Nearly 10 years before itself, some of the Discovery channel programs are dubbed in Tamil and telecasted in a Tamil TV channel (DD & Vijay). But that program did’t went well and later they stopped it. Few years back, again Discovery channel started telecasting few selected programs in Tamil language in a 2 hour slot. By mid of last year, Discovery channel started telecasting 24Hrs programs in Tamil. It is very nice to see thous nature, wild, science and engineering programs in Tamil. It is giving the great pleasure of understanding each and every minute details of the program.
Unfortunately in India, access to the Science and Technology is confine to English known tech people (<5% of the total population). And also due to the lack of the focussed effort by govt to bring-up/encourage science & technologies among students. I hope, this Tamil programs will give an opportunity to ordinary people to enjoy the science programs. And I really enjoy watching the Engineering the world, Time warp, Discovery select and Medical programs in Tamil. Thanks to Discovery channel.
