National Geographic To Launch Worldwide
  NEW YORK, New York, USA, 96/12/06 (Shoptalk) -- NBC and National
Geographic Television have formed a joint venture to launch National
Geographic channels throughout the world in 1997.

  The channels will carry documentary, drama and children's shows, using
National Geographic's library of nature programming as well as shows that
will be acquired.  NBC's US network and its European channel already carry
programming produced by National Geographic.

  To start, the venture will launch cable and satellite delivered channels
in Latin America, Europe and Asia, in cooperation with local partners in
each territory.  Financial contributions from the partners were not disclosed.
