National Geographic Channel apologized to us for not sticking to their published schedule. After speaking with them, they told us Mark’s episode will air these two upcoming dates:
Sunday, September 15 at 4:30 am central
Wednesday, September 25 at 5:30 pm central
After what has happened, make sure to check your TV guide to verify these dates and times. We also appreciate everyone who wrote the network to express their displeasure with not showing Mark’s episode. I’m sure it will air other dates as well, but these are the current published dates. Do not pay attention to dates on their web site–chances are it will never be correct.
We are sorry that Mark’s episode did not air tonight, 8/19, as originally scheduled. The network, that is National Geographic Channel, lied to it’s viewers again regarding this series. Once we hear back from them, we’ll update you on the schedule.
Please contact NatGeo at this email address to express your dissatisfaction with them not showing “Fallen Hero” tonight and for already showing it two weeks before originally scheduled. A lot of people won’t get to see it now b/c they didn’t do what they said they would. Once again it’s:
Mark’s episode, “Fallen Hero”, aired August 5 at 8:30 pm and 10:30 pm. This was a surprise to all of us. According to NatGeo, it will air again on these dates and times (all times listed are central):
4:30 p.m. Aug. 12
9:30 p.m. Aug. 19 (did not air)
6:30 p.m. Aug. 26 (did not air)
Beginning July 1, 2013, National Geographic Channel is premiering a few new series’ for the summer. One of them is Eyewitness War. Here is the official description of the series:
“Eyewitness War follows the men and women of the armed forces through the chaos of battle with real-life, first-person footage. We’ll see them ready to face whatever hell awaits around every corner — from screeching bullets to IEDs to rockets. See the dangerous missions and perils of war through the eyes of our brave American service members — as the fighting is happening. Unfiltered, raw and intense, you’ll hear their shouts and see their comrades’ every move, in first person.”
Mark’s episode is called “Fallen Hero” and will air Monday, Aug 19 at 9:30 pm central. Some of his helmet cam footage will be used with a few of his teammates (Chad, Ben, and Jarrod) translating what is happening, and Mark’s role in that battle.
To read about Mark’s episode, check the Eyewitness War web site.
This should be a very powerful and enlightening series, helping American’s see what our military experience in battle–their words, their horrors, their footage.
Here is an excellent article on Mark and this episode in The Tuscaloosa News.
Keep checking the National Geographic web site for up-to-date information and previews.
