Fantômas I - À l'ombre de la guillotine (with sub-titles in English)

"Aka "Fantômas". "Fantômas makes it as the emperor of Crime. First is the robbery at the Royal Palace Hotel. Then he abducts Lord Beltham. As Fantômas' fame increases actor Valgrand creates the rôle of public enemy No.1 on stage. Eventually Inspector Juve, with a little help from Fandor, arrests Fantômas and he is soon sentenced to die on the guillotine." Directed by Louis Feuillade, written by Louis Feuillade, based on Marcel Allain and Pierre Souvestre's novel "Fantômas", 1913.
























The Inspector General (1949)

"An American musical comedy based on the satirical play by Nikolai Gogol that deals with local corruption and a case of mistaken identity in early 19th century Russia. Its ambiguous sets and costumes places the study somewhere in Eastern Europe during Napoleonic rule. Perhaps because the film was produced during the onset of the Cold War, the vagueness of the setting might indicate that the producers did not want to make a comedy about Russia. This vehicle for Danny Kaye reduced the biting satire and increased the music for American audiences."
























Viy (in Russian, for my dear friend Father Lawrence)

"A young priest is ordered to preside over the wake of a witch in a small old wooden church of a remote village. This means spending three nights alone with the corpse with only his faith to protect him.

"Леонид Куравлев ("Афоня", "Не может быть!") и Наталья Варлей ("Кавказская пленница, или новые приключения Шурика", "Гостья из будущего") в фильме "Вий". Мистическая фантазия, родившаяся в воображении Гоголя и воплощенная на экране одним из самых "сказочных" кинорежиссеров Александром Птушко (художественный руководитель постановки и разработчик трюков), ничуть не устарела, не потеряла своей яркости и вовсе не спроста называется фильмом ужасов. Бурсаку и Хоме - как и нам с вами - придется натерпеться страху, пока гуляет в украинской ночи неугомонная нечисть..."

It is a famous story by Nikolai Gogol.
























Category of Terror

"Ralph Schoenman has been at the center of political analysis for over 25 years. He specializes in the Middle East as he was a first-hand witness to the 1982 attack on Lebanon. Ralph does two weekly shows on independant radio. One show is called Guns and Butter, the other is Taking Aim. He hosts both with his partner Mya Shone. I highly recommend Schoenman as he has the uncanny knack of cramming lots of info into a short amount of time."
























Sierra Club Chronicles: The Day the Water Died

"March 24, 1989 will forever plague history as one of the worst environmental disasters of our time. Eleven million gallons of oil spilled into the Prince William Sound killing thousands of wildlife and destroying a complex and delicate ecosystem. Exxon promised they would clean up the spill and promised that those affected would get their lives back. Sixteen years later and the people are still waiting for their lives to become "whole" again.

"Ross Mullins - commercial fisherman and Cordova businessman, Dune Lankard - Eyak tribesman and environmental activist, Riki Ott - marine biologist and former commercial fisherman, are among many others who describe the historic the spill, the immediate emotional impact it had on them, and how, 16 years later, Exxon has still not paid the court-ordered punitive damages."

A Rough History Of Disbelief - Part Three

"Part three - The Final Hour: The history of disbelief continues with the ideas of self-taught philosopher Thomas Paine, the revolutionary studies of geology and the evolutionary theories of Darwin. Jonathan Miller looks at the Freudian view that religion is a 'thought disorder'. He also examines his motivation behind making the series touching on the issues of death and the religious fanaticism of the 21st century."
























The Late Edition

"The Late Edition is the UK's version of The Daily Show. Unlike the US show, none of the language is censored and, perhaps more refreshingly, the audience doesn't constantly interrupt the more pithy insults of government with mindless whoops and cheers no matter how clever or lame the gag being cracked."

Atlantis in the Andes

"This documents the work of an English cartographer/satellite photo interpreter named Jim Allen - who has taken the two dialogues that Plato wrote about Atlantis literally. He has used modern technology and his understanding of ancient measurement systems to locate and area of the world that he believes matches Plato's physical descriptions of Atlantis. In a nutshell, he places the capitol of the empire in Bolivia - and he believes that the entire continent of South America is, in fact, Atlantis. He does have an interesting theory - and he has found some remarkable evidence to strengthen his claim."

"Focusing on the men of the Cold War on whom Dr Strangelove was based. These were people who believed that the world could be controlled by the scientific manipulation of fear - mathematical geniuses employed by the American Rand Corporation. In the end, their visions were the stuff of science fiction fantasy."
























A Rough History Of Disbelief - Part Two

"Part two - Noughts and Crosses: With the domination of Christianity from 500 AD, Jonathan Miller wonders how disbelief began to re-emerge in the 15th and 16th centuries. He discovers that division within the Church played a more powerful role than the scientific discoveries of the period. He also visits Paris, the home of the 18th century atheist, Baron D'Holbach, and shows how politically dangerous it was to undermine the religious faith of the masses."
























The Mysterious Origins of Man

"Has humanity existed on our planet for much longer than science has previously thought? This controversial program explores evidence that goes against traditional historical thought and theories surrounding our human origins. Most Archeologists ignore the artifacts and human fossils found in rock millions of years old. Explore the facts that science refuses to acknowledge."
