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 Escobars Narco empire; Bernie Madoffs 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.

Theres no better way to tell a story than to hear it from the people who lived it, and with In Their Own Words, we hear directly from those involved, getting a detailed, moment-by-moment account of what actually happened, says executive producer Tom Jennings. In Narco Wars, DEA Agents Steve Murphy and Javier Pena candidly speak about how they brought down the worlds most notorious drug kingpin. The surviving crew members of the tragic Deepwater Horizon oil-rig disaster vividly recount what is was like to be at the center of a fiery hell on Earth, and the infamous Wall Street pariah Bernie Madoff openly discusses how he pulled off the financial crime of the century.

Each hour of the three-night event features a captivating true story thats told with a completely fresh perspective:
