This month, GOtv through its Discovery World channel, celebrates men with the broadcast of a series of programming that revel in masculinity.
The heroes in Hollywood action films seem almost superhuman; they dodge bullets, take out the bad guys and save the damsel in distress, but of course, they’re fictional characters. The real heroes are everyday people – diehard to the max, willing to risk their lives for others and laugh at the sight of danger. They battle ferocious elements, changing the course of history and saving hundreds of lives is just another day at the office for these warriors. To celebrate International Men’s Day, GOtv brings subscribers “Hardcore Heroes” on Discovery World on Thursday, 19 November at 9:00pm, local time.
GOtv subscribers will also be inspired by the movie In the Pursuit of Happiness, the true story of Chris Gardner, a San Francisco salesman struggling to build a future for himself and his five year old son Christopher. When his girlfriend Linda walks out, Chris is left to raise Christopher on his own. The movie stars leading Hollywood man, Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith and airs this Saturday, November 14 at 7:00pm, local time on the Sony channel.
GOtv’s public relations manager, Efe Obiomah said: “At GOtv we understand that for our subscribers, going home means going to great family entertainment. From now through the festive season, GOtv will take subscribers on an unforgettable journey filled with, laughter, adventure and loads of fun for the whole family.“
