        Comments about The Gospel of Judas DVD:

        I feel that the National Geographic presentation of the Judas Gospel was an excellent source of historical information. It gave me a better understanding of the different sects which composed the early followers of Christ and made it more clear to me why this gospel was not included in the more orthodox writings of our Bible.

          If only this documentary had introduced the team, discussed the facts of discovery, and then provided the translated text. Really dislike the mocumentary fake drama. I wanted my time back.

          One of the greatest discoveries in Judeo-Christian archaeology, the Gospel of Judas did not head straight to a museum, or even to the library of a rich collector. The gospel's removal from its burial place was just the beginning of a bizarre cloak-and-dagger journey.

          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.

Dr. Spencer Wells, National Geographic explorer-in-residence and director of the National Geographic Genographic Project, goes on a mission to use advanced technology to decode the genetic identity of these unusually well-preserved mummies and open a unique window into the ancient migrations of mankind.

National Geographic uncovers the secrets of this ultimate predator, which has the most powerful jaws since T-rex, the most complex heart in the animal kingdom and a brain with unexpected intelligence. Examine the remarkable features of the croc—from its finely tuned pressure sensors used to detect prey to its lethal predation techniques; from its remarkable pulverizing stomach to its powerful immune system.

          Scientists have long debated one of the greatest mysteries of science. What caused the mass extinction of mammoths around 13,000 years ago? A look at science in the making, National Geographic follows a team of investigators as they assemble one theory for what might have happened to the mammoths, which reigned over the landscapes of North America for more than 1 million years. Could the clues point to the biggest cosmic impact humans have ever witnessed?

          Heroin is one of the most addictive drugs on earth. Stronger, purer, and easier to get than ever before, heroin is attracting a whole new breed of addict. Dangerously pure, the newest forms of heroin can be snorted or smoked, rather than injected, attracting millions of new mainstream users. National Geographic investigates how the war in Afghanistan has inadvertently unleashed a deluge of heroin, enticing users from Kabul to Europe to America's heartland.
