A small correction, the program is "Inside Out" on Discovery Channel. Rest all are same as you have mentioned.

Megafactories is aired on National Geography Channel, right?

Anyways it would be worth watching..

Tata-Sky's planner does not show it yet. Even I was planning to record it, but I guess we need to wait longer till Tata-Sky wakes up.

Sorry for the OT on this thread.

That's awesome, thanks for sharing. Sureshot watch tomorrow night.

I hope it's an insightful show with behind-the-scenes stuff never known before. Going by Discovery's usually high production quality, it'll be sweet and not some silly marketing exercise.

Just checked the Discovery website, the program will be aired in Discovery Channel and not on Discovery HD world, if that's what you mean by "aired in High Definition".

How I wish it was aired on the HD channel too!

Here's the complete program guide: http://www.discoverychannel.co.in/tv-listings

On a related note, A similar program was aired by NGC sometime on the making of Tata Nano. Here's a discussion and video of the program:

No luck. Nothing on Discovery, or Discovery HD or on Discovery Science at 8pm. Only hope now is some other time slot or day.

I too checked out the weekly schedules of Discovery and Nat Geo on the internet but could not find anything. If there is a program on the XUV on TV, probably we can expect a email from Purple Club?

Also watch Discovery Turbo on Wednesday 2nd October at 2000 hours. Just caught a fleeting look at a Promo showing Anand Mahindra in the foreground with the XUV behind him.

Am on Airtel digital TV. Discovery channel is on channel no. 340. However the program guide on the STB reads as "Super Sunday nights" against the 8 pm slot. This program doesn't feature in the list. Could this program be a part of the super Sunday nights?
