Discovery World is a European television channel which features programming in the fields of travel, culture and history. Discovery World offers a mix of history, culture, real life stories, investigation, mystery shows, factual series and documentaries. Its programming is mainly in English and locally subtitled or dubbed. In some countries the advertisement and the announcements between programs are localized.

History[edit]

In Europe the channel started as Discovery Civilisation, also called Discovery Civilisation Channel, in the UK in 1998 and later followed by other European countries.[1] Discovery Civilisation focused on history-related programs. On April 18, 2008, the channel changed its name into Discovery World and extended its program lineup to also include programs about culture, crime and "mysterious phenomena".[2][3][4]
