Discovery Travel & Living to air two localised series in 06

BANGALORE: International lifestyle channel Discovery Travel & Living (DTL) is bringing out two series next year which will be localised in India. DTL is also making a five episode series on speed as an element slated to launch by the end of this month.

This was revealed to today on the sidelines of a media briefing to kick off a series on revolutionary music that left an indelible mark on the world --- Impact: Songs That Changed The World.

We are going to bring out two series next year which are going to be localised for India, made by Indian production houses. Its for the first time that well be seeing a product made and commissioned by Indian producers. Our idea is not just to showcase the world to India, but to showcase India to the world. These series-one food and one travel show- will be broadcast abroad as well as in India said DTL manager corporate communications Rajiv Bakshi.

Additionally, DTL is making a five-episode series on speed as an element, what it means to various people, speed as in used for car racing, super-sonic jets, speed as used by women and women coming into driving, into speed racing. The show is slated to launch by the end of this month, said Bakshi.

Speaking about Impact: Songs That Changed The World, bakshi said the series is celebrating the songs and not the singers per se and 12 songs have been selected. The weekly show kicked off on 12 November on DTL and has been slotted at 8:30 pm. A rerun will air every Saturday at 4:30 pm.

Most of the songs are in demand even today, and songs of singers such as Bob Marley sell more than they did when he was alive. His freedom anthem I Shot the Sheriff , Elvis Presleys Heartbreak Hotel or Aretha Franklins female empowerment mega-hit Respect, these songs represent several indisputable milestones in the history of popular music.

The series includes the following songs in the episodes:

(1) MAYBELLENE, Chuck Berry

(2) HEARTBREAK HOTEL, Elvis Presley


(4) RESPECT, Aretha Franklin

(5) I SHOT THE SHERIFF, Bob Marley

(6) I WANNA BE SEDATED, The Ramones

(7) STAYIN' ALIVE, The Bee Gees


(9) WALK THIS WAY, Run DMC & Aerosmith

(10) LIKE A VIRGIN, Madonna


(12) ANY MAN Of MINE, Shania Twain

People could say that we could have added more songs or some of the songs should not be there, we understand that and we appreciate that, said Bakshi while speaking with

Other interesting subjects that DTL plans to cover would be the effects of collisions between comets, a two episode series on the Titanic  the first episode would cover the building of the ship and the second would show the reasons for its sinking, based on new findings.

Another program that is likely to be telecast - Voyage to Tsunami would be telecast on 26 December , to coincide with the anniversary of the event that devastated a large portion of South East Asia and India.
