Discovery Channel Africa's Lineup For April 2019

Extinct Or Alive
From Wednesday 3 April at 21:00
What if extinct animals weren't really extinct? Forrest Gallante, a wildlife biologist, scours the globe using cutting edge technology on his mission to find species that the world has stopped looking for. With a deep passion for, and knowledge of, all animals - Forrest tangles with remote and sometimes dangerous environments, seeking out evidence and eyewitnesses to track and bring back to life creatures mistakenly labelled as extinct. From trekking the jungles of Taiwan to seek the Formosan clouded leopard, to braving the frozen tundra of Canada in search of the white wolf of Newfoundland, can Forrest prove these creatures are still alive?

Gold Rush: Parker's Trail
From Monday 8 April at 20:00
Having tackled the rugged and dangerous trails of the Klondike and the hostile jungles of Guyana, Parker Schnabel is ready to take his hunt for gold to the next level, in Papua New Guinea. He wants to reconnect with his grandfather John's history; having served in the air force there during WWII, he never wanted to discuss it when he was alive. And, as Parker learns about the gold rush history of the country, which attracted prospectors from the Klondike, he follows in the footsteps of one of the greatest explorers and prospectors of the 20th century, Mick Leahy, and learns the local mining techniques that make the present-day gold rush thrive in this stunning Pacific country.

Wheeler Dealers
From Saturday 20 April at 21:00
Experienced car dealer, Mike Brewer, is joined by multi- talented mechanic, Ant Anstead, in a monumental motoring mission: to find and restore iconic cars to later sell for a profit at their LA-based shop. In the series, Mike has the challenging job of finding vehicles that have money-making potential. He then hands them over to Ant, who tackles everything from bare metal re-sprays to gearbox swaps to bring them back to their former glory. From the sunny beaches of southern California to the coldest edges of Maine, the series scours the US from coast-to-coast for the best vehicles to buy, restore, test and sell for a tidy profit. What treasures will the guys find and flip on their epic adventures?

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?

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.

Unique Rides
From Saturday 2 March at 21:00
