Subtitle on cassette label: DNA profiling's landmark case.
Summary:
In 1983 and 1986, two young women were brutally murdered on footpaths in Narborough, England. This program traces the investigation in that landmark case--the first to be solved using DNA as evidence. Author Joseph Wambaugh walks viewers through each stage of the investigation, including the final one, where Dr. Alec Jeffreys' newly invented technique of genetic fingerprinting is used for the first time to apprehend a suspect. DNA samples are gathered from all men in Narborough, and, in the process, the killer is identified. In court, DNA evidence is used to prove that the suspect is the killer.

Founding Brothers (DVD)

- Instructional Video
Based on the book "Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation," by Joseph J. Ellis.
Summary:
Volume 1 begins with a look at two of the many crises faced by George Washington during his term as America's first president. At a time when any conflict had the potential to dissolve the fragile union, Washington surrounded himself with brilliant men who were bound by their undying devotion to America, but who were often bitterly divided about how best to serve their common cause. Volume 2 explores the ideological conflict that existed between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton and highlights Washington's farewell address. Volume 3 portrays the bitterly contested presidential election of 1796 and the difficult administration of John Adams. Volume 4 concludes with the poignant tale of the reconciliation between Adams and Jefferson, and the story of the famous duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.
