Oppenheimer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 188 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

Mr. Bones : twenty stories by Paul Theroux( Recording )

A family watches in horror as their patriarch transforms into the singing, wise-cracking lead of an old-timey minstrel show. A renowned art collector relishes publicly destroying his most valuable pieces. Two boys stand by helplessly as their father stages an all-consuming war on the raccoons living in the woods around their house. A young artist devotes himself to a wealthy, malicious gossip, knowing that it's just a matter of time before she turns on him. In this new collection of short stories, acclaimed author Paul Theroux explores the tenuous leadership of the elite and the surprising revenge of the overlooked. He shows us humanity possessed, consumed by its own desire and compulsion, always with his carefully honed eye for detail and the subtle idiosyncrasies that bring his characters to life

Rebels & redcoats : how Britain lost America( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 117 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

White Fang by Jack London( Recording )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in the wild, the wolf-dog White Fang quickly learns the law of nature: eat or be eaten. Captured by Indians, bullied by another dog, and then turned into a killer, he becomes vicious and fiercely independent. Rarely has the raw realism of life on the edge of civilisation been so vividly captured. But in this classic animal novel, Jack London also has other points to make, that animals and human beings alike are deeply affected by the way they are treated."

Excerpts from Miller's 'The Crucible' (performed by the same cast) interwoven with this dramatization highlight fundamental themes in each. Miller had written 'The Crucible' as a reaction to the harm inflicted by HUAC earlier in the decade, saying that until that time he had not understood the "inexplicable darkness" that prevented people from seeing evil and denouncing it
