Photography Transformed examines surveillance photography and the Cuban Missile crisis, searing images from the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights violence-while highlighting the transformation to the new era of image-driven celebrity, presidential "image politics," and the challenge to achieve photographic truth when computers have the ability to alter photography without detection. The film presents a message that is very clear: despite new technologies, still images-whether captured on film or as electrons-will endure

An empire of reason( Visual )

9 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Docudrama recreating the ratification debates on the U.S. Constitution as if they were being covered by today's television news, highlighting the New York convention in July, 1788. "The premise of the show is simple. What if television had existed in 1788? How would it have covered New York State's debate about whether or not to ratify the U.S. Constitution? With historical figures wearing modern dress and using familiar language, the film allows today's audience to understand firsthand the forces that shaped this country two hundred years ago. The argument, characters, passions and debating points are historically accurate, but the language and the medium of the debate is modern in form. Present day newscasters and commentators play themselves, reporting on the events of the 1780s as though they were occurring now. Each segment of the program is in a format familiar to today's audience -- Walter Cronkite anchoring the nightly news, Al Roker giving the weather report, Forrest Sawyer reporting from the field, William F. Buckley querying his guests, plus a smattering of commercials, etc."--Website

Episode 1. In 1763 American colonists were happily British, and proud to be subjects of King George. With the end of the French and Indian war, America became a land of opportunity, and the future founding fathers were poised to take advantage of it. Then the British imposed a seemingly routine tax--the Stamp Act. It created a firestorm throughout the colonies as Americans saw their liberties and power threatened. Benjamin Franklin found himself in the center of controversy as relations between England and America unravelled--Container
