Connections 1 [5- Disc Set]

This ten volume series was made in 1978 by turning science into a detective story, James Burke creates a series that will fascinate students and adults alike. This interdisciplinary approach has never before been applied to history or science and it succeeds tremendously. Winner of the Red Ribbon in the American Film Festival, the scope of the series covers 19 countries and 150 locations, requiring over 14 months of filming. As the Sherlock Holmes of science, Burke tracks through 12,000 years of history for the clues that lead us to eight great life changing inventions-the atom bomb, telecommunications, the computer, the production line, jet aircraft, plastics, rocketry and television. Burke postulates that such changes occur in response to factors he calls triggers, some of them seemingly unrelated. These have their own triggering effects, causing change in totally unrelated fields as well. And so the connections begin...

Connections 2

The favorite of students and educators everywhere, James Burke the scientific detective is back tracking the fascinating links between technological invention, social history, economics, and, well, everything. Life is a giant 3-dimensional globe made up of millions of threads that cross and recross each other, says Burke as he traces the lines that lead from a French loom to IBM, from a kink in a water pipe to a carburetor. He makes two dozen international stops by way of explaining how the steam pump led to carbon paper, to the entire Industrial revolution and the moon landing, with drill bits, X-rays and genetic engineering along the way; says New York Newsday. In one half-hour! Your head spins, but its the same as splendid champagne. TV is rarely this tasty or this smart, and hardly ever both in such a whiz-bang package. Programs in this series: Disc 1: Revolutions Disvover how the steam engine led to safety matches, imitation diamonds and the moon in a wild ride. Sentimental Journeys What has Freud got to do with maps: Or prison reform with blue dye? Or the inside of a star with the Himalayas: India reveals the answers. Getting It Together Start by examining a SWAT team, which leads to hot air ballooning, the root of many inventions. Whodunit? Who stole a set of billard bal...

Russian Espionage and International Intelligence Gathering: Cuban Connections (1981)

Russian Espionage and International Intelligence Gathering: Cuban Connections (1981)

The KGB was an effective, but often brutal, military intelligence gathering agency, which dissolved in the early 1990s, not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall. "Cuban Connections," documents the KGB, exploring their operations in Cuba and the United States. The DGI, or the Cuban intelligence agency, is also dissected, proving the Cubans were run, not only by Fidel Castro, but by the communist Russians, who had financed espionage in Cuba since the 1960s. The documentary is a startling, somewhat slanted, look at government espionage and operations and focuses on the history, organization and operations of the KGB.
