This unauthorized documentary on world-famous soccer team Manchester United takes viewers on a roller-coaster ride through the peaks and valleys of the "Man U" story?from the second division struggles of the 1920s and the Post-War glory days of Matt Busby?s reign, to the heart-rending tragedy of the Munich Air Disaster and the long haul back to the top with the help of Bobby Charlton and the sport?s first superstar, George Best. This film also covers the team's history with regulation, football hooligans, the disappointing form of flamboyant manager Ron Atkinson (whose sacking made way for Alex Ferguson) and the rise of the Red Devils. The brand equity and net worth of Manchester United has meant that some of the biggest names and global superstars of the game have played for this powerhouse football club. From Best to Charlton, Beckham to Ronaldo, the media can?t get enough of these talented and popular stars. With never-ending expansions at Old Trafford, its own TV station and a merchandising empire worth millions, Manchester United really does look set to take over the universe.

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.
