    National Geographic Videos present clips of the national world with the assurance of quality carried by all National Geographic productions. National Geographic was founded over 120 years ago as a society on a mission "to increase and diffuse geographic knowledge while promoting the conservation of the world's cultural, historical, and natural resources." Shortly after the initial group of academics and wealthy patrons began meeting to discuss world travel, The National Geographic Magazine saw its first publication, and the forward-thinking society embarked on a journey to provide high-quality ecological writing and photography to the public, expanding the common knowledge of the natural world-past, present, and possible future. This journey has since led to the creation of other magazines, such as National Geographic World, later renamed National Geographic Kids. The National Geographic Channel was created in 1997 to broadcast premium programs on TV, and National Geographic Films produces original feature films and documentaries. In keeping with the society's desire to create informative productions in all forms of popular media, National Geographic established a YouTube channel, presenting short videos of the natural world.moreless

Taking a break from their usual focus on urban culture, Americana seeks out modern day folk takes across the country.

In efforts to allow the stories to speak for themselves, each episode is presented with minimal narration, allowing the person being profiled the chance to let their story unfold in their own natural, unique way. By crafting the show in this manner, the human spirit of America's way of life is able to come forth unabashed, unadulterated and uncensored.moreless

    Toxic gives a first hand view of exactly how humans take care of the environment we all inhabit. Waste management issues in cities, the deforestation of forests, and the water pollution in the oceans are all caused by humans and are the same reasons for our dwindling environment. Toxic explores these notions as well as everything from the devastating effects that factories have on local ecosystems, to dwindling bee and fish populations, as well as more current events such as the BP oil spill crisis. Through its extensive environmental coverage, Toxic proves that "going green" requires much more effort than most companies and people are putting into it, and if we value the planet that we all share, we will give it the proper treatment it deserves. There is no miracle cure for the environmental issues that we have caused, but Toxic presents our past mistakes so that we can make better decisions in the future.moreless
