Professor Fendelman (Dennis Lill) and his staff perform a brain scan on the skull -- thereby potentially exposing the universe to the wrath of the Fendahl, a malevolent force from Gallifreyan mythology.

It doesn't take long for the Doctor to recognize the skull as an artifact of the Fendahl, a malevolent mythological figure from his home world of Gallifrey. What he doesn't yet realize is that the Fendahl is very much alive, and has infested itself in the body and soul of innocent Thea Ransome (Wanda Ventham).

This Oscar-nominated featurette is a typically felicitous Disney combination of music and live action. In search of big game, hunter Donald Duck stumbles into a strange and wonderous land dominated by numbers: numbers on the ground, numbers in the trees, numbers in the river, even numbered footprints left behind by a walking pencil. The offscreen voice of The Spirit of Adventure informs Donald that he is in Mathmagic Land, immediately dispelling the duck's dismissive attitude that mathematics is "egghead stuff" by immediately highlighting the correlation between math and music. We then travel back in time to Pythagoras, who uses mathematical equations to produce the most beautiful of music. He also disovers the "mathmagic" in the pentagram and the golden rectangle, which can mathematically reproduce itself indefinitely, and is also the foundation of all architecture and scupture. Much to Donald's fascination, he learns that mathematics can even apply to the shapes of nature, from a starfish to a tree, and to such common everyday game as chess, baseball, football, basketball and billiards. Finally, there's the most exciting "game" of all: the shape of things that are discovered and formulated in the human mind. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
Writer/director David Novack examines the conflicting forces that have prompted a potentially explosive conflict between the coal industry and the residents of West Virginia who question the impact of extraction on their quiet way of life. Troubled by the emergence of a coal-based U.S. energy policy, West Virginia activists try their hardest to educate the public about the potentially destructive effect of mining for coal - not only would ground water be rendered toxic, but 1.4 million acres of mountains would be demolished as well. Now forced to do battle with a powerful government that seems to cater especially to industry, these determined activists will go to any lengths necessary in order to get their voices heard and preserve their traditional way of life. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
Includes:Queen of the Elephants (1994) Africa's Elephant Kingdom (1998), MPAA Rating: NR Queen of the Elephants This video chronicles the story of people making a 300-mile journey through the forests of India. Their steeds are mighty Indian elephants, now on the list of endangered species. Author Mark Shand is led by Parbati Barua, who is a Rajah's daughter and elephant driver, through the spectacular Indian countryside. Just as each of the riders is a unique character, each elephant has its own distinctive personality, and the film captures them all with humor and sensitivity. The incredible strength and power of the elephants are illustrated, along with their capacity for love and affection. The viewer gains a deepened appreciation and empathy for the plight of the Indian elephant. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, All Movie Guide Africa's Elephant Kingdom Discovery Channel Pictures/Imax Corporation Michael Caulfield directs this 40-minute Imax documentary about African elephants, traveling over Mount Kilimanjaro, and Kenyan waterfalls, rivers, and forests. A large 60-year-old elephant known as Old Bull (voice of Avery Brooks) recalls the history of his clan and relationships in elephant society -- babies to mothers, mothers to families, and families to clans. Clan members are seen in competition for mates, raising children, and searching for food. With the onset of a severe drought, the clan migrates in a journey across vast stretches of land in search of dwindling sources of food and water, triumphant in one glorious moment when the long-awaited rains finally arrive. Music by Roger Mason. ~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide
Chevigny follows twelve voters as they cast their ballots in an attempt to get their voices heard and their politician of choice elected. As a New York-based ex-felon casts his first vote at the age of fifty, an opinionated factory worker debates gay marriage with his fellow employees, and a harried pollster attempts to maintain both order and sanity as they day wears on and voters line up, Chevigny explores the increasingly tempestuous political climate of the United States by focusing on the diverse views of those who choose to take part in the electoral process. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
