reliance on digital technology for facilitating human interaction. A BBC/TLC Coproduction. Part of the series The Human Face. (49 minutes) A streaming videorecording
