7611ADVENTURE, THE (1956-1960)ADVENTURE, THE (1956-1960)2000color112 minvhs (Jazz: A Film by Ken Burns series, Part 9) In the late 1950s America's postwar prosperity continues but beneath the surface run currents of change. Families are moving to the suburbs, watching television has become the national pastime and baby boomers have begun coming of age. For jazz, it is also a period of transition when old stars like Billie Holiday and Lester Young will burn out while young talents arise to take the music in new directions.
  • Jazz still has its two guiding lights. In 1956, the first year Elvis tops the charts, Duke Ellington recaptures the nation's ear with a performance at the Newport Jazz Festival that becomes his best-selling record ever. The next year, Louis Armstrong makes headlines when he condemns the government's failure to stand up to racism in Little Rock, Arkansas, risking his career while musicians who dismissed him as an Uncle Tom remain silent.
  • Meanwhile, new virtuosos emerge to push the limits of bebop: saxophone colossus Sonny Rollins; jazz diva Sarah Vaughan; and the drummer Art Blakey, whose Jazz Messengers will become a proving ground for young musicians over the next forty years. But the leading light of the era is Miles Davis--a catalyst constantly forming new groups to showcase different facets of his stark, introspective sound; a popularizer whose lush recordings with arranger Gil Evans expand the jazz audience; and a cultural icon whose tough-guy charisma comes to define what's hip.
  • As the turbulent Sixties arrive, however, two saxophonists take jazz into uncharted terrain. John Coltrane explodes the pop tune "My Favorite Things" into a kaleidoscope of freewheeling sound, while Ornette Coleman challenges all conventions with a sound he calls "free jazz." Once again, the music seems headed for new adventures, but now, for the first time, even musicians are starting to ask, Is it still jazz?

Kharkov, Amvrosi Buchma) Perhaps the avant-garde masterpiece of the renowned Ukrainian director, Alexander Dovzhenko, Arsenal employs the most complex montage style of any of the Soviet masters in this treatment of events from the Ukrainian civil war. Based on an actual incident from 1918, the story concerns a group of Bolsheviks who battle against counter-revolutionary nationalist troops in Kiev. The Bolsheviks put up an Alamo-like defense inside the city's "Arsenal" munitions plant. Outnumbered by the nationalist troops, the defenders are overrun and defeated in the climactic battle, but their revolutionary spirit prevails. Dovzhenko presents harsh, realistic scenes of Czarist brutality and war's destruction, but his juxtapositions of the Russian workers and peasants are both impressionistic and symbolic.

    6848ART OF BUSTER KEATON, THE (VOL. I)*ART OF BUSTER KEATON, THE (VOL. I)*1995b & w345 minlaserdisc Buster Keaton's films enjoyed only moderate commercial success at the time of their release; it is with the passage of time that their subtle riches have been fully appreciated. Keaton's public signature was his stony face, which seemed never to betray his feelings. But this impassivity was belied by his body, a dynamo of movement and acrobatic grace that carried Buster through many a hostile situation. The jokes were never at someone elses experience; they all imperiled him as he sought love, the promise of wealth or the comfort of his family. Contains The Saphead (1920) (With Buster Keaton, William H. Crane, Carol Holloway, Edward Connelly, Irving Cummings, Beulah Booker) Bertie Van Alstyne is the spoiled and not-so-bright son of a powerful Wall Street mogul. Unable to escape the wealth and comfort that are thrust upon him, he searches for his own individuality in a series of misadventures that range from the speakeasies of New York to the matrimonial altar, and even on to the vaulted floor of the Stock Exchange (77 min). The High Sign (1921) (With Buster Keaton and Al St. John) Buster is unwittingly involved in a radical secret society known as the "Blinking Buzzards," where he stumbles from assassin to bodyguard in a romantic adventure that climaxes in a romp through a booby-trapped mansion (21 min). One Week (1920) (With Buster Keaton and Sybil Seeley) A parable of one couple's unflagging determination to build a do-it-yourself prefabricated honeymoon cottage, where dreams of placid domesticity are systematically satirized and ultimately demolished in the space of seven exasperating days (19 min). The Goat (1921) (With Buster Keaton and Virginia Fox) Rubbernecking through the bars of a jailhouse window, Buster's implacable face is accidentally photographed in place of the nefarious gunslinger Dead-Eye Dan, who makes his getaway in the confusion. Soon, the photograph is plastered across the front pages and on "Wanted" posters all over town, and Buster is embroiled in a chase for his life (23 min). Three Ages (1923) (With Buster Keaton, Wallace Beery, Margaret Leahy, Joe Roberts) This parody of D. W. Griffith's Intolerance follows Buster's hard-luck romantic misadventure throughout world history: from the dawn of man in the Stone Age, through the gladiatorial arenas of Ancient Rome to the streets of the American Jazz Era (63 min). My Wife's Relations (1922) (With Buster Keaton and Kate Price) A biting comedy of domestic turmoil that seems to reflect some of the tensions between Keaton and the Talmadges, his real life in-laws at the time (Natalie, his wife, and her sisters Norma and Constance, the matriarchal Hollywood clan of the day) (24 min). Our Hospitality (1923) (With Buster Keaton, Natalie Talmadge, Joe Roberts, Joseph Keaton) Keaton stars as a New York man who returns to his Southern ante-bellum home to find himself embroiled in a long-standing feud between his family and that of the woman he loves (74 min). Sherlock Jr. (1924) (With Buster Keaton Kathryn McGuire, Joseph Keaton, Ward Crane) Keaton reached his technical and artistic pinnacle with this brilliant and hilarious story of a hapless motion picture projectionist who walks right into the screen and takes part in the imaginary detective drama unfolding (44 min).

Griffith's attitude toward the Klu Klux Klan has kept this film a center of controversy for over eighty years, yet few people today have ever seen a complete showing. It set the standard for film spectacle and absorbing historical melodrama.

As usual, the general public was/is a lot smarter than the studio. Blade Runner is not so much a science-fiction film as it is a classic 1940s film noir in which Bogart and Bacall would not be uncomfortable.

When Jernigan was convicted no one, including Jernigan, had foreseen that he would be reborn on the Internet as the "visible man": the first completely digitized human being, a third millennium prototype of human anatomy. This worldwide, digitally distributed Visible Human Project is the result of a unique interaction between justice and science, between family destiny and American career planning, and between the helplessness of the individual and the power of scientific ambition.
    7069Blue EyedBLUE EYED1995color93 minvhs Jane Elliot's "blue eyed/brown eyed" exercise is recognized as a groundbreaking experiment in the sociology of racism and anti-racism training. This video is the summation of 28 years of experience in schools, universities and corporations; it marks a significant advance over previous films, Eye of the Storm and A Class Divided. A diverse group of 40 public employees from the Midwest--blacks, Hispanics, whites, women and men--are subjected to Elliott's withering regime. Jane Elliott treats them according to negative traits that are commonly assigned to people of color, women, lesbians and gay men, people with disabilities, and other non-dominant members of society. She later describes, with great emotion, how her family has been harassed and ostracized as a result of her efforts to educate white people about racism. (A study guide is available upon request)

The approach was simple: show the story everyone wants to see, forget the facts, and immerse the fiction in a heavy, colorful documentary atmosphere to make it appear factual, real, and, most importantly, significant. Thematically, it deals with such various subjects as displaced sexuality, kinship, alienation, and dehumanization.

    7082Brain The (AMB)BRAIN, THE (AMB)1995color25 minvhs (Body Atlas, The series, Part 13) Compared to the animal world, the brain is our best-developed organ. Humans have a lower brain that controls our reflexes, including breathing, without our thinking about it. But the higher parts of the brain have allowed us to think, calculate and aspire. This is the job of the gray matter (or cortex). Even a quick look shows the brain is split into two halves. Although they look the same, each side thinks differently. One hemisphere specializes in tasks that require coordination and ability to place things correctly; the other is better at performing abstract tasks such as math. These discoveries may go some way to explaining the greatest of human puzzles; why are we all so different? (Study guide available upon request)

First, the air is moistened in the nose to filter out pollutants. It is passed down to the lungs, through air passages that split over and over again, ending up in 700 million tiny air sacs. Here, oxygen passes into the blood, while the waste product, carbon dioxide moves from the blood into the lungs, to be breathed out. (A study guide is available upon request)

Godard, almost single-handedly, reinvents film in order to liberate it. The spontaneity, the jump-cuts force the audience into a different world than they expect.

She, in turn, rats on him to the police when her ardour for him dries up. Both are as totally oblivious to conventional morality as Godard is to conventional film-making.

Brooks, with William Hurt, Albert Brooks, Holly Hunter) Holly Hunter plays a network news producer who, much to her chagrin, finds herself falling for pretty-boy anchorman William Hurt. He is all glamour without substance and represents a hated shift from hard news toward packaged "infotainment," which Hunter despises. Completing the triangle is Albert Brooks, who provides contrast as the gifted reporter with almost no presence on camera. He carries the torch for Hunter; she sees merely a friend. Shows remarkable insight into the people who make television. [Letterboxed] (Restricted to use on University of Washington campuses only)

  • (Written and directed by Woody Allen; with Mia Farrow, Jeff Daniels, Danny Aiello, Van Johnson, Alexander H. Cohen) The 13th movie that Woody Allen directed, this comedy has a small, rapt quality; he wrote it for Mia Farrow. The time is 1935; and she is Cecilia, who lives in a small town in New Jersey and can't hold a job for long because her thoughts wander away to the glamorous worlds she sees on the screen at the Jewel Theater. This is the first Woody Allen movie in which a whole batch of actors really interact and spark each other. Jeff Daniels plays a dashing young screen character who bounds down from the black-and-white image and into color, and takes Cecilia out of the theatre with him; he's also the ambitious actor who arrives in town to try to persudade the character to go back up on the screen where he belongs.

    380BUCK STOPS IN BRAZIL, THEBUCK STOPS IN BRAZIL, THE1982color30 minvhs (Enterprise series) At the close of 1982 the worldwide debt approached a staggering $700 billion. Brazil, with loans totaling $87 billion, leads a list of developing and Eastern-bloc countries that owe governments and financial institutions so much money that payment of just the interest seems unlikely. Some economists believe the situation is desperate, that the world financial system is teetering on the brink of disaster. Other financial experts are not so pessimistic. In any case, Brazil's woes are closely tied to the worldwide economic situation; indeed, Brazil is a classic case study of how actions in one area of the world can greatly affect nations elsewhere.

Some reactions to "burnout" are physical or emotional illness, giving up on life altogether, turning to alcohol or dropping out of society. Several suggestions are made to avoid or overcome this letdown.

The only problem was that the cane toads didn't do their job. In fact what they did best was multiply. From the original 102 toads the species has virtually taken over the northern half of Australia. There are, of course, the scientific studies of their mating habits (frequent and long-lasting), defense systems (poison that can kill a predator), and their eating habits (almost anything). Some hate them; some love them; some dress them up in doll clothes; some run over them on the highways. This may be the one documentary that could have been produced by Monty Python.

The second journey--a metaphysical one--affords a glimpse at the real reasons why "civilized" people wish to encounter the "primitive". Observes that shifting terminus of civilization, where modern mass-culture grates and pushes against those original, essential aspects of humanity; and where much of what passes for "values" in western culture, is exposed, in stark relief, as banal and fake. "There is nothing so strange in a strange land, as the stranger who comes to visit it."

With stunning art and dramatic readings from Catherine the Great's diaries, this first program in the series investigates a self-professed "glutton for beauty," who feasted daily on Rembrandts, Rubenses and Brueghels. Like her predecessor, Peter the Great who built St. Petersburg with the best Europe had to offer, Catherine ruled Russia with an insatiable appetite for Western culture. She cunningly purchased massive art collections from Europe's monarchs, then created The Hermitage Museum in the Winter Palace (1754-1762) to house her treasures. In less than 40 years, she acquired more masterpieces than the Louvre had amassed in four centuries. From the construction of a dazzling capital city to the shocking palace murder of Czar Peter II, Part One of the series illuminates the world of opulence and intrigue only a czar could comprehend.

The expulsion of the Moors from the Kingdom of Granada in 1492 is still viewed as a gaping wound in the world of Islam. The religious celebrations and re-enactments of that defeat are particularly hurtful to Muslims. The other major empires' greatness and subsequent decline explain many differences in Muslim thinking today. The Ottomans were confronted by Europe and Christianity, accounting for the "western" approach of many Turkish Muslims. The Mughals achieved a synthesis with Hinduism that produced such beauty as the Taj Mahal. The Saffavid dynasty was characterized by the shi'a/sunni split which is still acted out in Southern Iran in the Taziya pageants. (Donated by the Department of Anthropology)

The grassbeds harbored spawning fish and soft-shelled crabs, a nursery ground, a hiding place.

And what were the dying grasses trying to tell us about the fate of the Chesapeake Bay, the nation's richest estuary? As this production tries to find the answers to these and other questions, it reminds everyone why it is so important to restore the Chesapeake and the way of life that once flourished in all its small towns and backwaters.

    7061Chinatown*CHINATOWN*1974color131 minlaserdisc (Directed by Roman Polanski; with Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston) Chinatown at first appeared to be a classy little thriller. What we have since discovered is that, although it was filmed in the '70s, in color and CinemaScope, and most of it in the broad daylight of Southern California, it is really a 1940s film noir homage. It does not "depend on nostalgia or camp for its effect, but works because of the enduring strength of the genre itself. In some respects, this movie actually could have made in the 1940s. It accepts its conventions and categories at face value and doesn't make them the object of satire or filter them through a modern sensibility. . . . --Roger Ebert.

    6875CHINESE CAFES IN RURAL SASKATCHEWAN*CHINESE CAFES IN RURAL SASKATCHEWAN*1985color26 minvhs Explores the relationship of rural communities and cafes owned and operated by Chinese immigrants. Three cafes in Outlook, Saskatchewan, and their owners are highlighted. The first Chinese workers arrived in Canada following the 1850's Frasier River Valley gold rush. Prejudices among western European Canadians forced Chinese workers into traditional "women's jobs" such as laundries and restaurants. The Immigration Exclusion Act prohibited Chinese women from immigrating to Canada and further isolated Chinese men from assimilation into normal society. After the repeal of the Exclusion Act in 1947, Chinese women were allowed to immigrate to Canada. However, without English language skills, they found themselves isolated from other Cnadian women and excluded from many professions. Restaurants and cafes became an avenue for success and employment. Chinese cafes have added stable employment to rural areas, given communities gathering places and community identities and helped to assimilate second generation Chinese into the community.

In the 1970s there was scarcely any information about China available in the outside world, so this was a real opportunity. We knew of Mao and his Little Red Book but scarely more. China, one supposes, felt safe with Antonioni, due to his political leanings, that he would present a positive picture of their country. Shows the area around Beijing, including a cotton factory, older sections of the city, a clinic where a Cesarean operation is performed using acupuncture and a primary school.

As hard as he tried to stay neutral politically, the Chinese, in the midst of The Cultural Revolution, were not pleased with the end result of the film. Antonioni was aware of the repression in the country and could not avoid showing it. Here he travels to Shanghai to film the port and the industries. The film ends with a presentation by Chinese acrobats.

It is also grand entertainment, sharply acted (starring many of Welles' Mercury Players on the road to thriving film careers) and superbly directed with inspired visual flair. Depicting the controversial life of an influential publishing tycoon, it is rooted in themes of power, corruption, vanity--the American Dream lost in the mystery of a dying man's last world: "Rosebud."

  • 1996 ----- color/b&w ----- 113 min ----- dvd
  • In 1941, 24-years-old Orson Welles--armed with the most lucrative motion-picture contract ever--directed, co-wrote and starred in Citizen Kane, a masterpiece many regard as the best film ever made. The alleged subject of the film disagreed. Publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst wielded his immense power, wealth and influence to destroy the film--and Welles himself. Through amazingly candid interviews with Welles, the Citizen Kane cast and associates of both combatants, discover what made Welles so revered and Hearst so vindictive. Extensive Citizen Kane clips and fascinating biographical profiles of both men (including rare footage from San Simeon and Welles' historic The War of the Worlds broadcast) reveal new facts in the struggle between two proud, gifted and destructive Americans on a fateful collision course.

  • 6794CITIZEN KANE*CITIZEN KANE*1941b & w119 minlaserdisc (Directed by Orson Welles; with Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Dorothy Comingore, Everett Sloane) Citizen Kane is a landmark film for myriad reasons, not the least of which is the variety of techniques employed--quick cuts, imaginative dissolves, even the iris device once popular in silent films. Indeed, none of the filmmaking methodology of the past is left unused, but Citizen Kane also contributes an array of innovative cinematic devices, most notable Gregg Toland's deep focus photography. Visually this is Toland's film, a masterpiece of shadow and sharp contrast that artfully conveys murky moods and occasional moments of gaiety as camera and reporter search for the meaning of a man's life. Welles's direction is awe-inspiring: he chronicles Kane's life through a combination of highly dramatic episodes and newsreel-like footage--slices of life that form a patchwork biography. This film is so tightly made, so economically shot and written, that every scene counts, filling in a piece of the puzzle, incomplete though it may be at the finish.

    6225CITYCITY, THE1939b & w43 min16mm (Produced by Ralph Steiner and Willard Van Dyke for the 1939 New York World's Fair; music by Aaron Copland) Traces the historic stages in the growth of cities in the U.S., ending in a prescription for the future by the group of city planners who sponsored the film: that urban development could be decentralized to eliminate congestion and relieve health and safety hazards. But the heart of the film lies in its lively (and somewhat antithetical) celebration of contemporary Manhattan life. Candid scenes of bustling city dwellers, traffic snarls, and a climactic montage sequence at a frenetic lunch counter introduced satiric humor to the American documentary.
    570CITY CARS OR PEOPLE?CITY: CARS OR PEOPLE?1963b & w29 min16mm (Lewis Mumford on the City series, Part 2) Study of an old but dangerously growing problem--how to make the city accessible for meeting and mixing without allowing transportation to make it congested and uninhabitable as the private car now threatens to do.

    565CITY AS MAN'S HOMECITY AS MAN'S HOME1963b & w29 min16mm (Lewis Mumford on the City series, Part 5) Shows development of city housing from slums, giant public housing complexes, to mass suburbs and anonymous and bleak luxury apartments.

    608COMING OF THE INSECTS, THECOMING OF THE INSECTS, THE1981color22 min16mm (Life on Earth series, Part 7) The development of insects is traced from pre-historic times. Fossils are abundant because millions of insects have been perfectly preserved in the resin of trees. Mechanics of flight are discussed and determined to be far too complex for man to emulate. Insects evolved wings in order to feed on the upper-most portions of plants. Plants adapted to the feeding habits of insects by producing excess pollen, then by developing brilliant colors and strong scents to attract the pollinators. Thus the advent of blossoming--a mystery which to this day, scientists cannot fully explain.

This remake of the classic film on non-verbal behavior shows how non-verbal cues can change the meaning of our words. Many examples are used to show how we send messages, sometimes conflicting ones, to our co-workers. These messages express degrees of like, dominance and responsiveness. Cultural differences also come into play because non-verbal messages can be mis-interpreted. By being alert to our non-verbal cues, we can better express our own goals as well as those of our organization.

    5110COMPROMISE IN CONGRESSCOMPROMISE IN CONGRESS1983color30 minvhs (Congress: We the People series, Part 8) Law-making is often a product of accommodation, trading-off, balancing competing interests. The essentials of writing those laws take place in two main forums: the mark-up of a bill in committee and the conference that reconciles the differences between the House and the Senate once a bill passes each chamber. The arduous process of writing our laws, word by word, line by line, provides many opportunities for the competing interests in our society to get their way, subject to the will of the majority.
    7765COMPULSIVE COMMUNICATORS, THE [VHS]*COMPULSIVE COMMUNICATORS, THE [VHS]*1978color56 minvhs (Life On Earth [VHS] series, Part 13) David Attenborough ends the series by tracing the origins of human beings in Africa three million years ago and the impact of man's talent for communication on the environment. Features parts 26 & 27 of the 16mm film version of the 'Life on Earth' series.

    Part 26, Upright Man: Millions of years ago, herds of grazing animals and tree-dwelling apes ventured into the grasslands to search for food. Rendered relatively defenseless by their poor sense of smell, the apes relied heavily on their eyesight, thus taking an upright position in order to see over greater distances than their four-legged predators. Alterations of bones in the lower body took place to enable a more erect stance, thus Homo erectus arrived. They hunted in teams, employing foresight and planning as weapons to supplement their tools. There is evidence of speech and language through studying the brain structure of early Homo sapiens. A monumental evolutionary change is observed in the ancient cave paintings of southern France (25 minutes).

    Part 27, Compulsive Communicators: David Attenborough studies man, the most expressive mammal, in the last film of the series. He poses the question, are expressions learned or inherited? In order to shed light on the topic, he surveys natives in Central New Guinea who have never been exposed to the outside world. As review he traces the development of the sea and land creatures which evolved into mankind and then examines the human being's need for communication (26 minutes).

"So we found out that what we thought was dead was really alive." He retraces the Indian world through their magnificent pyramids and sculptures, a world of precise astronomy and human sacrifice, serenity and violence. The return of their blond, exiled god was forecast for the very year Cortes reached their shores.

Set principally in 1938, Bertolucci views the life of an upper-class follower of Mussolini. Jean-Louis Trintignant is the aristocratic Fascist - an intelligent coward who sacrifices everything he cares about because he wants the safety of normality. Stefania Sandrelli is his deliciously corrupt, empty-headed wife, and Dominique Sanda, with her swollen lips and tiger eyes, is the lesbian he would like to run away with. ". . . if the ideas don't touch the imagination, the film's sensuous texture does.

    5111CONGRESS AND THE BUREAUCRACYCONGRESS AND THE BUREAUCRACY1983color29 minvhs (Congress: We the People series, Part 21) More national policy than you might suppose is shaped in the federal bureaucracy. It is here that policy takes shape. The bureaucracy has considerable leeway in carrying out the law and in determining whether a particular program succeeds or fails, and it may even, on occasion, counter the will of Congress or the President. This section looks at the relationship between Congress and the bureaucracy and the frequent conflicts between Congress and the President over who controls the bureaucracy, if, indeed, anyone does.
    5112CONGRESS AND THE COURTCONGRESS AND THE COURT1983color29 minvhs (Congress: We the People series, Part 22) The power to make laws which, under the Constitution, is Congress' job and the power to interpret them, the Court's responsibility, are not as separate as our forefathers anticipated. The powers often converge and conflict so each branch has tried to expand its power to keep the other in check. Explores the fragile system of checks and balances between Congress and the Court. Examples of action include the confirmation hearing of Sandra Day O'Connor, the abortion decision and the striking down of the legislative veto.
    5113CONGRESS AND THE MEDIACONGRESS AND THE MEDIA1983color29 minvhs (Congress: We the People series, Part 23) Explores the relationship between Congress and the media. Shows how Congressmen seek and try to structure their coverage by their local press and television stations. Shows how national media treatment of Congress is more detached and critical. Congress and the press need each other, but they often need each other for conflicting reasons. Like much else in Washington, it's a system of checks and balances.
    5114CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENTCONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT1983color29 minvhs (Congress: We the People series, Part 19) The separation of the Executive and Legislative powers was the key departure from the English parliamentary tradition. Yet the branches are also intertwined through checks and balances and shared powers--lawmaking, treaties and appointments. So the two branches, no matter how much in conflict, are compelled to work together. From the beginning, presidents have spent much of their time and resources trying to persuade Congress to go along with the White House point-of-view. Sometimes they succeed, often they do not, but they must try.
    5115CONGRESS IN COMMITTEECONGRESS IN COMMITTEE1983color29 minvhs (Congress: We the People series, Part 7) With 535 legislators trying to accomplish thousands of things everyday, committees provide the division of labor and of power necessary to accomplish anything. Being on the right committee may also help a member in promoting particular causes, assisting constituents or gaining personal leverage and power. All of these things help to shape the laws under which we live.
    5116CONGRESS OF COMMUNITIES, ACONGRESS OF COMMUNITIES, A1983color29 minvhs (Congress: We the People series, Part 15) In a country as large and diverse as the United States, congressional districts vary tremendously in every way. People, interests and problems in Albuquerque don't seem to have much in common with those in Harlem. But the ways in which legislators represent their communities, build trust with their constituents, tend to their needs and demands, protect their interests are very much the same. Rep. Charles Rangel, 16th Congressional District of New York, and Jim Coyne of Pennsylvania are used as examples of a good and an unresponsive Congressman.

When members of Congress return to their home districts they're very likely to spend a good deal of time in the local town hall seeing their constituents. Phil Gramm, 6th District, Texas; Al Ullman, 2nd District, Oregon; and Morris Udall, 2nd District, Arizona, are used as examples of trust built, lost and regained.

He speaks about his life and societal struggle as a homosexual. He talks about his book, Stranger at the Gate: To Be Gay and Christian in America, and discusses the turmoil he went through as a child and as a political speech for the "Religious Right." He focuses on how he learned to conquer stereotypes within the Christian community. Now at peace with God, he talks about his church and "out-loving the enemy."
    638CONQUERING THE SEACONQUERING THE SEA1968color26 min16mm Points out that man has used the sea only as a means of transportation in the past but, as mineral and food resources on land are being depleted, he will be forced to turn to the oceans for a new supply. Shows that the underwater world contains chemicals and minerals enough to supply industrial needs for centuries and food enough to feed 15 billion people. Examines the new techniques being developed for taking advantage of the sea's vast potential and making it practical, such as breathing through artificial gills, underwater farming and mining, fish ranches with porpoises as foremen.
    640CONQUEST OF SOULS, THECONQUEST OF SOULS, THE1978color42 min16mm/vhs (Christians, The series, Part 8) By the sixteenth century man's conception of the world had changed drastically. The sailors of Spain and Portugal would not only import food and spices, they would also export Christianity. Cortes arrived in Mexico in 1519 to find in the Aztecs a culture more ancient than Christianity. Montezuma, expecting the return of the peaceful god of wind and agriculture, Quetzalcoatl, invited Cortes and his soldiers into the city. Cortes took Montezuma prisoner and within two years controlled the empire. The spiritual conquest was almost as fast. Though the Spanish crusade was brutal it ended in success when the whole of Latin America became Christian.

    7757CONQUEST OF THE WATERS, THE [VHS]*CONQUEST OF THE WATERS, THE [VHS]*1978color58 minvhs (Life On Earth [VHS] series, Part 5) The evolution of fish, the first animals to develop backbones, is the subject of this episode, which includes superb underwater photography. Features parts 10 & 11 of the 16mm film version of the 'Life On Earth' series.

    Part 10, The Conquest of the Waters: David Attenborough explores a variety of sea life beginning with the sea squirt, a simple structure which dates back to ancient time. Coral cliffs and dry seabeds are inspected for traces of early sea creatures. Scales, skulls and jaws have been discovered--the remains of the shark's ancestors. As fish spread to the lakes and rivers, they developed gills which enabled them to breathe in the warmer waters. Bladder bags also evolved which made the fish more buoyant in the shallow waters. Thus the origin of the modern bony fish, such as the trout (22 minutes).

    641CONQUEST OF THE WATERS, THECONQUEST OF THE WATERS, THE1981color22 min16mm (Life on Earth series, Part 10) David Attenborough explores a variety of sea life beginning with the sea squirt, a simple structure which dates back to ancient time. Coral cliffs and dry seabeds are inspected for traces of early sea creatures. Scales, skulls and jaws have been discovered--the remains of the shark's ancestors. As fish spread to the lakes and rivers, they developed gills which enabled them to breathe in the warmer waters. Bladder bags also evolved which made the fish more buoyant in the shallow waters. Thus the origin of the modern bony fish, such as the trout.
    6587CONSCIOUSNESSCONSCIOUSNESS1995color56 minvhs (Human Quest series) Throughout human history, the everyday miracle of consciousness, of being aware, has led philosophers, poets and mystics to believe that the essence of our being can exist independently of our bodies. This program examines: What do we know about human consciousness at the end of the 20th century? What progress has neuroscience made in explaining consciousness? How does our brain organize the sensory information it receives to create a coherent picture of our world? Will we develop computers that can mimic our sense of self?

    5753CONSUMING IMAGESCONSUMING IMAGES1989color57 minvhs (Public Mind: Image and Reality in America with Bill Moyers series, Part 1) Ever since the pioneers of public relations and advertising spoke about the "engineering of consent," social critics have analyzed its effects. For some, it reveals pure manipulation--appropriation of language and meaning, the trivialization of life and thought. For others, it is the dawning of a new era--when the printed word is dead and art and commerce are now joined in ever more sophisticated ways. "The truth is that which sells; if people buy it, it's right." is the advertising ethic that now possesses politics as well as journalism. Americans are increasingly at the mercy of someone else's fiction.
    7626CONTACTCONTACT*1997color150 minvhs (Directed by Robert Zemeckis, screenplay by Michael Goldenberg, James V. Hart, based on the story by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan and the novel by Carl Sagan; with Jodie Foster, Matthew McConaughey, James Woods, John Hurt, Tom Skerritt, Angela Bassett) When you look up in the sky late at night, do you ever have the feeling that another being is doing the same thing light years away? How could there be so many stars and no other life than just us? It would be a terrible waste of space, wouldn't it? Personal identification, the existence of God, the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, love, death, etc. are common threads in written science-fiction, and have been for years. To find them in a commercial Hollywood sci-fi flick is nothing short of fiction itself, but what would one expect from Carl Sagan. It is a film, not unlike 2001: A Space Odyssey which sets its own tempo and demands that we as audience relax and "let it work."

    6556CONTINENT ON THE MOVE (MEXICO)CONTINENT ON THE MOVE (MEXICO)1993color57 minvhs (Americas series, Part 3) Mexico has lived in the shadow of its northern cousin since the Revolution in 1910. Its economy stagnated for years, important only as cheap provider of goods to the United States. The push towards mass mechanization in the '70s inspired a false hope--prosperity through industrialization. People fled from the country to the cities in ever higher numbers to seek employment; but only the rich seemed to benefit from foreign aid. With the passage of NAFTA, Mexico's future seems brighter, more encouraging for those who have never had a chance. The money will be in the hands of those who need it most--the peasants.

    6223CONTINUING THE LINECONTINUING THE LINE1991color48 minvhs (Trials of Life: A Natural History of Behavior series, Part 12) The process of creating a new generation can be fraught with great difficulties. It may have to be timed with precision; it may render those involved temporarily defenseless; it can risk serious injury; and in some cases it brings certain death. It is the final trial of life and its ultimate triumph. There is no lack of variety in the ways animals get together and no discernible rules governing that process. Animals solve the problems of fertilization through androgenous development, in once-in-a-lifetime orgies of release, and in both monogamous pairs and polygamous harems.
