Back to school. The ongoing struggle to educate the world's children( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2003, the Wide Angle program Time for School profiled children in seven countries--Afghanistan, Benin, Brazil, India, Japan, Kenya, and Romania--as they started their first year of school, often in the face of great adversity. Three years later this Wide Angle episode returns to visit each child, updating the progress of their educational and personal development. The similarities and contrasts that emerge among the lives of these young people provide rich insight into the disparities of opportunity around the globe--underscoring the hard fact that more than 100 million children worldwide are growing up without schooling ... Additionally, anchor Daljit Dhaliwal discusses the state of global education with former National Economic Council director Gene Sperling"--Container

"Without schooling, a child has no future. Without an educated population, a nation has no future. These two parts of an ongoing Wide Angle series ... examine gaps and voids in educational opportunities that, tragically, keep many developing countries from advancing. Following a group of children from around the world as they progress through life -- and, on an uneven basis, through school -- the series gets to the heart of this colossal yet not intractable socioeconomic problem."--Container

Suicide bombers : inside the minds of failed martyrs( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of powerful and revealing interviews from inside Israeli prisons, this Wide Angle documentary examines the motives of Palestinian suicide bombers. A recruiter, a bomb builder, and three failed suicide bombers captured by Israeli security forces speak openly of their training, motivation, operational methodology, and profound belief in the idea of entering paradise as a shahid - a martyr for Islam. They discuss their hatred of Jews and Israel, their determination to die, and the personal motivations that have influenced them - including a failed love, a sense of personal revenge, the frustration of living under the Israeli occupation, and envy for the prosperous Israeli lifestyle. In addition, Sari Nusseibeh, president of Al-Quds University, speaks with anchor Mishal Husain."--Back cover

Looks like Laury, sounds like Laury( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What would you do if you started to disappear? At the age of 45, Laury Sacks, an ebullient actress and the doting mother of two small children, had a reputation as the quickest wit in the room. At the age of 46, she began forgetting words. Soon she could barely speak. When a friend suggested making a film to capture her mysterious new life, Laury jumped at the idea. This is the profoundly personal portrait of a woman in the prime of life who invites us to witness her struggle to make sense of the unthinkable. As she says straight to the camera the first day of filming: "What do I hope for? I hope for--the truth!" For one year Laury's friends Pam and Connie filmed what turned out to be her long, inexorable descent to frontotemporal dementia, a little-understood disease that strikes people in the prime of life. Laury was always a storyteller and she wanted to tell her last story herself. "Looks Like Laury Sounds Like Laury" is the first experiential documentary about living with FTD, a fast-moving always fatal disease for which there is no cure or treatment. This is Laury's story
