National Geographic cameras capture tense games of cat and mouse, as DEA agents track, apprehend and capture smugglers on land and sea. Inside Cocaine Wars includes two programs: Airport Sting and Drug Speedboats.
Airport Sting The American Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents in Colombia investigate an elusive smuggling ring of American servicemen, capturing a drug mule posing as a mountain climber with liquid cocaine impregnated into his climbing rope. Later, a Colombian man gets busted with pellets of cocaine in his stomach, and a father attempts to smuggle drugs out of Colombia with his 3-year-old daughter in tow.
Drug Speedboats To stop the flow of cocaine before it hits American shores, an elite team of DEA agents patrol the central Caribbean's waters hunting go-fasts, speedboats carrying exorbitant loads of cocaine that can hit 100 mph. After wiretaps reveal an impending drop, agents prepare to intercept a Venezuelan go-fast off the Dominican Republic shoreline. In the black of night, NGC cameras capture a tense game of cat and mouse as agents track and capture the smugglers and more than one ton of cocaine.

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.
