Armed with little more than a camera, a microphone, and a pressing determination to gain a better understanding of life in and around Pyongyang, Ling poses as a medical coordinator in order to document the tireless efforts of humanitarians during her closely-guarded journey. This is the North Korea that few Americans will ever see, a vast and beautiful landscape ruled by one of the most controversial dictatorships in modern history.

    Wonderful

    An amazing documentary in so many ways. Definitely worth buying and watching - Inside North Korea is a fascinating look at the way North Koreans take their form of government. Very enlightening.

    Definetely Better Than Earlier National Geographic Programs!

    This DVD is one of Lisa Ling's best National Geographic Explorer DVDs. Lisa Ling just makes the program so lively. Earlier National Geographic programs such as Save The Panda and Secrets of the Wild Panda from the 1980s were quite good too,but they were nothing like National Geographic Explorer. The programs were narrated and they were really plain compared to National Geographic Explorer. I hope to keep adding more National Geographic Explorer DVDs to my collection. Thank you Lisa Ling!
