IMDb title is as per above, however, the DVD cover shows
-
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0969692

however, I think the title should read:
"National Geographic's Most Amazing Moments"

Mike: The main title should be the title that appears on screen in the show itself. See https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/title_formats:
We use the original title of a movie/show in its original language as it appears on screen (on the title card) in the opening credits. 
If a different title appears on the DVD box, or in promotional material, that should be listed as an alternate title, but it will not affect the main title used on IMDb.

If there is a discrepancy, please post here a screen capture from the opening credits of the show itself so we can see what the exact title is supposed to be and advise you on how to correct it, if you need advice about that.

I hope this helps.

Thanks. FWIW, I played the DVD and after the short introduction, with flashing 1-2 seconds clips, and just before starting the actual video, it shows this:

They sometimes rename these type of series and there are very similar series with very similar names. Just make 100% sure that it's the same series before submitting the AKA name ("DVD title" in this case, I guess).

Hi Mike62 -

Thanks for posting the screen grab and additional details.  Based on all the existing evidence that point toward the title being "National Geographic's Most Amazing Moments", the title update you requested has been approved and the change should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!

The IMDb listing referenced here has a 2007 date. Amazon has the DVD as coming out in 2005:

https://www.amazon.com/National-Geogr...

The 2007 listing is attributed to writer/producer
Paul Donvito. The DVD seems to be by Lorraine DiRienzo and Kim Woodard; perhaps Mike could confirm.

IMDb has another 'Amazing Moments' title listed as broadcast in 2003. This appears to be a better match for the DVD:

I would ask that IMDb undo the title change mentioned above.

Here is a YouTube video of National Geographic's Most Amazing Moments:

It is clearly a version of Amazing Moments (2003):

The 2007 title seems to be a different episode in the series Amazing Moments. "Most Daring Moments" is mentioned here:
