This article is written as a part of the #BlogchatterA2Z Challenge for the Alphabet Z. The Theme for my Challenge is The Indian Television through the eyes of a 90s kid.
Watching animals on shows, were always fascinating. We barely had any animal shows on Doordarshan, once in a while, the shows would show some animals.
The first time that I had seen animals on Indian Television was on Discovery Channel. The channel that was exclusively dedicated to science and research. As a child I loved watching animals and especially fishes on the Television. It was a fascination, to see animals such as Kangaroo and Lions roams around naturally in their habitat. The beautiful birds and their beautiful colours captured always left a beautiful memory in my mind.
Subsequently, they also showed more engineering shows and other technical shows. There were other channels, that were also showing content related to Science and Technology. Such as National Geographic Channel, Animal Planet, Travel XP. They were not the usual mainstream channels but yes, they indeed provided a lot of knowledge and showed a lot of animals also on their channels.
The shows on these channels were unique and did not have any drama shows. They were straight forward experiments and facts. Yes, they did also telecast some documentaries, which were not on the mainstrem topics. They were investigative documentaries on topics such as World Wars, 9/11, Mumbai trains, Bomb Blast and other sensitive topics.
These channels were really investigative and sincere in their efforts. With now cute videos available on all the social media throughout the day. The desire to see any animal has almost reduced and gone to nil.
