Aguirre, the Wrath of God =: Aguirre, Der Zorn Gottes

Noted by legendary film critic Roger Ebert as one of his top ten favorite films of all time, this masterpiece from Oscar-nominated director Werner Herzog is an unforgettable portrait of madness and power. In the mid-16th century, after annihilating the Incan empire, Gonzalo Pizarro (Allejandro Repulles) leads his army of conquistadors over the Andes into the heart of the most savage environment on earth in search of the fabled City of Gold, El Dorado. As the soldiers battle starvation, Indians, the forces of nature, and each other, Don Lope de Aguirre (Klaus Kinski), "The Wrath of God," is consumed with visions of conquering all of South America and revolts, leading his own army down a treacherous river on a doomed quest into oblivion.

Germany [electronic resource]: Triumph of the Bavarian Business Model

With much of Europe mired in the financial quicksand of a sovereign debt crisis, Germany's domestic economy, especially that of Bavaria, tells a different story-in which businesses thrive, exports rise, and unemployment hits a 20-year low. What made it all possible? Well, the Germans have a word for it: Mittelstand. That's the most succinct way to describe the German secret to success, a business model epitomized by modest family enterprises yet one that offers inspiration to corporate giants like Audi. This lighthearted program explores the meaning of Mittelstand, explaining why Germans remain allergic to debt, committed to hard work, and intent on continuing prosperity beyond one or two generations. If only other European countries could take a page out of the Mittelstand handbook! [...]

A sensational discovery is made in a German quarry: petrified tracks created by troodontidae, a beast of great interest to scientists but about which little is known. Paleontologists around the world are excited by the find, but how much data can they glean from a footprint? This program follows a research team as it reconstructs the lives of the feathered dino-birds, piecing together clues from Chinese fossils, computerized motion studies, and from the site itself - where they must contend with curious sightseers and the gruff quarry owner. The video uses CGI sequences of dinosaurs running, hopping, screeching, eating, and fighting to bring the prehistoric world back to life.
