Mumbai : Discovery Channel and Animal Planet, India’s leading factual entertainment and No. 1 Wildlife channel respectively have acquired from Bomanbridge Media the epic award-winning documentary, ‘Terra’. The international award-winning documentary ‘Terra’ is all set to premiere on March 22at 20:00 hrs. Terra is curated by many wildlife filmmakers from around the world, all recognized for their talent in a specific field or region, behavior or living group and yet it is not a wildlife documentary or a militant investigative documentary. Terra is a thought-provoking documentary on the human species and its relationship with other living beings. A 90-minute documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand & Michael Pitiot, produced by Hope Production, Terra is a tribute to the human race, clearly showing that we are still capable of changing our future, just by looking differently at life.
“It has been our endeavor to bring the best of documentaries from across the world on Discovery and Animal Planet for our discerning audiences. The premiere of Terra follows acclaimed movies such as Above & Beyond: Nasa’s Journey To Tomorrow, First Man, Ghost Of The Mountains and 24/7 Wild which have been showcased on our network in the recent past”, said, Zulfia Waris, Vice President, Premium & Digital Networks, Discovery Communications India. “We will continue to up the ante as we work towards further increasing lead over competition.”
At its core, Terra looks at the natural history of mankind and our existence on Earth. It looks back on the unique journey of a species which, among millions of others, has evolved and emerged from the many phases of our planet’s growth. As it progresses, we witness a number of remarkable and individual characteristics of certain life-forms.
However, as the narration continues– subjectively embodying humanity itself – it will gradually divert from this natural history and begin to show how our species regards and represents the world. How did man become aware of the world around him, and how has this vision evolved over thousands of years to the current state of unconsciousness?
How do we now wish to interact with other species that live around us? The power of Terra resides in this very question. This documentary will show how our own image and representation of nature has always been decisive in human history, and how it can still change the course of events to come.
TERRA will air on 22nd March at 8 PM on Discovery, Discovery HD and Animal Planet and Animal Planet HD.
