Ancient India( Visual )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The antecedents of modern Indian culture can be traced back to the Harappan civilization, which flourished between 2300 and 1500 BC in what are now Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Aryan tribes from the Russian steppes invaded the subcontinent in 1000 BC, bringing their language and culture. The resulting synthesis between the Aryan and Indian civilizations brought forth a unique society that included a caste system, which soon became entrenched. This program examines the religious tension between Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam, and the historical events that shaped the great Indian civilizations, from the Mauryan Empire through the Mogul Empire. Maps and scholars provide insight into a culture that remains vibrant and diverse today
Aztecs : exposition of a culture( Visual )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Commentary by scholars, maps, and contemporary accounts provide an overview of the events that both shaped and destroyed an empire
Ancient Rome by Andrew Schlessinger( Visual )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At its zenith, the Roman Empire included North Africa, Spain, France, and Britain. The wealth that these conquests generated allowed Roman citizens to live in a sumptuous world of beautifully decorated homes and opulent cities. In this program, scholars discuss Roman unification of Europe, Roman culture and institutions, and the family structure. The role of the army as a major force in Roman society and politics, along with its military structure and tactics, are discussed. The Christianization of Rome and the enduring legacy of Roman Law and institutions in Western government today are also analyzed. 3-D re-creations of the Coliseum and Pompeii allow students to see Rome as it was before the empire collapsed

For almost 3,000 years, the pharaohs ruled a civilization that was arguably the grandest of the ancient world.

The Mayans( Visual )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most advanced of the pre-Hispanic peoples of Central America, the Mayans rose to great prominence, only to suddenly decline around the year AD 900. In this program, cultural historian Iain Grain delves into Mayan history, investigating topics such as the Mayans' mastery of mathematics, their extremely hierarchical society, their use of human sacrifice to induce rain, and Mayan art. 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
The Celts( Visual )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nearly 3,000 years ago, those who first mastered iron became the first masters of Europe: the Celts. This program documents the Hallstatt and La Tene Celts, separating them from myth and legend. Historians and scholars discuss the history, values, and lifestyle of this warrior society, exploring topics that include the roles of the druids, bards, and seers; the political hierarchy in Celtic society; and human sacrifice. Battle reenactments are also featured, contrasting the methods of warfare preferred by the Celts to their Roman adversaries. The Celtic influence on the ethnic languages of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and Britanny is also documented
Geoffrey Chaucer : the Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer( Visual )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 293 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. 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

Othello : a critical guide by William Shakespeare( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 278 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 Iago, 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.

Julius Caesar : a critical guide by William Shakespeare( Visual )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work-the only Shakespeare tragedy considered to have its roots in the classics-is a study in contradiction. Though it is about the character of Brutus, it has Caesar as its dominant figure. This and other complexities and themes of the drama are investigated through the performance of key scenes by noted Shakespearean experts from the Shakespeare Centre and the Shakespeare Institute, Stratford-upon Avon. Themes and topics include politics and the corruption of power; the play as drama, history, and art; the persona of Brutus as noble but self-deluded; Cassius as an opportunistic prime mover; the rhetorical skills of Brutus and Antony as pivotal to the action; and Shakespeare's use of dramatic effect in key scenes, such as the appearance of Caesar's ghost
The Modern monarchs( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 276 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 Napoleonic wars by Liliane Funcken( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when revolutionary France was assailed from all sides, there emerged a young military officer whose genius and ambition assured him of great fame-and notoriety. In this program, Dr. David Chandler-world-renowned authority on the Emperor Napoleon and author of The Campaigns of Napoleon-provides full commentary on the strategies and tactics of the Napoleonic Wars. Large-scale reenactments bring to life the military campaigns that so strongly influenced a century of European history. Maps, hundreds of images and paintings, and analyses of the weapons used by the opposing armies also contribute to this thorough examination of the Napoleonic era
The Battle of Quebec( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 276 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
The Stuarts( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 276 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
