For a less mainstream take on the Gulf War, try contacting
Paper Tiger TV, based out of Rutgers University, I believe.  They produce
interesting short docs crtiquing/analyzing popular culture and contemporary
newsmedia.  I know for a fact they have one specifically on the Gulf War.  I
remember the video being witty, critical of news anchor glorification (Dan
Rather pretending to be in Real Danger, etc), and intelligent - How media
manipulates 'real news' images that we take at face value, How NOT to take
such images ('smart bombs', etc) at face value.   A valuable classroom tool,
I would think.
Sorry I can't remember a specific title or address.  Best of luck.
