NEW DELHI: Discovery Channel is all set to take viewers into the fourth dimension with its Emmy award-winning series Atlas.

Atlas is the most ambitious high-definition television project ever to go into production, Discovery said. The special event series combined captivating photography and cutting-edge special effects to paint a record of civilizations and geographies.

Premiering on 1 September every Wednesday at 9 pm, Discovery Channel will take viewers on a breathtaking journey to the Great Rift Valley, the tropical islands of Hawaii, and the Mediterranean in Atlas 4D.

Using state of the art computer graphics, Atlas 4D features landscapes that have evolved over millions of years to tell the story of the Great Rift Valley, Hawaii and the Mediterranean.

Uncovering connections between geology, natural history and indigenous peoples, Atlas 4D reveals how the formation of the Rift Valley forced a crucial evolutionary step for humankind, how an ancient ice age provided Polynesian settlers in Hawaii with a breakthrough technology, and how the spread of Islam sparked the Italian Renaissance in the Mediterranean.

Commenting on the series, Discovery Asia-Pacific senior vice president & general manager Rahul Johri said, ?Atlas 4D is going to amaze viewers as they see the ‘how‘ and ‘why‘ of some of the globe‘s most riveting locales. Showcasing the natural beauty of the world with groundbreaking technology, the three-part series combines spectacular photography and cutting-edge special effects to portray a stunning feature of history, civilizations, and geographies of these destinations.?
