MegaStructures takes an eye-popping look at some of the greatest structures and machines ever created. Get inside these superstructures, and uncover the cogs, gears, bells, and whistles that make them work. Go behind-the-scenes with National Geographic, and learn about all the stops and starts that went into creating these engineering triumphs and the seemingly simple construction materials that take them from idea to incredible. Includes two episodes: Mega Plane and Inside a Super Casino.

Egyptian Secrets of the Afterlife
To the ancient Egyptians, life after death was a high-stakes underworld journey fraught with terrifying obstacles: fiery lakes of death, battles with bona fide monsters, and ultimately eternal death or resurrection with the sun. It's a journey each Egyptian believed was real, and for the pharaoh the stakes were even higher—the entire cosmos depended on the king's successful journey and resurrection. Now, new excavations are revealing what the Egyptians believed they'd encounter on their afterlife journey. Today Dr. Zahi Hawass is excavating a mysterious tunnel at the very bottom of Seti's tomb, far below the surface of the earth. This is a true Indiana Jones-style quest in which Dr. Hawass will put his own life in jeopardy for the sake of discovery.

Climbing Redwood Giants
They are giants—stretching more than 300 feet above the ground, with hidden gardens and mysterious predators thriving within their canopy. National Geographic reveals the unexplored environment of redwoods using high-tech aerial laser surveys and breathtaking imagery. Obsessive redwood climber Steve Sillett of Humboldt State University investigates their monster crowns, tallying biological material and discovering new record-breaking trees, while escaping falling branches and crashing trees in the process. Down below, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Mike Fay charts the redwood range. It is an epic yearlong exploration to size up the past and future of this primeval tree threatened in 21st century California.

Planet Carnivore - Sharks and Lions
Witness dramatic stories of survival among the biggest, most successful meat-eating predators in the world and how their biological imperative drives, shapes and decides the fate of their world and ours. New science tells us how these top predators hold entire ecosystems together, maintaining the fragile balance of every living thing just by their dominance. Sharks and lions—what would our world be without them? Go close-up to the jaws and claws of two of the most awesome carnivores to find the answer. Narrated by actor Alec Baldwin.

Through the Lens
The thrill of adventure, it's a mix of adrenaline, danger, excitement, and action. But trying to capture that thrill in an eye-catching image is never easy, especially when the photographer braves infernos, dangles from cliffs or skydives from 13,000 feet above the ground. Learn the stories behind the lens where split-second timing can spell the difference between exhilarating success and devastating failure.

Fantastic series! We loved these!

By Helene Quinn

from Balto, MD USA

Verified Buyer

These are great! Each one has its forte. The photography is excellent, the narration is compelling & the length of the films are JUST enough to really enjoy. Some felt like you were RIGHT THERE! Great topics & a nice get-away from silly movies or useless information the TV often gives us. Documnetaries like these are fun and educational... even for my dear hubby, who is usually bored with them! He loved it!

thanks, Nat Geo!
