National Geographic Ultimate Explorer host Lisa Ling examines the consequences of China's two-decades-old ''one-child policy,'' designed to curb the country's exploding population. Due to cultural, social, and economic factors, traditional preference leans toward boys, so girls are often hidden, aborted, or abandoned. As a result, tens of thousands of girls end up in orphanages across China.


Today, more than one quarter of all babies adopted from abroad by American families come from China—and nearly all are girls. Ling joins some of these families as they travel to China to meet their new daughters for the first time. Along this emotional journey, she shares in the joy of these growing families and also witnesses firsthand China's gender gap, its roots, and its possible repercussions.


Join Ling as she explores the many complex issues surrounding China's attempt to slow its swelling tide of humanity.

      Comments about China's Lost Girls DVD:

      I used this in my 7th grade social studies classroom while we were studying a unit on the effects of over population. It was eye-opening for most of my students and the topic led to a wonderful classroom debate/discussion.

        Comments about China's Lost Girls DVD:

        Film illustrates the future problems in China with too many males wanting wives. Male children are preferred in one-child policy, so large percentage of girl babies are abandoned, succumb to "accidents", or aborted where possible. Future problems may include rapes, kidnapping foreign girls, or buying innocent girls for wives from other countries. Disturbing future for China.
