Guns, germs, and steel by Jared M Diamond( Visual )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 2,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic detective story that offers a gripping expose on why the world is so unequal. Professor Jared Diamond traveled the globe for over 30 years trying to answer this question. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Why did Eurasians conquer, displace, or decimate Native Americans, Australians, and Africans, instead of the reverse? Diamond dismantles racially based theories of human history by revealing the environmental factors actually responsible for history's broadest patterns -- episode 1, Out of Eden, cites evidence from Papua New Guinea to the Middle East to support Diamond's theory that a society's development may have had less to do with skill or ingenuity, than the ability to raise high-protein grains and domesticated livestock. He suggests that successful farming gave rise to an explosion of sophisticated civilizations, from the Fertile Crescent to the New World. -- episode 2, Conquest, Spanish conquistador Pizarro's 16th century assault on the Inca is the focus this episode. Was it the Spaniards' advanced weaponry that defeated the empire? Or was it also the Europeans' innate resilience to some infectious diseases? The European triumph of the New World may have rested on an agent of conquest unknown to even the conquerors, and that proved deadlier than any human foe. -- episode 3, Into the tropics, Diamond extends his quest to Africa, probing early European attempts to colonize the continent. The conquerors were initially successful, repelling native attackers with rifles and Maxim guns, but they met unexpected obstacles when they moved from temperate zones to the tropics. The debilitating scourge of malaria, like the AIDS epidemic of today, overwhelmed their mightiest resources

And when Sam and Lindy return to the perilous mountain together, the truth behind his imagined transformation emerges"--Book description
The Roosevelts : an Intimate History( Visual )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profiles Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-part, 14 hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of these years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of the National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear

The brain fitness program by PBS( Visual )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you are fifty years old today, you will probably live into your mid-eighties. If you live into your mid-eighties, there is a more than even probability that your brain will decline in function before you die. Over fifty neuroscientists have worked to create a system for strengthening the brain and making it perform with more agility, speed, and comprehension. The Brain Fitness Program is based on the concepts of neuroplasticity--the ability of the brain to change, adapt, and even rewire itself. The brain remains highly malleable or 'plastic' throughout life and by presenting the brain with the proper stimuli, scientists assert that this can drive beneficial physical and functional change. This program can help with understanding how the brain works, and how to keep it fit

"Save our history: The Star-Spangled Banner" recaptures the events that led Francis Scott Key to write the song which would become our national anthem. This song was written at the Battle of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812
