Most widely held works by National Geographic Television
30 years of National Geographic specials ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 1,945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A compilation of highlights and clips from past programs of the National Geographic televised documentaries, marking the 30-year anniversary of the Society's documentary production. From the very first National Geographic special in 1963, which followed a team of Americans as they ascended Mt. Everest, content ranges from wilderness to cultural exploration. Through these programs, National Geographic offered a broad variety of sights and perspectives which were previously unknown to the average viewing public. Still bearing historical value, examples include segments from the films that helped promote and popularize such issues as species and habitat protection and the works of Dr. Louis Leakey, Jacques Cousteau, Dian Fossey, and Jane Goodall

Stress portrait of a killer ( Visual )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A series of laboratory and field experiments demonstrated that stress, long thought to be an exclusively psychological phenomenon, is measurable and dangerous on a physical level. Stanford neurobiologist Dr. Robert Sapolsky studied baboons (Papio) on the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya, measuring their levels of stress hormones caused by social hierarchies. Sapolsky found that the hormones adrenaline and glucocorticoid increase in subordinate troop members, and dominant males had significantly lower blood pressure and heart rates. Also working with nonhuman primate models, Dr. Carol Shively of Wake Forest University examined the arteries of rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta). Corroborating Sapolsky's findings, Shively demonstrated that subordinate macaques have higher plaque levels in arteries, potentially increasing the risk for heart attack. These results were compared to a long-term human study, directed by Sir Michael Marmot of the University of London Medical School. Tracking the health of British Civil Servants, Marmot found that that humans lower in the workplace hierarchy had higher stress levels, and higher rates of sickness. Several researchers took these results a step further, focusing in on how stress affects mothers. Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Epel of the University of California-San Francisco found that chronic high stress in mothers shortened telomeres in chromosomes, potentially producing lifelong consequences. In all of these studies, researchers found that stress and its harmful effects can be reduced by social interaction, and that grooming, playing, and equal social rank in nonhuman primates produced positive health effects
