Dewey DVD Recommendations Friday, June 30, 2017

This week I’m going to recommend the following three Non-Fiction DVDs for your weekend viewing pleasure: Chasing UFOs, Apollo 11: A Night To Remember & The 1930s. 

1. Chasing UFOs (Nat Geo)

This two disc set takes a look at UFO sightings and, unlike many UFO related “documentaries,” this one is put out by National Geographic!

The Dewey number for this DVD is 001.942 CHA

And in Library Land the books on the paranormal can be found in the zeros! So if you’d like to browse through the books on UFOs, haunted places, Big Foot and the supernatural in general — this is your section!

Here’s a link to the StarCat request page for National Geographic’s Chasing UFOs:

2. Apollo 11: A Night To Remember

Our second non-fiction DVD for this week is put out by the BBC and titled Apollo 11: A Night To Remember and contains rare news footage chronicling the journey of the Apollo 11 crew from the moment their ship left the planet, through the first lunar landing and on to their triumphant return to Earth in July of 1969.

The call number for this set is 629.454 APO

And on a Dewey note, if you’re looking for books on space flights check out the Dewey Decimal Section 629.454!

3. The 1930s

This five disc PBS documentary offers a glimpse into the lost world of the 1930s. This set offers a look at how regular Americans lived in the 1930s and what the big concerns and topics of interest were. Episodes include: Surviving The Dust Bowl, Sea Biscuit, The Crash of 1929, The Civilian Conservation Corps and Hoover Dam.

The call number for this set is: 973.917 NIN.

And if you’re looking for books on American history, you should check out the Dewey Decimal section 973 — as there is where you will find them!
