Aztecs : exposition of a culture( Visual )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 409 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

"Sinatra: all or nothing at all is an up-close and personal examination of the life, music and career of the legendary entertainer. Told in his own words from hours of archived interviews, along with commentary from those closest to him, the documentary weaves the music and images from Sinatra's life together with rarely seen footage of Sinatra's famous 1971 'Retirement' Concert in Los Angeles. The film's narrative is shaped by Sinatra's song choices for that concert, which Alex Gibney interprets as the singer's personal guide through his own life"--Container
The Battle of Quebec( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 238 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 Modern monarchs( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 237 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 War poets( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The futility and madness of the First World War was the spur for some of the most moving poetry ever written, but the young men who brought the voice of reason to the Great War were themselves part of a long tradition of war poetry. This program traces the development of the art of war poetry from Anglo-Saxon times to the early 20th century and the works of Brooke, Owen, and Sassoon. Using extensive feature film footage as well as contemporary images, the program brings a new vitality to the checkered tales of heroism, cowardice, luck, valor, and misery which together form the experiences of war over the centuries. Jon Stallworthy of Oxford University, one of the world's foremost authorities on war poetry, analyzes the works
The Tudors( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 236 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
The Napoleonic wars( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 236 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 Stuarts( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 236 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
Peter the Great( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emperor of All the Russias, Peter the Great launched the transformation of his nation from a medieval society into a Western-style European power. Expert analysis by Professor Lindsay Hughes, of London University's School of Slavonic and Eastern Studies, and historian Dr. David Moon-plus lush dramatizations of Peter as a child and an adult-emphasizes his sweeping reforms in the areas of government, military science, industry, commerce, education, culture, and even religion. From Peter's fascination with all things Western, to his convoluted ascension to the throne, to his victory in the Great Northern War, this program neatly sums up the fascinating life of one of European history's most dynamic figures
The Spanish armada( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outwitted and outmaneuvered by Lord Howard of Effingham and Sir Francis Drake and thwarted by the weather as well, the Duke of Medina Sidonia's once-mighty Armada returned to Spain in defeat, signaling the end of Spanish naval supremacy. This program analyzes the political and military aspects of Philip II's attempted invasion of England through expert commentary, battle maps, and reenactments involving the personalities and the ships that made this conflict a watershed in European history
Charlotte Bronte : Jane Eyre( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the character Jane, orphan and governess, Charlotte Bronte introduced a style of heroine that markedly departed from the previous norm in Victorian literature. In this program, Dr. Tom Winnifrith-Bronte expert and author of The Brontes-and Dr. Sally Poulson of the University of Warwick discuss a variety of topics, including whether Jane Eyre is feminist literature, the theme of the Gothic novel, the Victorian education system, and 19th-century social structure. In addition, they compare and contrast the author with her shy and intense heroine to determine how much of the novel is autobiographical
Othello by William Shakespeare( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 235 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.

The Hanoverians( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the 18th century dawned, foreigners continued to dominate the English royal line. This program profiles the four Kings George and William IV, and their significance in the German House of Hanover. Beginning with the rancorous relationship between George I and II, the program explores the origin of the position of Prime Minister, the courtly rivalry between George II and his son Frederick-expressed largely through opera sponsorship-and the American Rebellion. The personally disastrous reigns of George III and IV, both of whom suffered humiliation and insanity while presiding over a vast colonial empire, are explained in detail
The Spanish conquest of Mexico( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Hernan Cortes hardly considered himself the reincarnation of Quetzalcoatl, the Aztecs did-and his conquest of Mesoamerica utterly destroyed their world, exactly as prophesied. In this program, Spanish historian and Oxford University professor Sir John Elliott and cultural historian Dr. Elizabeth Baquedano survey political, cultural, and religious aspects of Aztec civilization; analyze Cortes' military campaign in detail; and discuss Spanish influences on Mexican culture. Artwork, artifacts, 3-D models, and excerpts from the writings of Bernal Diaz add depth to this penetrating study of Spanish opportunism in the New World
