A child's guide to languages by Peter France( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it's English, Spanish, Chinese, or Urdu, babies and young children are able to pick up their native language with remarkable ease; no one language seems any more difficult than any other. Yet few children who are taught a language in school have anything to show for it when they grow up. Why is learning a second or third language so difficult? Are the teaching methods at fault? Enough is now known about the process of language acquisition to suggest that language teaching can be more effective. This BBC Horizon program looks at some of the different language acquisition methods in use in schools around the world

The first major TV series featuring Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist. These programs, filmed on location around the world, have helped millions of people understand the close relationship between the ideas of human freedom and economic freedom. The interaction between those ideas has created in the United States the richest and freest society the world has ever known. Milton Friedman sees this success threatened by the tendency in the last few decades to assume that government intervention is the answer to all problems. In these programs, which first aired on January 11, 1980, Dr. Friedman focuses on basic principles. How do markets work? Why has socialism failed? Can government help economic development? The 1980 version consists of 10 one-hour programs

Milton Friedman examines how Hungary and Czechoslovakia are rebuilding their collapsed economies. He argues that Eastern European countries must accept that governments create no wealth and that free, private markets are the only road to prosperity. He says that attempts to find a "third way" between socialism and free markets are doomed from the start. He examines how small businesses in Eastern Europe struggle to survive against the remains of extensive government control. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman talks further about government and the economy with Gary Becker of the University of Chicago and Samuel Bowles of the University of Massachusetts. They disagree about the results of economic controls in countries around the world, with Friedman defending his thesis that the best government role is the smallest one

The failure of socialism( Visual )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedman argues that socialism is based on the premise that people are better off when experts guide their lives. He uses U.S. public education as a case study of the failure of socialism. He endorses a voucher system to give choice and control back to parents because giving individuals the power to choose will lead to better results than centrally planned activity. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman explores the subject further with Gordon Tullock of the University of Arizona and Henry Levin of Stanford University. They debate what standards government should set for education, the role of public and private schools, the special needs of underprivileged children, and how much control parents should have over the schools
Created equal( Visual )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milton Friedman argues that quality of opportunity is the key to the vitality of free markets and the preservation of personal freedoms. He explains that although all men may be created equal, this does not mean that everyone will have equal talents or income. He claims that it is the poorer members of society who benefit most from freedom and who seldom see any gain from government programs justified in their name. Following the documentary, Dr. Friedman has a conversation with Michael Kinsley of the New Republic and Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution. They debate the desirability and effectiveness of such government initiatives as welfare programs, Head Start, student loans, and the graduated income tax

"In this program, Dr. Jonathan Miller addresses the subject of group talk, offering his observations on topics including the concept of 'speech acts' à la Wittgenstein, the implicit mechanics of verbal give-and-take, and the belief that social context, far from being a mere adjunct to linguistic communication, is actually the root cause of it.
