National Geographic explores the unexpected genetic truths behind 'Spore,' the groundbreaking simulation game. In the game, players can design a new life form, such as a one-eyed web-footed creature with a snout, and then control their species' evolution. But how much real-world science is behind the game? Join video game pioneer Will Wright and leading scientists as they explore the genetic information we share with all animals. From prehistoric fish with wrists to 8-ton elephants with trunks, get powerful new insight into the origin of species and how our prized parts came to be. Then see how evolutionary creature-making is translated into a brave new world of gaming.

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.
