Parade's end by Susanna White ( Visual )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and German and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set over a tumultuous ten-year period in the early 20th century, this five-hour miniseries tells the story of an honorable Englishman coping with his growing disillusion at the end of a privileged era and the beginning of a new, egalitarian society. As the comfortable certainties of Edwardian England begin to give way to the chaos and destruction of WWI, nobleman Christopher Tietjens puts principles first by marrying Sylvia, a pretty, manipulative socialite who gives birth to a child who may not be his. Christopher endures his new wife's whims and overt indiscretions, foreseeing a cold future with Sylvia at his family's palatial estate, Groby Hall. He finds himself inexorably drawn to a young suffragette, Valentine Wannop, but refuses to give in to their mutual passion or end his marriage with Sylvia, who is alternately infuriated and infatuated by her incorruptible husband. The onset of war, combined with the advent of feminism at home, ushers in far-reaching changes for the English status quo, gradually eroding the constraints that have kept Christopher tethered to his aristocratic past

Her plans are to refurbish the family home and put it on the market.

Who bombed Birmingham? ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1974, six Irishmen were arrested following two bomb attacks on pubs in Birmingham in which 21 people died. The men have always denied any connection with the bombings. This investigative thriller is 100% factually accurate and gives a dramatic reconstruction of events following the bombing of two pubs and the subsequent investigation by World in Action researchers Ian MacBride and Chris Mullin to prove that the 'Birmingham Six' were wrongly convicted. In this thrilling film, the identities of the five IRA men believed to be responsible for the bombings are revealed
The iron lady La dame de fer by Phyllida Lloyd ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher, the first and only female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. One of the 20th century's most famous and influential women, Thatcher came from nowhere to smash through barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male-dominated world
Henry IV by William Shakespeare ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prince Hal, son of King Henry IV, seems to be squandering his life away with the fat knight Sir John Falstaff and the whores, boozers and petty rogues of Eastcheap. But beside these scenes of glorious misrule gathers a nationwide rebellion led by the Duke of Northumberland and his charismatic son, Hotspur
The Queen dai fei yu nu huang ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Queen begins with a familiar epigraph "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"--Henry IV, Part II. The action of the film takes place during the week following the death, on August 31, 1997 of Diana, Princess of Wales. One of its accomplishments, courtesy of adroit use of newsreel and other contemporary footage, is to remind viewers of the deep sadness that surrounded that event. It is also about the divergent and potentially ruinous ways the monarch and Prime Minister Tony Blair responded to the resulting torrent of national grief
