While Bernie Madoff serves time in jail for his massive Ponzi scheme, the U.S. Marshals Service auctions off the contents of his New York homes. Up on the auction block: a $500,000 diamond ring, rare Persian rugs, a 1917 Steinway piano, and thousands of other items seized by the U.S. government. The Marshals also auction off the beach house and cars of drug dealers and the fine art of a white-collar criminal.
National Geographic's Seized and Sold: The Madoff Auction is a behind-the-scenes look as the possessions of Bernie Madoff are auctioned off to the highest bidders.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R 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-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
