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.

As seen on PBS and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Jared Diamond, who traveled the globe for more than 30 years trying to answer one of the big questions in world history: Why is the world so unequal? The answers he found—that the societies that developed food production techniques first were also the first to develop writing, technology, and government—were simple, yet extraordinary. Our DVD weaves together anthropology and science with epic historical reenactments that bring his fascinating theories to life.

In a small, remote mountain top primary school in the Kenyan bush, hundreds of children are jostling for a chance for the free education newly promised by the Kenyan government. One new applicant causes astonishment when he knocks on the door of the school. He is Maruge (Oliver Litondo), an old Mau Mau veteran in his eighties, who is desperate to learn to read at this late stage of his life. He fought for the liberation of his country and now feels he must have the chance of an education so long denied—even if it means sitting in a classroom alongside six-year-olds.

Where should the lines be drawn in this lucrative industry?
