Do you need a good film about sport for the classroom or for a rainy day activity? This filmography grew out of the editor's search for films suitable for use in the classroom that would enhance the teaching of university level sport history classes. Educators, recreation leaders, summer camp programmers, or other groups exploring the complex world of sport will find this filmography useful. Included are productions that treat historical, sociological, psychological, philosophical, and other themes about life manifested through sport. The filmography briefly describes the content of each film and video. In addition, each entry provides the applicable age range, from elementary school through adult; the chronological setting, from the ancient world to the present; availability in film or video format; availability in color or black and white; and production date, if known. With alphabetical, topical, biographical, and distributor indexes. Most of the films and videos listed are available at no charge except handling costs. A word about what this filmography is not: it is not a collection of commercial Hollywood features or "how to do it" productions.
It is a collection of films and videos that have educational applications in a limitless number of settings.
