Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen

Saving the national treasures( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History meets technology in the ultimate preservation project. The nation's charters of freedom are in trouble. Since its creation over 200 years ago, the Declaration of Independence has seen plenty of abuse -- escaping the British armies rolled up in a saddlebag, traveling the country with the Continental Army, and baking in the window of the U.S. Patent Office. Now, the ink has faded so badly, it's rapidly disappearing. On top of that, the glass casements built to exhibit the Declaration in the National Archives started disintegrating, adding a new threat to the venerable parchment. A unique team of leading conservators, engineers, and historians came to the rescue. Over five years, NOVA's cameras followed their challenging, controversial plan to save the Declaration, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. NOVA captured behind-the-scenes debates and intricate engineering tests as the team figured out how to design state-of-the-art casements that would protect these precious documents from further damage. Saving the National Treasures is a compelling evocation of their turbulent history and an insider's look at the extraordinary technology that now safeguards America's charters of freedom. - Container

Liberty! The American Revolution The Reluctant Revolutionaries( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through interviews with historians and dramatic reenactments of eyewitness accounts, this documentary series chronicles the pivotal events that took place between 1763 and 1789 as the United States came into being. In 1763, America's capital city is London, Benjamin Franklin is considering retirement in England and no one connects Boston Harbor to tea parties. But British efforts to enforce the Stamp Act in 1765 bring protests in America, and attempts to impose sanctions on the colonies are met with increasing resistance. Dumping tea in Boston Harbor is the final straw. The British send troops to Massachusetts to quell the storm and install a military governor in the Spring of 1774. John Adams is called from Massachusetts to Philadelphia to become part of the first Continental Congress which included representatives from the thirteen colonies including George Washington, John Hancock, Samuel Adams and Thomas Jefferson. This ad hoc committee later finds itself forming a government. The Continental Congress installs the first army and assigns the army's first general. Though the colonists were reluctant to break from Mother England, the first shot at Lexington, whether intentional or by accident, becomes a declaration of war and the revolution officially begins. While the Continental Army engages the British Empire, Thomas Jefferson submits the first draft of the Declaration of Independence for the Congress's approval
