"Former Mayor Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker. Ferocious, charismatic, and hilariously blunt, Koch, who died in February 2013 at the age of 88, ruled New York from 1978 to 1989--a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and rampant crime... The tumult of his three terms included a fiercely competitive 1977 election; an infamous 1980 transit strike; the burgeoning AIDS epidemic; landmark housing renewal initiatives; and an irreparable municipal corruption scandal. Through candid interviews and rare archival footage, Koch thrillingly chronicles the personal and political toll of running the world's most wondrous city in a time of upheaval and reinvention"--Container

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans have had a long love affair with dogs, with many of us referring to our canine companions as best friends, significant others, soul mates, even children. But lost amidst all the pampering and pedestaling are hard and often tragic truths surrounding dog ownership, care and commerce, not to mention the daunting odds continuing to face millions of unwanted shelter dogs. Divided into three parts - "Fear," "Loss," and "Betrayal"--This ... documentary is comprised of different stories that probe the complicated and conflicted relationships we have with canines. Collectively, the segments reveal the sobering realities behind our relationship with dogs, showing not only how far some dog lovers will go for their pets, but how far we as a nation have to go in order to treat all dogs humanely."--Container

On August 29th, 2005, a catastrophic hurricane named Katrina made landfall on the Gulf coast of the United States. When the skies finally cleared, the survival of New Orleans hung in the balance. In the wake of this devastating event, as Americans continue a dialogue about the future of one of the nation's most distinctive cities, PBS American Experience presents New Orleans, a provocative history of the city that lies at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi. Over the course of two compelling hours, the film tells the story of America's most original urban culture, through rich archival photographic material, footage miraculously spared from the devastation, and a mingling of first-hand interviews with city natives including, Leah Chase, "The Queen of Creole Cuisine," stonemason Teddy Pierre, and renowned jazz musician Irvin Mayfield

"More than 40 years after his death, Hemingway is one of the most widely read, and widely written about American authors. His distinct style and profound influence are indisputable; his larger-than-life persona is still the stuff of heated debate. As well known in his lifetime as any movie star, Hemingway was a dashing international figure who challenged the notion that writers exist in an ivory tower. There were the battles, the bull fights, the big game, the booze-and he channeled these experiences into stark prose, creating a new form of expression, describing action and emotion in simple, authentic terms. An enormous critical success, his major works-The Old Man and the Sea, A Farewell to Arms, The Sun Also Rises, For Whom the Bell Tolls-are still in print, some in as many as 20 languages. The recent excitement over Cuba's release of their Hemingway collection is unmatched in modern literature. It is the literature, it is the written word and the art of Hemingway's storytelling that forms the heart and the freshness of this film, the point of departure from which Hemingway's life and work are uniquely explored."
