    Golden Gate Bridge & The St.
    Louis Arch - Travel Video DVD. Modern Marvels Architectural Wonders. 1 Hour and 40 Minutes. Golden Gate Bridge The Golden Gate Bridge is the most popular man-made tourist attraction in the United States, as well as a vital artery for the city of San Francisco. But at one time, critics said it could never be built. Explore the incredible story behind the world's most famous and spectacular bridge in this definitive program. From the start the project looked impossible the span of the bay was too wide;the shore was too unstable, and the tides too turbulent. See incredible footage of its construction, as storms battered workers and fog shrouded construction. And learn why engineer Joseph B. Strauss' plans proved to be a masterpiece of design and function. For in four years, the longest, highest, most spectacular suspension bridge on Earth opened to the public, and went on to become one of the greatest symbols of American ingenuity. St. Louis Arch It soars 630 feet above the Mississippi River, offering a symbolic entrance into America's heartland. On a busy summer day, 6,400 people will take the memorable ride to the top for sweeping views of St. Louis, the Mississippi and the surrounding area. The Gateway Arch is one of the most distinctive and familiar landmarks in America. But none of the millions of visitors have ever seen it the MODERN MARVELS? way! Extensive photos and film clips of its construction, interviews with the inventors, engineers and contractors who transformed the dream into a reality and a behind-the-scenes tour of its inner workings make this the ultimate video history of the arch. From the story of how a college dropout designed the unique tram system that takes visitors to the top to a look at the arch's ongoing maintenance and upkeep, THE ST. LOUIS ARCH examines every aspect of this stunning structure. Nothing like it had ever been built before--and nothing since has come close to duplicating it.

    Modern Marvels Architectural Wonders. 1 Hour and 40 Minutes. Mount Rushmore Towering over the Black Hills of South Dakota, Mount Rushmore is a beloved American masterpiece that was built over the course of 15 years, with 350 men pouring their sweat into the grand vision of talented young sculptor Gutzon Borglum. Using drills and explosives, they carefully chiseled Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt into the massive granite cliff. Modern Marvels explores the controversial history of this unorthodox monument, including the remarkable design specifications, the tragedies and setbacks that marred its construction, and the awe it inspires to this day. Hoover Dam The task seemed unsurmountable: build the world's largest dam in the middle of the desert, then tame the river that carved the Grand Canyon, and do it all in seven years! When the Hoover Dam was completed at last in 1935. It became the largest dam in the world. Hoover Dam reveals how this engineering wonder of the world was conceived and built.

    Egyptian Pyramids & The Great Wall of China - Travel Video DVD.
    Modern Marvels Architectural Wonders. 1 Hour and 40 Minutes. Egyptian Pyramids Constructed as tombs for the ancient pharaohs, over 100 pyramids remain in Egypt today, standing as cultural and engineering marvels of staggering proportions. But many facts about these monuments-including the exact methods used to construct them-remain tantalizingly obscure. Modern Marvels travels back in time to investigate their evolution, from the first primitive, flat-roofed tombs called "mastaba" to such magnificent works as the Step Pyramid, Bent Pyramid , and of course, the great masterpiece of Giza: the Necropolis! The Great Wall of China Winding roughly 6,700 kilometers through undulating mountains, grasslands, and desert, its vastness seems beyond the realm of human possibility. A wonder of the ancient world, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind's most massive building achievements. Yet contrary to popular belief, there is no single wall of China, but rather a series of walls built for different reasons at different times. Modern Marvels embarks on a journey of discovery, investigating the mysterious history surrounding this cultural marvel.

    Classic Ski Films - Travel Video - DVD.

Relive the Golden Age of Alpine Skiing-from 1940s Hollywood coming to Sun Valley, Idaho for lessons, to the birth of hotdogging in 1970s Aspen-with Classic Ski Films on DVD. Whether it was the first WWII training film for U.S. mountain troops, or the pageantry and power of the 1960 Winter Olympics, three extraordinary pioneering filmmakers captured it through the lens of history. John Jay Considered the grand-daddy of the modern ski-film road show, John Jay was a Rhodes Scholar whose prolific output and inveterate showmanship were the inspirations to an entire generation of newly minted skiers. His books and magazine articles aside, Jay's annual ski films-featuring his trademarked brand of wittily inspired commentary-have played to tens of thousands of alpine enthusiasts.

Thirty years and thousands of feet of film later, Dick Barrymore enjoys a global reputation as an itinerant artist whose motion pictures highlight every aspect of the sheer joy of skiing, from innovations in early equipment to the thrill of adventure and competition. Hanging up his camera in 1990, he decisively retired from ski-filmmaking while at the top of his game.
