    CYRENE Libya - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Cyrene, the 'Athens of Africa', is an ancient city on the slopes of the green mountain of Kyrenaika, a coastal region in eastern Libya. A kind of natural canyon connects the lower city with the upper city that originated later. In the rock walls of the canyons, on the same level as the lower city, are a number of well preserved caves in which the Greeks had their baths. These bathing places contained niches and annexes and were supplied with water by the Apollon Spring of Kyre. The Forum became the centre of city life, built above a Greek agora and surrounded by temples and monuments, like that of the Greek Ship Monument that was erected following a successful battle at sea, with the winged goddess of victory, Nike, on the bow of a stone ship. The ruins of Cyrene have survived for thousands of years and continue to fascinate with all the intriguing mystique of antiquity.

    GHAT Libya - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Ghat is the only large oasis in the southwest of Libya and once an important caravan stop at the junction of several caravan routes. Even today, it is an important centre for the Tuareg of this region. Today, the historic old town is uninhabited but its stone walls and air-dried mud tiles still remain. The striking white minaret of a mosque dominates the town. It was once the official residence of the Ottoman governor of Ghat and also served as a refuge in which the town's inhabitants sought shelter when there was danger of attack. The first written documents of Ghat date back to the middle of the nineteenth century, when the Turks overthrew the town and appointed a governor. The inland remained in the hands of the Tuareg and the Orares, Iforas and Imanrasates tribes. Ghat has always been the centre for the Tuareg in this remote region and today, they transport tourists through the desert on all-terrain vehicles! Ghat is a precious legacy of our civilisation and one that hopefully will continue to survive for many years to come.

    Totems - Travel Video.
    DVD. African Secrets. 30 Minutes. Totems are symbols of identity represented by living things. One’s totem could be a buffalo, a sheep, a lion, an elephant, a leg (of any animal) or a heart (also of any animal). Consequently, one is supposed to revere one’s totem such that it is taboo to eat one’s totem or do anything that denigrates the supposedly sacred symbol. In olden days, any denigration of one’s totem was believed to invite dire consequences such as ill fortune, sickness and - in extreme cases - death. This episode of African Secrets seeks to unravel the mystery and myth behind totems through research and one-on-one interviews with cultural gurus and elderly members of society with in-depth knowledge of this age-old belief. The program explores the beliefs, superstitions and controversies associated with totems in the context of the prevailing socio-cultural environment. The story is told by a narrator linking the information gathered in research and the opinions of interviewees. It also gives brief profiles of certain animals or elements of nature from which some common totems are derived.

    GHADAMES Libya - Travel Video
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The desert town of Ghadames is situated in the three country triangle of Libya, Tunisia and Algeria and is tantamount to being an historical oasis that lies within the Libyan desert. The Islamic Cemetery just outside the city gates is an impressive sight and a reminder that the town was once an important centre of the region's caravan trading routes. A seven kilometre long wall surrounds the town that is entered via seven gates. In the corridors and gateways of the local architecture that consists of mud and gypsum, are protective signs in Kufi calligraphy. Saharan art is a mixture of Arab-Islamic, Berber and Byzantine influences. In 1986, the fascinating oasis town, with its long history and age-old traditions was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Although the drawings and paintings on the walls will eventually suffer due to the gradual decay of the mud buildings, Ghadames' cultural legacy will hopefully remain in tact.

    African Wildlife - Travel Video - VHS.
    National Geographic. Witness the realities of birth, death and survival in this vivid encounter with the animal world. "African Wildlife" was filmed in Namibia's Etosha National Park over the course of two years, capturing extraordinary close-ups of animal behavior: a wildebeest giving birth, a zebra mother successfully defending her foal from the swift attack of a cheetah, and a young springbuck alerting his herd to the presence of a predator with stiff-legged leaps. Includes gorgeously spectacular nature footage, much of it shot at shockingly close range. This video takes a relaxed look at a wide selection of wildlife, including zebras, cheetahs, wildebeest, lions, and elephants. The goal is to show all facets of animal life, and scenes of violent encounters between species are balanced with touching scenes of young animals at play. In one stunning sequence, a wildebeest is shown giving birth. Her calf soon stands and takes his first wobbly steps, the informative narration noting that by the end of the day he'll "be running with the herd." Rare footage of a lioness teaching her cubs to finish off a wild pig she has wounded is riveting, as it shows graphically how the lioness will not assist so that her cubs, clumsy though they are, will learn to kill on their own. This video would be worth watching just for the exquisite cinematography, but its thoughtful organization and intelligent narration make it both a visual treat and an education in how animals really live on the African plains. 60 minutes
