Beauty( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dan Cruickshank explores the theme of beauty in architecture in this program, from the beauty of nature's simplicity to that of extreme ornamentation. Dan goes to Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland, where he builds an igloo and learns about Inuit culture; Leshan, China, home of the ancient Giant Buddha, the largest of its kind; Russia's Catherine Palace, a masterpiece of Baroque architecture; the Sun Temple in Konarak, India, full of erotic statues that are still shocking today
Connections by William Cotten( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do some communities thrive while others fail? Dan looks for answers in this program, with stops in Brasilia, a Brazilian city built by communists but now the preserve of the super-rich; Damascus, Syria, believed to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world; Rockefeller Center in New York City, born out of the Great Depression and still going strong; and Mumbai's Dharavi section - the biggest slum in India, but a vibrant home to millions with its own active economy and now under threat of demolition. A BBC Production
Power( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fantasies of dictators, kings, sultans, and warriors are laid bare in this program as Dan Cruikshank explores architecture as a statement of worldly power. Dan visits Nicolae Ceauescu's palace in Romania, a colossal edifice built by the 20th century's last communist dictator; Marqab Castle in Syria, constructed by the Crusaders to control the area between Asia Minor and the Holy Land; an imposing plantation house in New Orleans that stands in stark contrast to nearby slave cabins; and the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, a place where women, too, were slaves-but where they could also give birth to the country's next emperor
Pleasure( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this program, Dan Cruickshank considers the aesthetic pleasures of opulent architecture. He goes to the ultra-luxurious Taj Hotel in Mumbai, India, a spectacular fusion of Eastern and Western influences; Bavaria's Neuschwanstein Castle, built as a retreat for King Ludwig II; the Amazon Theatre, an exquisite Belle Époque-era opera house in the middle of the Brazilian rainforest; and the Villa Barbaro in northern Italy, designed by Renaissance master Andrea Palladio, one of the most influential architects of all time
Dreams : theater of the night( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cites are functional models of community life, but they can also represent the aspirations of the culture that creates them. In this program, Dan travels to Yemen to see the tower houses of Shibam, built vertically to conserve land and to remain safe against attack; to Santo Domingo, founded in the 16th century on a grid-style plan that served as the blueprint for a new empire in the New World; to Bhutan, where even recently-constructed buildings are indistinguishable from those raised centuries before; and to Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary, an 18th-century prison based on the ideal of reform

Empire by Jeremy Paxman( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making sense of modern Britain is a tough call. But the explanation, more often than not, lies in the British Empire. Jeremy Paxman believes that unless the British come to terms with their Imperial past, theyll never understand who they are and where they're going today. In this five-part series, he cuts through the British national embarrassment, turning his forensic and unapologetic gaze on to this most compelling period of our history and tracing its far-reaching influence on the present
Making a Fortune( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

God, glory, and gold--among those three motives for conquest, there's little doubt about which shines brightest. This program shows how Britain's hegemony began as a priates' treasure hunt, grew into a loosely aligned realm based on trade, and developed into not only an empire but a global financial network. Viewers travel from Jamaica, where sugar made plantation owners rich on the backs of African slaves, to Calcutta, where British traders became the new princes of India. The film then heads to Hong Kong, where British-supplied opium fueled colonization and economic dominance. Unfair trading helped spark the independence movement in India, led by Mahatma Gandhi; in a former cotton-spinning town in Lancashire, viewers meet two women who remember Gandhi's extraordinary visit in 1931
