This National Geographic documentary is a retrospective look at National Geographic's participation in and recording of the great discoveries that took place during the Society's first 100 years. Through short vignettes containing commentary and footage from the vaults, Robert E. Peary's trek to the North Pole, Sir Edmund Hillary's reaching the summit of Mt. Everest, and Jane Goodall's groundbreaking primate research are warmly remembered.
