    Nat Geo Wild gets launch date

    National Geographic is to launch new channel Nat Geo Wild on March 29.

    The channel, launching alongside Nat Geo Wild HD, will use the latest technology to "immerse" viewers in the lives of wild animals, according to Nat Geo.

    The launch slate includes Rebel Monkeys, a series about a gang of feisty monkeys living in the Galta Temple in Jaipur, India; and Expedition Wild With Casey Anderson, a series documenting the naturalist's relationship with a 900lb grizzly bear.

    Nat Geo Wild, a joint venture from National Geographic Ventures (NGV) and Fox Cable Networks, was unveiled in October to replace Fox Reality Channel.

    Nat Geo Wild launches on 29 March in the US





    Nat Geo Wild and Nat Geo Wild HD are set to launch in the US on 29 March 2010.

    Both channels will traverse the globe to bring stories of the natural world. New series and specials will feature the latest technology to immerse viewers in the mysterious and entertaining lives of nature's ferocious fighters and gentle creatures of land, sea and air.

    Nat Geo Wild programming will include Africa's Lost Eden, which takes viewers to war-torn Mozambique, where park rangers are desperately trying to execute one of the most ambitious animal relocation efforts in history and restore one of their country's greatest natural treasures.

    Then, meet a troop of Rebel Monkeys in Jaipur who are on a crime spree. In Expedition Wild with Casey Anderson, the naturalist treks to Yellowstone and Alaska's Kodiak Island to learn more about wild bear behaviour and teach these skills to his grizzly pal, raised in captivity.

    Two National Geographic Explorers lead viewers through very different paradises: Mireya Mayor delves deep into Congo's forests to enter the private world of the Mystery Gorillas, and Enric Sala plunges into shark-filled waters to learn the secrets of Shark Island.

    Another show that will air is Hunt for the Giant Octopus. It's one of the ocean's most enigmatic creatures, with eight legs, high intelligence and the ability to discreetly melt into its surroundings.

    The giant octopus is said to reach 33 feet across, can weigh 400 pounds and is known as the "devilfish" for the horns above its eyes. With the ability to kill sharks, this is one animal even larger in life than in legend. Now, a team of intrepid explorers dive into the wild depths of the Pacific in hopes of unlocking the secrets to this mysterious and magnificent animal.

    Viewers can take a journey through ghostly shipwrecks and wildlife on a deep-sea adventure into the world of the giant octopus. And discover these creatures' phenomenal size, remarkable intelligence and extraordinary ability to morph in response to their surroundings.
