From Mice to Men?
Can we learn anything about human behavior from observing animals in laboratory experiments? “From Mice to Men?” features interviews with psychiatrists and psychologists discussing some famous animal experiments. It reveals how these experiments not only cause animal suffering, but are inapplicable to humans.
VHS. Running time: 28 minutes

Hidden Crimes
This film presents a detailed look at animal research, including the horrendous cruelty involved and also documents how such research has led to false conclusions.  We see the hidden world of animal experimentation where grant-hungry pseudo-scientists are responsible not only for the torture of millions of animals and the destruction of our health, but also for the collapse of our economy. The only documentary that deals with the devastation to human health caused by the fraud of vivisection.
VHS. Running time: 1 hour and 18 minutes

Inside Biosearch
A whistleblower and an undercover investigator spent months documenting violation at the Biosearch testing laboratory in Philadelphia.  Violations included falsifying records and test results, subjecting unanesthetized animals to painful procedures, performing unnecessary animal tests not required by law, inadequate veterinary care, failure to provide food and water, inadequate sanitation, and routine mishandling of the animals. Findings show that while many companies tell consumers they don't use the notorious lethal dose poisoning tests -- they do; while saying that laboratory technicians treat animals humanely -- they don't; and while promising they only conduct tests required by law -- they actually kill animals to protect themselves from consumer lawsuits. 
VHS. Running time: 14 minutes

Is Animal Research Necessary for Human Health?
The medical profession has claimed that animal research is the basis for all medical advances. However, in recent years, growing numbers of doctors and researchers challenge this assumption. This lively program  with two such medical professionals looks at the results of animal research and disputes  whether such research is applicable to humans.
VHS. Running time: 28 minutes

Lethal Medicine
Produced by Javier Burgos and Hoorik Davoudian for The Nature of Wellness, this video exposes the inherent medical and scientific invalidity of “the animal model of human disease” and the consequent failure of the biomedical research community to find cures for cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, AIDS, muscular dystrophy, or any of the many other diseases that have plagued humankind for decades.  This documentary focuses on the fraud of the animal research industry at the expense of humans more than animals, but still presents a strong case against animal testing.
VHS. Running time:  1 hour
Ages:  High school and up.

Medical Turning Point
This video is a fast-paced half hour exploring the controversy over the use of animals in medical research and presents seldom heard but valid scientific arguments against the use of animals.  Dr. Henry Heimlich, developer of "The Heimlich Maneuver" discusses current research at his institute, the politics of animal research, and how it affects his work and that of his colleagues.  Dr. John McDougall discusses specifics of how important the role of prevention can be in limiting or even eliminating certain common killer diseases.  And Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine questions the use of chimpanzees in AIDS research; how the stress of confinement affects the immune system of animals in laboratories; and how the immune system plays a key role in disease. 
VHS. Running time: 28 minutes
Ages: Over 13

No Gravy for the Cat
An expose of vivisector John Orem’s ride on the federal grant gravy train that tells the remarkable story of how five cats slated for death at Texas Tech escaped on the underground railroad.

Premarin: Prescription for Animal Cruelty
Worldwide, women are joining the campaign against the menopause drugs Premarin and Prempak-C, the only estrogen drugs made from horses’ urine.  Women are outraged that the drugs’ maker, Wyeth-Ayerst, keeps tens of thousands of pregnant mares tied up in stalls so small they cannot turn around or lie down comfortably.  The mares’ foals, considered mere “byproducts,” are often butchered for dog food or dinner tables in France and Japan.
VHS. Running time: 13 minutes

Probing the Mind of the Vivisector
Many believe that people who use animals in research are unfeeling towards animals in the laboratory. This insightful program with a former animal experimenter examines how the researcher feels about his animal subjects in light of society’s attitudes about animals.
VHS. Running time: 28 minutes

Proctor & Gamble’s Animal Tests-A & B

Excellent video encompassing the controversial LD50 and Draize Irritancy tests with graphic footage from inside a Gillette Company laboratory. Graphic. 
VHS. Running time: 12 minutes

Silver Spring Monkeys
This is the story of the first-ever police raid on a research laboratory.  PETA co-founder Alex Pacheco documented this landmark case of animal abuse during his four-month undercover investigation of the Institute for Behavioral Research in Silver Spring, Maryland.  Surgically crippled, the 17 primates at IBR were tormented in attempts to make them use their deadened limbs, The conditions shown in this videotape led to the revocation of IBR's federal funds, the closing of the laboratory, the confiscation of the primates, and the first and only criminal conviction of an experimenter on charges of animal cruelty in the US.


Suffer the Animals   
The key concept in this documentary is replacements. The point is made that science has reached the stage where machines can analyze the exact make-up of a substance and computers design drug molecules to fit precisely the nerve receptors in the human body.  Nonetheless, animals continue to be used as tools for research to the extent that during the time it takes to view this documentary, 8,000 animals have died as victims of research.  This film is an effective response to the common concern that people raise -- if we don't use animals, then how can we test for safety; determine toxicity; develop cures; and understand diseases such as cancer. This film assumes the viewer has some knowledge of science.  Graphic scenes, disturbing military footage. 
VHS. Running time: 23 minutes
Ages: high school and older

Tools for Research
This documentary raises a number of questions about animal research: how many animals are used? Are they protected by law? Does animal research help humans? Is it necessary today?  No one knows for sure how many animals are used in American laboratories.  Estimates range from 60 million to 200 million a year.  Much of the confusion surrounding the issue stems from the secrecy with which the experiments are carried out.  The public is not allowed, even when the experiments are funded with tax dollars, to observe lab conditions or to obtain key information about ongoing research.  This film was made to penetrate the wall of silence that surrounds much of today's animal research and testing. 
VHS. Running time: 37 minutes
Ages: 13 and up

The Truth
Short video depicting undercover horrors occurring at Huntington Life Sciences including physical abuse such as throwing a monkey into a cage, puppies screaming in pain and a restrained monkey about to be experimented on who is obviously terrified. Graphic footage of a dead, gutted beagle, a monkey being skinned and dissected while still alive and experimental procedures with vivisectors hooting and mocking.
VHS. Running time: 5 minutes

Unnecessary Fuss
The abuse documented on this videotape led U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Margaret Heckler to terminate the brain-damage experiment on primates at the University of Pennsylvania's Head Injury Clinic, which had been receiving $1 million a year in federal money for the experiment. This rare footage, filmed by the researchers themselves, provides a unique and in-depth view of how some animal researchers conduct experiments on animals in an Ivy League institution.  One vivisector comments, "You better hope the anti-vivisection people don't get a hold of this film."  Shows vivisectors blatant disregard for life, very graphic, very disturbing. 
VHS. Running time: 26 minutes
