As told by four veterans of this unique organization, The Civilian Conservation Corps, from the PBS American Experience collection, takes us back to this most ambitious undertaking, when in military-like fashion for a
Farewell, good brothers( Visual )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An offbeat, provacative documentary film about a small collection of people who, back in the 1950's, claimed to have been contacted by friendly visitors from the planet Venus. In a vain attempt to establish a new global religion and to bring about world peace, these so-called 'Contactees' pioneered much of the mythology about Flying Saucers, UFO's and Alien visitations. Thirty-five years later, against all odds, they're still trying to make converts."--Container

World War Three( Visual )

2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in German and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War Three is a fake historical documentary which imagines a worst-case scenario of how the Cold War might have ended had history taken a different course. Employing a massive amount of archival imagery from military training films from both East and West, fake news reports, fake interviews, public statements by real historical figures (Bush, Thatcher, Kohl, etc.) and a wide variety of other original and archival material, it is a film unlike any other, both in its making and in its use of true pictures to illustrate an alternative vision of the past. Presented as if it where actually true and involving the actual political leaders of the time, World War Three makes real the ultimate horror of the Cold War, blurring the lines between fact and fiction. Two and a half years in the making, this international co-production was developed in consultation with military advisors from both NATO and the former Soviet Union. It is a realistic exploration of what might have been as it was imagined by those who were trained to fight World War Three.--Publisher description
