Science may be on the verge of producing a limitless supply of replacement parts by regenerating damaged or aging body parts grown from our own cells. Imagine the implications if we could custom make body parts genetically indistinguishable from our own. Could it eliminate the death sentence for profound birth defects, the need for prosthetics and any shortage of transplant organs?


National Geographic delves into the science of tissue engineering and tracks how scientists are beginning to harness the body's natural powers to grow skin, muscle, body parts and vital organs, even hearts

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R 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.

      I was so amazed by the research and development in regeneration of human cells and other body parts that I took my copy of this video to a reunion for the Vietnam era Marines, 3rd Bat., 5th in Kentucky on May 18th - 20th, 2012 and showed the whole thing to all of those who were interested. It was a big hit and I'm sure the VA hospitals will be getting some serious questions about the proceedures that might help those brave, wounded soldiers. I sure hope that they can find some help for their injuries. Thanks so much for airing this remarkable program on TV.

          (Got it? Rate it.)
          Category: DVDs/Science and Space/Biology and Evolution

          A tuft of tangled human hair is dug out of Greenland's permafrost. From these 4,000-year-old threads of evidence, scientists attempt the impossible: to be the first to reconstruct the identity of a Stone Age human being. From the scraps of DNA, an ancient face appears. But as they crack this genetic code, they find far more than they bargained for, and the discovery threatens to overturn our long-held concept of how humans populated the earth.

          Building Penguin Paradise tells the behind-the-scenes story of SeaWorld Orlando's daring attempt to build the most ambitious penguin attraction in the world. With only 18 months to finish and no room for error, these engineers embark on an audacious feat to replicate one of the harshest natural environments on the planet—Antarctica. The manmade habitat includes 45-foot-hight ice cliffs, freezing conditions, closer-than-ever animal encounters, and a palatial home for more than 200 penguins.

          The idea that a building’s walls will stand up seems as safe a bet as gravity's pull or the sun's rising. Most of us don’t worry much about whether our apartments, offices, supermarkets, or schools are going to collapse on us as we go about our daily routines. But should we? National Geographic takes a look at buildings around the world that despite having appeared structurally sound, some for years on end, came crashing down in a moment's notice. Dig deep into the histories of these buildings to discover why.

Now, after seven years off the factory line, Chevy is reintroducing the 2010 Camaro SS. National Geographic visits the 8.5-million-square-foot factory—one of the largest auto plants in the world—where the car is stamped from cold raw steel and assembled by high-tech, precise robots and nearly 5,800 employees, to create the car's specially-designed "unibody" construction.

          The dog is the ultimate human creation. With 400 breeds and counting, the dog is more varied in size and behavior than any other species on the planet. National Geographic looks at man's evolutionary manipulation of dogs' appearance, talents and temperament—and the accelerating efforts to create breeds to suit our needs (more than 80 percent of today's breeds did not exist 150 years ago). From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.

          For over 500 million years, the jellyfish has survived in our oceans. Today, global warming and pollution may be contributing to a population explosion, as billions of these sometimes venomous creatures increasingly swarm around our beaches and shorelines. And though they have no bones, blood or brain, some jellyfish are armed with a deadly arsenal unlike any other on the planet. National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.
