The villagers of West Bengal's Jalapaiguri district dread the night. That’s when the lumbering giant elephants emerge from the forest to gorge on their crops of rice and corn. Elephants are gigantic and usually docile herbivores, but authorities say that wild elephant attacks are increasing. Why? National Geographic turns to Pittsburgh Zoo elephant manager Willie Theison, also known as "The Elephant Whisperer." After nearly 30 years working with elephants, Theison brings uncanny insight into their complex minds.

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.
