It's everyone's worst nightmare: kidnapped in a foreign country, held indefinitely in horrific conditions, at the mercy of political forces and the will of extremists. Now, on the 20th anniversary of his release, Explorer goes inside this shadow world with America's most iconic hostage—journalist Terry Anderson—who was held for nearly 7 years in Lebanon by radical Muslims. Anderson's fellow hostages, his family, and the man who risked everything to free him take us inside one of the most harrowing experiences imaginable.

Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.

About DVD-R

DVD-R Format

The DVD-R is a non-rewriteable digital format that is compatible with most commercial DVD players. The DVD-R format is created with MPEG2 Variable Bit Rate Compression with stereo sound.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.

NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
