New Delhi, June 1, 2006: Throughout June a series of exciting and gripping shows will be premiered on Reality TV - a 24-hour entertainment channel that showcases programmes on real people with true stories. The interesting line-up for the month includes shows like The Great Shark Hunt, The Repossessors, Video Vigilantes, Cheaters Series 4, Daring Capers, Dr G Medical Examiner and Patient Files.

Reality TV has been captivating audiences worldwide through an eclectic mix of real life programmes that portray myriad experiences, feats, idiosyncrasies, aspirations and sentiments. Each programme captures events as they actually happened.

Announcing the new shows, Flecka Picardo, Marketing Manager of Reality TV - Asia, said, "It has been Reality TV's conscious attempt to provide meaningful, real life entertainment filled programmes to our Indian viewers. We are confident that these new programmes will further strengthen the position of the channel in India and will be appreciated by our viewers."

The Great Shark Hunt documents the struggle for regulation of the shark meat industry in order to maintain the shark population. The programme promises an extensive new footage of sharks in their natural habitat.

The Repossessors will take you to the front lines of the ongoing war between car lenders and delinquent debtors. Witness firsthand behind-the-scenes planning and successful execution of a wide variety of auto repossessions. Follow a variety of other repo men from different parts of the country as they prepare for and carry out their high stakes missions. Surveillance, hidden cameras, disguises, extensive planning, sheer instinct and sometimes partnering with Federal Marshals are all a part of the process of devising the perfect hit.

Video Vigilantes is a show that showcases curtain twitching into the 21st Century. The camcorder revolution has taken Neighbourhood Watch to new extreme levels. From shopping kerb crawlers and drug dealers to nabbing knicker thieves and randy rozzers, video vigilantism is rife and it's here to stay.

Reality TV Channel continues with some of its popular programmes like Cheaters Series 4, Daring Capers, Dr G Medical Examiner and Patient Files in June.

Cheaters, a popular part of the Reality TV schedule continues with new episodes in June, with presenter Joy Greco uncovering yet more infidelity. Cheaters follows Joey and his team of private investigators as they sneak their way into suspects' houses and plant surveillance cameras to keep a beady eye on what the mice get up to when the cat's away. Discretion and tact are never allowed to get in the way of a good catfight on this show, and Grand's clients are always shown the steamy evidence against their naughtier halves before being led by the crew to confront them.

Enticingly dangerous and devilishly clever: Daring Capers involves con artists to cat burglars, who tiptoe through the high-stakes world of the cunning crooks who mastermind the world's most daring capers. Daring Capers reveals a rogue's gallery of bank robbers, art thieves and debonair con artists who tried to steal their way to wealth through brilliant ploys and slick transactions.

One of America's most respected and charismatic forensic pathologists, Dr. Jan Garavaglia takes viewers on an unprecedented look behind-the scenes at the world of science, mystery and justice in Dr G: Medical Examiner. Each one-hour episode will include actual, in-depth examinations and autopsies, as well as the exploration and investigative filed work conducted by Dr. G and her team at the Orange-Osceola County Medical Examiner's office in Florida. With extraordinary 24/7 access to the medical investigators, the morgue staff, Dr. G reveals the intimate, inner workings of an extraordinary forensic pathology lab. This gripping medical series is currently number-one in prime time for Discovery Health. Audiences can't seem to get enough!

Patient Files is a dramatic documentary series that explores the world of an emerging generation of medical pioneers and their patients. The stories are set in North America's renowned Sunnybrook & Women's College Hospital -- one of the first hospitals in the world geared towards the research and treatment of women's health. Each episode will feature patients as they make critical journeys from illness and treatment to recovery - all at the hands of courageous and compassionate medical teams dedicated to women's medicine. It will portray the challenges patients and medical professionals face in receiving and delivering care differently. The series will draw audiences into the dramatic stories of women facing everything from cardiovascular disease to cervical cancer; from high-risk pregnancy to facial reconstruction and more.
