National Geographic Ultimate Explorer host Lisa Ling examines the consequences of China's two-decades-old ''one-child policy,'' designed to curb the country's exploding population. Due to cultural, social, and economic factors, traditional preference leans toward boys, so girls are often hidden, aborted, or abandoned. As a result, tens of thousands of girls end up in orphanages across China.


Today, more than one quarter of all babies adopted from abroad by American families come from China—and nearly all are girls. Ling joins some of these families as they travel to China to meet their new daughters for the first time. Along this emotional journey, she shares in the joy of these growing families and also witnesses firsthand China's gender gap, its roots, and its possible repercussions.


Join Ling as she explores the many complex issues surrounding China's attempt to slow its swelling tide of humanity.

      I used this in my 7th grade social studies classroom while we were studying a unit on the effects of over population. It was eye-opening for most of my students and the topic led to a wonderful classroom debate/discussion.

        Comments about China's Lost Girls DVD:

        Film illustrates the future problems in China with too many males wanting wives. Male children are preferred in one-child policy, so large percentage of girl babies are abandoned, succumb to "accidents", or aborted where possible. Future problems may include rapes, kidnapping foreign girls, or buying innocent girls for wives from other countries. Disturbing future for China.

          During excavation for the deepest submerged tunnel in the world, engineers in Istanbul uncovered a hidden past: a preserved ancient harbor. It is the biggest maritime discovery in history, and to date, more than 30 shipwrecks from the Byzantine era have been recovered. With new findings every day—including stone foundations from a settlement dating back 8,000 years—construction of the tunnel has come to a halt, and the delay is costing the engineers millions. Now, National Geographic goes on site to one of the largest archaeological excavations ever undertaken and grants viewers behind-the-scenes access to this heated battle between modernizers and historians.

          Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/Ancient Civilizations

          Herod the Great, king of the Holy Land during the time of Christ, is best known for the Massacre of the Innocents—the Book of Matthew's account of the slaughter of Bethlehem's male infants. But Herod's bloody reputation has always hidden another side of one of the Bible's greatest villains. He was an architectural mastermind of breathtaking proportions. Herod built more and larger monuments than virtually anyone in ancient times, and perhaps in all time.


          Now, Israeli archaeologist Ehud Netzer claims to have found Herod's grandest creation of all—his burial tomb. At his self-named palace-fortress Herodium, Herod's Lost Tomb explores Netzer's decades-long search for the King of the Jews' fabulously carved mausoleum and coffin. With in-depth examinations of classic Herodian sites such as Masada, Caesarea, and Jerusalem's Second Temple, National Geographic probes deep into the architectural brilliance of one of history's most despised men.
