Big update to Docuseek2!

Disturbing the Peace stillWe have added almost 200 titles to The Docuseek2 Complete Collection in our latest update. Of special note, we have added The Life Series from The Television Trust for the Environment, via Bullfrog Films. The series includes 136 programs on the impact of globalization on ordinary people around the world.

Other new Bullfrog Films titles include Disturbing the Peace, about Palestinians and Israelis, sworn to be enemies, who challenged their fate and joined together to say "enough"; and The Activists, about opponents of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: their lives, the tactics they used, and the historical context of their work.

We have also added close to 50 titles from The Fanlight Collection, important films with a focus on healthcare, mental health, professional ethics, aging and gerontology, disabilities, and family issues.

New Icarus Films titles include the two-part The End of the Ottoman Empire, one of the central events shaping today's Middle East; and the series A Day With..., where eight African filmmakers each present a portrait of a different West African child.
