A powerful look at the history of plane hijackings. "Romantic" skyjackers fought their revolutions and won airtime on the passenger planes of the 1960's and 70's. However, by the 1990's the situation had changed and the colorful characters were replaced on our screens by stories of anonymous bombs in suitcases. Combines archival news footage of hijackings with an array of enticing images, from the surreal to the ordinary.

The Rape of Nanking [electronic resource]

Over the course of six weeks in 1937-38, Imperial Japanese forces massacred hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians and prisoners of war as the Empire of the Rising Sun turned China's capital, Nanking, into a veritable Hell on Earth. This program seeks both to expose and to understand that shocking outrage against humanity through the testimonies of the last surviving Japanese veterans and the recollections of Chinese eyewitnesses. Rarely seen newsreel and amateur footage, uncensored personal photos, and excerpts from diaries are interspersed throughout. No human rights video collection can be considered complete without an account of the atrocity that history has labeled the Rape of Nanking. Some content may be objectionable.

Lessons of the Blood [electronic resource]: Unit 731 and the Legacy of Biological Warfare

This program explores the legacy of Unit 731, a research division of the Japanese Imperial Army that conducted human experimentation on Chinese civilians during World War II. Traveling to some of China's "rotten leg villages," the video features eloquent testimony from elderly survivors who still tend deeply ulcerated, unhealed wounds resulting from Unit 731's biological attacks. The documentary highlights efforts to bring the truth about Unit 731 to light, with activists accusing modern-day Japan of downplaying or denying the episode.
