Constantine's sword ( visu )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 784 libraries worldwide
Uses Carroll's earlier book of the same title (c2001) as a departure point. The book discusses relations exclusively between the Catholic Church and the Jews, arguing that the Church has been antisemitic from the moment of its founding. The film incorporates much of that research, but expands the scope to discuss religious intolerance by all Christian denominations of all non-Christian denominations. The film also discusses modern political and social issues pertaining to religion, including intolerance towards Muslims, the influence of the evangelical movement, and separation of church and state

The End of the beginning ( visu )
4 editions published between 1991 and 2018 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
The attempted coup against Mikhail Gorbachev in August 1991, should have been no surprise. There was bitterness of the hardliners-determined to prevent-the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Communist Party-openly attacking Gorbachev, the failure of his economic reforms leading to demonstrations that alarmed Conservatives, the agitation for sovereignty in the republics and Gorbachev's compromise with Boris Yeltsin further enraging reactionaries. As the legacy of the first Russian Revolution was being discarded, the right wingers moved against the man who had become a victim of his own revolution

As long as there is life by Bill Jersey( visu )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
(Critical) This program portrays the hospital departure of a terminally ill mother of two young children. Family and the function of the hospice team are depicted and the importance of volunteers in providing home care is emphasized. The hospice roles are ambiguous; the characters are not identified; the physical care given the patient is terrible; and neither the children's emotional problems nor the patient's confusion are fully considered. Unfortunately, the educational objectives and purpose of the film are not specified. The visual quality is good, but the audio quality is unclear, probably because this portrays real people dealing with death. The study guide outlines suggestions for stimulating discussion. As an accurate but poor example of hospice care, this program is recommended for limited use only

Chronique de l'histoire de deux familles irlando-américaines très différentes qui ont chacune atteint la célébrité dans les années 1930. Les Kennedys furent toujours considérés comme une "famille royale américaine", surtout après que le patriarche Joseph P., un millionnaire autodidacte, fut nommé ambassadeur en Angleterre. Lorsque John F. devint le premier président irlandais catholique des États-Unis, les souvenirs de la famine de la patate et le stigmatisme religieux étaient choses du passé. Mais Joseph P. insistait pour qu'on se rappelle de lui et de sa famille comme des Américains assimilés. En contraste, le dramaturge Eugene O'Neil insistait toujours sur ses racines irlandaises, dans la vie et dans son oeuvre, préférant toujours revivre l'amère lutte de sa famille pour demeurer Irlandaise en Amérique. Les deux modèles de famille furent une réussite
