1st Logo (1994-Early 1996)

Logo: On a dark background, a flipping image of a CD flying to become a semicircle shaped CD. The CD turns into a semicircular red sun, forming the CGI version of the 1987-1995 The Discovery Channel logo.

Technique: The CD flying andbecoming the sun and the Discovery Channel logo appearing.

Music/Sounds: Same as the Discovery Channel Video Library logo.

Availability: Seen on Operation Weather Disaster and Big Job.

2nd Logo (1996-1999)

Logo: On a dark background, we see texts in different languages appearing fast. The languages follow in this order:

  • Spanish: "DESCUBRIENDO EL MUNDO" (Discovering the World)
  • Arabian: "تعرفي على العالم حولك" (Learn about the World around You)
  • French: "REGARDS SUR LE MONDE" (Views on the World)
  • Portuguese: "DESCOBRINDO O MUNDO" (Discovering the World)
  • German: "AUF ENTDECKUNGSKURS" (On discovery course)
  • Hebrew: "העולם אצלך בבית" (The World in your house)
  • Italian: "SCOPRIRE E CONOCERE" (Discover and know)
  • Indonesian: "JENDELA DUNIA ANDA" (Your Window on the World)
  • Norweigan: "SLIPP VERDEN INN" (Release the World In)
  • Japanese: "探険、 ふしきの世界"
  • Danish: "LÆR VERDEN AT KENDE" (Getting the World to know)
  • Dutch: "BRENGT DE WERELD BIJ JE THUIS" (Bring the World at your home)
  • English: "EXPLORE YOUR WORLD"

After we see "EXPLORE YOUR WORLD", we see five mulberry circles of ascendent size surrounding "O" of "EXPLORE", and we see a red dot moving on the fourth circle (that represents an electron). Suddenly "EXPLORE YOUR WORLD" disappears and the circles become a CD, then a compass, and finally the Earth and forms the Discovery Channel logo. Finally, we see MULTIMEDIA appearing below it with a red line behind the globe (that is rotating).

Technique: It's a CGI logo.

Music/Sounds: A dark piano melody, followed by some technological sounds (i.e. beeps and synth sizzles), which ends with a 3-note synth fanfare.

Availability: Ultra rare. It can be seen on Savage: The Ultimate Quest for Survival, Bizantine: The Betrayal, Evolution: The Game of Intelligent Life and the Spanish game El Taller de Inventos (The Workshop Inventions).
