Every element of control at Hays State Prison feeds one central purpose: to keep convicted and dangerous felons inside. But when it all fails, two inmates make their move for freedom. National Geographic follows the intense manhunt for two escaped convicts. Inmates go into lockdown, tactical squads assemble and K-9 units scour the riverside looking for clues. Meet one of the best manhunters in the state and watch the shakedown as inmates are interrogated, cells are ripped apart, and everything is searched.

National Geographic DVD Exclusives

For the first time ever, National Geographic presents its programming in DVD-R format. Available exclusively through this site, you can now own more of our award-winning specials and documentaries in a high-quality DVD format.


How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives 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 Exclusives titles are not close captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
