113. Commanding heights : the battle of ideas   Publication: [Boston, MA] : WGBH Boston Video 2003 . 2 hours. ; DVD , Documentary./Based on the book by Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw./ Videodisc release of the 2002 television documentary series./ Closed captioned for the hearing impaired./ Special features: Daniel Yergin on creating a television series from his book; Q&A with Daniel Yergin and producers William Cran and Greg Barker; access to Commanding Heights website; an excerpt from the companion book; a complete list of interview subjects included in the series./ Participants: Narrator, David Ogden Stiers. Abstract: This series explores our changing world; the new rules of the game, the winners and losers in the clash between government and the marketplace, the great debate over the impact of globalization, and the powerful forces shaping our economy and the future of society. The Battle of Ideas identifies how the world, for much of the twentieth century, first moved toward more government control and then began to move away. The program focuses on the struggle between two economic thinkers, John Maynard Keynes, whose ideas on government intervention dominated much of the twentieth century, and Freidrich Von Hayek, whose free-market ideas were largely ignored until the economic crises of the 1970s forced political leaders to rediscover them. In the 1980s, the simultaneous emergence of the governments of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan set the stage for a worldwide capitalist revolution--one that will be tested by economic turmoil in the future.

114. Commanding heights : the agony of reform   Publication: [Boston, MA] : WGBH Boston Video 2003 . 2 hours ; DVD , Documentary./Based on the book by Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw./ Videodisc release of the 2002 television documentary series./ Closed captioned for the hearing impaired./ Special features: Daniel Yergin on creating a television series from his book; Q&A with Daniel Yergin and producers William Cran and Greg Barker; access to Commanding Heights website; an excerpt from the companion book; a complete list of interview subjects included in the series./ Participants: Narrator, David Ogden Stiers. Abstract: This series explores our changing world; the new rules of the game, the winners and losers in the clash between government and the marketplace, the great debate over the impact of globalization, and the powerful forces shaping our economy and the future of society. The Agony of Reform explores the failure of government-controlled economies in the 1980s and how new leaders embraced the ideas of reform and "shock therapy" -- a rapid conversion to free-market capitalism. The program focuses on how reform played out in Russia, the eastern bloc, Latin America, India, and other countries as they lived through the upheavals of rapid change, coping with both the new freedoms and the new issues of privatization, deregulation, and the shock of free-wheeling competition.

118. Founding fathers : the men who shaped our nation and changed the world (1)   Publication: MPH Entertainment Inc. for The History Channel 2000 . One DVD : 100 minutes ; color , All rights reserved. Volume One: REBELS WITH A CAUSE The birth of American democracy as attended by an extraordinary cast of characters, drawn from every level of colonial society. They brought to the cause of independence a dazzling array of talents and genius--and an equally noteworthy range of personality flaws and defects. Sam Adams was a rumpled, pugnacious man who failed at a variety of professions, before finding his niche as a revolutionary with a knack for inciting mob violence. John Hancock, a wealthy, aristocratic merchant, was also a known wine-smuggler with a major economic stake in breaking away from Britain. But the unique chemistry of this political "odd couple" would prove pivotal, combining to spark the fires of resentment which until then had been merely smoldering within the colonies. TAKING LIBERTIES In the aftermath of heavy British tax levies and the shock of the Boston Massacre, the situation in the American colonies grew more incendiary. Helping to fan the flames was the eloquent orator Patrick Henry, who rose from backwoods obscurity to marry into money and make the first open "call to arms." Meanwhile, Benjamin Franklin, actually slow to join the colonists' cause, was in London--desperately attempting to patch things up with King George. Across the Atlantic, George Washington, a retired soldier with a spotty military record, maneuvered for command of the rebel forces, while an alcoholic essay writer named Thomas Paine published "Common Sense," one of the period's most famous and inflammatory tracts.

119. Founding fathers : the men who shaped our nation and changed the world (2)   Publication: MPH Entertainment Inc. for The History Channel 2000 . One DVD : 100 minutes ; color , All rights reserved. Volume two: YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION By 1776, the rebels would finally make their fateful, final break with Britain. One of those advocating this extreme step was a young Virginia planter named Thomas Jefferson. A misogynist who suffered debilitating migraines, the man who penned the Declaration of Independence wrestled all his life with the contradiction of being a slave-owner himself. On the battlefield, the war did not get off to a promising start. George Washington failed miserably in his first campaigns, while Ben Franklin's own son was arrested for plotting to aid the enemy. But as the revolutionary army gained in experience and confidence--and the French threw their considerable financial support into the fray--the tide slowly but surely began to turn in the rebels' direction. A HEALTHY CONSTITUTION After the final defeat of British forces in Yorktown, the thirteen colonies found themselves in a unique and frightening situation: building a new, democratic nation with no money, few allies and no blueprint of how to proceed. The revolution's savior would turn out to be the shy, studious James Madison, the father of the Constitution. Also vital to the new nation's survival was ensuring good ties with the friends it possessed. Sent to Paris to maintainvital ties with the French. Thomas Jefferson would engage in not one but two scandalous affairs: one with a married woman and one with his slave Sally Hemings. Back in the newly independent America, the revered George Washington would decline the titleof "King" and become the first President of the grand social experiment that came to be the United States of America.

120. The American president : a matter of destiny   Publication: PBS DVD Video 2000 . 120 mins. : color , Episode One: Family Ties J.Q. Adams B. Harrson, F. Roosevelt, Kennedy. The last thing that the Founding Fathers envisioned was a hereditary chief executive. After all, they had fought a war in part to rid themselves of a king. Yet, power inevitably passes from generation to generation, and several families have returned to the White House as though born to it. The stories of the four men profiled in this hour reveal both the blessings and the curses of inherited power. Episode Two: Happenstance Tyler, Fillmore, A. Johnson, Arthur, Truman. Nearly one in five American presidents has died in office. The vice presidents who succeeded then were often chosen for the ticket less because they were equal to the most powerful office in the land than because they provided some electoral advantage. What happens when such a man takes office--frequently facing widespread conviction that he is unworthy of the powers he inherits? Date: 2000 Availability: No items available:
