Smoky Mountain Money

Four teams of mountain folk set out into the Great Smoky Mountains every September, searching the ridge-tops and "hollars" for wild American Ginseng. Ginseng is a federally protected endangered species so the harvesting of wild Ginseng is a heavily regulated, but profitable trade. Ginseng harvesting is a highly competitive and territorial, natural treasure hunt with many similarities to the commercial fishing industry. The teams come from long bloodlines of "Sengers" who have a great respect for the valuable plant and want to conserve as they forage, allowing Ginseng to continue thriving and be a source of income for their children and their children's children. They are all searching for a legendary "Monster 'Seng" - a huge man-shaped root that is rumored to fetch $10,000 on the Asian market.

Test Your Brain

Our brains are hardwired to make sense of what we see, hear, smell, touch and taste, and fill in missing pieces with whatever our expectations suggest should be there. This helps us understand sentences even when the letters are out of place. But while brains are amazing at processing the world around us, how much should you actually trust your own brain? Enough to multitask by chatting on your cell phone while taking a drive? Think spotting a dancing, life-size penguin sounds easy? Or how about riding a bike with your eyes closed, or picking the right person out of a line-up after witnessing a crime? Premiering on National Geographic Channel, Test Your Brain sizes up the human brain with an intricate series of interactive experiments to see how easily the brain can be fooled. Using some 12 watts of power, the brain is responsible for every fleeting thought, split-second decision and complex judgment. And it has a few tricks of its own - and some ways to cut corners - when piecing together how we see the world. This three-part special will leave viewers rethinking how much faith they are willing to put in everything from memory to multi-tasking.
