Murder in the Heartland: The Oklahoma City Bombing

Within 48 hours of the tragic blast at the Alfred P. Murrah Building on April 19, 1995, federal officials were blanketing the news media with their theory of the crime and with the designated "patsies" already judged "guilty."
According to the federal theory, to which the news media subscribed without question, the bombing was the work of American dissidents bent on a violent overthrow of the government. Congress responded by immediately enacting legislation to give the government unprecedented latitude with the invasion of individual privacy.

Reel Bad Arabs - How Hollywood Vilifies a People

This groundbreaking documentary dissects a slanderous aspect of cinematic history that has run virtually unchallenged from the earliest days of silent film to today's biggest Hollywood blockbusters. Featuring acclaimed author Dr. Jack Shaheen, the film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs--from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding "terrorists"--along the way offering devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypic images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today.

The New Rulers of the World

In order to examine the true effects of globalization, Pilger turns the spotlight on Indonesia, a country described by the World Bank as a model pupil until its globalized economy collapsed in 1998. The film examines the use of sweatshop factories by famous brand names, and asks some penetrating questions. Who are the real beneficiaries of the globalized economy? Who really rules the world now? Is it governments or a handful of huge companies? The Ford Motor Company alone is bigger than the economy of South Africa. Enormously rich men, like Bill Gates, have a wealth greater than all of Africa.

The Plane That Wouldn't Talk (Air Crash Investigation - National Geographic)

(Alternative Title: Mixed Signals)

Birgenair Flight 301 was a scheduled Puerto Plata-Gander-Berlin-Frankfurt flight. The Boeing 757-225 on the route, operated by Turkish-managed Birgenair partner Alas Nacionales, crashed. On takeoff, the captain finds that his air speed indicator (ASI) is not reading properly, though the co-pilot's ASI is showing the correct speed. Both pilots become confused and believe that both ASIs are malfunctioning. They lose control of the aircraft and it crashes in the Caribbean Sea shortly after take-off from Puerto Plata's Gregorio Luperón International Airport in the Dominican Republic. All 13 crew members and 176 passengers die.
