    The FBI Files

    Discovery Channel (ended 2006)
    Through re-enactments of high profile cases involving the FBI, the show reveals how agents solve these crimes behind the scene. The show producers work with FBI special agents and examiners in high tech crime labs to portrait each case accurately. You will learn how the FBI protects the lives of Americans and brings the most notorious criminals to justice. The FBI was originally established to address crime that covered cities, counties, and spread across state lines. The country needed a federal law-enforcement entity to do those investigations. And over the years, as the country has grown and as the world, by the same token, has grown smaller, the FBI’s mission has changed to meet the various threats. The show is hosted by James Kallstrom, the former director in charge of the FBI's New York office. Along with The New Detectives, the FBI File is one of Discovery Channel's highest rated series. The FBI Files is also available on international televisions. Globally, key outlets include RTL 2 in Germany, Channel 5 in the UK, TVDanmark, and the Discovery Channel in the UK, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Selected regional showtime: Discovery Channel (U.S.): weekdays at 3PM EST / PST Discovery Asia: Friday at 11PM Discovery Australia: Wednesday at 7:30PM AESTmoreless

    Steve the star was born after a chance encounter with his friend, a television producer who was filming in the Park for TV. In true Steve style they took a punt and the first documentary, "The Crocodile Hunter" was produced in 1992. The tremendous success of this one program quickly encouraged the making of more and so over the next 3 years, 10 one hour episodes were made and on television screens all over the world. Steve has now filmed 50 episodes of "Crocodile Hunter", 52 episodes of "Croc Files", and his next project will be an animated series. WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE CROCODILE HUNTER SERIES? Steve: "Our aim is to continue producing more wildlife programmes to entertain and enlighten. We'll take the audience to some of the wildest and remotest territories in the world. The time has come when all of us must be accountable. We don't own the planet Earth, we belong to it. And we must share it with our wildlife. It's obvious that every man, woman and child can contribute to the well being of our native wildlife and the planet through simple day-to-day stuff such as recycling, chemical and pollution awareness, and not wasting water. Terri and I eat, sleep and live for wildlife. Our love, passion, and devotion is to educate and share with the world our magnificent - often threatened or sometimes threatening - wildlife. Our job in this world is to bring misunderstood and feared animals (as well as the cute and cuddlies) right into your house, so that we can share and learn about the world's wildlife.

    Terri: "Steve and I are very lucky to live and work with what we love best. Zoo life definitely has its ups and downs but there is nothing else we'd rather be doing. It's our goal and our passion to open everyone's hearts to love and care for wildlife for generations to come."

    The adventures of A.R.K. is a show about a group of vet volunteers,a vet.and a vet assistant who in every half hour episode help animals in need. At the end of every show during the end credits they talk about the animal that was featured in that episode. In each episode there is an animal in need that they try to help, but in some episodes it also can deal with that issue and another issue and it will be connected somehow. There is one boy who even has a monkey for a pet. This show deals with some pretty serious issues involving animals. You would be surprised at some of the things that these kids go through to save these animals. Even though sometimes they have to go through some tough things to save them, but no matter what it takes to save these animals they always come through. In the last season there was only one episode {changes in the air} to show the changes that are happening in the show, but even though there are a bunch of changes going on, they still find a way to save the animals and help them out. This show shows that animals have feelings too and should be treated like humans are because they are just like us. Information about Season 1 Season one introduced you to the characters and showing you how much they love animals and showing you some of the challenges that they would go through to save animals from bad situations. You learn why some of them like animals so much and you learn that animals should be treated with the same respect that humans get. You learn that animals are almost just like us because they have a way to communicate with other animals and all kind of stuff. In this season, you learn animals should be treated with respect. Information about Season 2 In this season you get reintroduced to the characters and their love of animals .You see them go through a bunch more tough challenges to save animals lives, but in this season you see that some animals can be harmful in their own defense. You see that some people can get hurt if their not careful around animals. You also that one of the vet volunteers, after a shark attack struggles to see how much he really loves animals. A lot of things are happening in this season but the message remains the same. Animals should be treated with respect. Information about Season 3 In Season three there was only one episode but this episode showed a bunch of changes happening at the animal shelter. You see one of the volunteers is going away back to his hometown.Another volunteer got accepted to college and a bunch of other changes are happening but you still get the message that you should treat animals with respect and change is not all that bad all the time.moreless
