La batalla de Chile : "On September 11, 1973, President Salvador Allende's democratically-elected Chilean government was overthrown in a bloody coup by General Augusto Pinochet's army. Patricio Guzmán and five colleagues had been filming the political developments in Chile throughout the nine months leading up to that day. The bombing of the Presidential Palace, during which Allende died, would now become the ending for Guzmán's seminal documentary ...

Miracle planet( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There was a moment in Earth's history, about 250 million years ago, when all life nearly disappeared from the planet. Scientists now believe the cause was an eruption of the Earth's molten core that triggered global climate change. The resulting drop in oxygen levels allowed dinosaurs to rise to supremacy because of their respiratory systems. But in the Earth's continuing cycle of Extinction and Rebirth, they too would suffer a catastrophic end some 150 million years later."--Container
Beef, Inc. fat profits and lean standards( Visual )

As traditional cattle-raising by independent producers is displaced by the intense livestock production of agribusiness giants, consumers are paying the price. This in-depth program examines the practices of North American meat multinationals, which raise livestock on huge feedlots. Genetic engineering, growth hormones, antibiotics, the monopolization of world markets, and other issues are addressed, along with concerns that these beefed-up cattle pose risks both to consumer health and to the world's economy-and do not taste very good, either

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All life on earth shares some of the same genetic code, forming a kind of evolutionary tree. Could that tree have its deepest roots in the stars?
