C21Media.net, 19 August 2010, Adam Benzine: "Discovery Networks Asia Pacific (DNAP) is set to launch five new pay-TV networks in India, including Discovery 3D and Investigation Discovery. According to local reports, the broadcaster has applied for a licence to launch five more channels in the country: Discovery Kids, Military Channel, Discovery Home And Health, as well as ID and the aforementioned 3D network. The news comes after DNAP earlier this year launched its Discovery Science and Discovery Turbo channels in the territory. The five new nets would take DNAP's Indian portfolio to 11 channels, with existing channels including Discovery Channel, HD World, Discovery Travel & Living and Animal Planet."

WorldScreen.com, 18 August 2010: "Coinciding with the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Investigation Discovery is to air a new documentary, ID Investigates: Why is Bin Laden Alive?, which looks at how it is possible that no one has been able to capture or kill the al-Qaeda leader. ... 'ID is proud to partner with the world-class news unit at the BBC, and world-renowned journalist Peter Bergen, to offer viewers an in-depth examination into the theories surrounding his disappearance, and provide some possible answers—something we’re all looking for.'"
