NDTV 24X7 to air special documentaries on environment

MUMBAI: NDTV 24X7 has lined up three environment based documentaries to air in the wake of World Environment Day on 5 June.

Under its Documentary 24X7, the English news channel claims to take viewers through the stretches across the south of our planet, assist them to witness the most unique animals and help to observe the plight of the endangered sharks.

On 31 May at 1 pm, the channel will air Shores of Silence, a film by Mike Pandey. It documents the Indian coast that house the largest concentration of whale sharks in the world. An alarmingly high number (independent studies put it at 600) is slaughtered every year. The film brings to light the massacre of the fish. The Green Oscar-winning film galvanised global attention to the largest and the gentlest fish in the ocean - the whale sharks.

At 1.25 pm, the channel will air Timeless Traveller-The Horseshoe Crab, a film by Gautam Pandey. It shows the endangered species Horseshoe Crab, which is one of the most unique animals. It emerged from the oceans 562 million years ago and has survived unchanged. If the situation is not carefully managed, the risk of adversely affecting the horseshoe crab population becomes a certainty.

On 7 June at 1 pm, NDTV 24X7 will air Antartica: The White desert by Damon Foster. It takes viewers through white wilderness stretched across the south of our planet; a giant natural laboratory that has long occupied the human psyche. Antarctica is a continent of remote natural wonder. For brief moments each year, this hauntingly beautiful landscape opens up, beckoning scientists and explorers from around the world to investigate its frozen secrets.

The films take viewers on a visual adventure into this mysterious continent, introducing them to a team of scientists, researchers and explorers who have braved the inhospitable continent in the quest to learn its secrets.
