2. Grand Canyon : America's scenic treasure. / New Dimension Media, Inc.   Publication: Chicago, IL New Dimension . 1 videodisc (ca. 20 min.) : sd., col. ; 4 3/4 in. , When Theodore Roosevelt created the National Conservation Commission in 1908, it was more from the prodding of John Muir, the greatest admirer of Yosemite and founder of the Sierra Club, than from any other National Park or group. The scenic wonders of its glacially-carved Valley made it an early favorite of artists and photographers, and its California location made it easier to visit than the other two. It roots as a conservation site go back farther than even Yellowstone; Lincoln first proposed preserving its giant Sequoia trees, the most massive living things on earth. It became a California state park before Yellowstone was a national park, but soon followed as the third National Park in 1890. Muir said that it was full of Nature’s temples, comparable to Europe’s cathedrals and other historic buildings, making it the most sacred American place. His enthusiasm made him one of America’s most famous writers and mountain climbers, and he had several first ascents of peaks in the Sierra Nevada range, the largest and least-visited area of the Park. Muir dubbed the Sierra the Range of Light, and we experience this vivid light and color gloriously in this program. Availability: No items available:

17. 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.

18. 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.

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 New Rules of the Game tracks the explosive growth of the world economy from the 1992 presidential campaign to the present. Examining the promise and the perils of the global economy, the film focuses on the story of President Bill Clinton's embrace of free trade, the threat of global contagion, the sometimes violent debate over globalization, and the issues facing the Bush Administration and the United States in the 21st century. It tackles the impact of free trade on the developing world and on Americans, the sometimes perilous effects of globalized economies, and the critical questions for the future--including the challenge of bringing the world's poor into the era of global growth.

20. 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:
