Oppenheimer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This miniseries opens in Berkeley, California in 1938, where pampered, tenured professors, safe on the shores of peaceful America, dabble in radical politics as the world heads inevitably towards war. J. Robert Oppenheimer is such a one. Two events--one personal, one scientific--combine to change Oppy's life forever and catapult him from a moderately successful theoretician to a world famous figure. First, news of successful fission experiments in Europe spurs him to pursue a role in the government's efforts to develop an atomic bomb. Second, new wife Kitty is pushing him to advance his career during the coming war years. Oppenheimer wanted to be both a radical and a member of the establishment; was paradoxically both a tortured socialist and a hardened realist. He appreciated the opportunity the military gave him to develop a project he would never have realized in his university career, despite believing that scientists aren't the only ones to pass moral judgments on the results of their experiments. Moreover, although some of the more unsavory aspects of Oppenheimer's career seem to have been deliberately elided, on balance, the portrayal of Oppenheimer is dramatically inclusive, and avoids the pitfalls of portraying him as a tragically heroic figure. After being shown in Britain in 1980, Oppenheimer aired in the US on PBS's American Playhouse in 1982

Rebels & redcoats how Britain lost America( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eyewitness accounts, original documents, and dramatizations of battles tell an uncommon story of the American Revolution. British military historian Richard Holmes focuses on the military struggle -- on the soldiers, the leaders, the tactics, and the strategy of this grand conflict. It is told from an unusual point of view -- that of the British losers. It also explores painful conflicts within the American people themselves -- brothers, friends, and families forced to choose sides between loyalist and rebels -- and the bitter disappointments of black slaves in the south, promised freedom by the British. This series traces the ups and downs of this drama from the beginning of the insurrection in Boston to the surrender of the British forces to General George Washington in Yorktown, Virginia. It puts the war in the context of the world events that strongly affected its outcome and that helped to put a new powerful player, the United States, on the world map
