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.


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

Comments about Alaska Wing Men Seasons One and Two DVD-R Set:

Three disc DVD-R set.
Discs one and two have same skipping forward too soon issue.
Discs one and two have five episodes on them.
At the end of the episode the DVD player forwards to the next episode.
Each episode has seven chapters of various time durations.
The second chapter is 10 minutes long, but each episode is at least 45 minutes long.
At the end of the second chapter of the third episode the player skips forward to the fourth episode! This happened on my DVD player and my Blu Ray player, so it is not a hardware issue!

Like the original National Geographic explorers, for those who succeed there is no grand prize, just the well-fought pride of having conquered the grueling challenges that Mother Nature can throw at them. It's an epic competition series where the only prize is survival.
