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.

Dubai's Dream Palace (MegaStructures - National Geographic)

With its oil reserves dwindling, Dubai switches its sights to tourism, building the Burj al Arab, a 60-storey hotel in the shape of a sail. Set in the tiny desert kingdom of Dubai, Dubai's Dream Palace allow us to explore the remarkable engineering behind the seven-star Burj Al-Arab Hotel. Five years in the making, this striking building stands like a gigantic white sail off the shore of Dubai. As this programme reveals, a refusal to compromise on the part of the hotel’s young designers ensured that the project pushed the boundaries of design, almost to the impossible. The Burj Al-Arab was the brainchild of Dubai’s crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The Sheikh dreamt of a luxury hotel that would put Dubai on the world map, and surprised many by choosing a relatively unknown British firm to supply the design.

Future Trains (MegaStructures - National Geographic)

This documentary tells the engineering behind Maglev trains, a system that suspends, guides and propels trains, using magnetic levitation from a very large number of magnets for lift and propulsion. This method has the potential to be faster, quieter and smoother than wheeled mass transit systems. The power needed for levitation is usually not a particularly large percentage of the overall consumption; most of the power used is needed to overcome air drag, as with any other high speed train.

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

Expelled uncovers that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired in some cases for the fact that they believe there is evidence of “design” in nature, challenging the idea that life is a result of random chance. For example, Stein meets Richard Sternberg, a double PhD biologist who allowed a peer-reviewed research paper describing the evidence for intelligence in the universe to be published in the scientific journal Proceedings. Not long after publication officials from the National Center for Science Education and the Smithsonian Institution where Sternberg was a research fellow began a coordinated smear and intimidation campaign to get the promising young scientist expelled from his position. This attack on scientific freedom was so egregious that it prompted a congressional investigation.

Secrets of the Mind (NOVA - PBS)

In "Secrets of the Mind" we gain insights through various tragedies that have affected others, thanks to the logic and insights of Professor Ramachandran regarding what he calls the most complex organized matter in the universe.

The programme begins with "phantom limb syndrome" - pain and sensation in missing body areas. Ramachandran's reasoning, confirmed through a CAT-scan, is that the brain has a map of various body areas, and that eg. the right arm and right face areas of the brain are adjacent. Thus, missing body areas can lead to interference by those associated brain areas trying to cope with stimulus deprivation - eg. "cross-wiring."

If We Had No Moon (Discovery Channel)

What would life on earth be like without the moon? Well, chances are, there wouldn't be any life on earth without the moon. Life – if it had started at all – would still be in the earliest stages of evolution.Scientists use the latest computer simulations to show how an ancient rogue planet – Orpheus – collided with the earth millions of years ago, producing a sizable chunk of debris that eventually became our moon. If that collision had never occurred, we would live in a very different place. Imagine a moon-less weather report – blizzards over the Sahara, floodwaters swallowing the Pyramids, 90-degree temperatures in Antarctica. As the earth wobbles on its axis – unsecured by the moon's gravitational pull – the polar caps would grow and recede at frightening rates. And without the moon, our planet would spin much faster – meaning four-hour days and searing temperatures.

Einstein's Equation of Life and Death (Horizon - BBC)

In the summer of 1939 Albert Einstein was on holiday in a small resort town on the tip of Long Island. His peaceful summer, however, was about to be shattered by a visit from an old friend and colleague from his years in Berlin. The visitor was the physicist Leo Szilard. He had come to tell Einstein that he feared the Nazis could soon be in possession of a terrible new weapon and that something had to be done.

Szilard believed that recent scientific breakthroughs meant it was now possible to convert mass into energy. And that this could be used to make a bomb. If this were to happen, it would be a terrible realisation of the law of nature Einstein had discovered some 34 years earlier.

The Case for Christ

When hard-nosed investigative journalist Lee Strobel embarked on a journey to de-bunk the claims of Christ, he instead uncovered something far more: a life-changing, deep-rooted faith, as chronicled in his Gold Medallion award-winning, best-selling book, The Case for Christ.

Strobel, the former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, draws upon his legal background (Yale Law School) and his years as an award-winning reporter to methodically subject the claims of Christ to the scrutiny he used in investigating legal cases. With dogged research and unmatched skill, Strobel examines the historical accuracy of the Gospels, the personal claims of Jesus, and His resurrection from the dead. The result is a remarkable journey from atheism to faith through a two-year investigation of the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ.

Perhaps the unprecedented scientific knowledge acquired in the last century, enabled by equally unprecedented technological achievements, should, when properly interpreted, contribute to a deeper appreciation of our place in the cosmos.

Indonesia in Revolt - Democracy or Death

This film was made in Indonesia and Australia between August 1998 and March 1999 in cooperation with underground activists from Indonesia. This film tells the story of the 1998 explosion of the Indonesian student movement and its successful struggle to get rid of the 33 years authoritarian regime of Suharto. It is also serves as a reminder of how the struggle for full democracy, social justice and freedom in Indonesia, is not yet over.
During the documentary's production, Jill Hickson spent two months with the Indonesian students and members of the People's Democratic Party (PRD) featured in the film. At this time, many political activists was still in jail and the Indonesian military's alleged campaign of kidnapping and torturing pro-democracy activists was still ongoing, resulting in the disappearance of 13 activists.

It was the first real mention of the group in Australia. But Indonesians had another theory - they suspected the military, the only organisation with the capacity to pull off an operation of this scale, a full two years before the first Bali bomb.
