In the tradition of Al Franken and Michael Moore, Ed Asner - aka Lou Grant from The Mary Tyler Moore Show - reclaims the Constitution from the right-wingers who think that they and only they know how to interpret it. Ed Asner, a self-proclaimed dauntless Democrat from the old days, figured that if the right-wing wackos are wrong about voter fraud, Obama´s death panels, and climate change, they are probably just as wrong about what the Constitution says. There´s no way that 200-plus years later, the right-wing ideologues know how to interpret the Constitution. On their way home from Philadelphia, the people who wrote it couldn´t agree on what it meant. What was the president´s job? Who knew? All they knew was that the president was going to be George Washington, and as long as he was in charge, that was good enough. When Hamilton wanted to start a national bank, Madison told him that it was unconstitutional. Both men had been in the room when the Constitution was written. And now today there are politicians and judges who claim that they know the original meaning of the Constitution. Are you kidding? In The Grouchy Historian, Ed Asner leads the charge for liberals to reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as their justification for doing whatever terrible thing they want to do, which is usually to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. It´s about time someone gave them hell and explained that Progressives can read, too. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ed Asner.

Far removed from the picture of Tehran we glimpse in news stories, there is another, hidden city, where survival depends on an intricate network of lies and falsehoods. It is a place where Mullahs visit prostitutes, cosmetic surgeons restore girls´ virginity and homemade porn is bought and sold in the bazaars. It is also the home of our eight protagonists, drawn from across the spectrum of Iranian society: the porn star, the ageing socialite, the assassin and enemy of the state who ends up working for the Republic, the volunteer religious militiaman who undergoes a sex change, the dutiful housewife who files for divorce, and the old-time thug running a gambling den. These are ordinary people forced to live extraordinary lives. Plotted around the city´s pulsing central thoroughfare, Vali Asr Street, City of Lies is an energetic, intimate and unforgettable portrait of modern Tehran and of what it is to live, love and survive under one of world´s most brutally repressive regimes. 1.

In its early years, Duluth was a gold mine for lumber barons. Men were employed as lumberjacks and worked like beasts, only to be tossed aside like used equipment when no longer needed. The grand forests were raped for their prime timber, the balance burned wastefully. The men were coarse and hard, but they had to be to survive. More than any other people that ever lived in our land, these old-time lumberjacks could truthfully say, ´´No man cared for my soul.´´ That is, until God sent three men to the great Northwoods of our country - Frank Higgins, John Sornberger, and Al Channer. These men blazed new trails of the Spirit and founded an empire for God. They reached a sector of humanity for which no spiritual work had ever been done before, storming the Northwoods with a consuming passion for Christ. And with that passion, they also brought a heart as big as all outdoors, a love for men that burned like a flame, and a desperate desire to see these men saved. 1. Language: English.

Save the People have created the perfect egalitarian society from the ruins of global warming, where youth and health are celebrated in Britain’s constant sunshine. And to ensure that no individual takes more than another from the world’s remaining resources each citizen gets 100 points to spend on education, housing, and health; just be careful when they’re gone. Anyone who reaches the age of 60 retires to glorious Scotland ´where dreams come too´ and gets what they well and truly deserve. But when a shipwreck of drowned old-timers washes up on his beach the village policeman becomes more than a little interested in his own parents´ retirement, and begins an investigation with unforeseen consequences. 1.
