RMS Titanic sank in 1912, a US presidential election year, and in the very first days of the great House of Commons debate on Home Rule for Ireland. The Marconi companies were heroes to the press and the public, who credited them with saving the lives that were saved. JP Morgan, who owned the shipping trust that controlled Titanic´s White Star Line, was a major political target for the trust-busters. And members of the British Cabinet, including the Attorney-General who was to direct (and nobble) the Crown´s case in the Titanic enquiry, were up to their necks in inside trading in Marconi shares. This is the story of how, in Titanic´s loss, 1500 souls were sacrificed to the ´´settled science´´ and ´´scientific consensus´´ of marine engineering. It is also the story of how the US and British loss enquiries were shaped by party politics, corrupted by corrupt politicians and the Marconi Scandal, tainted by the politics of Irish Home Rule, and - finally - salvaged by Oliver Wendell Holmes and the US Supreme Court, and by Lord Mersey´s judgement in the Board of Trade Enquiry and the subsequent International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea. Titanic sank a century ago; but she sails on, the ghost ship of modern law and politics, shaping our world in ways we don´t notice. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stan Jenson.

The veteran political journalist and New York Times best-selling author goes behind the scenes at the White House to recount the dramatic tale of a pivotal period in the Obama presidency, from the game-changing 2010 midterm elections to the beginning of the critical 2012 campaign season - a tumultuous time that tested the president as never before and set the stage for a titanic clash over the future of the nation. After Barack Obama´s first two years as president - during which he navigated the United States through its severest economic crisis since the Great Depression while managing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq - he was faced with a bitterly divided nation and an emboldened political opposition dedicated to impeding his presidency. What followed was a year of political crises and fierce battles that would transform Obama and profoundly shape the terrain for the next election. In Showdown, astute political journalist David Corn chronicles and examines this crucial time in the Obama presidency and its impact on the nation´s future. Drawing on interviews with White House officials, Obama´s inner circle, members of Congress, and others, Corn takes the reader into the Oval Office and the back rooms on Capitol Hill for a fast-paced and gripping account of the major events as they unfolded: the controversial tax-cut deal with Congress in December 2010; the repeal of Don´t Ask/Don´t Tell; the passage of the New START treaty; the near shutdown of the government in early 2011; the revolutionary Arab spring; the killing of Osama bin Laden; the intense, high-wire debt-ceiling negotiations (in which intransigent House Republicans risked the nation´s financial standing); House Speaker John Boehner´s erratic maneuvers during the rise and fall of the grand bargain; and the face-off between Obama and congressional Republicans over how best to create jobs. Corn captures the dilemmas faced by a president assailed by disappointed progr... 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Corn.
