Discovery Channel will feature a special series titled 'Planet Earth', which will explore every corner of the planet in a way never done before


Channel will feature an 11-part series, 'Planet Earth', starting February 1, 2007. The programme will be aired every Thursday at 8pm and will premiere first in India and then in the United States. Repeats will be telecast on Saturdays at 6pm and Sundays at 2pm.

The series hopes to portray the planet in a hitherto unexplored way by featuring landscapes from across the globe, never seen before creatures, hidden caves and the mightiest mountains in its various episodes.

The programme is the result of 40 cameramen at work across 200 locations through five years and has been produced on a budget of Rs 100 crore.

The highlight of the show is the length and breadth of the globe it traverses. It boasts of covering tropical rainforests, poisonous caves across continents, wildlife, the remotest habitats, the interiors of volcanoes and the core of the earth.

Deepak Shourie, EV-P and managing director, Discovery Networks India, says, "This series will take viewers through a journey of unimaginable scale that will be unforgettable."
