Moyers & Company: Dark Money in Politics - Public Affairs Television (Firm).
Call Number: Online Video
Publication Date: 2012
Let's face it," the founder of a super PAC recently told Mother Jones magazine, "Politics in this country is coin-operated." True enough, as evidenced by the billions projected to be spent in the 2012 elections - untold amounts of it unleashed by the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. But even with all that money being cashed in, the check-writers remain largely hidden, including those who helped Scott Walker out-fundraise his Democratic challenger to win 2012's recall election in Wisconsin. In this edition of Moyers and Company, Bill Moyers talks with Mother Jones editors Clara Jeffery and Monika Bauerlein, who throw light on what they call "dark money," the cash that allows the rich to influence our political freedoms. Moyers also talks with historian Thomas Frank (What's the Matter with Kansas? and Pity the Billionaire), about the power of concentrated money to subvert democracy.

Aung San Suu Kyi Lady of No Fear - First Hand Films (Firm).
Call Number: Online Video
ISBN: Aung San Suu Kyi Lady of No Fear
Publication Date: 2012
The daughter of General Aung San, a key figure in the liberation of Burma from colonial rule, Aung San Suu Kyi had recently earned a Ph. D. in economics from the University of London when she returned home to Burma (the name favored by pro-democracy supporters over "Myanmar") to care for her ailing mother. It was a time of political unrest, and in response to the violent quashing of 1988's student demonstrations, Suu Kyi picked up the family mantle of social activism and formed the National League for Democracy - an act that resulted in a series of house arrests spanning two decades, and the creation of a human rights icon. In this program, the family, friends, and colleagues of the Nobel Peace Prize recipient share memories of Suu Kyi as a daughter, wife, friend, mother, and political leader while discussing the impact her detention had on their lives. Filmmaker Anne Gyrithe Bonne had no access to Suu Kyi while this documentary was being shot, but makes use of interview clips of "the Lady" herself commenting on her role in Burma's struggles.

With the 2012 campaign season moving from primary to election mode, Bill Moyers invites back to his studio master media decoder Kathleen Hall Jamieson for a look at the role media misinformation will play in the Obama vs. Romney TV ad slugfest.

In addition, Moyers talks to RoseAnn DeMoro, who heads the largest registered nurses' union in the country, and who is championing the Robin Hood Tax, a small government levy the financial sector would pay on commercial transactions like stocks and bonds.

When the biggest earthquake in 40 years triggered a massive tsunami that swept across the Indian Ocean, it left an unprecedented trail of destruction in its wake.

Mixing actual footage, computer graphics, scientific evidence, and intensely powerful eyewitness accounts, this program presents the full explanation of how the Asian tsunami happened and why its effects were so damaging. With personal testimonies illuminating the presentation, this program investigates the wave's behavior, tells why it devastated certain areas and not others, and asks the critical question: could such a tragedy have been prevented?

Dark Days: Shedding Light on Depression - Video Education Australasia.
Call Number: Streaming Video
Publication Date: 2012
Even as ignorance about depression leads to social stigmas and alienation, many people with depression do not realize what ails them and therefore do not seek treatment in the first place. This program examines in detail what depression is, its various symptoms, and the options available for coping with or even curing it. Featuring widely respected experts from the leading mental health organization SANE Australia, the video covers clinically recognized types of depression, what demographic groups are most at risk, specific signs and symptoms, and harmful myths that prevent patients from getting real help. A close look at depression in adolescence is also included.
