Ghosts of Rwanda( Visual )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years ago, when the United Nations sent peacekeepers to the small, Central African nation, most of the policymakers involved believed it would be a straightforward mission that would help restore the UN's battered reputation after failures in Bosnia and Somalia. Few could imagine that, a decade later. Rwanda would be the crisis that still haunts their souls. This documentary marks the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide - a state-sponsored massacre in which some 800,000 Rwandans were methodically hunted down and murdered by Hutu extremists as the United States and international community stood by, refusing to inervene. Through interviews with key government officials, diplomats, soldiers, and survivors of the slaughter, Ghosts of Rwanda offers groundbreaking, firsthand accounts of the genocide from those who lived it: the diplomats on the scene who thought they were building peace only to see their colleagues murdered; the Tutsi survivors, who recount the horror of seeing their friends and family members slaughtered by Hutu friends and co-workers; and the UN peacekeepers in Rwanda who were ordered not to intervene in the massacre happening all around them. The documentary features interviews with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Canadian General Romeo Dallaire, and former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake as well as haunting interviews with the Hutu killers themselves. Ghosts of Rwanda also examines the aftermath of the genocide, the lessons learned - and not learned - by the international community, and question whether the phrase "never again" has more meaning today than it did ten years ago

In recent years, there's been a dramatic increase in the number of children being diagnosed with serious psychiatric disorders and prescribed medications that are just beginning to be tested in children.

And I tell parents there's no way to know what's going to work."

The meth epidemic( Visual )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speed. Meth. Glass. On the street, methamphetamine has many names. What started as a fad among West Coast motorcycle gangs in the 1970s has spread across the United States and despite lawmakers' calls for action, the drug is now more potent, and more destructive, than at any time in the past decade. The Meth Epidemic investigates the meth rampage in America: the appalling impact on individuals, families and communities, and the difficulty of controlling an essential ingredient in meth - ephedrine and pseudoephedrine - sold legally in over-the-counter cold remedies. In the US Congress, a bipartisan coalition has called for international controls on ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, either of which is essential for making meth. Many states have forced cold medicines that contain these ingredients off retail shelves and behind the pharmacy counter, a move that may become a national requirement. Methamphetamine abuse started in California and Oregon, but spread rapidly into the Midwest. Now the drug has reached the East Coast. The discovery of meth labs in states from Maine to Florida foreshadows a new crisis on the East Coast. Statistics show that meth can trigger a surge in other crimes: In Oregon, a staggering 85 percent of property crime, as well as a majority of muggings, car thefts and identity thefts, has been linked to the drug
The age of AIDS( Visual )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part one follows the trail of a medical mystery which began in 1981 when five gay men in Los Angeles were diagnosed with a deadly new disease. Traces the international response in the first years of the epidemic, contrasting moments of inspirational leadership with the tragedy of missed opportunities. Reveals the astounding spread of the infection to over 70 million infections in 2006. Part two explores the chasm that emerged between rich and poor following the development of the miraculous "triple cocktail" HIV treatment. While the discovery seemed to signal a new era in which AIDS was no longer a fatal disease, the high price of the drugs meant they were unaffordable to patients in developing nations. Also examines the next wave of the AIDS epidemic in some of the most populous and strategically important nations in the world, including Russia, India and China, and tracks the same pattern of official denial and political indifference that characterized the epidemic in so many other countries

Frontline( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the worsening economy leads to massive job losses--potentially forcing millions more Americans to go without health insurance--FRONTLINE travels the country examining the nation's broken health care system and explores the need for a fundamental overhaul. This film dissects the private insurance system, a system that not only fails to cover 46 million Americans, but also leaves millions more under-insured and at risk of bankruptcy. Around the world, other developed democracies offer universal health care, requiring insurance companies to cover everyone. At its best, American health care can be very good. But not if people across the U.S. are forced into making life decisions--staying in jobs and even bad marriages--to find or keep health insurance
