"Ultimate Jordan: Deluxe Edition"

Former Chicago Bulls superstar Michael Jordan -- considered the best basketball player of all time -- was the first athlete to sell VHS tapes in big numbers. This seven-disc DVD set features five programs ("Come Fly With Me," "Michael Jordan's Playground," "Airtime," "Above and Beyond" and "His Airness"), as well as many extra features. Sports fans can relive five of Jordan's greatest games from start to finish and watch his Hall of Fame speech.

"Columbo: Mystery Movie Collection"

Fans of the original "Columbo" series wanted to see more of the crime-solving homicide detective, and NBC complied with a series of two-hour movies. This collection features six movies, starring Peter Falk as the beloved Columbo and guest-starring the likes of George Hamilton, Dabney Coleman, Rip Torn, Tyne Daly, Faye Dunaway and others. All six of these made-for-TV films were terrific then and still hold up today. They are: "Caution: Murder Can Be Hazardous to Your Health," "Columbo and the Murder of a Rock Star," "Death Hits the Jackpot," "No Time to Die," "A Bird in the Hand" and "It's All in the Game."

"Carole King: Live in London 1975"

In 1971, Carole King released the album "Tapestry" and the rest is history. She was the most successful female artist of her time, and her music touched millions around the world. The album spent six years on the charts, and this intimate concert was broadcast live from the BBC Studios in London during her first European tour. She had been a successful songwriter, but it was her time to shine in front instead of being in the background. Some of the songs are "It's Too Late," "I Feel The Earth Move," "You've Got A Friend" and "So Far Away."

"The JFK-Nixon Presidential Debates"

Sen. John F. Kennedy and Vice President Richard M. Nixon went face-to-face in a series of debates in their campaign for the presidency. It was 1960 and the first time that television played a role in presidential politics. Nixon, though well prepared, did not come off nearly as well as his opponent. Historians have watched these for years, and have claimed that they contributed to Kennedy winning over the American people and becoming president.
