Race and intelligence : science's last taboo( Visual )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2007, Nobel Prize winning US scientist James Watson was quoted referring to research suggesting that black people were less intelligent than other races. His comments caused a storm of controversy, Watson was condemned. Although he apologised for the offence he caused, his public engagements were cancelled and he left his British speaking tour in disgrace. Meanwhile, right wing websites hailed him as the new Galileo - a martyr to political correctness that was concealing the fact that there is indeed evidence that shows different races score differently in IQ tests. But are the tests biased? Is race really a scientific category at all? Inthis documentary, part of the season Race: Science's Last Taboo, Rageh Omaar sets out to find out the truth, meeting scientists who believe the research supports the view that races can be differentiated as well as those who vehemently oppose this view. By daring to ask the difficult questions, Omaar is able to explode the myths about race and IQ and reveal what he thinks are important lessons for society
One day of war( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every minute, two people are killed in conflicts around the world. Often we know very little about the people who are fighting and dying. One Day of War follows individual fighters in 16 of these wars, over the same 24-hour period. Each film was made on 22 March 2004. The video producers followed their chosen, or given, 'character' throughout this period, capturing a snapshot of their everyday lives. We gain an insight into their reasons for fighting and their hopes for the future, as well as intimate portraits of the fear, excitement, and often banality of life in a war. All 16 characters have a story to tell. They are all fighting in different types of conflict in disparate regions. The day of filming sees them experience challenging terrain, conditions and emotions
