From the News Archives of the CBC comes a two-volume videotape collection capturing key moments in our political history. This resource is an invaluable record of Canadian leaders speaking to Canadians, from Mackenzie King to Jean Chrétien. Each speech is prefaced by informative contextual narratives.
The most important and well-known speeches of modern times. Seen and heard in this original footage are the dramatic highlights of speeches from U.S. Presidents, politicians and world leaders that changed the course of history and inspired millions worldwide. This collection contains three volumes.
Features some of history’s most influential addresses—and continues to have a profound impact on the study of speech. Watch as FDR declares war, Churchill attacks Hitler, Harry Truman announces the bombing of Japan, Lou Gehrig bids farewell to baseball, Martin Luther King Jr. relays his dream, Nixon resigns the presidency, Reagan pleads the Berlin Wall be torn down, and a young Barack Obama ignites a 2004 convention in a speech that would change the course of the country.
This collection of classic speech excerpts contains not only inspiring orations to democratic freedom and the noblest aspects of human endeavor, but also some of the darkest and most despicable speeches delivered in modern times.
