With the 2008 Summer Olympics only months away, get an early look at the Beijing Olympic Stadium. Seating 91,000 people and daringly designed with 42,000 tons of steel woven in the shape of a bird's nest, it's one of the most ambitious construction projects ever attempted. Experience the vivid detail and goliath sense of scale of what will likely be the pride of Beijing. This special examines the unique features of the "bird's nest" stadium, following its design, engineering, and construction up until its completion.

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.
