3 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Koko, a Talking Gorilla is a documentary from 1978 that observes a zoo-born female gorilla in the fifth year of an experiment in human-simian communications. Dr. Penny Patterson has taught Koko hundreds of sign-language words in American Sign Language. Observing Koko's daily routine, her responses, her rejection of a new yellow sweater for her worn older red one, and her initiation of new subjects in conversation prompts more questions than it answers. What separates man from animal? The ability to construct a society, to speak, or to understand complex thought? No matter the conclusions, the film remains a compelling document of a fascinating experiment

In 1997 Michael Foale was the American astronaut on board the Russian space station Mir at the time of a failed docking attempt with an unmanned Progress supply ship. The supply ship collided with Mir, punching a hole in one of the modules of Mir, damaging a number of the solar panels, and inducing a tumbling motion that prevented the remaining solar panels from pointing toward the sun. Michael Foale provides his personal account of the experience, and explains the mathematical methods involved in rescuing Mir from what would almost certainly have been its demise had they been forced to evacuate and leave it tumbling without power until it burned up re-entering the earth's atmosphere
N is a number a portrait of Paul Erdős ; a documentary film ; the story of a wandering mathematician obsessed with unsolved problems ( )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A man with no home and no job, Paul Erdös was the most prolific mathematician who ever lived. A wandering genius, Erdös, who died in 1996 at the age of 83, spent his life engaged in a cosmic struggle to uncover truths hidden by a stubborn adversary - God. In N is a Number he describes this metaphysical duel with the same wry humor he applied to politics, relationships and death. The documentary follows him through four countries to discover what makes mathematicians tick. N is a Number presents Erdös' mathematical quest, its personal and philosophical dimensions, and the tragic historical events that molded his life. Two animated sequences illustrate the kinds of problems Erdös pursued throughout his life. N is a Number is a one-hour documentary film made with support from the American Mathematical Society, Films Arts Foundation, the Heineman Foundation, the Mathematical Association of America and the National Science Foundations' Information Science Education Program. For the DVD additional scenes with Paul Erdös have been added
