Military to Invade Discovery


Discovery Channel’s primetime hours Saturday, May 27, will be occupied by sister network Military Channel.

The schedule for the takeover is as follows:

• At 8 p.m., Discovery will air the world premiere of Best of GI Factory, which “takes viewers inside the fascinating and secretive world of military equipment.”

• The network premiere of Ace in the Hole -- which details the capture of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein -- follows at 9 p.m.

• Finally, at 10 p.m., the network will air Anatomy of an Abrams Tank, during which defense experts at General Dynamics Corp.'s tank-assembly facility will examine the latest in armored technology.
