For thousands of years, the fabled Silk Road, as traveled by Marco Polo, was the link between the people of Europe and the vast riches of mysterious China. Spanning the deserts, grasslands and seas between Istanbul and the major cities of China, the Silk Road witnessed an ongoing parade of goods and traders, carrying with them their art, religion, and culture. The Silk Road II is a eighteen-part documentary series produced by Japan's NHK, exploring the western reaches of the Silk Road beyond China and Mongolia, eventually arriving in historic old Rome. The journey begins in the Pamir Plateau at the border between China and Pakistan, where the Silk Road (season one) ended. Then the Silk Road crew explore different trade routes beyond China and Mongolia, journeying through Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Central Asian countries.

|National Geographic's Season of the Cheetah [VHS]
Lowest used price: $5.95
In Africa's Serengeti, the beginning of the rainy season marks the return of the fastest animal on land - the cheetah. For him this is a time of plenty and a season of danger. In this beautifully photographed film, National Geographic follows three cheetah brothers as they hunt for prey. Sleek and quick, the cheetahs are a formidable match for the abundant wildlife of the plains. When the cheetahs wander into an isolated valley, a timeless drama of life and death unfolds to this, the SEASON OF THE CHEETAH.
Dogs might chase cars, but only a cheetah could actually catch one. These big cats, the fastest land animals in the world, can attain speeds of 60 miles per hour, if only for short sprints. Still, that's all they need to nab a hapless Thomson's gazelle in Season of the Cheetah, a still-timely National Geographic Video Classic. Following small groups of these lithe, graceful killers as they return to the Serengeti for the spring rainy season, we can see their complicated social life, their struggles with competitors such as (much larger) lions, and their reliance on quick kills for their everyday sustenance. While their situation and numbers have improved somewhat over the years, their fight for life is just as gripping as ever. Add to that the absolutely smashing footage of the Serengeti during and after a storm--the inescapable torrents, the churning clouds, and the eerie light that follows--and you'll find Season of the Cheetah irresistible. --Rob Lightner

Were the 58,132 Americans killed in the Vietnam War "sent to die on a fool's errand with no purpose?" Or were they engaged in a noble cause to halt the spread of communism? Why did we lose this war, despite our overwhelming military superiority? Was it because our own media undermined the will of the American people to fight to win?
These important questions are raised by Charlton Heston in Television's Vietnam, a two-part documentary in which military experts, scholars, journalists and Vietnamese exiles contrast what actually happened in Vietnam with widespread myths and misunderstandings.
Produced in response to angry protests from Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese exiles about Public Broadcasting's $5.6 million series, Vietnam: A Television History, Accuracy in Media's Television's Vietnam has made television history.
Part One, The Real Story, is the first and only documentary ever aired by a network devoted to exposing errors in a previously aired documentary series. It presents evidence showing that Vietnam: A Television History had unjustly maligned American fighting men, our Vietnamese allies, our Vietnam veterans, and had falsely glorified our enemy.
Part Two, The Impact Of Media, shows that misleading reporting from Vietnam contributed significantly to the loss of will to do what was necessary to keep South Vietnam from falling to the Communists.
Both stories have been highly praised by Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese exiles for setting the record straight and explaining why our "noble cause" ended in tragedy. President Ronald Reagan praised them as films that "all Americans should see."
