If you have ever wondered what it's like to live on the vast Serengeti plains, or experience the intense beauty of a Sahara night, AFRICA will take you there. A joint venture between Thirteen/WNET New York's NATURE and National Geographic Television, AFRICA is an eight-part series, shot in widescreen, super 16mm format, that takes viewers on a kaleidoscopic adventure across Africa's major regions and into the homes of the people who live there.
Major real-life air disasters are depicted in this TV series. Each episode features a detailed dramatized reconstruction of the incident based on cockpit voice recorders and air traffic control transcripts, as well as eyewitnesses recounts and interviews with aviation experts. Sometimes, interviews with investigators who dealt with the disaster or even actual footage are featured.
In Canada, where the series originated, the show is called 'Mayday'. In the US it is 'Air Emergency'. Everywhere else it is called 'Air Crash Investigation'.
They are the first line of defense on the last frontier, the roughly 400 state troopers who patrol the rugged and unforgiving terrain of America’s largest state — Alaska.

Responding by land, air and sea — with backup sometimes days away — they face danger to protect the people and wildlife of Alaska.
Alaska depends on airplanes and helicopters. This 3-part series takes a look at the men and women who fly through this dangerous territory where a disproportionate number of plane crashes occur due to weather, the topography and landing strips – or lack thereof.

For Amazing Planet, National Geographic has teamed up with NASA and the US Geological Survey to create a 4-D planet Earth - an eye-popping CGI time machine that makes it possible to see in seconds what took eons to create. Witness the bumper-car antics of continents; ice ages pulsing out of the poles and back again; the Himalayas surging upwards; the march of sand dunes swallowing and then uncovering African villages.
