"Chicago Blackhawks: Stanley Cup Champions 2009-2010"

If you are a fan of hockey, you can relive the excitement of the Chicago Blackhawks' championship season with this program. Not only will you get some highlights from the season, but you can follow the team through the playoffs as they go through Nashville, Vancouver, San Jose and Philadelphia. We go into the locker room and really learn what it takes to be a championship team. There is a lot of celebrating, culminating with the parade in downtown Chicago. This DVD captures a great moment in the history of Chicago sports.

"NHL: Game 7 Collection in Stanley Cup History"

Pure hockey fans understand that there is nothing more exciting than a winner-take-all game seven in the Stanley Cup Finals. It has only happened 14 times, and this seven-disc set includes six complete games and highlights of the rest. It's great to go back in time to watch the various Stanley Cup postgame celebrations.

"The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers"

Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary, this terrific program tells the story how one man can change the world. Daniel Ellsberg had been one of the nation's leading war planners and, acting on his own conscience, leaked over 7,000 pages of top secret documents to The New York Times in 1971. The public had been kept in the dark about the war in Vietnam, and his revelations took the world by storm. It's great to see the whole cast of characters involved, and especially President Nixon, through his tapes, call Ellsberg "the most dangerous man in America." Ellsberg's bravery was a wake-up call to America, ultimately speeding up an end to our involvement in the war.

We learn a lot about Ellsberg himself and what it took to get the media's attention. It takes courage to be a whistle-blower, but in the end, it is scary to realize how much we still don't know about what really happens behind closed doors.

"Elaine Paige Live"

Many people who love the musical stage revere the great Elaine Paige. Called "the first lady" of British musical theater, Paige is one of Andrew Lloyd Weber's favorite singers, and he has included her many times in his shows. Filmed at the State Theatre in Sydney, Australia, this wonderful concert includes some of Paige's favorite songs, including "I Don't Know How to Love Him," "Don't Cry For Me Argentina," "Memory," "As If We Never Said Goodbye," "I Dreamed A Dream" and "With One Look."
