    Information on Expedition Everest TV Specials

    The Discovery Network's Expedition Everest Website at now has the information on the shows tied into Expedition Everest.

    There are going to be three different shows. One of them is on the Search for the Yeti, but I am including it in the listings anyway.
    On Sunday April 09, 2006 from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM on the Travel Channel is

    Expedition Everest: Journey to Sacred Lands
    Expedition Everest follows an amazing quest for detail as Joe Rohde, Creative Executive for Walt Disney Imagineering, travels through Nepal to study every nuance of its culture, architecture and customs. Providing unprecedented coverage of this artist's journey to reveal the secrets of a complex and unique region, Expedition Everest covers the miles traveled to research and replicate so accurately the culture, architecture and customs of Nepal for Disney newest attraction.

    This show will repeat

    (That is the only repeat they have posted presently. I am sure it will be on more than that)

    On Monday April 10, 2006 from 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM on the Science Channel (see below for Discovery Channel showtimes) is

    Building a Thrill Ride: Expedition Everest
    Get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the technology, engineering and creativity harnessed to build one of the most elaborate thrill rides in theme park history — "Expedition Everest" at Disney's Animal Kingdom. See the transformation of a five-acre sleepy cow pasture into a 200-foot mountain and Nepalese village. This special reveals the step-by-step creative process behind the construction, culminating in the unveiling of the replica of one of the most mystical and majestic mountains in the world. Viewers will also meet the revered protector of the mountain, the Yeti, brought to life through awe-inspiring technology and painstaking detail, down to the individual strands of hair in the creature's pelt.

    On Saturday April 15, 2006 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Animal Planet is

    Corwin's Quest: Realm of the Yeti
    (TVKirby note - I am including this show in the listings as Animal Planet is one of the Discovery Networks and the show is linked
    off of the Expedition Everest page at . In all Likelihood they will somehow link this show to the Expedition Everest attraction's Yeti.) Jeff Corwin joins an elite team of top scientists on an adventurous mission to search out new animal species in one of the most mysterious regions on earth. This region of Nepal is a remote and unexplored area of the Himalayas, in the shadow of the highest mountains in the world. Under Mount Everest's looming presence, Jeff encounters the area's diverse and exotic wildlife much of which has never been captured on film. Jeff also meets the locals, hears their stories and sees evidence of the creature called “the protector of the mountains.” Real or imagined, the Yeti has a profound conservation influence where huge swathes of land are left untouched because the locals believe the Yeti resides in their depths.

    This show will repeat
    From Saturday April 15, 2006 at 11:00 PM to Sunday April 16, 2006 at 01:00 AM
