Discovery to launch Everest reality show from May 12

Everest: Beyond The Limit, a Discovery Channel show that claims to demonstrate the reality of April-May 2006 Mount Everest expedition, would start from May 12 announced Deepak Shourie, EVP and Managing Director of Discovery Networks India, in New Delhi today.

New Delhi, May 9 : 'Everest: Beyond The Limit,' a Discovery Channel show that claims to demonstrate the reality of April-May 2006 Mount Everest expedition, would start from May 12 announced Deepak Shourie, EVP and Managing Director of Discovery Networks India, in New Delhi today.

A 17-member production team had followed an expedition of 11 climbers with three professional mountain guides. The expedition was led by veteran mountaineer Russell Brice of New Zealand.

A result of cutting-edge filming techniques and cameras mounted on the helmets of climbers, the show will be telecast every Saturday at 9 p.m. on Discovery Channel.

Viewers can expect to experience real fears, glory, joy and loss unlike other reality shows, said Deepak Shourie.

"Every reality show has a different basis or should have a different basis. Some are related to music, some with TV and in some reality shows they show the life within as in the reality Big Brother show. This is a reality show of human adventure. This is different reality. But this is really real, not conspired," said Shourie.

After the successful making of 'Everest: Beyond The Limit,' at a height of 8850 meters, the technology used may further be exploited to learn more about the implications of global warming over Indian glaciers, said Major H P S Ahluwalia, the President of the Indian Mountaineering Federation.

"There are the effect of global warming, glaciers are melting, water is depleting. In 20-30 years, you will have problems with water. The Indian Mountaineering Foundation is now going for a scientific expedition. For the first time in 100 years, we are undertaking a study with the Chinese Academy of Science on the source of Brahamaputra and Satluj, and all these things should come out," said Ahluwalia.

Present on the occasion, Padam Shri Santosh Yadav, the first woman in the world to scale Everest twice, also shared her mountaineering experience with the audience.
