Discovery Channel creates robust 9 pm band with ‘Ultimate Discover’

Discovery Channel has announced the launch of new programme band called ‘Ultimate Discovery’, which promises some breathtaking, cutting-edge action adventure. The one-hour time band to be aired daily from October 2008 at 9-10 pm would comprise shows ranging from science, technology, history, adventure and exploration.

‘Ultimate Discovery’s programme line-up includes ‘When we left the Earth: The NASA Missions’, ‘Future Weapons’, ‘First Quest’, ‘Alaska Experiment’, ‘Man Vs Wild’, ‘Life in the Cold Blood’, ‘Discover India’ and ‘Next World’.

‘When we left the Earth: The NASA Missions’, which will be aired on Mondays at 9 pm, is a landmark six-part series detailing 50 years of NASA’s extraordinary space missions. In order to bring this ultimate experience to the viewers, Discovery Channel has transferred priceless, original mission footage from NASA’s secret film vaults to high definition for the first time.

In ‘Man Vs Wild’, adventurer Bear Grylls immerses himself in extreme locations around the world to demonstrate survival methods. Grylls demonstrates extreme survival skill from climbing steep, ice-covered mountains to braving flashfloods in this episode.

Through ‘The Story of India’, historian and narrator Michael Wood would embark on an exhilarating journey through India to uncover the sights and sounds, the dazzling achievements and dramatic history of the world’s oldest, richest civilization. ‘The Story of India’ will be on air every Wednesday at 9 pm.

‘Life in Cold Blood’ will be aired on Thursdays at 9 pm while ‘Fight Quest’ will be aired at 9 pm on Fridays.

Rahul Johri, Senior Vice-President and GM, India, Discover Networks Asia Pacific, said, “‘Ultimate Discovery’ is our firm commitment to the viewers to present biggest, boldest and most spectacular shows at their preferred hour everyday of the week. A comprehensive and continues programming band, it will satisfy viewers; curiosity to explore the fascinating world and its enchanting and ceaseless possibilities.”
