Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of video elements (1 inch magnetic, 3/4 inch U-matic, VHS), 1/4 inch audiotape, and 16mm film documenting seven productions. The 1986 production "Looking at Earth" (also known as the "Radar Show") was a companion show to the National Air and Space Museum exhibition with the same name. The exhibit was concerned with shuttle radar imaging, and looked at the history of aerial and orbital views of the Earth, from camera-carrying pigeons to aircraft to satellites. "The Reel Jungle," 1988, was a companion film to the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service Exhibition, "Tropical Rainforests: A Disappearing Treasure," which showed the myths and misconceptions that artists and filmmakers have created about tropical rainforests. The film won a 1989 CINE Golden Eagle Award. "Mirrors on the Universe: The MMT Story," 1979, documented the construction of the Multiple Mirror Telescope and its potential for scientific discovery. "Museums and Community," 1988, was a video released by the Office of Museum Programs, which was produced by the Smithsonian Kellogg Project in Museum Education to show how museums can become more involved in their communities. "Enter Life," a 1986 animated film, accompanied the National Museum of Natural History exhibition "The Earliest Traces of Life." The exhibition and film showed the critical stages thought to be involved in the establishment of living things on our planet based on Kenneth McCarn Towe's assessment of possible scenarios and probable hazards early life on Earth may have encountered. "Communication: It's More Than Sound," 1982, was a training film for guards, information desk personnel, and docents for assisting hearing-impaired visitors. "Phone Philm," 1976, was a companion film to the National Museum of American History exhibition "Person to Person" in the Electricity Hall that marked the 100th anniversary of the telephone.
