Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee. With a desire to report the facts and enlighten the public, Murrow, and his dedicated staff - headed by his producer Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba in the CBS newsroom - defy corporate and sponsorship pressures to examine the lies and scaremongering tactics perpetrated by McCarthy during his communist 'witch-hunts'.

"Every year, thousands of Antarctica's emperor penguins make an astonishing journey to breed their young. They walk - marching day and night in single file 70 miles into the darkest, driest and coldest continent on Earth ... Breathtaking photography captures the transcendent beauty and staggering drama of devoted parent penguins who, in the fierce polar winter, take turns guarding their egg and trekking to the ocean in search of food. Predators hunt them, storms lash at them. But the safety of their adorable chicks makes it all worthwhile."--Container

"Is there someone who lingers in your memory - someone who makes you wonder what might have been? Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy make magic again, reprising their Before Sunrise roles of Jesse and Celine and reuniting with director Richard Linklater (School of Rock) in this engaging tale of love and renewal. When Jesse and Celine first met in the mid '90s, their few hours together in Vienna were spontaneous and life-altering. Nine years later, lightning strikes twice. They unexpectedly meet in Paris ... and have only one fading afternoon to decide if they should share their tomorrows. Smart, witty, real and unfolding largely in real time to heighten its immediacy, Before Sunset glows with the moments that are every heart's greatest adventure."--Container
