This is a series that explores D. W. Griffith's astounding first year and a half of filmmaking, during which he intuitively began to explore the emotional impact of the techniques and properties of cinema that he would develop into an art form.
- Introduction – The scope of this series – the paper prints.
- Part 1: The Adventures of Dollie – Griffith's first film (June, 1908).
- Part 2: The Power of Editing (July 1908).
- Part 3: Inserts, Masking and Ideological Editing (August 1908).
- Part 4: Four Chases – When to Edit ... and Not (September 1908).

- Leonard Bernstein: A Total Embrace of Music
A celebration of the life and multiple careers of Leonard Bernstein - his writing, teaching, composing and conducting. No musician in history touched so many people so deeply and in so many
ways. Bernstein's major works and recordings are explored, from his first symphony to his Concerto for Orchestra and from his early RCA 78s of the 'forties to his digital DG concert CDs of the 'eighties.
- Wilhelm Furtwängler: Genius Forged in the Cauldron of War
Furtwängler's incomparable artistry was forged in the appalling abyss of Nazi Germany. Under pressure designed to crush a sensitive artist, he transmuted profound suffering into interpretations of astounding power. His saga forces us to confront the terrible collision
of art, society and morality. Furtwängler's most potent recordings are assessed.
- Toscanini - The Recorded Legacy
A survey of the legend and career of "The Maestro," including discussions of his major recordings and a "Top Ten" list. Nowadays, we often listen to Toscanini records with respect but little enthusiasm, only because the late studio recordings to which we are most accustomed fail to convey the wonder and vitality of his concerts and earlier records.
- In Search of the Most Important Record Ever Made (with records by Edouard Colonne)
An overview of the earliest classical 78s, from which we can try to infer the musical ideals and performance practices of the 19th century. One record in particular provides a crucial key to rediscovering the style and outlook of that era and challenges our present notions of interpretive authenticity.
