Animal Planet goes on a safari every Sunday

MUMBAI: Animal Planet has announced a new initiative Safari Sunday. This will air every Sunday from 7 am to 7 pm. The aim is to give viewers a chance to catch up one shows that they may have missed during the week. Animal Planet says that it is unique in offering the viewers a rare perspective of the animal world, an interplay of human-animal relationships that appeal to audiences across age groups.

A wide range of animals are tracked and environments explored in programs and are devised to offer viewers something new and unexpected each Sunday. By presenting this new package, the channel will not only be able to communicate the strong programming and diversity of the channel but will also draw higher viewership on Sundays.
Some of the shows that will air under this initiative are:

One Planet at 7 am - Countless species of wild animals - many unknown and uncategorized - are in danger of being driven to extinction by human development. Hundreds of thousands of acres of wilderness are being slashed and stamped out of existence for short-lived commercial purposes. But spreading this message above the crowd are Animal Planet's wildlife experts, using their voices to support the worthy cause of conserving wildlife and the wilderness they inhabit.

Around The World With Tippi at 9 am - Last year, Animal Planet told the story of eleven-year-old Tippi, a remarkable French girl who was brought up in Namibia and who, as a child developed a unique passion for wild animals. From a very early age, Tippi was able to bond with all kinds of wild animals including elephants, jaguars, monkeys, giraffes and even serpents. Animal Planet followed Tippi as she returned to Africa after two years away and met conservationists engaged in the preservation of local wildlife.

Now, Animal Planet catches up with Tippi and chronicles her adventures to other parts of the world to meet people who work closely with animals. Viewers join Tippi as she interacts with koalas and whale sharks in Australia, wolves in Canada and lions in Africa.

Most Extreme at 9:30 am - This series is a countdown of the top ten animals with powers that put people to shame. So who are the fastest, or strongest, or greediest animals? Which are the highest jumpers or the smartest? Each episode sets up the challenge and then finds the most extraordinary solutions in the animal kingdom. It shows why each of The Most Extreme animals really are the best of the best and puts human achievements into perspective.

TV With Teeth at 10:30 am - This show has intimate wildlife encounters - the ultimate experience of wildlife on the edge with a presenter that isn't afraid to go there.
