Discovery Channel Africa Explores Deep Within Alaskan Bush People And Taps Into The World's Largest Predators Alive - Discovery Channel Africa March 2019 Highlights

Alaskan Bush People
From Wednesday 13 March at 20:00
Deep in the Alaskan wilderness an incredible family was born and raised wild. Billy Brown, his wife Ami and their seven grown children - five boys and two girls - are so far removed from civilisation that they often go six to nine months of the year without seeing an outsider. They've developed their own accent and dialect, refer to themselves as a "wolf pack," and at night, all nine members of the family sleep together in a one-room cabin. Simply put, they are unlike any other family in America. There are new beginnings on the horizon after the first of the wolf pack, Noah, gets married; how is the family faring with a new member?

Tigerland
From Sunday 31 March at 20:00
One of largest predators on the planet, tigers are now sadly also one of the most endangered. In the last few decades, there has been a massive reduction in their numbers in the wild: from over 100,000 to less than 4000 today, and they are all at risk. In an attempt to reverse this decline, the countries where the last tigers roam have committed to an ambitious program of conservation that will hopefully see their numbers double by 2022 - the next Chinese year of the Tiger. In this compelling documentary, the conservationists and local populations of India and Bhutan detail their efforts and reveal the progress made in this difficult task. It's humans who put tigers on the brink of extinction, but perhaps it will also be humans who save them.

American Chopper (2018)
From Friday 29 March at 20:00
After their family-destroying argument over a decade ago, father and son custom motorcycle builders Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. have managed to rebuild a tentative relationship. They still run their separate shops, but occasionally they will come together to build something special. After working so hard to restore it, the Yankee bike they built together is ready to be unveiled - is it the first of many more? Or will the old anger rise again and put a halt to their joint engineering? Meanwhile, they are both still working on their own projects in their own shops. Paul Sr takes on a warrior-style motorcycle build for the founder of the Spartan Race extreme obstacle course competition, while Paul Jr. builds a wild west- inspired motorcycle for country music star Clay Walker's charity. Whether it's together or apart, either way the Teutuls continue to make some of the most exciting and best designed custom motorcycles in the world.
