8 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cultural Revolution, which started in 1966, had less to do with culture than with a violent attempt to control the minds of the Chinese people.

Beginning with an excerpt from The dismissal of Hai Rui, this program presents the details of the movement that led to the deaths of half a million people before finally consuming itself. Jack Gray, author of Rebellions and revolutions, and Zhang Yongning, son of a Party official, offer their insights into the Communist politics of the day"--Container

Although the shocking murder of Sergei Kirov-the charismatic Party member whose popularity threatened the power base of his friend, Stalin-impacted the lives of millions, the truth behind it has long remained a mystery.

The Quest for Olwen( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Destined by a spell, cast by his stepmother, to love only Olwen, Culhwch begins his quest to seek her hand, but the road to marriage is paved with seemingly insurmountable obstacles set by her father, the evil giant, Ysbaddaden. Thus begins one of the loveliest of the Tales of the Mabinogion, some manuscripts of which are at least 700 years old. The legends themselves are of course far older, though their spell is as powerful today as it was when rugged warriors and their ladies listened to the adventures of King Arthur and Merlin and giants and dragons, of the daunting adventures that pitted noble heroes against the powers of magic and evil. Outstanding animation is the technique for portraying the stirring tale of Culhwch and Olwen
