The India Trip( Visual )

3 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pondicherry, an ancient city near the Southern tip of India, was for several centuries an outpost of France. Now the French influence has faded but another, stranger, colony is growing on its outskirts--Auroville, a community of Europeans and North Americans who have come to live the contemplative life. They are devotees of Sri Aurobindo, a Bengali poet and mystic, and their guru is a ninety-four-year-old woman from France. This spiritual mecca is described in the film by Albert Jordan, a professor from Concordia University, Montréal, who, in 1971, with his family, spent a year there
Propaedeia prophetica, or, The use and design of the Old Testament by William Rowe Lyall( )

3 editions published in 1885 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Station 10( Visual )

4 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This feature documentary is a factual account of the life of policemen at one station in Montreal, drawn from 60 days and nights of on-the-spot filming in the early 1970s. It is a view of life in the inner city that usually only the policeman has reason to encounter. There are ugly incidents here, but there is also reassurance that people in trouble do have help at hand."
People of the Seal, Part 2 : Eskimo Winter( Visual )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2021 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second of two coproductions by the British Broadcasting Corporation and the National Film Board of Canada, People of the Seal, Part 2: Eskimo Winter is compiled from some of the most vivid footage ever filmed of the life of the Netsilik Inuit in the Pelly Bay region of the Canadian Arctic. Together, the two films provide insight and understanding of a culture now almost vanished, as they show the incredible resourcefulness of the Netsilik (People of the Seal) who have adapted to one of the world's harshest environments. Part 2: Eskimo Winter shows how Inuit families gather in communities on the sea ice to harpoon seal as they come up through breating holes in the ice. Also seen is the mid-winter season, a time of intense socializing in the communal igloo, with games, contests and ceremonial activities

3 editions published between 1994 and 2021 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of two coproductions by the British Broadcasting Corporation and the National Film Board of Canada, People of the Seal, Part 1: Eskimo Summer is compiled from some of the most vivid footage ever filmed of the life of the Netsilik Inuit in the Pelly Bay region of the Canadian Arctic. Together, the two films provide insight and understanding of a culture now almost vanished, as they show the incredible resourcefulness of the Netsilik (People of the Seal) who have adapted to one of the world's harshest environments. Part 1: Eskimo Summer shows how Inuit families prepare for winter by hunting seal, birds and caribou and by fishing for Arctic Char during the extended hours of daylight
Ça flambe à Blaze Creek( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Appel à la prudence, ce film montre les ravages que le feu cause chaque année à la forêt canadienne malgré un ensemble de mesures préventives sans cesse en application. Par sa négligence, l'homme ne serait-il pas en partie responsable des feux de forêt? Tout en exposant les moyens modernes de les combattre, ce beau document tente d'éveiller la conscience individuelle à cette question
Small Smoke at Blaze Creek( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forest fire in mountainous British Columbia, as experienced by the men who must try to quench it from the air and at close quarters on the ground. Over half of fire outbreaks occur through carelessness, and this film affords a close, vivid view of the result: a whole mountainside turned into a searing, crackling holocaust until nothing remains but gray, desolate waste--mute reproach to all who travel or work in the forests
