Share the drama as daring adventurers from 97 countries attempt a seemingly impossible feat— to cut through Panama's hostile terrain and join the Atlantic and Pacific oceans! By succeeding, they halve the distance of coast-to-coast water travel— but formidable obstacles had to be conquered. See workers battle deadly swamps and risk their lives to blast apart enormous boulders blocking their way. Witness the massive fumigation campaign to wipe out the dreaded yellow fever and rampant malaria. And marvel as these determined men find an extraordinary way to move the ocean waters up and over impassable mountains! Rare archival footage and exciting recreations bring one of American's greatest untold stories of adventure to life in Panama Canal: The Brave Who Built the Impossible.

Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.

DVD Exclusives

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 closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
