Most widely held works by Eagle Rock Entertainment
Ancient India ( visu )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 436 libraries worldwide
The antecedents of modern Indian culture can be traced back to the Harappan civilization, which flourished between 2300 and 1500 BC in what are now Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Aryan tribes from the Russian steppes invaded the subcontinent in 1000 BC, bringing their language and culture. The resulting synthesis between the Aryan and Indian civilizations brought forth a unique society that included a caste system, which soon became entrenched. This program examines the religious tension between Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam, and the historical events that shaped the great Indian civilizations, from the Mauryan Empire through the Mogul Empire. Maps and scholars provide insight into a culture that remains vibrant and diverse today
Aztecs : exposition of a culture ( visu )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 432 libraries worldwide
Aztec myth prophesied that a great city would one day stand on the site where an eagle, perched on a cactus with a serpent in its mouth, was found. Today, Mexico City stands on this mythical site. Although the Aztec Empire fell on April 28, 1521, when Hernando Cortes and his army defeated Montezuma, traces of the thousand-year-old pre-Columbian empire still survive and influence world culture. This program explores Aztec culture and history, from the role of human sacrifice in the Aztec religion to their agricultural advances. Commentary by scholars, maps, and contemporary accounts provide an overview of the events that both shaped and destroyed an empire
Ancient Rome by Andrew Schlessinger( visu )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 413 libraries worldwide
At its zenith, the Roman Empire included North Africa, Spain, France, and Britain. The wealth that these conquests generated allowed Roman citizens to live in a sumptuous world of beautifully decorated homes and opulent cities. In this program, scholars discuss Roman unification of Europe, Roman culture and institutions, and the family structure. The role of the army as a major force in Roman society and politics, along with its military structure and tactics, are discussed. The Christianization of Rome and the enduring legacy of Roman Law and institutions in Western government today are also analyzed. 3-D re-creations of the Coliseum and Pompeii allow students to see Rome as it was before the empire collapsed
Native Americans : celebrating traditions ( visu )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 385 libraries worldwide
This program explores the many similarities among tribal nations, including a profound respect for nature, myth, and tradition; matriarchal governance; a communal lifestyle; a belief in an afterlife; and the use of pictographs, symbols, and patterns rather than an alphabet-based language. Also featured are brief scenes of re-created warfare
Ancient Greece by Victoria( visu )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 357 libraries worldwide
Whether looking at Western language, history, or institutions, no other civilization has so greatly influenced our contemporary world. This program re-creates the Greek world, from the morning market to the evening symposiums, from burial rituals to the Olympics. Beginning with Homer's account of the Trojan War, this program explores Greek civilization using 3-D re-creations of the Parthenon and Agora, maps, and commentary by scholars to provide insight into the daily lives of Greek citizens
Ancient Egypt by Egypt( visu )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 347 libraries worldwide
For almost 3,000 years, the pharaohs ruled a civilization that was arguably the grandest of the ancient world. This program sheds new light on this enigmatic empire, offering information on the construction of the pyramids; the god-kings, including the only female pharaoh, Hatshepsut; the Rosetta Stone; religions and cults; mummification and burial rites; and the treasures of Tutankhamen. Interviews with noted Egyptologists, a professor from Cairo University, the chief inspector at the archaeological digs at Gaza, and the son of the guide who led Howard Carter to the tomb of Tutankhamen
Ladies & gentlemen : the Rolling Stones by Rolling Stones( visu )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
Filmed in Texas in 1972 over four nights of the 'Exile On Main Street' US tour, it was billed at the time as the most powerful rock film ever made and is considered by many fans to be the finest Rolling Stones performance ever captured on film
The Vikings by Kenneth W Harl( visu )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 339 libraries worldwide
Studies the effects of Viking aggressions on the history of Europe, their attacks upon the Church, their art and society and the activity of the Viking longboats in the development of European trade
Ancient Britons ( visu )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 296 libraries worldwide
In this program, experts explore the history of the British Isles from the ice age of 30,000 years ago to pre-Celtic times in search of evidence of the ancient Britons-the Neolithic "Dawn People. From Orkney to Wessex, their ancient societies left enough archaeological evidence to answer some questions-and to raise others. This has prompted much speculation about Stonehenge, the nature of the Britons' religious beliefs and rituals, and the extent of their geometrical and astronomical knowledge. Monuments and mysteries appear to be the chief legacies of those who dwelt during the dawn of civilization in ancient Britain
The Mayans ( visu )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
The most advanced of the pre-Hispanic peoples of Central America, the Mayans rose to great prominence, only to suddenly decline around the year AD 900. In this program, cultural historian Iain Grain delves into Mayan history, investigating topics such as the Mayans' mastery of mathematics, their extremely hierarchical society, their use of human sacrifice to induce rain, and Mayan art. Many examples of Mayan architecture are provided as well, plus a computer re-creation of the temple at Chichen Itza. Although there are still more than two million native Mayans living in Central America, the exact origins of their ancestors and the fate of the ancient Mayan cities remain mysteries
The Celts ( visu )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
Nearly 3,000 years ago, those who first mastered iron became the first masters of Europe: the Celts. This program documents the Hallstatt and La Tene Celts, separating them from myth and legend. Historians and scholars discuss the history, values, and lifestyle of this warrior society, exploring topics that include the roles of the druids, bards, and seers; the political hierarchy in Celtic society; and human sacrifice. Battle reenactments are also featured, contrasting the methods of warfare preferred by the Celts to their Roman adversaries. The Celtic influence on the ethnic languages of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and Britanny is also documented
Geoffrey Chaucer : the Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer( visu )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 288 libraries worldwide
Written in the 14th century, The Canterbury Tales has stood the test of time as a landmark in the development of English literature. This innovative "frame story" owes its classic standing and impact to the diversity both of the narrators and of the styles of tales they tell. In this program, expert commentators Dr. Christiania Whitehead and Dr. Peter Mack, both of the University of Warwick, discuss the tradition of 14th-century poetry, the General Prologue, Chaucer's social grouping of the pilgrims and the themes they explore, and the poem as a reflection of Medieval English society. Dramatic reenactments of the pilgrims on horseback and numerous period images help bring the tales to life
Pink Floyd : the making of The dark side of the moon by Pink Floyd (Musical group)( visu )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 275 libraries worldwide
A track-by-track look at the making of the band's 1973 album
Othello : a critical guide by William Shakespeare( visu )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 273 libraries worldwide
Compelling dramatizations of key scenes from Shakespeare's tragedy are analyzed by two noted Shakespearean experts-Stanley Wells and Russell Jackson of the Shakespeare Institute, Stratford-upon-Avon. Themes and topics include the motives of Lago, and whether his evil is as complete as most commentators suggest; Victorian objections to the interracial relationship between Othello and Desdemona; evidence of racism within Shakespeare's characterization of Othello; the role of opposing forces (good and evil) in relationships and events; Desdemona as victim or manipulative conniver, responsible for her own downfall; Othello as victim, ruled by emotion rather than logic; the conflict between Othello's identity as a Christian commander of the Venetian force and as a social and racial outsider; and the use of women as characters vital to plot development
The Normans by Robert Bartlett( visu )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 272 libraries worldwide
To William, the Duke of Normandy, England was "Angleterre" or the Old French equivalent-and in 1066 the country became as French as William could make it. This program describes the Norman invasion that ended Anglo-Saxon rule, summarizes William the Conqueror's transformative reign, and profiles the six rulers who followed him. How Henry I wrested the crown from his brothers and solidified royal authority, how Stephen of Blois succeeded instead of Henry's own son, how Richard Coeur de Lion fulfilled chivalric ideals but as a king fared no better than his hapless brother John-these and other accounts compose a lively proto-history of England's "foreign" royalty
Peter the Great by Michael Roulstone( visu )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 272 libraries worldwide
Emperor of All the Russias, Peter the Great launched the transformation of his nation from a medieval society into a Western-style European power. Expert analysis by Professor Lindsay Hughes, of London University's School of Slavonic and Eastern Studies, and historian Dr. David Moon-plus lush dramatizations of Peter as a child and an adult-emphasizes his sweeping reforms in the areas of government, military science, industry, commerce, education, culture, and even religion. From Peter's fascination with all things Western, to his convoluted ascension to the throne, to his victory in the Great Northern War, this program neatly sums up the fascinating life of one of European history's most dynamic figures
The Stuarts ( visu )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 272 libraries worldwide
The death of Queen Elizabeth foreshadowed a power struggle between parliament and the monarchy. This program begins with the crowning of James I-whose policies made the confrontation inevitable-and documents five generations of tumultuous Stuart governance. Sifting through the complex mixture of financial crisis and mounting religious factionalism that characterized Jacobean England, the program describes the eruption of the Civil War, the execution of Charles I, the heavy-handed authority of Cromwell, and the legacy of the prolonged conflict: an enthusiastic return to monarchy and a general distaste among the English for political extremism. (46 minutes)
Monty python ( visu )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The legendary British comedy troupe Monty Python are all gathered in front of the camera one last time in this original documentary series that retells the entire Python phenomenon start to finish
