Consciousness by Grooverider( Visual )

Throughout human history, the everyday miracle of consciousness, of being aware, has led philosophers, poets, and mystics to believe that the essence of our being can exist independently of our bodies. This program examines: What do we know about human consciousness at the end of the 20th century? What progress has neuroscience made in explaining consciousness? How does our brain organize the sensory information it receives to create a coherent picture of our world? Will we develop computers that can mimic our sense of self?

The big burn( Visual )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by Timothy Egan’s best-selling book, “The Big Burn” is the dramatic story of an unimaginable wildfire that swept across the Northern Rockies in the summer of 1910. The fire devoured more than three million acres in 36 hours, confronting the fledgling U.S. Forest Service with a catastrophe that would define the agency and the nation’s fire policy for the rest of the 20th century and beyond. As America tries to manage its fire-prone landscapes in the 21st century, this film provides a cautionary tale of heroism and sacrifice, arrogance and greed, hubris and, ultimately, humility, in the face of nature’s frightening power.

How to Grow a City in Honduras( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Central and South America, ravaged by the drug trade, political instability and the highest murder rate in the world. It may seem like the last place on earth where businesses would want to invest, but a new idea is underway. Some call it a Startup City or Free City, others a LEAP Zone, and in Honduran law it's known as a ZEDE. They are politically autonomous, privately run zones that supporters believe could transform not only Honduras, but the entire developing world. This documentary interviews some of the key players behind the idea, explores both past and current criticism of the project, and looks ahead with some entrepreneurs who've already sketched out a business plan for what they hope will be one of the first Honduran startup cities.

The American Dream( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written and produced by John Maggio and narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Stanley Tucci, "The Italian Americans" explores the evolution of the Italian community, from "outsiders" in the late nineteenth viewed with suspicion and mistrust to some of the most prominent leaders of business, politics and the arts today. This film begins in postwar America, when Italian Americans moved to the suburbs and entered the middle-class. But even as crooners such as Frank Sinatra defined cool, they were haunted by accusations of Mafia ties reinforced in the media by Mario Puzo's "The Godfather." Over the next decades, Governor Mario Cuomo achieved success; Antonin Scalia became the first Italian American on the Supreme Court, and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives. But have Italian Americans finally shed the old stereotypes and become fully accepted in America? Distributed by PBS Distributions
Ancient Roots( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancient Roots traces the family history of three quintessential voices in American life. All three descend from ancestors that were part of the wave of Greek immigrants that flooded America's shores in the early decades of the 20th century. But along the way, the stories of their Greek ancestors were lost. In recovering these stories, we'll find that their ancestors overcame terrible hardship, and showed remarkable courage in times of war. For Tina Fey, we discover her 5th great-grandfather survived a terrible massacre, and became a hero in the Greek War of Independence. We reveal that David Sedaris' ancestors were also touched by the Greek War of Independence. Their home village was raided by the Ottoman military, and David's great grand-aunt was taken captive -- never to see her family again. And we learn that George Stephanopoulos' family was willing to sacrifice their own lives in the struggle against the Nazi occupation of Greece during World War I. Distributed by PBS Distribution
Becoming Americans( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written and produced by John Maggio and narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Stanley Tucci, "The Italian Americans" explores the evolution of the Italian community, from "outsiders" in the late nineteenth viewed with suspicion and mistrust to some of the most prominent leaders of business, politics and the arts today. This film explores racial discrimination faced by immigrants from 1900 to 1930. In public schools, children were taught to reject their Italian identity to assimilate to American culture. Arturo Giovannitti led the largest labor strike of 1912, winning better working conditions and wages. When Italian Americans were marginalized by the Irish Archdiocese, they took to the streets to reinforce their beliefs and culture. Anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti's execution reinforced negative stereotypes, while Prohibition bred a new kind of organized criminal. Distributed by PBS distribution
