From the forests of Mexico to the farms of North America, learn how successful beekeepers develop sustainable practices to improve the quality and quantity of honey bee populations. Bees are underappreciated workers that pollinate 80% of our flowering crops (which constitute 1/3 of everything we eat), so if they disappear they could take most of our insect-pollinated plants with them?potentially reducing humankind to little more than a water diet. SAVING THE LIFE KEEPERS reveals how local citizens, farmers, businesses and beekeepers can help protect and preserve bee populations by utilizing plant biodiversity, mass plantings of protein rich flowers, queen bee organic mating yards, and chemical-free treatment of bee diseases.

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.
