    Rome: Power & Glory Collection - World History Video.
    Boxed Gift Set. DVD. 6 Hours. As seen on The Learning Channel, narrated by Peter Coyote. Disc #1: The Rise - The stage is set for a grand epic of war and conquest. The Rise first sorts fact from fiction in the legends surrounding the birth of the mighty Empire. Famous stories and myths come to life: Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers whose violent battles led to the city's founding; the Romans' rebellion against their Etruscan rulers; and Rome's rape of the Sabine women. This is also the story of the city as its influence spreads throughout the Mediterranean and it grows from a primitive village into the republic based upon the most formidable system the Western world has ever known: democracy. Disc #2: Legions of Conquest - The Romans were the most successful warriors in history, rising from an amateur citizens' army to develop into the formidable legions that conquered the Western world and beyond, including Scipio's defeat of Hannibal's army and Julius Caesar's march on Rome. This is also the story of how fighting within the ranks, and expansion, proved to be the military's undoing. Disc #3: Seduction of Power - From the first peaceful elections to the corruption surrounding bids for total imperial rule, this story about the lust for power is filled with memorable characters. Julius Caesar makes a bid for lifetime power and provokes his own brutal assassination. Ocatavian takes the name Augustus and declares himself the first Emperor of Rome. Caligula proclaims his ultimate devotion...to his horse! This program traces the wantonness, madness and treachery that ultimately permeated the leadership of Rome. Disc #4: Grasp of Empire - Rome appropriated the best that the civilizations it ruled over had to offer, and spread its culture throughout the West. Efficient cities were built and paved roads were laid down between them. But such progress came at a price. While Romans initially welcomed their conquered peoples into the Empire, they eventually began enslaving them. By the 1st Century, A.D., one in three Romans was a slave. Taxes grew unbearable for the common man and the gap between rich and poor widened. The seeds were being sown for Rome's eventual fall. Disc #5: The Cult of Order - Rome was once one of history's most tolerant societies, welcoming bull worshippers from Iran, fertility sects from Egypt and rain god worshippers from Germany. But with unrest amongst rulers, the Roman people took solace in what was until then a marginal religious cult--Christianity. When the Emperor Diocletian perceived his subjects' beliefs as a threat, he unleashed waves of persecution that left thousands dead. This violence ironically resulted in martyrdoms that only fueled Christianity's growth. Disc #6: The Fall - Eccentric rulers, crippling taxes, rampant poverty and weakening borders are gradually diminishing the Empire's integrity. As Romans distract themselves with endless games, their enemies draw nearer and social unrest threatens to reach a boiling point. Emperor Constantine moves the capital east to Constantinople, abandoning the Western Empire. Rome limps along for several more decades, her glory faded, but the civilization's spirit lives on; Rome's achievements have inspired countless generations in the centuries since her fall.

    Extraordinary Animals - Animal Video.
    Boxed Gift Set. DVD. 11 Hours. Disc #1: Waddlers and Paddlers - Program 1: The World of Penguins - What bird in its right mind would give up flying to learn how to swim? Penguins did that millions of years ago, but they have been a wild success ever since, becoming graceful swimmers and adapting themselves to a wide range of environments, from the bitter cold of the Antarctic to the scorching heat of the equator. While they stiffly and comically waddle when making their way across land, this engrossing program helps you to look past the stereotypes to see the resourcefulness of these "strange birds." Every penguin species seems to have its own challenges to overcome, but none is more amazing that that of the Emperor penguins, who travel to the polar ice region every year to mate. Taking off to find food, the females leave their eggs with the more blubbery males, who spend the dark, Antarctic winter keeping them warm--without having a thing to eat. This fascinating and delightful program is as refreshing as a blast of Arctic air. Program 2: A Sea Otter Story: Warm Hearts and Cold Water - The sea otter learns everything from its mom, who is among the most patient and nurturing parents in the wild. But what happens if a furry, playful little otter pup loses its mother? This program takes you to California's Monterey Bay Aquarium, where a special group is trying to train otter orphans for survival in the wild. Staff members serve as surrogate moms, nuzzling these charming creatures, showing them how to dive for food, and teaching them the otter practice of using rocks as tools. Six to eight months later, they release them back into the wild and hope for the best. But can pups, no matter how smart, really learn from humans? Will they eventually transmit that knowledge to their offspring? Like a great thriller, this touching story keeps you in its grip waiting for the answers. Disc #2: Antarctica - Program 1: The End of the Earth - Prepare yourself for a full blast of this fierce, remote, and astonishingly beautiful part of the Earth that wreaked havoc on the legendary Shackleton Expedition, as well as other expeditions that adventured to Antarctica. You will look directly into the face of the Katabatic, the downward-sloping wind that decimates life, dictates the Earth's weather, and sculpts beautifully massive forms in the ice and snow. Marvel as scientists and explorers alike brave the frightening conditions to uncover "the end of the earth." Program 2: Under Antarctic Ice - Beneath the surface of stunningly cold water, an abundance of lifeforms and icescapes can be found. Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank narrates encounters with jellyfish that have thirty-foot long tentacles, sponges the size of large mammals, killer whales, and more in this fascinating look at what lies in the ocean depths beneath the surface of one of the coldest continents on Earth. Disc #3: Extraordinary Animal Behavior - Program 1: Can Animals Predict Disaster? - The Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004 was one of the worst disasters in human history, with nearly 300,000 people killed. Yet, incredibly, almost all of the animals in the area survived. Did they sense the coming disaster in time to flee? When disaster looms, does the earth send signals that animals can pick up, but humans cannot? Can we harness these skills to save human lives before disaster strikes? Join scientists around the world as they explore these animal omens, and re-examine ancient ideas about how animals can predict disaster, which are now gaining credence in scientific circles. Program 2: Killers in Eden - For nearly 100 years, the Australian coastal town of Eden was the setting for a remarkable collaboration between two species--humans and killer whales--as they joined in hunts for migrating baleen whales. Teams of killer whales would actually herd the plankton-eating baleen whales into the bay at Eden, and notify the whalers that they had arrived with prey by smacking their tails on the water. Then, they would wait for the hunters to arrive with their boats and harpoons to participate in the kill and share in the spoils. Rooted in historical fact and told by members of the community who actually witnessed the hunts, this is a compelling story of interspecies cooperation. Disc #4: The Dolphin Defender - You will be swept away by wildlife filmmaker and ocean conservationist Hardy Jones' compelling and inspiring odyssey into the dolphin universe. Dolphins are Jones' life's work. What started as a quest to communicate with these beautiful, friendly, and intelligent creatures became a twenty-five-year crusade to protect dolphins against man's greed. How effective can a man with a camera be in giving dolphins and killer whales a fighting chance to survive against fisherman's nets, captivity, environmental destruction, and horrific, senseless killings? Disc #5: Ocean Wonders - Program 1: Encountering Sea Monsters - Enter the gloomy green ocean depths with deep-sea cameraman Bob Cranston to discover fantastic worlds and the beautiful but deadly creatures that inhabit them. Nothing in science fiction can prepare you for a creature with a beak like a parrot, no bones in its body, three hearts, blue blood, skin that can change colors, and arms growing out of its lips! Cranston enlists the help of scientists and experts to enter the world of squid and octopus, where cannibalism is practiced daily, mating can involve amputation, trickery is everywhere, and size means everything and nothing. Tim Matheson (Animal House) narrates this tense and thrilling program. Program 2: Oceans of Glass: Monterey Bay Aquarium - How does an aquarium work? What is the science behind the magic? Monterey Bay Aquarium is recognized as one of the most significant and spectacular aquariums in the world. Its pioneering displays of realistic undersea environments entertain and educate two million annual visitors. Emmy-winning actor Peter Coyote (E.T.) narrates this intriguing program that offers a rare glimpse at the complex operations required to create and maintain the magical exhibits of more than 35,000 animals and plants, and chronicles how the aquarium successfully exhibited a great white shark for a record-breaking 198 days. Disc #6: Pandas - Program 1: Pandas of the Sleeping Dragon - With its furry white head, black-ringed eyes, and look of perpetual amusement, the great panda bear has lumbered into the hearts of people around the world. Unfortunately, this endangered creature may be making its last stand in habitats like the bamboo forest in China's "Mountains of the Sleeping Dragon." NATURE's George Page leads you through this misty and exotic land, catching the panda in its most frequent activity: foraging for and crunching on bamboo shoots. China has named these gentle animals a national treasure, and this intimate and charming close-up shows you why. Program 2: The Panda Baby - The San Diego Zoo faced a bear of a challenge: becoming the first place outside China to successfully breed and raise a panda in captivity. Would the zoo be able to gain the full cooperation of panda experts at China's Wolong Conservation Center? And what would it do about its potential father bear--an older panda with little interest in procreation? Actor Matthew Modine tells a fascinating, cross-cultural, inter-species story that offers dramatic twists and turns as well as surprising insights into panda mating, reproduction, and "child care." In bringing up baby, the zoo raises hopes and fears for the future of all endangered species.

Disc #3: The Yukon Gold Rush Trail - Three gold strikes sent thousands scrambling for the frozen gold fields of the far north between 1896 and 1903. Driven by optimism and gullibility, many found only ruin. Tom retraces their eager steps from Seattle to the Inside Passage along the Alaskan coastline and Skagway. Disc #4: The Old Post Road - Early roads were lifelines thrown across deep wilderness to the isolated residents of colonial America's far-flung settlements. The Old Post Road carried supplies, mail and exhausted travelers through 300 miles of wild backcountry between Boston and New York in the 1600s. Disc #5: The River Road & The Natchez Trace - Riverboat-men used The River Road and Natchez Trace for their up-river return trip from New Orleans.
