Patrick Reynolds, grandson of tobacco magnate RJ Reynolds, tells teens the hard
facts about smoking and other tobacco use. Through satirical ads, cutting-edge
advertising and striking personal stories, Reynolds makes painfully clear the high
price tobacco users pay, both physically and emotionally. In Part I, Reynolds
indicates that cigarette advertising has a much greater impact on teens than they
realise. Ninety percent of all smokers become addicted when they are teenagers,
thus making teens the main targets of smoking ads. This is one of the main
arguments for the ban placed on smoking advertising in South Africa. Part II
relates the story of Sean Marsee, a 19-year old former athlete, whose use of
chewing tobacco led to cancer of the tongue. Sean died, after extended efforts to
save him. Photographs of Sean, whose tongue and part of his jaw, face and neck
were removed, need no words to prove tobacco’s heartbreaking effects. Reynolds
implores teens to root out the causes of their tobacco (and other) addictions by
dealing with their problems head-on, and making positive choices in their lives.       LS005         R 299.00

programmes on the prevention of sexual assault of children. One programme is
for adults, introducing the series and the subject. The other three programmes are
for children, each designed for a specific age group, and their purpose is to give
kids tools to protect themselves against sexual assault – from strangers, family
members, or other trusted persons.
Programme One (14 Minutes) Ages 5 – 8                                                  LS086A             R 399.00

judgement which provide the necessary foundation for self-protection. The
programme points out that some touches feel good – a “yes” feeling; others hurt or
feel bad – a “no” feeling.
Programme Two (14 Minutes) Ages 9 – 12                                                LS086B              R 399.00

Teaches a more complex level of differentiation. Building on the earlier self-
affirmation and discrimination skills, it introduces the subject of sexual assault by
family members or other trusted persons. This final programme shows children
how to protect their integrity and get help in the face of such an event.

Alcohol is the most widely used drug in the world. Popularly concidered a “social
lubricant” which may initially cause a feeling of relaxation, alcohol also hamper’s
the user’s judgement. In “Alcohol And The Mind” various people recount how
alcohol consumption blurs the ability to think clearly and act rationally. Two Doctors
explain that the effects of alcohol may range from a temporary relief of stress to
recurring axiety and memory loss.Corroborating interviews include college

enforcement officer who details the ways in which alcohol impairs ability. Users

sex, a particually dangerous venture in this era of HIV/Aids. For adults to decide
whether or not to drink, they must weigh the fleeting pleasures of a few drinks
against the lasting consequences, including embarrassment, the possible loss of a
job, friends and other relationships, arrest, accidents, and even death.                  LS300          R 399.00

recovery specialist explains the necessity of setting goals in recovery, and why the
first goal must be changing a negative self-image. The importance of responsibility
in recovery, and the value of changing lifestyles are also stressed. Viewers are
able to hear firsthand the attitudes that preclude success, and those that herald a
relapse. Recovery involves much more than just staying clean and sober, and this
DVD helps those affected move beyond mere abstinence by looking ahead to
inner peace and fulfillment.                                                            LS113         R 365.00

The disease of addiction is progressive, destructive, and ultimately fatal, and it has
many symptoms. Of all its characteristics, perhaps the most dangerous is that of
denial, which helps to keep its prisoners firmly locked in prisons within their own
minds. To an outsider, denial is glaringly obvious; but to someone caught in the
disease of addiction, it is almost impossible to recognize. In this episode, the
dangers of denial are demonstrated as five recovering addicts relate their own
experiences with denial, and the destructive consequences that resulted. A
recovery specialist explains how the denial system works, and the necessity of
breaking through to acceptance, honesty, and willingness.                                 LS115        R 365.00

Codependency affects many of those who have been imprisoned in the disease of
addiction. It is difficult to define, and sometimes even more difficult to recognize,
because it is often disguised as love, devotion or even commitment. This
programme outlines eight characteristics of codependency, and offers some
solutions to this condition.                                                             LS114         R 365.00

Hinduism was born of a civilization that existed nearly 5,000 years ago – around
3,000 B.C.E., in the Indus valley of India. It is believed to be the world’s oldest
living religion. Unlike other religions, Hinduism has no single founder and no
defined organizations. The religion has maintained its strength in the face of
invasion by Muslims, the missionary efforts of Christians, British colonial
occupation, and the pressures of social changes in Indian culture. In this
programme, shot on location in India and the U.S., we visit many Hindu sacred
places, and get insight into the deities, rituals, and symbols that provide spiritual
meaning for the followers of Hinduism. Emphasis is placed on Hinduism in the
modern world – from the time of Mahatma Gandhi through present day.                      LS772          R 350.00

The Arabic world Islam means “to surrender.” It is derived from the Arabic root
word for peace. One out of every five people on earth, more than one billion
people, have chosen to follow the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed, the
religion of Islam. It is the world’s fastest growing religion. Because of this, the
social political and economic power of Islam is profound and it is important to
understand why the youngest of the world’s religions has attracted so many
followers. Segments cover: The history of the faith; the practices of its followers;
the art, architecture, and science of Islam; its contemporary role in the world; and
the effect of the colonial era on the faith. Shot on locations in India, Iran, Saudi
Arabia, and the U.S. and including interviews with followers, as well as historic

Buddhism can be described as more of a way of life than a religion. Not based on

   Fundamental Economic Concepts, Microeconomic Concepts, and Macroeconomic Concepts provides a solid
 foundation for economic study. Designed for use in America at the high school to junior college level, the series

Economics is the study of the use of limited resources to produce and distribute
goods and services. This programme, which may function as an introduction or as
a review, examines the principles that are at the core of economics. Scarcity leads
to opportunity cost decisions, the necessary choice between economic options.

Fundamental Economic Concepts equips students with an understanding of
historical economic systems. The programme then focuses primarily on the
structure and function of the free market economy and explains the institutions and
incentives that have developed to regulate production and distribution of goods,
services, and money, which are exchanged in the world marketplace.                         LS880        R 250.00

Microeconomics is the study of how markets work; it looks at factors that influence
and result from the inner workings of economies. Specifically, it looks at how
businesses in the market economy go about using limited resources to produce
and distribute goods and services. This programme demonstrates how the market
sets prices and determines the quantity and nature of goods and services
produced, and demonstrates the roles of competition and regulation. The
character of a well-functioning market economy – with its back-and-forth flow of
money and factors of production – is analyzed. What happens when the market
process fails, and the methods available to correct market failures are explained.         LS881        R 250.00

Macroeconomics is the study of the factors that influence, and result from, the
large scale functions of economies. It is the way economists measure the
behaviour and functioning of economies. To do this, economists quantify aspects
of the economic process using economic aggregates, or averages; measurements,
such as the Gross National Product; unemployment; and inflation. This
programme looks at how these measurements can provide insights into the health
of an economy, how they impact the purchasing power of currencies, and ways
governments can control and impact economic aggregates.                            LS882                R 250.00

that determine how we choose to use resources in economic activities.                      LS883        R 250.00
