MUMBAI: Brand new to Discovery Channel, ARABIA WITH LEVISON WOOD, will join the British explorer as he circumnavigates the Arabian Peninsula; a gruelling 5,000-mile journey that sees him travel through 13 different countries, immersing himself in the lives of locals in a bid to challenge the myths and stereotypes that plague this ancient land. Catch the 5-part series, every Thursday at 9:00 pm on Discovery Channel and Discovery HD World starting September 05.

Having spent several years as an Officer in the British Parachute Regiment serving in Afghanistan and working as a photographer and writer travelling to over 90 countries worldwide, Levison has seen the devastating realities of war first-hand.

This five-part series looks at each country through the eyes of its people, exploring the lives and experiences of a range of vastly differing characters: Syrian grandmothers, Iraqi snipers, swamp dwellers, smugglers, pirates, gunmen, shepherds, drug dealers, freedom fighters and nomads, with each episode reflecting the changing environments and unique communities along the route.

“The show is part of Discovery India’s strategy to focus on explorers and adventurers who are changing the world, “, said, Sai Abishek, Head of Content, Discovery. “The Indian public has appreciated Levison’s journeys including ‘Walking the Himalayas’, ‘Walking the Nile’, ‘Walking the Americas’, ‘From Russia to Iran’ et al.”

ARABIA WITH LEVISON WOOD sees Levison begin his journey on the edge of Arabia in Kurdistan and culminates in Lebanon where he travels from Hezbollah’s heartland to the snowy highlands forging his way through a raging blizzard that almost takes the life of his mountain guide.

It’s through this ambitious expedition that Levison will look beyond the preconceptions people hold, uncovering the stories of both sorrow and hope amid complex politics and the constant threat of violence and war, to better understand this complicated and diverse land.

ARABIA WITH LEVISON WOOD will premiere in India on Discovery Channel and Discovery HD World, 9pm, Thursday, 5th September 2019.
