14. 2005 Presidential inaugural ceremony: President George W. Bush sworn-in to second term   Publication: 2005 . 22 mins.: color , 2005 Presidential inaugural ceremony: President George W. Bush sworn-in to second term President Bush has taken the oath of office for a second term. The theme of his inaugural address can be summed up in one word: freedom. On January 20, at noon (1700 GMT), the president put his hand on a bible and repeated the traditional oath. Chief Justice William Rehnquist, administered the oath on the west front of the Capitol. Members of the U.S. Congress served as witnesses, along with a crowd of about 100,000 people gathered on the vast lawn that stretches from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. Military gunners fired their cannons as Hail to the Chief was played, signaling the start of a new presidential term. To the cheers of his supporters and the applause of those who came just for a glimpse of history, George W. Bush moved to the podium to deliver his second inaugural address.

15. JFK: years of lightning, day of drums   Publication: Washington, D.C.: U.S. Information Agency 1964 . 85 mins.: color , JFK: years of lightning, day of drums In this poetic propaganda film by the USIA made for foreign audiences, Kennedy is the American hero who had "years of lightning" before his life was ended and remembered in a "day of drums" funeral. The film is structured around the "six faces" of the New Frontier: the Peace Corps, conquest of space, Alliance for Progress, civil rights, freedom, peace. In 1961 "upon the floating globe called the world there were three billion people and most of them were not happy or free or at peace." There were loud and visible problems of " fires burning in the Congo" and a "foreign-dictated government in Cuba" and "starvation for one-third of the world." John Kennedy is portrayed as one of the uncommon men in the history of the world who thought not of problems but of "the invisible and silent" solutions. Featured in this film are his speech at White House to the first Peace Corps volunteers, his journey to Costa Rica -- "viva Costa Rica, viva Costa Rica, mucha gracias" -- the Freedom Riders mass meeting Aug. 28 in Washington DC, the Alan Shephard award ceremony, the Berlin crisis --"if war begins, it begins in Moscow, not Berlin" -- his speech at the Berlin Wall --"Let them come to Berlin" -- and his trip to Ireland. Interspersed between each of these segments are scenes from the 1963 funeral. "History will pick up its cold pen and book, and write in chronological order the events of the day with the date and time and the city. But history will be wrong, for there wasn't one date, or time, or city." His life and death symbolized the "invisible and silent" hopes and dreams of the world.
