An unsuitable job for a woman ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cordelia Gray is a young, aspiring private detective learning the ropes from her mentor, disgraced ex-policeman Bernie Pryde. But when Pryde's sudden suicide leaves Cordelia the sole proprietor of his ramshackle agency, she is forced to continue her education on the job with only Mrs. Sparshott, the agency's longtime secretary and Cordelia's new assistant on her team. Sacrifice: A prominent scientist hires Cordelia to investigate why his son suddenly gave up a life of privilege for one of passion, only to kill himself weeks later. A last embrace: A jilted wife needs a female detective to lure her philandering husband and reveal his misdeeds, but Cordelia finds herself trapped when she begins to fall in love. Living on risk: Cordelia accepts what she thinks is a routine surveillance job, only to discover she may have been hired to help commit a crime, not to prevent one. Playing God: Superintendent Fergussen hires Cordelia to investigate his daughter's boyfriend, but is the evidence Cordelia turns over really all that the Superintendent was after?
Urban explorers dealing with the unfamiliar ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The modern city is a complex maze of choices and decisions. This program describes the brain's empirical approach to finding sense amid confusion. Subconscious methods of information gathering, including visual scanning to find goods in a supermarket and direction finding while traversing an urban environment, are analyzed. In addition, the natural human ability to learn by trial and error is observed, emphasizing the concept of "natural mapping" and the importance of feedback
Virtual friends living in cyberspace ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Relationships in the modern megalopolis: interpersonal or impersonal? This program investigates the new interactive society model in which physical neighborhoods connected by proximity have been displaced by virtual neighborhoods linked by technology. Topics discussed include the intimate anonymity of the Internet; the use of emoticons in e-mail; the growing importance of telecommunications; the Pavlovian response to a ringing telephone; and the relationship category defined as "familiar strangers."
Keeping up appearances culture of conformity ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Whether following stated procedures or complying with implicit rules of conduct, modern humans willingly modify their behavior dozens of times each day. In this program, the conformity necessary for mass interactions and the flexibility required to learn and use the behaviors of conformity are investigated. In addition to conventions such as air travel protocol and museum manners, instances of the subversion and even outright abuse of conformity are examined
Living on the edge line between scary and fun ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program redefines fear stimuli and explores the fine line between fright and excitement. The rapid evolutionary modification of supposedly hard-wired responses to heights, enclosed spaces, and darkness by the demands of modern living is described, along with the new terrors that have taken their place. But parallel to the desire for safety is the desire for excitement. The risks people willingly take, such as driving recklessly fast, to assert their right to control their own lives and to attain an adrenaline high are also examined
Henry VI ( Visual )

Space invaders strategies for life in a crowd ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this program, the need for personal space is explored through the avoidance behaviors people employ to maintain a perceived distance from others, such as falling into a "middle-distance stare" in a crowded subway; the use of a proxy, like a jacket on a barstool, to reserve a place; the attitudes of drivers towards other cars on the road, which can lead to road rage; and the unconscious cooperation displayed in sharing public places. The phenomenon of crowd identity, in which the rules of personal space are willingly suspended, is also examined
Werner Herzog by Werner Herzog ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in German and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Little Dieter needs to fly: Growing up in post-WWII Germany, all Dieter Dengler, the son of a Nazi slain during the war, dreamed about was becoming a pilot. At age 18 he emigrated to the United States and worked odd jobs until he was accepted into the Navy and began pilot training. He was sent to Vietnam around 1966 and on his first mission was shot down and taken prisoner. There, the Vietcong tortured him until Dengler engineered a hair-raising escape and eventually returned to the U.S. His story is recounted here via interviews with Dengler, archival footage and new footage seamlessly spliced together

Life at speed picking up the pace ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why does life in a modern city move so fast, how have people adapted to this frantic pace, and what are the pluses and minuses of adaptation? This program studies the high-speed lifestyle of city dwellers, focusing on issues such as the hormonal response to continual sensory stimulation and the automatic filtering mechanism that protects against sensory overload. Addiction to the unavoidable metabolic rush of urban living is also explored, as well as the stress that occurs when the need for speed is thwarted
