Ludwig van Beethoven by Jeremy Siepmann( file )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and German and held by 349 libraries worldwide
For many people, Beethoven is the greatest composer who ever lived. In this portrait-in-sound, actors' readings combine with his music to reveal a titanic personality, vulnerable and belligerent, comic and tragic, and above all heroic, as he comes to grips with perhaps the greatest disability a musician can suffer. No man's music is more universal; few men's lives are more inspiring. In every sense but one - his modest height - he was a giant. The great bonus of this audio-biography is that the development of Beethoven's music can be heard in the context of his life. What did he write in those early, ambitious years when he was at the peak of his musical powers? What did he write when beset with anxiety over his failing hearing? And what was the music that insisted on pouring out of him, even though he couldn't hear it himself?

Edge of darkness by Martin Campbell( visu )
22 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 145 libraries worldwide
This television mini-series follows a British police inspector's investigation into his daughter's murder, drawing him, via her involvement in a radical ecology group, into a multi-national corporation's underground nuclear facility which produces weapons-grade plutonium for the British and American governments. Filmed with a constantly moving camera, extreme close-ups, a densely layered soundtrack and effective use of cross cutting, this is a superior political thriller drawing on both film noir and psychodrama: the ghost of the daughter reappears as a kind of Oedipal obsession, in effect proposing nuclear peril as the punishment a blinded patriarchy inflicts on itself for its unconscious desires
