33 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 2,407 libraries worldwide
In this edition of Moyers & Company, Dave Zirin, sports correspondent for The Nation, joins Bill to discuss the intersection of sports, politics, and greed. Should college athletes get paid? Should taxpayers bankroll new stadiums that benefit wealthy team owners? The vast gap between sports tycoons and the everyday fans who shell out hard-earned cash to watch their athlete heroes is yet another reflection of the gross inequality between the 1 percent and the rest of society. "In so many different ways," says Zirin, "sports stories are stories of American life in the 21st century." Also, in an essay regarding Syria, Bill predicts that those inside the Beltway may ultimately be grateful that the public raised their voices, said no to an airstrike, and pulled us back from the brink of war

In this program, Bill Moyers talks with the acclaimed memoirist, journalist, and social critic about the ways race, culture, class, and religion are reshaping the concept of identity in America today.

The film spotlights fully modernized public transportation and recycling systems, a "Citizenship Street" zoning pattern that reduces high-volume traffic, an oil collection program that transforms used cooking grease into biofuel, and other successful initiatives. But the need for a waste-for-food exchange program demonstrates that even Curitiba must still contend with poverty and other social challenges

This Prelinger Archives film shows how the American railroad system developed and illustrates the vital role of train transportation in the economy of the 1950s. With enthusiastic narration and patriotic music, the film presents high-energy scenes of railroad technology in action, from its rather primitive-looking original forms to the thundering diesel-pulled trains that captured the imaginations of 1950s youth. Two young children are at the center of the narrative, traveling cross-country in a sleeping car and learning all about the railroad's various uses--hauling passengers, agricultural products, manufactured goods, raw materials, even mail. "Train travel," says the narrator, "is almost like watching a motion picture--one of the most interesting motion pictures you can possibly imagine!
