Hurricane Katrina may well be the most exhaustively chronicled natural disaster in history. Over the course of 72 hours, a cataclysmic storm became a catastrophic flood, which in turn became an apocalyptic human tragedy. All the while, amateur videographers, news crews, government agencies, tourists, storm chasers, and countless others were recording the sights and sounds of the unfolding chaos.

Weaving together more than a hundred of these sources, Witness: Katrina reconstructs Hurricane Katrina as it happened, entirely through the eyes of those who experienced it. From Biloxi to Bay St. Louis, from Slidell to the Superdome, this two-hour special captures the storm and its aftermath in all its epic human complexity—raw images of fear, grief, and anger, side by side with unforgettable moments of humor, grace, and joy. Timed to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the storm, Witness: Katrina is both a riveting documentary and an enduring document—the portrait of a defining moment in American history.

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-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
