Discovery Channel to launch four-part series ‘Planet Healers’ starting 8 Mar

MUMBAI: Discovery Channel is launching a new four-part series called ‘Planet Healers’ starting 8th March every Friday at 8 pm with Jim Sarbh as the host, making his debut on Indian television. ‘Planet Healers’ is a first of its kind series featuring eight start-ups who are working tirelessly to find innovative solutions to environmental hazards that we face today.

Jim Sarbh will give the audience a deep dive into how these start-ups are focusing on complex and at the same time extremely important issues like unplanned urbanisation, electronic waste management, air pollution, and fuel recycling. He will also be seen playing an integral role in educating viewers about the current environmental concerns and will give a reality check on how these hazards are impacting our planet.

“I don’t believe in the separation between mankind and nature. Mankind is nature. It is only natural, that nature would find a way to heal itself, through mankind. I am excited by this Discovery’s new series ‘Planet Healers’ and the startups on it. Hope more people stretch their imaginations in the direction of conservation and preservation of our large, wonderful, home,” said host Jim Sarbh.
