Hi Karen,
RE: Nigeria
I recommend this program:

Nigeria: Sharia Law
Newly released after 15 years of military dictatorship, both Christians and
Muslims in Nigeria are embracing their separate faiths with a renewed vigor.
But amidst the prayers for paradise, violence has erupted and now religious
programs threaten to engulf Africa's most populous nation. The Christian
South blames the Moslem north for imposing Sharia law. Sharia is the strict
Islamic code embracing medieval punishments like amputation, stoning and
beheading for breaches of the Koranic code. The Governor of the northern
state of Zamfara believes Sharia will solve many social problems. Drastic
measures have proven hugely popular in a nation ridden with corruption.
Indeed, many say Nigeria's civil conflict is as much about politics as
faith. There's the old rivalry between the three major tribal groups, a
widening gap between rich and poor, and a struggle between those who support
democracy and those who prefer the bad old days of military rule. Produced
by ABC Australia. Website link: http://www.chiptaylor.com/ttlmnp3107-.cfm

Hi,
Does anyone have any suggestions for a DVD or DVDs that are about the
people and culture of Nigeria. We have a patron that is very insistent that
we buy something on this topic and I'm having trouble locating anything
suitable.
thanks,

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues
relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control,
preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and
related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective
working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication
between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and
distributors.
