Index for TIGHAR videos
« on: July 03, 2013, 08:46:22 AM »

A Forum member wrote me today: "What I wanted to suggest was an index of videos and links.  While u-tube has a useful search function, and can find things like 'TIGHAR' and 'Amelia,' it seemed to me that TIGHAR would benefit by having an index with brief descriptions like has been done with other research materials."

I don't have time to work on this at present.

The purpose of this thread is simply to list and briefly describe TIGHAR's video resources.

If people start arguing about the content or meaning of the videos in this thread, I will delete such posts without comment and without regret.  You'll have to take the discussion to a separate thread.

The first resource to consult is "The TIGHAR Channel" on YouTube.  You can subscribe to the channel and be alerted by e-mail when TIGHAR uploads a new video.  I believe that there are 26 videos available there.
LTM,

Interviews with Tom King
« Reply #1 on: July 05, 2013, 07:18:52 AM »

(I'll start, by copying and pasting verbatim from threads I find.  To save space I'll leave-out the attributions, unless someone thinks that's important.)
Below are a series of links from The Interview with Tom King thread:

Tom King was on:
Indiana Jones..... Myth's, Realities and 21st Century Archaeology

January 11, 2012
Hosted by Dr. Joseph Schuldenrein
Tom is on for the whole hour, and discusses how he got involved, the navigational logic, post-loss radio messages, the search for Amelia, finding the bones, searching in Fiji, and TIGHAR's hopes for the Symposium in 2012 and the potential for a deep water search after that.
_______________
There is an on line tv show called "Out of the Past" where Dr. King is interviewed on two half hour episodes. This is from last summer and is quite up to date. You can find it here.
________________
Fairfax, Virginia's Public Access Television (Channel 10) has posted online the 3rd installment of their series of interviews with Dr. Thomas King. here.  Lee Shephard and Chuck Langdon discuss the ongoing search and explore the archaeological work.  This segment was recorded in July, 2012 and lasts 28 minutes.

British Pathe' news reels

Links from the British Pathe "A Tragedy of the Pacific" thread:

Nice shots of Amelia, Fred, the Electra, The USS Colorado and its search planes, and the Lexington. Sort of brings it all to life.

Cheers,

Here is a fun one.

Richie opens and drinks two coconuts in 36 seconds

Oddly, the quality of this video seems to have degraded since it was first uploaded.  How does that happen?

And the Aerial Tour of Nikumaroro is probably worth calling out individually.

Fuel consumption, and overview of Niku hypothesis
« Reply #10 on: July 07, 2013, 12:01:50 PM »

@ 8:40 of this video, you will see some work Ric did with Covington Research Laboratories to research this problem of fuel consumption versus requirements of charging the battery on the Electra.  This won't answer every possible question on the radio signals, but it's a good video presentation of this problem and a good overview of the Niku Hypothesis.

(copied from "Amelia Earhart...The Price of Courage" thread)
Hey ya all...Glancing at several videos on youtube on Amelia and ran across this one. I've never seen this one before and found it very very interesting. Anyway, did notice that Amelia had a passion for one particular piece of cloth that she used in her hairbows and around her neck. It may be just a coincidence, but thought that black was very unusual color to be used alot through most of her life. Also, part of the video depicts Amelia's flying capability as a pilot. That in itself is interesting!!! Overall, its an awesome video into most of her life. Pictures that many of you like myself, have never seen before! Enjoy!!!

<Ric's comment:>
The title of the film is an odd reversal of AE's expressed belief that "courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace."  So what then is the price of courage?

The imagery used in the documentary is often misleading and does not show what the narration implies is being shown.  The narrative is basically a rehash of the Earhart legend as promoted by George Putnam and Earhart herself during her lifetime and endlessly reiterated and embellished by worshipful biographers like Doris Rich.  Some of the narration in the documentary is outright fiction, like the bit about AE being kicked out of a finishing school for "stunts like walking on the roof in her nightgown."  And don't get me started about Gore Vidal and his supposed memories.  Total hogwash.  The only bright spot in the whole charade is Brad Washburn.  Brad was the real deal - a true explorer and pioneer.  In the early years of the Earhart Project I talked to Brad several times about his experience with AE. His assessment of Earhart as "pathologically optimistic" but totally irresponsible in her preparations for the flight is, I think, perceptive and accurate. Brad died in 2007.

The makers of the documentary had an agenda and they changed the story to make Earhart the person they wanted her to be.  Their message seems to be that the price of courage is death.  I beg to differ.
