National Geographic Society (USA: 2012) approximately 40 min.

These intrepid men and women returned not only with tales and artifacts, but images—moving and still—of hidden worlds. This rare vintage footage covers a wide range of NGS-sponsored expeditions from the North and South Pole along with glimpse of genteel life among in Spanish vineyards.
