Tiger Woods is one of the most successful golfers on the planet. His youth, good looks and tenacity have earned him a position as golf?s most marketable asset, and he single-handedly brought golf to the masses. Wood?s talent began to show at an astonishingly early age, and his parents clearly had lofty ambitions for their son when they put a golf club put in his hand at the tender age of three. He managed to not only reach those heights but exceed them, and has transformed golf into a mainstream sport in the United States. The sport that used to be dominated by the white upper classes?and was once described by Mark Twain as ?a good walk spoiled??has become a pastime for people of all ages, races and socio-economic backgrounds, most proclaiming to have been inspired to take up the clubs by the feats of this great champion.

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.
