A touching true story about a 35-year-old baseball coach who becomes one of the oldest rookies ever to play major league baseball. Jim Morris dropped out of minor league baseball because of an injury to his pitching arm, but 12 years later he is inspired by the young men on his high school team. He promises that if they make the playoffs, he'll try out as a pitcher on a professional baseball team. When the team makes the playoffs, Jim tries out for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and steps up to the mound as the oldest major league rookie in nearly three decades.

The first town of over 1 million people was built more than 2000 years ago. Without any of our modern conveniences, and what we would consider necessities today, how did they function? Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill explores the remains of these ancient megalopolises, explaining how to make a city work without the benefits of modern technology. He first journeys across stunning locations in Greece to find out how Athens gave birth to the idea of a city run by free citizens. Andrew then reveals how Rome surpassed all those cities from the ancient world that had gone before.

The fifth of a series of documentary films that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future. Director Michael Apted returns twenty-eight years on as the subjects, now aged thirty-five, talk about their lives and their hopes for the future.

If ever there was a love story to break your heart, Puccini's opera La boheme is it. La boheme ranks with Madama Butterfly as the most frequently performed opera today. In spite of its popularity it is, in its own way, revolutionary, taking the spotlight off the kings, queens, warriors and heroes of 19th century opera to focus on more realistic subjects.
