THE HISTORY CHANNEL (article first published : 2003-11-30)

On December 1, DStv subscribers can take a journey back in time with the launch of a world-class international channel, The History Channel®. As a global documentary channel, The History Channel® is devoted exclusively to historical programming, featuring informative and entertaining series, specials and documentaries. The channel allows its audience to experience history personally and to connect their own lives to the great lives and events of the past.

Channel 68 on DStv will be the home of The History Channel®, which will broadcast daily from 18h00 till midnight. For subscriber benefit, the six-hour channel will be repeated twice the following day at 06h00 and 12h00.

The History Channel® catalogue features a variety of topics from Ancient to Contemporary History, Military History and Technology & Transport. Modern Marvels, History's Mysteries and Ancient Mysteries are other strong themes that will further enhance programming. Included in the channel's schedule is a one hour Biography® strand, featuring profiles of bygone as well as contemporary legends. Joseph Stalin, Patti Labelle, Greta Garbo as well as Jon Bon Jovi are just a few offerings to look forward to in December.

Closer to home, DStv subscribers will identify with special programmes such as Gold! which was filmed on-location all over the world: the Vatican, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, the Cayman Islands, Egypt, Turkey, South Africa, Australia, India, Peru and the United States. The programme premieres in December and examines gold mines around the world, the international story of greed, gold's power on world economies and how the mineral has been used culturally and politically throughout the ages.
