Annette von Droste-Hulshoff( Visual )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although her most important writings came late in life, Annette von Droste-Hulshoff's poetry and prose-often compared to Goethe's-have assured her a place among Germany's great 19th-century writers. This program visits Castle Hulshoff, her Westphalian birthplace; the Ruchhaus; and Meersburg Castle on Lake Constance, where she experienced her period of greatest productivity. Aspects of her life, such as her need for solitude amid nature, and the qualities of isolation, melancholy, reverie, and longing inherent in her writing are discussed. A Deutsche Welle production
Watery visions is the future potable?( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a dramatic reversal of policy since apartheid, South Africa has become a model of water fulfillment. Despite being one of the driest regions on Earth, India's Rajasthan is an oasis due to the revival of a system of ancient rain basins. This program looks at these encouraging examples to show how sustainable solutions to long-term water management can be achieved, while a visit to Sertao in Brazil illustrates the appalling alternative-two very different futures

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program takes a hard look at the mounting challenge of providing millions of people in urban areas with potable water and adequate disposal of waste water.

The massive logistics that enable Las Vegas to prosper in the middle of a desert are also explored
Water for profit( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The moment demand outpaces supply, water becomes a commodity to be traded in the global market. But who owns the rights to water? And how can a price be set on water? In this program, the pros and cons of privatization are assessed in a number of water management situations around the world: Aguas Argentina in Buenos Aires; the Bechtel corporation in Cochabamba, Bolivia; Thames Water company in Jakarta; and a public/private test partnership in Albania. Corporate representatives, anti-privatization activists, farmers, and industry experts offer commentary from all sides of the issue
Waters of discord( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost half the world gets its drinking water from rivers that cross national boundaries. Analysts predict that more wars will be fought over water than oil. This program surveys a number of active or potential hot spots: Israel and the river Jordan; the Southeastern Anatolia Project in Turkey and its effects on Syria and Iraq; Egypt's Toshka Canal and the Nile Basin Initiative; and the Tehri dam in India. The program also looks at the effects of the Hoover dam on the Colorado River delta in Mexico and the success of Lesotho's Katse dam. Vandana Shiva, author of Water Wars, discusses many of these situations
Testing the limits of possibility massive dams and waterworks( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it comes to water management, many politicians and technocrats have felt that colossal problems are only solved by colossal projects: dams. But blind faith in concrete can often have devastating effects on communities and the environment. This program examines the positive and negative impact, as well as the politics and economics of several ongoing or proposed projects: China's Three Gorges Dam, Egypt's Mubarak pumping station, pit-mine reclamation in Germany's Lausitz region, and Spain's controversial national hydrological plan for the Ebro river.

Goethe in Weimar( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program pays lyrical homage to the enigmatic relationship between the poet/dramatist Goethe and the Baroness Charlotte von Stein and explores its influence on his work. Excerpts from a selection of the more than 2,000 letters exchanged by Goethe, Charlotte, and their friends bear testimony to the intensity and intimacy of the relationship-one which most experts believe was platonic, despite the often passionate tone of the letters. Dramatized vignettes, sketches, and actual footage provide a historical glimpse into the German courts of the period, and into the life of this revered German figure and the woman he considered "mother, sister, and one true love." A Deutsche Welle production. (28 minutes)
Sports shoe wars battle of the giants in China( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three athletic footwear companies, Nike, Adidas, and homegrown upstart Li Ning, have faced off in a high-stakes battle for China's gigantic market.

Li Ning's efforts to retain its precarious hold on the urban market are also studied
Stories of women in Kabul( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The producers of this program were granted unlimited access to Kabul's Baghe Zanana, or Garden of Women-perhaps the only public place in Afghanistan where men are not welcome. Here, women can gather, dance, and remove their burqas without fear of violence or alienation. In stark contrast, a women's prison is also visited. The courageous figures who inhabit these settings-including a resident therapist who conducts support groups for the frightened and the traumatized, and a cafeteria employee struggling to improve her family's living conditions-demonstrate how far Afghanistan must go to overcome its repressive and war-ravaged history
Enhanced vision new directions in ophthalmology( Visual )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this program, direct access to the eye coupled with technological wizardry has meant that ophthalmology is one of the most rapidly advancing areas of medicine. Techniques and experimental procedures, such as photodynamic therapy, which inhibits macular degeneration by eroding deposits called drusen, are profiled. The program shows how microsurgery, particular the LASIK method, has revolutionized the field. Also detailed are pioneering treatments for cataracts, retinitis pigmentosa, and new methods to detect and treat glaucoma

Branding, the use of supermodels to boost international appeal, and the drawing power of celebrity endorsements and sponsorships are also addressed. A Deutsche Welle Production. (26 minutes)
Targeting tumor cells new strategies in fighting cancer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pap smear was a diagnostic milestone in detecting precancerous cells. Researchers are developing similar tests, particularly ones based on genetic predisposition, as they learn to home in on other cancers. As this program illustrates, sophisticated screening is just one of the ways medicine has advanced the fight against a dreaded disease. The program also looks at the targeted destruction of tumors through drugs that either react to substances unique to tumor cells or suppress angiogenesis. The latest surgical techniques using lasers, robots, and endoscopes are examined as well. A Deutsche Welle Production

A Deutsche Welle production
Women in the Struggle Against Poverty a Case Study( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women living in third-world nations often must defy repressive social customs and religious doctrines in order to become financial contributors to their families and villages. This program focuses on the growing movement of courageous women in Bangladesh who, with the assistance of aid societies, run profitable cottage industries, often risking severe reprisals.
