Age of Wal-Mart: Inside America’s Most Powerful Company
                2.0208        Business news journalist David Faber debuts CNBC's latest documentary, "The Age
                              of Wal-Mart: Inside America's Most Powerful Company." Faber takes an
                              unprecedented look at the biggest and most influential company in the world: Wal-
                              Mart. "The Age of Wal-Mart" examines how the company has ascended to its heights
                              of power - raking in close to $300 billion in sales this year alone - and asks the
                              question: can this juggernaut continue to succeed in the face of increased opposition?
                               "The Age of Wal-Mart" tells the tale of how a family-owned retailer in Northwest
                              Arkansas became the most successful retailer the world has ever seen. Given
                              unprecedented access, Faber takes viewers from an annual managers' meeting that
                              resembles an evangelical revival to the opening of a new store in China, where Wal-
                              Mart is the country's 5th largest importer, following 3 countries and all of Europe
                              combined. Faber also sits down for a one-on-one with CEO Lee Scott - who addresses
                               the criticisms over outsourcing, community friction, lawsuits and other challenges
                              the mammoth company faces today. *This description was provided by CNBC.

Argentina: Turning Around
                2.0215        In the 90s Argentina embraced globalization, but instead of making everyone rich the
                              economy collapsed. The eyes of the world were on Argentina as a desperate people
                              turned to each other for mutual support in a remarkable outpouring of grassroots
                              organizing. Now, several years later, have there been fundamental changes, or is it
                              business as usual?

Art of Balance: 20th Anniversary Edition
                2.0250         Capoeira is the unique art that combines music, dance, acrobatics and powerful self-
                               defense into one of the most complete cultural expressions seen today. Created by
                               the African slaves in Brazil over 400 years ago, Capoeira is an art form that
                               continues to surprise and delight as it evolves along with the people who practice it.
                               Demonstrating the need of the capeirista, it has been a liberating force in the past.
                               Today it is an expressive outlet giving a voice to many and becoming a universal
                               language and unifying force as it spreads across the globe. Footage includes some
                               of the most exciting Capoeira being played today from Brazil to North America. You
                               will also find this DVD contains insightful perspectives from some of the most
                               respected masters of the art form.

Asian Values Devalued
                2.0300         As the tiger economies of East Asia turned from boom to bust in the 1990s, the
                               general public was amazed. However, many economists nodded their heads
                               knowingly. This program focuses on the plights of Indonesia, Hong Kong, and
                               Malaysia where nepotism, cronyism, corruption and suppression and the exploitation
                               of cheap foreign labor brought about a financial crisis of enormous proportions.
                               These regions grew too quickly without proper controls and economic safeguards
                               which, has left the middle and lower classes, who are crushed by inflation and
                               unemployment, to pay the bill. Experts agree that East Asia will survive, eventually
                               recover and probably surpass itself but at a staggering cost in money and human
                               misery. This program is an excellent exposé that reveals why the bubble burst.

Asia-Pacific Homeland Security Summit and Exposition Day 1
                1.0220.1       On day one of this summit and exposition, many prominent figures such as
                               government officials and higher military personnel discuss various security issues
                               that affect not only the Pacific rim of the United States, but other areas such as
                               South America and Asia. Deleivered through lectures, this informative DVD puts forth
                                missions and future preventitive measures against terrorism and disasters such as
                               natural hurricanes. With a central theme being of working to protect our way of life,
                               this DVD will ensurely inspire us all.

Asia-Pacific Homeland Security Summit and Exposition Day 2 Afternoon and Day 3
                1.0220.3       During the afternoon of the second day of this summit a different theme was
                               presented to the audience, one that emphasized continous improvement. The theme
                               centralized around the fact that we must continually revaluate our system of security
                                taking into account probability, capability and imagination of "new" adversaries. The
                               dynamics of sucidie bombers and their attacks was also presented in an interesting
                               video presentation. The dynamics and characteristics of terrorists around the world
                               were presented to broaden the mind of what most people would be assume to be the
                               typical terrorist. The summit concludes during this video with tips to protect oneself
                               from terrorism and disasters as well as offering warm remarks to all guests and

                               between homeland secuirty and homeland defense as well as new technologies that
                               would aid soldiers on the battlefield and protect within borders. Many of these
                               technologies would enable data sharing compatibilities as well. Language and cultural
                               issues were discussed as well to divulge a little perspective of different opinions and
                               perspectives from around the world. This DVD concludes with a panel discussion with
                               foreign officials about world terrorism and issues related to it.

                               is a problematic term. This program presents compelling firsthand accounts of six

Bill Moyers Reports: Trading Democracy
                  2.0500      Everyone has heard about NAFTA, (the North American Free Trade Agreement) but
                              almost no one has heard about one of NAFTA's obscure provisions, with the
                              exception of those multinational corporations who are using it to challenge
                              democracy. BILL MOYER REPORTS: TRADING DEMOCRACY is the first
                              television investigation of NAFTA's Chapter 11 - what has been called an "end run
                              around the Constitution." Corporate investors are using Chapter 11 to attack public
                              laws that protect our health and our environment and even challenge jury verdicts.

Bill's Run: A Political Journey in Rural Kansas
                2.0540         Bill's Run introduces us to the people of Burdick, Kansas, population 60, where local
                               rancher and country lawyer, Bill Kassebaum, is making his first run for public office.
                               Bill's journey through the primary is a comical and sometimes painful quest of
                               quixotic proportions, as he takes on the Republican incumbent and fights to preserve
                               a lifestyle quickly disappearing from rural America. Kassebaum's filmmaker brother
                               takes us along for a blow-by-blow account of the race, providing an intimate portrait
                               of grassroots politics and life on the Great Plains. The exciting outcome proves,
                               once again, that every vote counts.

Business and Commerce
                1.0910.1       This program examines the huge changes and upheavals that have occurred in the
                               way trade is conducted and money made in the 20th century. At the end of the 19th

                               empires. The program explores how the Great Depression and World War II
                               destroyed this structure, and how a newer and bigger global market is significantly
                               different from its predecessor due to the role of multinational corporations and
                               modern communications and transportation systems. The program examines the
                               effect that the global marketplace has on issues such as employment, and how
                               politicians can no longer control local economies due to the impact of the international

Business in Blooming: The International Floral Industry

                               process in detail, clearly illustrating the global nature of the floral industry. Shot in
                               Ecuador, Colombia, France, and Holland, the video shows how supply and demand,

China in the Red
                1.0725.1     China in the Red chronicles three pivotal years of evolution from Communist society
                              to market economy. For half a century, millions of Chinese labored in state factories
                              with cradle-to-grave job security. But reforms bringing prosperity and world-power
                             status now threaten the livelihood of many Chinese. FRONTLINE follows 10 Chinese
                             citizens caught up in social and economic transformation, struggling to survive in a
                             world they never imagined. *Description provided by PBS Video.

Chinese Capitalism: Moving the Mountain
                1.0810.1     From fledgling cottage industries to the Shanghai stock market, China represents a
                             unique blend of communism and capitalism. This program studies that phenomenon
                             by examining how the Chinese themselves are adapting to the quasi-free market
                             system. Chinese economic modernization is studied at a show factory, where
                             communist worker ideals and capitalist goals coexist. In the largest migration in
                             history, 90 million rural Chinese have moved to cities in search of jobs, a better life,
                             and a larger slice of the capitalist pie, only to find the gap between rich and poor
                             widening each day. Corruption, say many, is rampant. The issue of how these
                             trends will eventually affect China's stability is examined. A BBC Production.

                               game; the winners and losers in the clash between government and the marketplace;
                               the great debate over the impact of globalization; and the powerful forces shaping our
                                economy and the future of our society. Filmed on five continents, the narrative
                               combines film footage with stories and interviews with world leaders and thinkers from

                               opening cross-cultural situations designed to reveal how such cultural givens as
                               getting right to the point, saving face, and taking turns in conversation can
                               complicate intercultural communication. It features a multicultural cast and provides

Comrade Kamprad: IKEA Goes to Russia
                2.0930         The Vikings never conquered Russia, but Swedish mega-retailer IKEA mght just pull it
                               off. In this case, victory depends on sweet-talking, arm twisting, and impromptu
                               brainstorming-skills that company founder Ingvar Kamprad has perfected over a long
                               life in business. This program follows Kamprad and a handful of colleagues during
                               their 10-day trip across Moscow Oblast and out-lying regions, revealing the political
                               and logistical challenges that must be overcome to solidify a domestic supply chain
                               and make IKEA Russia profitable. The result is both an illuminating international
                               business case study and a remarkable profile of one of the world's richest, oldest,
                               and most charismatic entrepreneurs.

Cultural Diversity "At the Heart of Bull"
                2.1050         Global competition and advances in information technology have created massive
                               changes in the business world, as compnies rush to meet the increasing demands of
                               their current customers and to gain footholds in new markets around the globe.
                               Meanwhile, dramatic changes in U.S. workforce demogrphics are bringing new cultures
                                and values to our organizations, necessitating transformation of traditional systems
                               and practices. Cultural diversity is a business reality today. The ability to build
                               bridges between people from different ethnic backgrounds is as important as any
                               other business function. Working in a cultural and ethnically diverse organization
                               does not mean eliminating differences in style and approach, but celebrating those
                               differneces and profiting from the many strenghts diversity brings to an organization.
                                This intercultural video program is designed to inform and assist people in dealing
                               with ethnic and cultural diversity in the workplace while its focus is on French and
                               Americans, it will be useful for any company that has employees or customers
                               around the world. It is also recommended for business school courses on global
                               management. It is a candid, fast-paced look at how employees from these two
                               cultures percieve themselves, one another, and the world around them. (Description

Emerging Powers - Brazil

Face and Place: Business Beyond the Bonds of Culture
                2.1450           Across Asia, the notion of "face" - a propriety of appeatances - is being replaced by
                                 Western frankness, while traditional caste systems are yielding to wealth as the
                                 determinant of status. This program profiles three executives who typify the

Fighting the Tide: Ecuador: Divided over Oil
                1.0721.2         Part two of the Fighting the Tide Series contrasts indigenous, community-based
                                 culture with market economics driven by multinational corporations. The program
                                 assesses the growing conflict between Burlington Resources, an American oil
                                 company licensed to prospect in regions of Ecuador, and the self-sufficient Achuar
                                 people of that country, who believe the oil industry will destory their environment and
                                 non-materialistic way of life. Underscoring the Ecuadorian government's tendency to
                                 accommodate U.S. interests, the video portrays a country divided by incompatible
                                 definitions of wealth and happiness.

Fighting the Tide: India: Working to End Child Labor
                1.0721.4         Part four of the Fighting the Tide series examines India's immense child labor problem
                                  and the fight against it. The program contrasts this nation's status as the world's
                                 largest democracy with the fact that, inside its borders, 80 million children work
                                 physically exhausting jobs for miniscule wages. Incorporating interviews with Shanta
                                 Sinha, founder of the organization known as MVF, the video illustrates how the group
                                 coordinates community action against the exploitation of young people and creates
                                 bridge schools that help children with the transition from work to education. It also
                                 makes a strong case that child labor increases poverty levels.

Fighting the Tide: Malawi: A Nation Going Hungry
                1.0721.1         Poverty, unstable government, and disavantages in trade have virtually eliminated
                                 food security in Malawi. Part one of the Fighting the Tide series explores the African
                                 country's stuggles on both a personal and national level, interviewing frustrated civil
                                 servants and impoverished citizens, and reflecting widespread despair over WTO
                                 policies and the government's inability to subsidize the agriculture of its own people.
                                 Highlighting the additional problems of environmental degradation and AIDS, the
                                 program offers a moving glimpse into human lives that revolve around one constat

Fighting the Tide:Guatemala:The Human Price of Coffee
                1.0721.5      Coffee is second only to oil as the world's most valuable traded commodity, but
                              small-scale producers rarely profit from it. This program reveals the hardship and
                              uncertainty faced by coffee farmers in Guatemala, and how many are taking steps
                              to obtain better prices and build better lives. Analyzing the country's traumatic history
                               and the lingering effects of its civil war, the video sheds light on the reluctance of
                              some citizens to organize for fear of persecution and murder. Part five in the Fighting
                               the Tide series clearly demonstrates that behind every pound of coffee lies a story

Fighting the Tide:Nicaragua:Turning Away from Violence
                1.0721.3      In Nicaragu, a growing awareness of domestic violence and its consequences has
                              spurred grassroots activism. Part three of the Fighting the Tide series documents the
                              efforets of thw groups, the Xochilt Acalt Center and the Association of Men Against
                              Violence, both of which confront gender and sexual abuse. Arguing that enonomic and
                               political oppression influence male tendencies to exercise physical authority within
                              the home, the video describes educational campaings that build financial self-
                              sufficiency and self-esteem in both men and women. Interviews with participants
                              feature more than one success story.

Fixed vs. Floating Exchange Rates

Foreign Exchange
                2.1470        Increased technology and global orientation have made the world a 24/7 marketplace.
                              Investors are able to buy massive amounts of stocks one minute and sell them the
                              next for a substantial profit. Many manufacturers are able to set up factories and sell
                               their product from a unified location. Foreign exchange has thus become a vital link
                              in the global chain of commerce.

Forging The Future: China's Industrial Heritage
                1.0409.1      China's first industrial revolution occurred more than two millennia before Europe's.

GMAB: Sweatshops
                1.0110.1       With protests on the rise about conditions in sweatshops, some are asking whether
                               such protests truly help those who work in these factories. Media coverage often
                               portrays the the horrible conditions sweatshop workers are forced to endure, and as a

Going Global
                1.2050.1       What do you do if your market is globalizing? In the case of Pillsbury Withrop,
                               located on opposite sides of the country, the merger of two 125-year-old law firms
                               allowed them to become a national and international force in their industry, virtually
                               overnight. Their corporate clients were going global; they had to do the same. Mary
                               Cranston spearheaded the merger, convincing her partners that the status quo was a
                               greater risk than drastic change. In this talk, she explains how she created a sense

Harsh Reality: Mexico's NAFTA Problem
                2.1535         More than a decade after NAFTA went into effect, many Mexicans are worse off than
                                before. What went wrong, and why? Focusing on the clothing industry, this program
                               goes straight to the experts south of the border - a shop owner, a factory manager,
                               employees under constant threat of layoff, and an economics professor to find out.
                               A general inability to compete with Chinese manufacturing is blamed, along with the
                               Mexican government's failure to imporve the nation's infrastructure and education
                               system. But at least one owner of a niche cut-and-sew operations expresses hope as
                               he levrages better quality workmanship to out-compete the Chinese in his market.

Heart of the Nation
                1.0420.5       This program explores the central values of Japan, Germany and the U.S. and
                               focuses on what drives each of these societies. America's hallmark is individualism;
                               Japan's the pre-eminance of the group. In America, freedom and diversity are
                               primary values; in Japan, conformity and a powerful sense of nationalism prevail.
                               Germany stands between the two, asserting individualism but striving more than the
                               U.S. for social harmony and consensus. The program shows how education is a
                               metaphor for the contrasts in the three societies.

Historia de Exitos (History of Success)

History as a Mirror: Using China's Past to Shape It's Future
                 1.0409.2       This program seeks to understand how the Chinese government, arguably the world's
                                most elaborate and long-lived bureaucracy, has managed to balance the tension
                                between controlling its people and keeping them contented enough to sustain national
                                stability. Events unfolding at the village level in Sichuan Province demonstrate the
                                dynamic of an evolving system of rule modeled on Marxism and informed by the
                                legacies of Qin Shihuangdi and Confucius. Can the centralized command and control
                                system first established so long ago continue to sustain China as it moves toward a
                                market-style economy?

                                Kingdom was established in 1932. But little is known about Saudi Arabia’s secretive
                                royal family. Through interviews with members of the family, government officials,
                                and other experts from Saudi Arabia and the U.S., the documentary also traces
                                America’s relations with the Saudi royal family from their first alliance in the 1930s

Is Wal-Mart Good for America?

                                  other—a sea of high rises in the South China boomtown of Shenzhen. The connection
                                  between American job losses and soaring Chinese exports? Wal-Mart. For Wal-Mart,
                                  China has become the cheapest, most reliable production platform in the world, the
                                  source of up to $25 billion in annual imports that help the company deliver everyday

Making of the Euro
                2.2120        January 1, 2002 will see the introduction of the euro in 12 of the 15 member states of
                               the European Union. It will be a worldwide currency with circulation second only to
                              that of the United States, used by over 300 million Europeans. But, will the euro be
                              safe? It will be printed in 10 different locations, with national variations in each bill.
                              If forgery undermines public confidence in the EU currency, the economy will be
                              crippled with untold consequences. Are Interpol and the various national policies

                1.1420.2      Malaysia plans to be industrialized by the year 2020. To meet it's goal, Malaysia will
                              have to be more daring, and develop faster than any other nation in history. The
                              alternative, some say, will be the country's division, primarily between the wealthy
                              Chinese and the native Malays, tearing it apart. Mini Dragons II takes us into the

                              counseling center for women from rural villages who work in high-tech factories and

Managing Communication in a Multicultural World
                1.2050.2     American English has been called the "Language of Business." Yet, American English
                              comes in many forms, and encompasses regional standards in addition to a national
                             standard. Race, occupation and cultural background also influence language use.
                             Dr. Baugh explains that the conclusions people reach about us, based on how we
                             speak, will result in profound economic consequences both for ourselves and for our
                             organizations. He points out that increased awareness of the impact of language is
                             important in helping us understand the impressions we form of others, and the need
                             to build tolerance of variations in dialect. In this presentation, Dr. Baugh provides a

Michelle McKinley & M.H. Hoeflich
                1.1300.2       McKinley examines the sex trade and sexual trafficking, from both a historical and
                               contemporary perspective. She notes that many of the hallmarks of globalization,
                               such as increased mobility and jobs moving to countries with low labor costs,
                               contribute greatly to the problem of sexual trafficking. Hoeflich discusses the ethics
                               of the legal representation of evil, and outlines the challenges of always acting in an
                               ethical manner, especially when professional or foreign ethical standards are less
                               restrictive than one’s own.

                               and game testers at the center of Microsoft's initiative highlight a creative and
                               intensely competitive culture prevalent not only at the Redmond-based tech giant but
                                across the entire videogame industry as well. Coversations with potential customers
                               evoke the difficult challenge Microsoft has set for itself: to dominate the game
                               market by appealing to buyers outside the traditional young male demographic.

                                NAFTA. Apart from business opportunities for Americans, employement for
                               Mexicans, and low-priced goods for both the U.S. and Mexico, the downside of
                               NAFTA is becoming all to apparent: worsening living conditions in Juarez and
                               increasing levels of air and water pollution on both sides of the border. The program
                               concludes with a discussion between anchor Ted Koppel and Fernando Macias, leader

                                help people realize what they are actually saying and what their nonverbal is saying
                               to hopefully, make sure they are conveying what the communicator was intending.

Singapore - A Success Story

                              shows how both Japan and Germany embrace more collaborative relations between

The Oil Curse
                1.0630.2        The discovery of oil is often celebrated as a one-way ticket to wealth and economic
                                growth. But in some developing countries, striking it rich has had the opposite effect
                                - making oil more of a bane than a blessing for the poorest inhabitants. This program
                                contrasts two cases: Ecuador, where the toxic environmental legacy of oil has
                                sparked a landmark lawsuit over international corporate accountability, and western
                                Africa, where today's oil companies have embraced new ethical and political
                                approaches to business. In Angola, the oil industry is financing health and education
                                development projects to ensure that some part of a potential $200-billion jackpot will

                                Tbilisi, in Georgia; and Ceyhan, in Turkey. The pipeline will transport the rich,
                                previously untapped energy reserves of the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean, from
                                whence it will flow into the global market, but its route makes many detours around

                                restraints should be put on where oil companies drill? This documentary journey
