RMC Découverte Orders Pernel Series on Ancient Landmarks


RMC Découverte has commissioned Pernel Media’s factual series Monumental Revelations, which explores large ancient structures such as Machu Picchu.

The French DTT channel will air the four-part series that uncovers secrets behind such famous monuments and archeological wonders as the Great Wall of China, Petra, Machu Picchu and Le Mont Saint-Michel. Each episode explores the history of these landmarks, examining them from various perspectives, including aerial views, satellite imagery and even microscopically. Pernel Media retains global rights for Monumental Revelations.

“We’re taking a completely new and unique approach to an engineering series in Monumental Revelations,” said Samuel Kissous, the president of Pernel Media. “By using this ‘zoom-in/zoom-out’ approach, modern technology allows us to get answers to questions of population, geology, architecture and construction that help us better understand these remarkable structures.”
