Discovery Science Channel needs to discover facts


Modern science and modern media are more about fiction than fact!

Modern science and modern media are more about fiction than fact!

Channel surfing I caught at Discovery – Science a programme on Gunpowder somewhere between 15:00-18:00 on 9th November 2010.

In this entire rather long and boring episode, there was no mention at all of India. Not once. Strange, because, India was the largest industrial producer of saltpeter, for hundreds of years, the most important ingredient in gunpowder.

The credits at the end claimed that this was made by a  Granite Production – a regular supplier of documentaries to BSkyB – British Sky Broadcasting, from where Discovery Science apparently picked this up. I have written to Discovery Science about this. Let me see how they respond!

If they do – that is!

    discovery thinks that Krishna is hindu god of love.
    and i have seen enough instances where the translation of bhagawan is done not as God. but as gods wrongly to misinterpret hindu as polytheist stupid religion.
    we need to keep track of theset hings. we need organisation. anti defamation organissation. we need to maintain database. crowd source to create the database like wikipedia.
