One of the true classics of American literature. Originally published in 1900, it was the first truly American fairy tale, as Baum crafted a wonderful fantasy, peopled with memorable characters — a cornfield scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and a humbug wizard. Follow the adventures of young Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, as their Kansas house is swept away by a cyclone and they find themselves in a strange land called Oz. Here she meets the Munchkins and joins the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion on an unforgettable journey to the Emerald City. 1. Language: English.

In 1909 the millionaire French banker and philanthropist Albert Kahn embarked on an ambitious project to create a colour photographic record of, and for, the peoples of the world. As an idealist and an internationalist, Kahn believed that he could use the new Autochrome process, the world´s first user-friendly, true-colour photographic system, to promote cross-cultural peace and understanding. Until recently, Kahn´s huge collection of 72,000 Autochromes remained relatively unheard of. Now, a century after he launched his project, this photography book and the BBC TV series it accompanies are bringing these dazzling historical photos to a mass audience for the first time and putting colour into what we tend to think of as an entirely monochrome age. Kahn sent photographers to more than 50 countries, often at crucial junctures in their history, when age-old cultures were on the brink of being changed for ever by war and the march of 20th-century globalisation. They documented in true colour the collapse of the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires, the last traditional Celtic villages in Ireland, and the soldiers of the First World War. They took the earliest known colour photographs in countries as far apart as Vietnam and Brazil, Mongolia and Norway, Benin and the United States. In 1929 the Wall Street Crash forced Kahn to bring his project to an end. He died in 1940, but left behind the most important collection of early colour photographs in the world.
Red Skelton´s impressive gallery of comic characterizations didn´t need to be seen to be hilarious! Through sound alone, he brought to life a ´´fellow from the country´´, an inept outlaw, a down-for-the-count boxer, a shady politician, a Brooklynese braggart... and a holy terror known as ´´Junior, the Mean Widdle Kid´´. To commemorate Skelton´s centennial birthday, Radio Spirits presents this collection of previously uncirculated broadcasts. Three of these are rehearsal recordings, in which Red cuts loose with wild ad-libs and general tomfoolery that never fail to convulse both his regulars and the audience. This collection co-stars Verna Felton, Pat McGeehan, Anita Ellis, GeGe Pearson, Wonderful Smith, Lurene Tuttle, and announcer Rod O´Connor. Episodes include: People Who Worry, 10-15-46; Man´s Best Friend, 10-22-46; Cheese It! The Cops!, 01-21-47; Rehearsal for March 4, 1947 Broadcast, 03-02-47; A Tarnished Memo of the Golden West, 04-29-47; Rehearsal for May 13, 1947 Broadcast, 05-11-47; The Mothers of Invention, 05-20-47; The Barber of Schlemiel, 05-27-47; Last Show of the 1946-47 Season, 06-03-47; Willie Lump-Lump, Fireman, 09-23-47; The Big Card Game, 10-07-47; Rehearsal for October 14, 1947 Broadcast, 10-12-47. 1.
