Right now National Geographic film crews are chasing adventure all over the globe. And they’re bound to catch it, again and again. Yet some of their most terrifying, triumphant tales will never be broadcast, and that’s the way it’s always been.

Until now.

National Geographic presents Voices: firsthand accounts of life on the TV trail. These aren’t your usual bloopers and blunders: We’re talking shark bites, exploding glaciers, mythical man-eaters—we’re talking wilderness pizza delivery. Add the latest audio and video technology and the action’s so close you can almost taste it.
