Huge lakes on Titan, Saturn?s largest moon -- salt water geysers on Enceladus, like ?Old Faithful? -- these are only two of the amazing discoveries of NASA?s Cassini Mission, as told by one of its top scientists in her own words.  Dr. Carolyn Porco eloquently takes us on a thrilling tour of Saturn and its moons, using the stunning original photographs taken by Cassini?s digital cameras and the astonishing images of its probe, Huygens, that actually landed across space on the surface of Titan.  Fly over Titan?s Lake Ontario and glide through the mists of Enceladus ... and wonder whether life hasn?t already started to emerge in their watery depths

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.
