For the George family?readily accustomed to the luxuries of a privileged suburban life?Christmas has become a season of taking rather than giving. David (Kevin Sizemore, TV's Resurrection) is pre-occupied with work, Julie (Claudia Esposito) is constantly on edge, and teens Nick and Natalie are fixated on their ever-growing wish lists. The youngest, Nina, seems to be only family member with any true Christmas spirit. But when David loses his job just before the holidays, the Georges ignore the severity of the situation and continue to live above their means. When the consequences catch up with them, they are left with nothing and nowhere to turn. Taken in by an eccentric Christmas tree farmer, the family learns that miracles can come true?if you believe. Co-starring Jill Whelan (TV's The Love Boat, Airplane!) and Terry Kiser (Weekend at Bernie's), A CHRISTMAS TREE MIRACLE is a warm-hearted and inspirational tale that reminds us that the best gifts in life are the simple ones.

A powerful, emotional and relevant reminder of the heartbreaking toll war takes on the innocent, this award-winning documentary tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, in the early days of World War II. As part of a campaign to conquer all of China, the Japanese subjected Nanking?which was then China's capital?to months of aerial bombardment, and when the city fell, the Japanese army unleashed murder and rape on a horrifying scale. In the midst of the rampage, a small group of Westerners banded together to establish a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. Unarmed, these missionaries, university professors, doctors and businessmen?including a Nazi named John Rabe?bore witness to the events, while risking their own lives to protect civilians from slaughter. The story is told through deeply moving interviews with Chinese survivors, chilling archival footage and photos, testimonies of former Japanese soldiers?and a staged reading of the Westerners' letters and diaries by Woody Harrelson, Mariel Hemingway, Jurgen Prochnow and others. NANKING is a testament to the courage and conviction of individuals who were determined to act in the face of evil and a powerful tribute to the resilience of the Chinese people?a gripping account of light in the darkest of times. This version of the film features descriptive narration for the blind and visually impaired, created by the Narrative Television Network.
