ANIMAL PLANET (article first published : 2003-09-9)

On September 10, DStv launches a brand new, world –class international channel called Animal Planet on Channel 67. This 24-hour-entertainment channel is packed with wildlife antics, providing a window to the world's most amazing animal moments. As one of Discovery Network Europe's nine brands distributed in the UK, Animal Planet launched internationally in 1996 and is available in 73 countries. It reaches more than 204 million viewers in Asia, Europe, the United Kingdom, North America and South America.

Through its partnerships with the world's best film producers, wildlife experts and personalities, Animal Planet allows viewers first-hand experiences of the raw powers of the natural world. You won't believe the adventures of personalities such as Steve Irwin "The Crocodile Hunter" or anthropologist Jeff Corwin as they interact with animals everywhere from the African Savannah to the jungles of Madagascar.

At Animal Planet, life is better with animals, a place in the TV universe where they are the stars. This can be explored on programmes such as Giant Monsters, City Slickers and Amazing Animal Videos which premiere in October.

The animal world is filled with drama and suspense as it tells the heart-breaking and heart-warming stories of Emergency Vets and Animal Doctor. Meet the people who have devoted their lives to caring for animals - nursing everything from a parrot to a Pekinese back to life.
