What does (wt) mean?
I wanted to write about Bear Grylls today.
I have not written anything for almost a month at Where Did My Brain Go? so I turned to my favorite topic, and looked for news.
I started at the logical place, Bear’s Blog, but it has not been updated since November 25th. So I surfed over to http://discovery.com/bear/ where I ran into Discovery’s awful Flash monstrosity. I cannot figure out anything from that site, and I really wish they would change it.
Where is Bear Grylls News?
My next stop, was Discovery’s schedule, where I finally learned something.
Bear Eats (wt) will debut tomorrow (Dec 21) at 9 P.M. Discovery’s description:
“In this special film Bear Grylls takes us to nature’s kitchen.
It seems nothing–except maybe the fat of on a camel’s hump- is beyond Bear Grylls.”
Note: Discovery’s typos.
I searched for mission everest, to see if it was also called a “special film,“ but it has been removed from their site.
Bear Eats (wt)
A “special film” sounds good, but what does the (wt) mean? After a search through schedules, I tried email to firstname.lastname@example.org, expecting it to have an autoresponder. No such luck. No reply.
My next stop was Discovery’s lengthy, but useless, TV FAQ, which contained a link to their site map.
The site map led me to Viewer Relations where, under “Question regarding,” I finally found “Discovery.com Web site.”
I sent them this message:
what does (wt) mean? As in "Bear Eats (wt)" ? FYI: I write about Bear Grylls at: https://wheredidmybraingo.com/
I pressed Send with a sigh of relief, certain that my “FYI” would produce a response in seconds:
Thank you for contacting Viewer Relations.
We make every effort to reply within one week of receipt of your message.
Please check our website for additional information..http://www.discovery.com
I can’t wait a week! Can somebody please tell me what (wt) means?
