In 2001, National Geographic set out to document two human/ape hybrids living in California. The struggles that the two men had to overcome were great, but not impossible. In this exclusive trailer, National Geographic stuns the world by proving that "Humanzees" are not only real, but fun, cool people who want the respect that they deserve. The two men featured in the Documentary still live in California, but hidden away from the public for security reasons. Special Thanks to Maureen Riley.

*******www.beet.tv/2008/10/national-geogra.html User-generated content plays a central role in National Geographic's dynamic multimedia platform, Senior VP for online content development Rob Covey told me at the Omma Global conference last month. Users can now share their own videos on the user-generated video hub Everyday Explorers, built with online community builder KickApps and recently launched in beta. Covey gave a presentation at the conference about how National Geographic is successfully adapting to the digital world; initiatives like the site's "My Shot, Your Shot" photo-sharing community and World Music Hub have helped drive online traffic. Covey says they are planning to build interesting applications with the user-generated content to create a more interactive experience. --Kelsey Blodget, Associate Producer

*******www.1000pictures.tv/ MARCO POLO: THE CHINA MYSTERY REVEALED Did Marco Polo Really Make the Journey to China? Was he the Worlds Greatest Overland Explorer or the Biggest Liar? Perhaps no land journey in human history is more famous than Marco Polos legendary 24-year trek across Asia. But was it all just a big lie? As described in his 1299 book, The Description of the World, the peripatetic Venetian merchant encountered such wonders as the singing sand dunes of Dunhuang, China, mountains of salt in present-day Afghanistan, and the glories of the Mongol court of Kublai Khan. Generations of Europeans were spellbound by Polos account, yet in recent years some scholars have questioned its authenticity. For an extensive three part series in National Geographic, veteran photographer Michael Yamashita put the famed Venetians reputation to the ultimate test using Polos own book as his travel guide for a journey in the celebrated explorers footsteps. Yamashita retraced Polos route across ten countries, from Venice through restricted areas in Iraq and war zones in Afghanistan, over the old Silk Road into China and back again by way of Southeast Asia and India. Along the way he encountered many landmarks and peoples documented in Polos book, deepening his conviction that Polos account is indeed authentic. Yamashita shares dazzling images and fascinating stories from his own journey to the East, while making a strong, personal case for the veracity of the reports of his 13th-century predecessor. Yamashitas search for Marco Polo led to this series of documentary films that first aired on the National Geographic Channel Asia. Three 30-minute episodes, shot on 16 mm film. Initial airing: March 2004, National Geographic Channel Asia. Asian TV Awards: Best Cinematography, Best Original Music Score
