Premise: A classic series of films exploring nature and man in various cultural and historical contexts. Beginning in the 1960s (when they aired on CBS), the specials set a standard for vivid documentary filmmaking and the many `Nat'l Geo' prizes include Emmys for `Mysteries of the Mind' and `The Invisible World.' With the advent of cable, the specials evolved into two series before the creation of the National Geographic Channel in 2001.
