This edition of The American Experience examines the life of Amelia Earhart, one of America's pioneering aviatrixes. Narrated by Kathy Bates, the video takes a long look at the events of Earhart's life. The film also traces the arc of the publicity surrounding Earhart, and shows how her awareness of her own importance as a symbol may have led her to take chances she shouldn't have. The video uses a combination of interviews and footage to construct an engaging portrait. Those with an interest in aviation or pioneering women will likely find it of value.

After a sudden attack on the United States leaves numerous Americans dead, the American government vows retribution against the perpetrator. The year: 1916. After defeating Spain at the turn of the century, the United States is emerging as a power to be reckoned with on the world stage. President Woodrow Wilson sends General "Black Jack" Pershing into Mexico in pursuit of Pancho Villa and his troops. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Linda Hunt, this installment of the PBS television series The American Experience explores Villa's motives for attack, and chronicles the failure of Pershing's force to even catch sight of Villa. The expedition marked the first use by the U.S. Army of motorized "cavalry" in a campaign, although most of the truck drivers were far more experienced at driving mules. Director Hector Galan includes rare film footage of Pershing's troops in the field, as well as postcards and cartoons of the era that marked the event. Highlights include interviews with various witnesses and two of Villa's soldiers, Jose Maria Varela and Enrique Alferez. Written by Paul Espinosa, this documentary won the Western Writers of America Spur Award for Best Written Documentary and the National Conference of Christians and Jews' Imagen Award for Best Documentary.

Malcolm X rose from the streets to become one of the most influential leaders of the civil rights movement. His adventure-filled path to public service is detailed in the documentary Malcolm X: Make It Plain. Malcolm X first connected with the Nation of Islam while in prison. His subsequent duties within the organization led to a role as spokesperson and philosopher. While his comments were often controversial and always impassioned, he brought much attention to the struggle for African-Americans' equal treatment under the law. The release features interviews with the many famous faces that populated the late leader's life including Maya Angelou, Alex Haley, Ossie Davis, and Malcolm X's own family. Malcolm X: Make It Plain is narrated by Alfre Woodard.

This edition of The American Experience chronicles a dark chapter of American history, the refusal of this nation to come to the aid of German Jews in the months and years before and during World War II. Hal Linden narrates this tale which uses the story of one German immigrant, Kurt Klein, to illustrate the problems of an entire ethnic group. The obstacles Klein faced in reaching America, and the further obstructions he struggled against to free his parents are well chronicled. Klein's struggle is presented as a race against time as Hitler's policies toward the Jewish people become clear. This documentary is an unflinching look at a black episode of world history and a sobering reminder that responsibility for the events of the Holocaust can not be laid solely at German feet.
