ROCK OF AGES charts the amazing story of the greatest rock band in the world, chronicling their first ever gig at the Marquee Club (on July 12, 1962), the line-up changes, the famous ?rivalry? with the Beatles, their meteoric rise to fame (and notoriety) due to their live performances as well as personal dramas. From their earliest beginnings (when manager Andrew Loog Oldham was eager to present the group as the antithesis of the family-friendly Fab Four) trouble followed the band wherever it went?with numerous drug busts, in-fighting within the members of the group, and offstage antics with groupies. Since then, The Stones have gone from strength to strength, despite continuing drug busts, the tragic concert at Altamont and the high-profile love life of Mick Jagger. In recent years, however, the Stones have concentrated on their live shows, still giving 100% despite their collective age. The Rolling Stones will keep on rolling?for years to come.

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.
