Rock Center

NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel journeys to North Korea in this latest episode of Hidden Planet. Engel witnesses a military parade, one of the state events that North Korea has come to be known for, but he also journeys through parts of the country rarely seen by American eyes. Engel goes shopping in a North Korean store, visits computer science students who have never heard of Facebook and takes a train ride through parts of the country that reveal barren fields.

Hidden Planet is an iPad and web exclusive series reported by Richard Engel for NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams. Each month Engel provides a behind-the-scenes look at a different global destination, as experienced during his worldwide travels for NBC News.
