Imagine a flu that kills 70 percent of those it infects and has the potential to become as contagious as the common cold. Would a wide spread panic break out? Would martial law have to be imposed? Would the global economy come to a halt? These are only a few of the concerns surrounding a deadly strain of avian influenza that first made news in Asia in 1997. Join National Geographic as we follow a swat team of virus hunters and the world's leading scientists in a race to understand the latest threat and prevent it from spreading.

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.
