Widow of the revolution : the Anna Larina story by Rosemarie Reed( Visual )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anna Larina was the young bride of Nikolai Bukharin, one of the top ten Bolsheviks in the early years of the Russian Revolution. This documentary is based on her memorable autobiography, This I Cannot Forget, which she wrote late in life, after being imprisoned for almost twenty years in the Russian Gulag. Larina s life story is recounted by her, interwoven with extraordinary archival film and interviews. Larina had grown up amidst the dazzling personalities in Revolutionary circles and recalls Lenin, Stalin and others. She recounts her love affair and marriage with Bukharin, which ended with his arrest in 1937, during Stalin s Great Terror. Shortly thereafter, she was arrested, sent to Astrakhan Prison and later to the Siberian gulag camps where she spent twenty years. She followed Stalin's notorious show trials as closely as she could; these crushed the Party s ideals and hopes of reform. Bukharin was executed after the trials. Decades later in 1992, when Stalin s personal archives were opened, Bukharin's books, philosophical treatises, poetry and a novel were discovered. One of these, How It All Began, was published around the world. Upon Stalin's death in 1956, Larina was released from the camps. Due to Larina's efforts, Bukharin was rehabilitated in 1992 by the Russian government when Gorbachev felt the need to show that there had been an alternative to the Stalinist legacy. The Russian scholar, Stephen F. Cohen, who narrates this documentary, became a close friend of this exceptionally courageous woman

The path to nuclear fission by Rosemarie Reed( Visual )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This absorbing film details the story of a brilliant Jewish woman, Lise Meitner, who made scientific history when she and her collaborator, Otto Hahn, discovered nuclear fission in 1938. Yet her forced emigration from Nazi Germany meant that Otto Hahn would never credit her contribution when he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1944. Lise Meitner, a shy young physics student from Vienna, and the worldly Otto Hahn, a chemist, became close friends and colleagues in 1907. At the time, the nature of atoms and elements was still poorly understood. Their collaboration benefited from their separate disciplines. Meitner and Hahn s first period of joint research culminated in their discovery of the "missing" radioactive element, protactinium, in 1918. Meitner was a pioneer in the field that became known as nuclear physics. She published the first theoretical interpretation of the fission process, calculated the enormous energy released and coined the name "fission" which was instantly accepted by the physics community. Lise Meitner became prominent within a circle of colleagues that included Einstein, Max Planck, and Niels Bohr. Although their names became household words, few people know of her contributions
Out from the shadows by Rosemarie Reed( Visual )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating biography relates the life and times of Irène Joliot-Curie, the eldest daughter of Marie and Pierre Curie. Although less well known than her parents, Irene and her husband, Frédéric, made a contribution to nuclear physics that was of equally ground-breaking significance. And like her parents, they were awarded a Nobel Prize. In 1934, Irène and her husband announced in a report to the French Academy of Sciences that they had created a radioactive atom which did not exist in nature. The bombardment of a simple sheet of aluminum with alpha rays had produced a phosphorus isotope which disintegrated just like natural radioactive elements. Until then radioactivity had been a phenomenon which scientists could not influence or manipulate, but which they were able to observe in certain heavy nuclei. The discovery of the Joliot-Curies marked the beginning of a new era in the relationship of man towards matter: it had become possible to artificially create new atoms and new sources of radioactive radiation. The discovery of artificial radioactivity was also an important step towards the discovery of nuclear fission, made in 1938, and the development of the atomic bomb, completed in 1944. The film makes use of the Curie family photos and home movies, as well as interviews, stock footage, and dramatizations
