The Sahara : the forgotten history of the world's harshest desert( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary brings to life the Sahara's cruel history and the conflicts that still plague its people. It recounts the story of kings who once led caravans of 30,000 people across the desert, bearing riches beyond imagination. It tells of Roman death squads that exterminated the citizens of the Empire's most bitter rival and how the Foreign Legion crafted a legend out of last stands and lost causes. From the fabled metropolis of Timbuktu to the shores of Tripoli, this film is an illuminating exploration of this unforgiving and remote land of myth and mirage. Also included is a bonus disc that examines the lives of two men -- T.E. Lawrence and Erwin Rommel -- who shaped the desert's modern history and were themselves forever changed by the Sahara

Henry Ford( Visual )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He made the automobile accessible to the common man, while the common man made him uncommonly rich. Henry Ford was one of the great innovators of his time. When the car he invented became so popular he couldn't build them fast enough, he devised the modern assembly plant to meet the overwhelming demand. In this in-depth program, Biography, profiles the life of the industrial giant who was known for both his inventiveness and his occasional intolerance. Interviews with former workers and family members point out his genius and eccentricities, while automotive historians trace his monumental career, from his first hand-built car to his introduction of the V-8 engine at an age when most men had already long retired. Henry Ford : Tin Lizzy tycoon is the fascinating story behind the man whose foresight and vision ushered America into a period of epic change" -- Conteneur
