Heston:  I have only five words for you: From my cold, dead hands.

Moore:  Just ten days after the Columbine killings, despite the pleas of a community in mourning, Charlton Heston came to Denver and held a large pro-gun rally for the National Rifle Association.

Heston:  Good morning.  Thank you all for coming and thank you for supporting your organization.  I also want to applaud your courage in coming here today.  I have a message from the mayor, Mr. Wellington Webb, the mayor of Denver.  He sent me this, and it says, "Don't come here.  We don't want you here."  I said to the mayor, "This is our country.  As Americans we're free to travel wherever we want in our broad land."  Don't come here?  We're already here.

Daniel’s father:  I am here today, because my son Daniel would want me to be here today.  If my son Daniel was not one of the victims, he would be here with me today.  Something is wrong in this country.  When a child can grab a guns, grab a gun so easily, and shoot a bullet into the middle of a child's face, as my son experienced, something is wrong.  But the time has come to come to understand that a Tech9 semi-automatic 30-bullet weapon like that that killed my son, is not used to kill deer.  It has no useful purpose.  It is time to address this problem.

Heston:  We have work to do, hearts to heal, evil to defeat and a country to unite.  We may have differences, yes, and we will again suffer tragedy almost beyond description.  But when the sun sets on Denver tonight, and forever more, let it always set on we the people, secure in our land of the free and home of the brave.  I, for one, plan to do my part.  Thank you.

Dispatcher:  Jefferson County 911.

Teacher:  Yes, I'm a teacher at Columbine High School.  There is a student here with a gun.  He just shot out a window.

Dispatcher:  Okay, has anybody been injured, ma’am?

Teacher:  I haven't checked.  Yes.

Dispatcher:  Okay.

Teacher:   Yes.  And the school is in a panic, and I'm in the library.  I've got students down.  Under the tables, kids!  Heads under the table!  I saw a student outside!  I was on hall duty…oh dear God.  Okay, I was on hall duty, I saw a gun!  I said, "What's going on out there?!"  He turned the gun straight at us and he shot, and my God, the window went out.  And the kid standing there with me, I think he got hit.

Dispatcher:  We've got help on the way, ma'am.

Teacher:  Okay.

Dispatcher:  Okay?

Teacher:  Oh God!

Dispatcher:  Stay on line with me.

Teacher:  Oh God!

Moore:  When the shooting was over, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had killed twelve students and one teacher.  Dozens of others were wounded by the over 900 rounds of ammo that were fired.  It is believed that the guns that they used were all legally purchased at stores and gun shows.  And many of the bullets were bought at the Littleton K-Mart just down the street.

Reporter:  Harris's diary also detailed ideas about hijacking an airplane and crashing it into New York City.  Some may characterize that as fantasy...

Moore:  In the end, they turned the guns on themselves.

Girl A:  And then he came into the library, shot everybody around me, then put a gun to my head and asked if we all wanted to die and...

Girl B:  We started hearing shots in the hall, and then they came in and they all told us to get under the desk and we all got under the desk and then they started coming in the library and opening fire...

Girl A:  I just started screaming and crying and telling them not to shoot me.  And so he shot the girl, he shot her in the head in front of me.  Then he shot the black kid, because he was black.

Fennell:  I, I think that the couple of things, Columbine did a couple of things.  One is that it changed, it changed how we talk.  That's the first thing.  Because…

Moore:  How's that?

Fennell:  Well, for instance, if I say "Columbine," everybody knows what it means.  I don't have to explain to you that Columbine..., er…

Moore:  Is a what?  What's wrong?

Fennell:  Nothing’s wrong, just...

Moore:  What's wrong?

Fennell:  I... I just... sometimes Columbine bothers me.  I'll be fine.  Just a minute.

Moore:  That's okay, that's okay.

Fennell:  Um...  There... there's something, something overwhelming about that kind of... viciousness, that kind of predatory action, that kind of indiscriminate, uh, killing.

(April 20, 1999)

(Largest one day bombing by U.S. in Kosovo War)

Reporter:  Twenty-two NATO missiles fell on the village of Bogutovac near Kraljevo.  Deadly cargo was dropped upon the residential part of the village.

President Clinton:  We're striking hard at Serbia's machinery of repression, while making a deliberate effort to minimize harm to innocent people.

Reporter:  On the hit list were a local hospital and primary school.

(One Hour Later)

President Clinton:  We all know there has been a terrible shooting at a high school in Littleton, Colorado.  I hope the American people will be praying for the students, the parents and the teachers.  And, er, we'll wait for events to unfold and then there'll be more to say.


It’s 4:30 in the morning.  A crowd of people waits for the sunrise.  The sun’s rays turn the mountainsides red.  The northern Alps are very popular with climbers in Japan.  Kamikochi, which lies in a mountain valley, is known as the gateway to this region.  The name Kamikochi originally meant the place where the God descends.  These climbers love these mountains so much they’ve been visiting numerous times.  It’s not only the mountains that are beautiful.  In Kamikochi, the star-filled night sky awaits you.  Sometimes special events are held at the unique mountain hut.  Every year more than 1,000,000 tourists visit Kamikochi.  However, the area is only open from April through to November.  Access is strictly controlled to protect the nature.  During summer, for 50 days, local people protect the climbers with their own mountain rescue service.  Welcome to Kamikochi, a mountain paradise open for a limited time only.   

Camerlengo:  Professor Langdon.  Mr. Langdon, you are correct that I may grant you access to the archives.

Langdon:  Thank you, Padre.

Camerlengo:  Er, I said that you were correct that I may, not, not that I will.  Christianity’s most sacred codices are in that archive.  Given your recent entanglement with the Church, there is a question I’d like to ask you first, here in the office of His Holiness.  Do you believe in God, sir?

Langdon:  Father, I simply believe that religion…

Camerlengo:  I did not ask if you believe what man says about God.  I asked if you believe in God.

Langdon:  I’m an academic.  My mind tells me I will never understand God.

Camerlengo:  And your heart?

Langdon:  Tells me I’m not meant to.  Faith is a gift that I have yet to receive.

Camerlengo:  Be delicate with our treasures.

Dr. Vetra:  The antimatter is suspended there in an airtight nanocomposite shell with electromagnets in each end.  But if it were to fall out of suspension and come in contact with matter, say the bottom of the canister, then the two opposing forces would annihilate one another violently.

Rocher:  And what might cause it to fall out of suspension?

Dr. Vetra:  The battery going dead.  Which it will, just before midnight.

Rocher:  What kind of annihilation?  How violent?

Dr. Vetra:  A cataclysmic event.  A blinding explosion equivalent to about five kilotons.

Langdon:  Vatican City will be consumed by light.

Rocher:  Those are the exact words the kidnapper used.

Recorded voice of the kidnapper:  We will destroy your four pillars.  We will brand your preferiti and sacrifice them on the altars of science, then bring your church down upon you.  Vatican City will be consumed by light.  A shining star at the end of the Path of Illumination.

Langdon:  It’s the ancient Illuminati threat: destruction of Vatican City through light.  Four pillars, that’s your kidnapped cardinals.

Chrsitopher Springate: Now I have to admit I haven’t read a single novel by Ishiguro, but the good news is I have Dulcie Smart with me from DW Culture and you've read them all, haven’t you?

Dulcie Smart: Oh you flatter me, Christopher.  I am a real fan, and two of his novels are among my favorite books of all time...

Chrsitopher Springate : Well, my first question is which one should we definitely, should we start with?  That’s the question I am asking myself.

Dulcie Smart: Mmm, looking at you I would say “Remains of the Day” because it’s very accessible.  This is his most famous novel.  It won the Booker Prize.  It was made into a magnificent film starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. (中略)

Chrsitopher Springate: Ishiguro has an interesting biography.  He is a British writer but not born in Britain.  Does that play a role in his writing?

Dulcie Smart: Absolutely.  His parents are Japanese.  He came to England when he was five.  He didn’t go back to Japan for 29 years after that.  And yet he wrote about Japan.  He wrote about this other world.  But we can listen to him talking about this.

Kazuo Ishiguro: I’ve always said throughout my career that, although I’ve grown up in this country and I am educated in this country, a large part of my way of looking at the world, my artistic approach, is Japanese, because I was brought up  by my Japanese parents, speaking in Japanese inside the Japanese home.  And so I think I’ve always looked at the world partly through my parents’ eyes, as we all do.  So I’ve always had a part of me that is Japanese.

Chrsitopher Springate: Kazuo Ishiguro, the Nobel Prize winner for literature this year.  And Dulcie Smart is helping us to understand why.  Thank you very much, Dulcie.

Dulcie Smart: Thank you, Christopher.

Vincenzo: The Illuminati?  They disappeared hundreds of years ago.

Langdon: Did they?  Look at that again.  It’s an ambigram.  It’s the same image forward and backward.  Now, that’s common for a symbol like a yin and yang or a swastika, but that’s a word.  That Illuminati ambigramatic symbol has been considered a myth for 400 years.  Supposedly, in the 16th century some artist created it as a tribute to Galileo’s love of symmetry.  It was only gonna be revealed when the Illuminati had amassed enough power to resurface and carried out their final goal.  I wrote a book about it.(中略)

Vincenzo:  Four cardinals were kidnapped from their quarters inside the Vatican sometime between 3 and 5 a.m. this morning.  Shortly afterward, that document was sent to the Office of the Swiss Guard along with the threat (that) the cardinals will be publicly executed one per hour, beginning at 8 p.m. tonight in Rome.

Langdon:  Conclave…

Vincenzo:  Was to begin today.  We’ve postponed its start for a few hours, a story of illness.  There are no suspicions, yet.

Langdon:  What do you want from me?

The Ring of the Fisherman, which bears the official papal seal, must be destroyed immediately following the pope’s death.  The papal apartment is then sealed for nine days of mourning, a period known as sede vaconte: the time of the empty throne.  Over the last several days, Catholic leaders from every corner of the world have flocked to Rome, shocked by the sudden death of this progressive and beloved pope.(中略) At the end of the mourning period, the College of Cardinals will lock itself behind the doors of the Sistine Chapel for conclave, the process by which they will choose a new leader for the world’s one billion Catholics, who now find their Church at a crossroads, its ancient traditions threatened by a modern world.

The communist country (= North Korea) said on Sunday that it had successfully tested out a hydrogen bomb, an (1. extremely) dangerous nuclear weapon.


Paula Hancocks(記者)

Hydrogen bombs have never been used before in warfare.  Atomic bombs have.  (2. This is what) the US dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima back in 1945, ultimately killing more than (3. 200,000) people.  But the H-bomb is (4. at least) hundreds of times more powerful than the A-bomb.  North Korea first claimed back in January 2016 that it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb.  (5. If it does in fact have) this capability today, it has joined a very select club.  Only the US, Russia, (6. the UK), France, and China have carried out confirm tests of hydrogen bombs.


Will Ripley(記者)

I don’t get any indication from my trip just last week to Pyongyang that North Korea wants to start a war with the United States.  I think it’s the (7. opposite).  But the fear is that this is so much provocation in the region and one misstep (8. could cause) this region to stumble into war, because that’s how wars often began.  It’s not an intentional act, but you stumble into a war, like (9. World War I).  That’s the fear out here right now.

Bond: Hello? Uh, breakfast for one at nine, please… Green figs, yoghurt, coffee very black… Thank you.

T: You look surprised. I thought you were expecting me.
B: Oh, so you’re Tatiana Romanova.
T: My friends call me Tania.
B:Mine call me James Bond. Well, now that we’ve been properly introduced… 
T: Careful. Guns upset me. 
B: I’m sorry I’m a bit, eh… upset myself.
T: You look just like your… photograph.
B:  You’re the one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen. 
T: Thank you, but I think my mouth is too big.
B: No, it’s the right size… for me, that is. Yes. Is it here?
T: What?
B: The decoding machine- the lector.
T: Must we talk about it now?
B: Or is it at the Russian Consulate? 
T: Umm… Yes.
B: Yes. I would need a plan of the place. If you could get one, we could meet at the Saint Sofia Mosque, like we were tourists.
T: Why don’t you ask me that… later?
B: Now what are you looking for?
T: The scar, you see, I know all about you… from your file. 
B: Hmm, you do? Well, I hope you’re not, uh… disappointed.
T: I will tell you, in the morning. 


So that’s when I said, “That’s not a bulldog.  That’s my girlfriend.”  And that concludes another traditional Yale information session.  Any questions before we start the tour?  Yes.  What year was Yale founded?  Great question.  Yale was founded in 1701.  Thanks.  That’s actually all I wanted to know.  Bye.  Is it true that all Yale professors teach?  Yet another great question.  It is true that every tenured professor at Yale teaches undergraduates.  So even a freshman may learn from a Nobel Prize winner.  Who are you?  Any more questions?  What happened to the original ???? video?  No more?  Really?  Great.  I have a question.  Why did you choose Yale?  When I was a senior in high school, I felt like I didn’t belong.  I had zero friends.  No plans for the weekends, cause I always broke out into song.  But when I applied to college and got my letters in the mail, I wanted to hail from a college called Harvard.  But then I got rejected and went to Yale.  Welcome to the world’s largest bathroom stall.  From hookers to hobos we’ve got them all.  That’s just around the grads and the tazing only adds to why I chose Yale.  And gale arts and science never crash…  Shut the fuck up and give me all your cash.  It happens here quite a bit.  Come on.  Come on.  And trust me, you’ll get used to it.  Fuck you!  O-o-o-oh.  And that’s why I chose Yale.  Given the crime-ridden streets of New Haven, you’ll probably wanna spend most of your time here inside one of our twelve Residential Colleges.  These colleges are co-ed, unfortunately.  But rest assured, they are much more than just a living space.  For all four years we’ll all reside      

Admissions officer:
 One of the reasons I chose Yale was for its housing system.  Before students arrive as freshmen, they're randomly assigned to one of twelve smaller communities called Residential Colleges.  These colleges have nothing to do with academic subjects or extracurricular activities.  But rest assured, they're quite a bit more than just living spaces.  Excuse me?

Boy A:  Yeah, admissions officer?

Admissions officer:  Tell us a bit more about ... Residential Colleges.

Boy A:  Sure thing.  Students here at Yale come from everywhere around - with every type of interest that can possibly be found.  Do our passions divide us?  No, our colleges provide us with family and common ground.  For all four years we'll all reside together in colleges, united by pride.  With such great facilities to hone your abilities, you'll never wanna go outside.

Girl A:  Every college has a dining hall with a salad bar and grill and organic options for every meal.

Boy B:  I'm gonna eat my fill.

Boy C:  Each one has a common room, which we could not live without, to study or to meet in groups, or simply to hang out.

Girl B:  And when the dining halls are closed there's butteries for snacks

Boy D:  And if you need a study break, there's game rooms to relax.

Girl C:  I can get to my college library without stepping foot outside.

Boy E:  And just right down the hallway, my clothes are washed and dried.

Girl D:  I work out in my college gym, a mere two floors below.  Then I meet my friends for rehearsal in the dance studio.

Boy F:  There are tons of music practice rooms where I can hone my skills.

Boy G:  We even have a movie theater.

Boy H:  This one always gives me chills!

Girl E:  We don't have normal dorms at Yale.  Instead, we live in suites, so you may have a roommate.

Girl F:  Uuh - we have matching sheets!

Girl E:  Outside there's a common room, so come and stay a while.  There's space for couches and TV's or a lava lamp if that's your style. 

Admissions officer:
  ...and that's why this is such an important decision, because it is one that will follow you now, and into the future.  And that concludes another traditional Yale information session.  There will be a guided tour beginning in 15 minutes.  In the meantime, I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Boy:  Yes, um... When was Yale founded?

Admissions officer:  Great question.  Yale was founded in 1701.  Oh, um yes, you.

Girl:  Is it true that all Yale professors teach?

Admissions officer:  Another great question.  It is true that every tenured Professor in Yale college teaches undergraduates, so even a freshman might be taking a class from a Nobel Prize winner.

Woman:  Uuh.

Admissions officer:  Any more questions?

Girl:  Yeah.  I have a question.  Why did you choose Yale?

Admissions officer:  When I was a senior in high school, colleges called out my name.  Every day I'd debate where to matriculate, but every place seemed the same.  Yet after I went through the options only one choice remained.  I wanted to hail from a college called Yale.

Now let me explain...

It's a place where you'll learn quintessential knowledge, and you can live in a Residential College, and you can put your hearts into all the liberal arts.  And that's why I chose Yale.  Of course, you'll get a first-rate education, but also thrive on classmates' conversation.  Here is where we thread Shakespeare Studies and Pre-Med, o-o-o-oh, and that's why I chose Yale.

Donald Trump(アメリカ大統領)

“My fellow Americans.  On Tuesday Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on 1. innocent civilians.  Using a deadly nerve agent Assad choked out the lives of helpless 2. men, women, and children.  It was a slow and brutal 3. death for so many.  Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack.  No child of God 4. should ever suffer such horror.  Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the air field in Syria 5. from where the chemical attack was launched.”


Andrei Beketov(ユーロニュース記者)

“It’s very motive subject and the President Trump was 6. probably moved by pictures of, you know, poisoned children and women.  Do you understand this motive, and would Russia 7. do the same if it had means?”


Vladimir Chizhov(駐EUロシア大使)

“It is the 8. duty of every leader to take decisions not based on personal 9. emotions but rather on hard facts.  And unfortunately this decision on air strikes was taken by Washington, eh, 10. without hard facts in hand.”


??????? (アフリカニュースネットワーク記者)

“Mr. President, did you 11. give an order to strike Khan Sheikhun with chemical weapon last Tuesday?”


Bashar al-Assad(シリア大統領)

“There was no order to make any attack.  We don’t have any chemical weapons.  We gave up all arsenals three years ago.  Even if we have them, 12. we wouldn’t use them.  And we have never used our chemical arsenal 13. in our history.”
