(from National Geographic Channel's press release, February 2019) On February 17, from 8-11 PM ET, National Geographic premieres its three-part series In Their Own Words from Emmy and Peabody- Award winner Tom Jennings ("Diana: In Her Own Words," "Challenger Disaster: Lost Tapes"). The series recounts the inside stories of three true headline-making stories that sent shockwaves across the world: the DEA Agents who brought down Pablo Escobar's Narco empire; Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme and the Deepwater Horizon oil-rig disaster. A groundbreaking documentary series with a unique format, In Their Own Words recounts incredible headline-making stories that are told moment by moment and in first person without using any narrators nor talking heads. Combining never-before-broadcast audio and video recordings with meticulously researched archival images and cinematic recreations, the series allows viewers to experience these incredible events as intimately as the people involved lived them.
