National Geographic presents the ever-anticipated finale to the 2009 National Geographic Bee, moderated by Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek. Eric Yang, of Griffin Middle School in The Colony, Texas, triumphed at the annual competition during a tie-breaker round with this question: "Timis County shares its name with a tributary of the Danube and is located in the western part of which European country?" The answer, Romania, came with a U.S. $25,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society, and a trip to the Galapagos Islands with Jeopardy! host and Bee moderator Alex Trebek. Yang competed against 54 fourth- through eighth-grade contestants whittled down from nearly 5 million students from around the country.

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.
