Discovery Channel takes viewers ‘Into Alaska’ with Jeff Corwin

The mention of Alaska conjures up images of pristine mountains, unlimited wilderness and grizzly bears having a free run of the Kodiak Islands. Discovery Channel is premiering an eight-part series called ‘Into Alaska’ to explore this wild land. The weekly show, which goes on air from February 19 at 8 pm, would be presented by Emmy Award winning anthropologist and wildlife conservationist Jeff Corwin.

Rajiv Bakshi, Associate Director-Marketing and Communications, Discovery Networks India, said, “We have provided exceptional narrative, stunning imagery and cutting-edge special effects to capture Alaska. It is an extraordinary show, which gives information on the wildlife and challenges of Alaska, and I can’t think of better a host than Jeff Corwin.”

Said Corwin, “Alaska is so special, so rare. Despite its postcard appearance, there’s something else that’s even better, and that’s what you hear, which is nothing but the wildlife – no cars, no trains, no planes, just pristine wilderness. When I travel by kayak, the feeling I get is one of absolute serenity and solitude made all the more magical kissed by a little Alaskan summer sun.”

Corwin will help the audience to explore Alaska while delivering the ultimate informational guide, which is home to America’s highest mountain, fascinating animals, spectacular lodges, seemingly endless options for outdoor activities and centuries of rich history. Alaska is also known for its great wilderness and the ferocious animals that dwell in this wilderness.

The episodes include Denali National Park, the Kenai Peninsula, Katmai National Park, Kodiak Islands and Lake Louise.
