A War on Science 为科学而战
One hundred and fifty years after the publication of On the Origin of Species, an unprecedented legal battle has gripped America over an illegal attempt to teach Intelligent Design, a theory that stipulates that nature is so complicated and existence so improbable that it cannot be accounted for by the processes of evolution. It is an essentially Creationist theory which claims a legitimate challenge to Evolution. As the world's media descended on a small U.S. town, even the President took an active interest.
The Putin System 普金政权
两位导演Jean-Michel Carré和Jill Emery历时三年参访了许多人，来深入了解俄罗斯最强有力的政治家普金生活和从政的动力。他们与普金的长期支持者——比如曾任普金读书时老师的Vera Gurvich——交谈，也与普金的最严厉的批评者，比如国际象棋冠军Garry Kasparov以及一些克格勃、克里姆林宫内部人员进行谈话。这部观点鲜明的“观点纪录片”具有强烈的批判意识，对普金力保俄罗斯重展世界大国风采的举措提出了负面的看法。(感谢论坛的star-gazer朋友的修改建议。 by 喵喵驴驴）
For three years, filmmakers Jean-Michel Carré and Jill Emery interviewed dozens of people to gain insight into the life and political motivations of Russia's most powerful politician, Vladimir Putin. They spoke to long-time supporters, like Putin's former schoolteacher, Vera Gurvich, to his harshest critics, like world chess champion Garry Kasparov, as well as many KGB and Kremlin insiders. What emerged is a point-of-view documentary that presents an ominous view of what Putin is willing to do to ensure Russia regains its position on the world stage.
God on My Side 上帝与我同在
Seventy million Americans are born-again Christians. They make up 40% of George W. Bush's vote. In return for their ballots they expect a powerful voice at the political table, with input on foreign and domestic policy.
In an attempt to shed some light on their practices, beliefs and increasingly dire predictions, Andrew Denton - Australia's most awarded interviewer - visits the 63rd National Religious Broadcasters' (NRB) Convention in Dallas, Texas. Not to judge, but to understand.
Blue Hemlets: Peace and Dishonour 维和部队：维和与丑闻
我们是否真正了解维和部队在海外的表现呢？ 他们的蓝盔帽象征着希望，来到那些饱受残酷战乱摧残的国家。维和部队的士兵来自全球各地，代表他们的祖国和联合国执行公务：保护平民、防止暴徒狗急跳墙——至少，官方命令是这样的。 （by 喵喵驴驴）
Do we really know how peacekeepers behave abroad? Their blue helmets symbolize hope. They are sent to countries where entire populations have been destroyed by deadly conflict. Soldiers from every corner of the world serve as representatives of their countries and work on behalf of the United Nations. Their role is to protect civilians and keep belligerent parties at bay. At least, that is their official mandate.
Princess Diana: Her Life in Jewels 戴安娜王妃：珠围翠绕的一生
从那枚著名的、价值28,500磅的蓝宝石订婚戒指开始，戴安娜便常常与宝石相伴，每一件都对应她的生活中经历的大事件。 （by 喵喵驴驴）
From fairy-tale wedding to tragic funeral, the extraordinary life of Diana, Princess of Wales, was a chronicle of jewels each marking distinct junctures in her life.
Beginning with the infamous 28,500 pound sapphire engagement ring, Diana was frequently showered with gems, each of which held a unique significance to the events in her life at the time.
Taking on the Taliban 决战塔利班
It was hoped British forces would leave Afghanistan without firing a shot, instead senior offices have described it as the heaviest fighting the British Army has seen since the Korean War and more than 50 of their men have been killed.
Royal Rivals: Charles and William 查尔斯和威廉王子
From the alienation and death of Diana to welcoming a new stepmother into the royal family, Charles and William have experienced more tragedy and change than most families ever see. Yet, despite these discouraging events, the bond remains strong between the two men.
The Secret World of Haute Couture “高级定制”的秘密世界
导演Margy Kinmonth从巴黎到纽约、加利福尼亚，一路探访奢侈品界的翘楚行业——设计师和顾客都谈论最多，但是又只面向极少客户量身定做的“高级定制”。“高级定制”老一辈的美国客户已经衰老、故去；而现在的年轻女子很少选择“高级定制”，使得它现在只能苦苦支撑。一路行来，Margy Kinmonth发现这个关于行业衰退的故事里，很多东西已经变了，但还有很多传统依然坚持。（by 喵喵驴驴）
Margy Kinmonth takes a journey from Paris to New York and California to meet both designers and customers in this much talked about but little explained pocket of the fashion industry. Haute couture's traditional American customers are getting old and dying off now and fewer wealthy young women are taking their place to ensure its survival. She discovers how much has changed and surprisingly how much has stayed the same in this story of decadent decline.
The Firing Line 战地前线
《战地前线 2007》这期节目称颂了深入敌营的独立新闻摄影工作者们的自我保护技巧和坚定意志。勇气和积极性使得他们获得了2007年的最佳新闻摄影图片奖。（by 喵喵驴驴）
Firing Line 2007 pays tribute to the skill and determination of freelance cameramen and women who go into hostile environments and whose courage and initiative led them to deliver the best photojournalism of the past year.
Mr and Mrs Bin Laden 本·拉登夫妇
A strange tale of love and lust straight from the newspaper headlines, Mr. & Mrs. bin Laden tells the story of the fourth son of Osama bin Laden's controversial marriage to a British grandmother twice his age.
It was always the most unlikely of marriages: a 51-year-old grandmother and five-time divorce from Cheshire, to a 26-year-old Saudi man who already had a wife and child himself. The fact that the man Jane Felix Browne married was also the son of the world's most-wanted terrorist, and she is now Osama bin Laden's daughter-in-law, made the story almost unbelievable. But the truth about the relationship between Mrs. bin Laden and the young and severely smitten Omar bin Laden is wonderfully elusive. After all, Jane claimed that she knew from first glance that they would be married.
Mortgage Meltdown 次贷危机
上个月，一家澳洲媒体提出了一个抽象的概念：“次贷危机”席卷美国。 全美国的房主拒付贷款债务，经济学家警告经济危机可能横扫从巴黎到北京、到墨尔本的全球各地。但是俄亥俄州的克利夫兰取消回赎权，为什么会影响到悉尼的对冲基金呢？（by 喵喵驴驴）
"When the US sneezes the rest of the world gets the cold."
Last month an unfamiliar expression appeared in the Australia media. A "subprime mortgage crisis" was unfolding in the United States. Homeowners across America were defaulting on loan payments and economists warned of major financial fallout occurring anywhere from Paris to Beijing to Melbourne. But why should a foreclosure in Cleveland affect a hedge fund in Sydney?
Crude - the incredible journey of oil, from its birth deep within our dinosaur-inhabited past, to its ascendancy as the indispensable ingredient of modern life.
Oil is one of the most sought after resources in the world and sweeps into almost every part of our modern lives, yet most people have little idea of the incredible 160 million year journey it has made to reach our gas tanks and plastic bags. What is its history? Where does it come from? When will it run out?
The Boys from Baghdad High 巴格达高中生
美丽的巴格达如今为宗教暴力分崩离析，这部纪录片以四位男孩的友谊为主线，观察他们的友情是否可以不被外界纷扰所左右。这部纪录片其实正是由四个男孩在2006至07学年间自己拍摄的，他们带领观众以一种独特的视角，深入观察普通伊拉克人的生活。 （by 喵喵驴驴）
The story of four Iraqi boys - who are both friends and class mates - at school in one of the most dangerous cities on earth, Baghdad. One boy is Kurdish, one Christian, one Shia and one from a mixed Sunni/Shia background.
As the city is torn apart by sectarian violence, the film follows their friendships to see whether they can survive. Filmed by the four students themselves during the 2006/07 academic year, The Boys from Baghdad High offers a unique insight into ordinary Iraqi lives.
Devil Plays Hardball
"When I was a kid, and you asked me, 'what do you want to be when you grow up?', I didn't say a heroin addictàI want to have a family someday...and a house of my own."
If you could get one person off the street, would you? Could you? Devil Plays Hardball is a radical interventionist documentary by Paperny Films that seeks to answer this question. Four well-established Vancouver residents have 10-months to mentor homeless individuals from various Vancouver neighborhoods who have the desire û but not necessarily the means û to re-enter mainstream
society. What ensues is a complicated journey that provides an up-close and intimate look at the people most of us choose to ignore û Canada's homeless.
No End in Sight
The first film of its kind to chronicle the reasons behind Iraq's descent into guerilla war, warlord rule, criminality and anarchy, NO END IN SIGHT is a jaw- dropping, insider's tale of wholesale incompetence, recklessness and venality.
Based on over 200 hours of footage, the film provides a candid retelling of the events following the fall of Baghdad in 2003 by high ranking officials such as former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, Ambassador Barbara Bodine (in charge of Baghdad during the Spring of 2003), Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell, and General Jay Garner (in charge of the occupation of Iraq through May 2003), as well as Iraqi civilians, American soldiers and prominent analysts.
NO END IN SIGHT examines the manner in which the principal errors of U.S. policy - the use of insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, the purging of professionals from the Iraqi government and the disbanding of the Iraqi military - largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today.
Afghanistan's Opium Trail
In bleak Afghan villages, the lure of opium cultivation is clear. With no other viable alternative for farmers and no effective law enforcement by the Afghan police, growing poppies is the only way for locals to feed their hungry families. It is this opium that is sold to drug barons and their envoys, processed into heroin and then smuggled across borders.
In ever-increasing quantities, Afghanistan is flooding the world with heroin, supplying over 90 per cent of opium to the world market. Most startling is the effect on the country's youth, since the majority of Afghanistan's growing number of heroin addicts are under the age of 20. It is a problem that is
further destabilizing the country by undermining tribal structures and traditions. In this shocking documentary, Afghanistan's Opium Trail takes viewers for a ride on the drug caravan-from cultivation, to process, to market-and lifts the curtain on the hidden world of the drug barons
"I was panic stricken when they told me that I had to go on dialysis. I was so anxious to get a kidney that I would have done anything....When you're desperate, morality goes out the window." Richard, 71-year-old Canadian transplant tourist.
THE PASSIONATE EYE presents Transplant Tourism, an expose of the global black market trade in human organs.
