Aztec myth prophesied that a great city would one day stand on the site where an eagle, perched on a cactus with a serpent in its mouth, was found. Today, Mexico City stands on this mythical site. Although the Aztec Empire fell on April 28, 1521, when Hernando Cortes and his army defeated Montezuma, traces of the thousand-year-old pre-Columbian empire still survive and influence world culture. This program explores Aztec culture and history, from the role of human sacrifice in the Aztec religion to their agricultural advances.

Many examples of Mayan architecture are provided as well, plus a computer re-creation of the temple at Chichen Itza. Although there are still more than two million native Mayans living in Central America, the exact origins of their ancestors and the fate of the ancient Mayan cities remain mysteries

Geoffrey Chaucer : the Canterbury tales( Visual )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in the 14th century, The Canterbury Tales has stood the test of time as a landmark in the development of English literature. This innovative "frame story" owes its classic standing and impact to the diversity both of the narrators and of the styles of tales they tell. In this program, expert commentators Dr. Christiania Whitehead and Dr. Peter Mack, both of the University of Warwick, discuss the tradition of 14th-century poetry, the General Prologue, Chaucer's social grouping of the pilgrims and the themes they explore, and the poem as a reflection of Medieval English society. Dramatic reenactments of the pilgrims on horseback and numerous period images help bring the tales to life

The Stuarts( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The death of Queen Elizabeth foreshadowed a power struggle between parliament and the monarchy. This program begins with the crowning of James I-whose policies made the confrontation inevitable-and documents five generations of tumultuous Stuart governance. Sifting through the complex mixture of financial crisis and mounting religious factionalism that characterized Jacobean England, the program describes the eruption of the Civil War, the execution of Charles I, the heavy-handed authority of Cromwell, and the legacy of the prolonged conflict: an enthusiastic return to monarchy and a general distaste among the English for political extremism
The Modern monarchs( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How has the importance of English royalty evolved over the past two centuries? This program examines the passage of the monarchy into figurehead status, tracing the line of descent from Queen Victoria to the current ruling family. Recounting Victoria's bereaved isolation and her son's rejection of her standards of propriety, the program reflects on English rule through two world wars, the Princess Diana tragedy, and the media circus that is now a feature of royal life. The episode concludes with an analysis of the crown's vague national purpose-ultimately recognizing an age-old interdependence between the monarchy and its subjects
The Battle of Quebec( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the North American colonies of France and Great Britain continued to spread, friction and outright violence between New France and New England became inevitable. Placing the French and Indian War in its larger political context, this program traces the war's progress to the Battle of Quebec. In a bold stroke, the British deployed on the Plains of Abraham under cover of darkness-and a mere fifteen minutes of combat spelled the beginning of the end of 150 years of French colonial rule. (31 minutes)
Othello : a critical guide by William Shakespeare( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Compelling dramatizations of key scenes from Shakespeare's tragedy are analyzed by two noted Shakespearean experts-Stanley Wells and Russell Jackson of the Shakespeare Institute, Stratford-upon-Avon. Themes and topics include the motives of Lago, and whether his evil is as complete as most commentators suggest; Victorian objections to the interracial relationship between Othello and Desdemona; evidence of racism within Shakespeare's characterization of Othello; the role of opposing forces (good and evil) in relationships and events; Desdemona as victim or manipulative conniver, responsible for her own downfall; Othello as victim, ruled by emotion rather than logic; the conflict between Othello's identity as a Christian commander of the Venetian force and as a social and racial outsider; and the use of women as characters vital to plot development
The Tudors by John Malam( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a French princess and Welsh courtier as its progenitors, the Tudor dynasty continued England's tradition of rule shaped by outside influence. This program examines the saga set in motion by Owen Tudor and Catherine of Valois, illustrating the events that led to the coronation of Henry Tudor and shedding light on the entire succession of Tudor monarchs. With the murderous power-grab of Richard III as counterpoint, the program explores the bloody reigns of Henry VIII and Mary I, and shows how their successor, Elizabeth I, reversed the trend-becoming synonymous with England's domestic tranquility and supremacy on the world stage
