Documentaries from Films on Demand:

Sports Worlds (26:04)
Sustainability is increasingly a consideration in the design of sports facilities. This film shows how these concerns influences architecture for the 2012 London Olympics and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, and the soccer stadium built for remote Manaus, Brazil, for the 2014 World Cup.

Sports for Sale (1:23:28)
This documentary examines the money-driven machines of college football and basketball and the toll they take on the education of athletes and the integrity of the universities they attend. It examines this controversy in college sports and goes on-location to some of the Division I schools where debates over commercialization and academic success are most heated.

Major League Entrepreneurs (59:33)
Filmed at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, this program teams up Mark Cuban, billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks and cofounder of, and Daniel Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins, who made his team one of the most valuable franchises in sports history. Together they discuss being an entrepreneur in the world of professional sports, while M.B.A. students and faculty ask questions about management styles, the lure of owning a sports team, and the impact of salary caps.

Moyers & Company: The Collision of Sports and Politics (56:49)
Discussion of the intersection of sports, politics, and greed. Should college athletes get paid? Should taxpayers bankroll new stadiums that benefit wealthy team owners? The vast gap between sports tycoons and the everyday fans who shell out hard-earned cash to watch their athlete heroes is yet another reflection of the gross inequality between the 1 percent and the rest of society.

Ban College Football: A Debate (1:52:24)
Charges of exploitation and a growing concern for head injury and brain trauma have put college football in the spotlight. Do college football programs—which rake in millions—take advantage of student athletes, or do they provide young men with educational and professional opportunities they might not otherwise have? Do football’s inherent danger and violence have any place in institutions of higher learning?
