    Hidden World Of The Bengal Tiger - Travel Video.
    VHS. National Geographic. The battle of the sexes was never this brutal. In National Geographic's "Hidden World of the Bengal Tiger", you'll watch from atop an elephant's back as Lakshmi, a mother tiger, tends to her young in the face of the grave danger posed by her fiercest enemy: a male tiger. The forest is cool, green, and beautiful, and thanks to exceptional cinematography, the viewer seems to melt into the trees as Lakshmi hunts and fends off the stalker. The filmmakers' sympathy with their subjects is clear and inevitably the viewer is drawn into the drama of survival in the wild, even the grim beauty of the tiger's kills. Despite this sympathy, there is little temptation to humanize these animals--they aren't people but distant cousins at best, and their feelings and actions are profoundly distinct from our own. These differences provide us unprecedented insight and much to learn from. 60 minutes.

    Swarm: Land Of The Killer Bees - Travel Video.
    VHS. National Geographic. This National Geographic Explorer video follows a clan of "killer" bees on their annual 100-mile migration from one part of India to the footsteps of the Himalaya Mountains. Because they have only a 50-day life span, half of them die along the way, and the fact that some colonies never make it to their destination gives this 50-minute documentary some suspense. Although much is made of their aggressive tendencies and fearsome attacks on humans, the only injuries viewers see are several stings to a scientist when a few bees get inside his netted hat. In fact, the bees face plenty of predators of their own, from spiders that spin webs strong enough to trap small birds to bee-eating birds that cannot be stung. The close-up cinematography provides marvelous views of the habits of and communication between these venomous creatures. And the sight of 100 buzzing colonies in a single tree or the scientist being hoisted into their midst isn't commonplace either. 60 minutes.

    Udaipur India - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Set along an artificial lake and surrounded by picturesque mountains, Udaipur is one of the most beautiful cities in the Indian province of Rajasthan. Part of the Palace Of Udaipur is still inhabited by the present head of the Mewar and other areas within it have been transformed into a luxurious hotel. In recent years innumerable gazebos, balconies and decorations have made the elegant almost playful eastern side of the palace into a popular backdrop for numerous films. Located beneath the grand palace and surrounded by thick walls there is a further popular tourist attraction in Udaipur, the Jagdish Temple. At first sight this Vishnu sanctuary appears to be a fortress, a fact that has undoubtedly contributed to its survival. As one of the city's few Hindu temples, the Jagdish Temple survived the troops of Muslim aggressor, Mughal Aurangzeb, as he most likely did not recognize it as a temple. But history and drama aside, as the sun sets beneath the gentle hills of the Avalli Mountains it is easy to become hypnotised by the amazing beauty of Udaipur.

    Qutb Minar India - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Fifteen kilometres south of Delhi is one of the most important Islamic monuments in India, the Qutb Minar Complex. A mosque is all that remains of the legendary city of Lal Kot, a city from where Islamic rule spread throughout northern India. The city dates back to 1193 A.D., the year when Muslim invaders first settled on the Indian subcontinent. The development of Lal Kot and the construction of Qutb Minar toward the end of the 12th century accelerated the spread of Islam. The founder of Delhi's first city was Qutb-Du-Din-Aibak who was made governor of the city by the Afghan conqueror, Mohammed Of Ghur. Above the ruins of the Hindu temples that had been incorporated into the architecture, Qurwat-Ul-Islam evolved, a mosque known as The Might Of Islam. The remnants of no less than twenty seven destroyed Hindu and Jain sacred buildings were used in the construction of the first mosque on Indian soil. Until quite recently the tall victory tower that was probably inspired by a similar structure in Afghanistan, was open to the public. However, due to a tragic accident within the tower the authorities have since closed it to the public. Nevertheless, Qutb Minar provides a fascinating and atmospheric insight into the early years of Muslim sovereignty in India.

    Victoria Railway Terminal India - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. At first sight the area around the Victoria Terminus is like one of London's typical historic squares due to the many double-decker busses that can be seen. However, the chaotic hustle and bustle of the streets does not seem to be quite right. That is because this railway station is not in fact located in India but in India! The monumental building is one of the most impressive examples of Victorian Gothic architecture on the Indian sub-continent and from the initial planning stage it took ten years to build the station that is today called, Chhatrapati Shivaji. The station's design gained much inspiration from London's St. Pancras Station that had been completed in 1868. Although for most passengers tremendous hustle and bustle tends to get in the way of any architectural appreciation of the Victoria Terminus it is certain that for many years to come it will remain one of India's most important and fascinating railway stations.

    National Geographic: The Great Indian Railway - Travel Video.
    VHS. A puffing steam train climbs into the Himalaya, a rolling rumble echoes over the holy waters of the Ganges, an astonishing five million commuters rush daily through the Bombay Victoria Terminus---join National Geographic as we journey on one of the world's largest railway systems. Since 1953, India's railway has been a unifying force. Not only does it physically link distant regions, it also connects the myriad of castes, languages, and religions that comprise India. It's a rich history, riding the sumptuous "Palace on Wheels" through Rajasthan or the "toy train" to Darjeeling. But sadly, the age of steam is dying. At the Black Beauty contest, the beloved steam engines are admired for the last time. From the driver in the steaming locomotive to the station master in the sleepy village, from the family traveling to a wedding to the commuters in the large cities, this great institution reflects the country itself. Many are the faces, and varied are the stories, on "The Great Indian Railway". 115 minutes. "A beautiful video gently narrated with a lot of love. Have a handkerchief ready for the finale."

    Kings of Straw Mats: The Kumbh Mela In India - Travel Video.

Filmmaker and poet Ira Cohen brings us face to face with an unforgettable gathering of holy men and into the heart of a visionary experience by rendering it as it really is: a circus of high madness, true devotion and showbiz savvy. The Kumbh Mela takes its name from the Hindu legend which tells how four drops of the gods holy elixir fell to the earth from a "kumbh" or pitcher during a struggle with jealous demons fighting in the heavens. The celebration takes place where those drops fell to the earth. "The naked Nagas marching to the river, like sparks from some primordial fire, the people of dust with arms held high. There is a pleasure of being mad that only the madman knows." - Ira Cohen (it takes one to know one). 85 minutes approx. This is a collector's item. New.

    Exploring The Himalayas - Travel Video.
    VHS. Questar Video. Some of the most magnificent scenery on earth is featured in this travelogue, which takes the viewer to the northern Indian state of Kashmir as well as to the nation of Nepal. Nestled in the Himalayas, these once forbidden lands are now accessible to travelers, though this video notes they "can be seen as a tourist, but to experience them, one must be an explorer." The route followed by travelers in this tape takes them from the elaborate houseboats of Kashmir's Dal Lake to the ruggedly forbidding terrain at the base of Mount Everest. Much of the itinerary, including grueling mountainous treks that can last for nine days, isn't for the faint of heart, not to mention those with an aversion to high altitudes. But the stunning sights of the towering Himalayas and the instant immersion into both Hindu and Buddhist cultures encountered on the way make for a trip like no other on earth. Highlights of this video include a visit to a monastery where the Tibetan culture flourishes inside Nepal, and the sights in and around the unique city of Katmandu, where painted eyes of the Buddha look out from the towers of stupas. This is an entertaining look at a remote part of the world as it opens its arms to Western tourists.--Robert J. McNamara. 60 minutes.
