Traffic
Ride along as a CBP helicopter and Border Patrol riverboat assist agents on the ground as they pursue suspected drug mules running through the dense brush on an action-packed chase along the Rio Grande.


War Gangs
In Mission, Texas, Officer Heather Schrock is in a high-speed chase with a car reported to be carrying drugs.

War on the Streets
Go on patrol on the South Texas border, which is separated from Mexico only by the Rio Grande River.


Special Ops
Spend a night with the U.S. Border Patrol RIIP team—a team that adjusts their tactics and hours according to the current smuggling trends—as they track down a large group of suspected illegal immigrants hiding in the dense weeds on an embankment.


Cash and Corruption
Learn how money has become something of a drug—corrupting people's lives, luring them into believing in its broken promises. The show begins at the Brownsville Port of Entry where Customs and Border Protection officers find $610,000 of cartel money in the spare tire of a truck. The driver now faces jail time.


Rio Grande Rookies
In the border town Havana, new agent Rodney Garza plays a role in tracking a suspected smuggler, who is subsequently arrested.


The War Comes Home
Sometimes, the lure of easy money turns ordinary citizens into criminals. Along the border, drug trafficking and illegal immigrant smuggling don't affect just law enforcement. They touch everybody in the community.


24-hour Watch
The action on the border runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So it's critical that the men and women in law enforcement stay prepared, alert, and ready to go at the drop of a hat. Follow Border Patrol Agents and local law enforcement as they work around the clock to stop trafficking across the US border.


Animals on the Front Line
The horses—fast, maneuverable and strong—help apprehend groups of illegal immigrants galloping through terrain that is tough even for agents on ATV, let alone on foot. The dogs—obedient and tenacious—use their acute sense of smell to track suspects in the brush for miles, detect drugs and humans stashed in vehicles trying to cross the border, and stop drugs in the border towns from making their way further north. We follow agents and their animal partners as they work tirelessly for Border Patrol and border town police departments, proving that the men and women working to protect the border couldn't be as effective without the help of these animals in action.


Smuggler’s Stash
Laredo narcotics officers raid a residence in a school zone after a confidential informant buys crack cocaine direct from a drug dealer's house.

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.
