Every year, millions travel America’s coast to coast artery: Interstate 80. And at the peak of I-80 lies a frightening, storm-driven stretch of terror called Donner Pass. Here, at over 7,000 feet, a band of tough operators who call themselves "Tow Dogs" see it as their mission to rescue stranded and wrecked motorists who lose their way. For these tow truck drivers, towing is their livelihood and they risk it all, gambling against the highway’s innumerable dangers, to put food on the table and provide for their loved ones.

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.
