Discovery Communications looking for Nazi treasure as it gets permission to film World War II train mystery that might yield precious artworks, gold.
Discovery Communications is looking for possible Nazi gold in Poland where Discovery got permission and access to film the investigation into a World War II armored train mystery.
In 2016 Discovery International Networks will show the investigation and process on one of the Discovery channels on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform that is taking place in that country and that will hopefully solve an intriguing historical mystery.
Discovery will be filming the investigation of the Department of geophysics at the University of Science and Technology (AGH) in the town of Walbrzych, looking into what might be buried at the potential final resting place of a German armored train that's been buried deep underground for 70 years.
According to speculation over the years, priceless artwork and gold could be onboard the Nazi train.
In a statement Marjorie Kaplan, president of content for Discovery Networks International says Discovery will "help chronicle what will no doubt continue to be a globally captivating story, and could be one of the most significant World War Two archaeological finds ever made".
"We are proud to have the world's eyes on Poland as we stand alongside our local partners to capture these events as they unfold. We look forward to sharing this story around the world in a way that only Discovery can through its global networks and rich heritage of capturing these monumental moments in history," says Olgierd Dobrzynski, the general manager for Discovery Networks Poland.
"Our experience and modern equipment will contribute to solving the riddle that has kept so many people around the world interested," says Prof. Janusz Madej, the chief of research expedition at AGH's Department of Geophysics.
