Discovery lines up special shows on World Environment Day

Will be aired from 12 pm to 5 pm on Discovery Plus & Discovery Channel on 5 June.

Mumbai: A special lineup of shows will be unveiled from 12 pm to 5 pm on Discovery Plus and Discovery Channel for Indian audiences on 5 June to mark World Environment Day. The popular host of Jeremy Wade’s Mighty Rivers, will also provide a special feature on the increasing pollution levels of the Amazon, Ganges, Yangtze, Mississippi, Danube, and the Zambezi river networks that will be an added attraction on the channels.

Wild Karnataka

Karnataka is the home to some of the richest wild places on the planet and boasts of rich biodiversity, most of it still unknown to the public. The film also appreciates the efforts of people, the government, and the forest department who are committed to saving nature for future generations to marvel at.

The movie spotlights the state government’s initiative called The Tiger Foundation of Karnataka Forest Department (TFKFD), as a crusade to save the majestic tigers and elephants found more abundantly here than anywhere else in India. The money raised through the show was donated to the TFKFD. The documentary sends a message of hope, not just across India but the whole world. Leading film stars lent their voice over for the narrative in the documentary in different languages. Sir David Attenborough narrates the English segment; Rajkumar Rao does the voice-over in Hindi, Prakash Raj in Telugu and Tamil, and Rishab Shetty in Kannada.

The Story of Plastics

The documentary focuses on the timeline of the growing plastic pollution crisis. It exposes the ugly truth behind plastic pollution and the fallaciously recommended solution of plastic recycling. It also highlights the excessive environmental damage that it causes along with the human rights abuse that occurs in the industry throughout the production of plastic products.

India 2050

This documentary gives us a glimpse into the potential damage climatic change can bring upon us in the future if we do not take responsible steps to safeguard our environment today. The documentary feature articulates the potential danger of uncontrolled environmental degradation and serves as a much-needed wake-up call. This world environment day, India 2050 will urge every Indian to take the first step to become a responsible citizen.

Jeremy Wade's Mighty River Monsters

In this new, six-part series, Jeremy sets out to examine and explore some of the planet’s largest waterways with the same immersive style that made Jeremy Wade’s Mighty River Monsters a global success. He’ll be taking the pulse of the Amazon, the Ganges, the Yangtze, the Mississippi, the Danube, and the Zambezi to understand how exploitation and pollution contribute to the ruin of rivers that were once the lifeblood of communities and home to majestic freshwater giants.

Great Global Clean-up

The show focuses on people from across the world who got together in clean-up drives in parks and beaches at an event called the “Great Global Clean-up”. It features Zac Efron and Zach King with local superstars and people from across the world who lent a helping hand to clean as much waste as possible, setting a target to collect a hundred billion pieces of trash from public places across the world.
