Featuring James Dean in an early role as John the Apostle, this is the story of a U.S. Army company stationed far from home and questioning their fate. This inspirational drama portrays the group of wartime soldiers on one cold and lonely Easter morning as they ponder the seeming pointlessness of capturing hill after hill. The dramatization of the resurrection begins just after the crucifixion as Mary (Ruth Hussey, The Philadelphia Story), Nicodemus (Regis Toomey, Guys and Dolls), Pontius Pilate (Leif Erickson, On the Waterfront) and others ponder the meaning of Christ?s sacrifice. Also starring Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes) and Gene Lockhart (Miracle on 34th Street), HILL NUMBER ONE was broadcast as an episode of the religious anthology series Family Theatre, hosted and produced by Father Patrick Peyton.

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.
