Israël et les Arabes 1948-2005 by Norma Percy( visu )

Cette série documentaire nous dévoile les dessous des politiques arabes et israéliennes à travers les voix de leurs principaux acteurs, celles des chefs d'Etats, Premiers ministres, responsables politiques et militaires, mais aussi celles des instigateurs des attentats-suicides et des assassinats. Ils nous révèlent les arrières des coulisses lorsque les négociations de paix s'effondrent et que la violence explose. Ces témoignages contredisent l'image habituelle de l'hostilité implacable de la totalité du monde arabe envers Israël. Le film relate en effet un nombre incroyablement élevé de rencontres secrètes de part et d'autre des lignes de front et ce depuis plus de cinquante ans.DVD 1 : 1948-1998: la guerre de 50 ans. DVD 2 : 1999-2005 : une guerre intarissable

For a year after his election as leader of the U.S.S.R., Mikhail Gorbachev tried to bring about greater freedom of information, i.e., glasnost. This episode shows the attempts to cover up details of the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986. It also deals with the anti-Stalin crusade, and the release of one of the many banned films about the Stalin era, "Repentance". One of Stalin's legacies was the large number of political prisoners, the best known being Andrei Sakharov, who was now released. Gorbachev called Stalin a criminal, and the press began an anti-Stalin campaign

The Second Russian Revolution began effectively with Mikhail Gorbachev's election as General Secretary of the Communist Party in March 1985. This episode describes how he got there in the face of bitter resistance from the Party's old guard. In 1983 the dying Yuri Andropov named Gorbachev as his successor, but a conspiracy of conservatives suppressed the nomination. The man nominated was K.U. Chernenko. When he died in 1985, Gorbachev won the nomination because two of his key opponents were out of the country

Mikhail Gorbachev called the election for the new Congress of People's Deputies for the spring of 1989. Election fever gripped the people. All over the Soviet Union Communist Party candidates were defeated by radicals. When civil unrest began in Georgia, local Party officials called for troops to quell it. In the ensuing disturbances, 20 civilians were killed by troops in Tbilisi. On the opening day's session of the Congress, the Deputies demanded how this happened. Tbilisi became a rallying cry, and large demonstrations were held outside the Kremlin each day. Soviet miners now joined the "revolution from below" and went on strike. Soviet leaders worried about a chain reaction by other workers

The rise to power of Boris Yeltsin, the Soviet Union's most popular politician, was made possible by perestroika. His election as boss of the Moscow Communist Party elevated him to the Politburo. When he sacked many Moscow Party officials, he was rebuked by Gorbachev, and at the Central Committee meeting in October 1987, he was forced to offer his resignation. After humiliating him at a meeting in November, the Committee removed him from the Moscow Party leadership. Gorbachev gave him an administrative post, and gave up the idea of reforming the Communist Party. Instead, he would try to bring democracy to the people

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"A timely three-part documentary on the fraught history of the Arab-Israeli peace process. The story is told by the key players on all sides - from the redoubtable US Secretary of State, Madeline Albright and charismatic US President Bill Clinton, to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Ministers Ehud Barak and Ariel Sharon, plus their advisors, generals and ministers, as well as organisers of suicide bombings and assassinations. The documentary follows the agonising negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians since 1999, as a shaky truce spirals into violence." -- edited from website
