3D CGI in culture heritage preservation
Is there a program or extra degree or something required for that? Or is good knowledge in 3D modeling and texturing all that's needed? I just found out about this last week. Until then I thought all that CG effect in Discovery, History, NG, etc channels is just part of animation or digital effects of film industry, and not having a special name.

DOES it have a special name? As far as I was aware, the job would work the same as any other job at a 3D studio. The clients would probably have some specialists that would check that the renders look accurate but that's about it.
Have a look at this thread for a better understanding on what's involved.

I thought heritage preservation CGI was the set of scanning, compliance pass and cataloguing and various related things, which is mostly a mix of procedural passes on sonars, lidars, IRs and so on and knowing what to do with the data before taking artistic license.
The only two times I heard of it it amounted to that, at least.
I don't think the work done for docos has a specific name, never heard it referred to specifically at least, not even from BBC people (which we did have had around frequently for a while).

Yeah that sounds more right. Digital catelogging of historical/museum assets.
With documetaries sometimes you are dealing with historical data and just as often not at all.

For the TV shows it's usually just a one off thing done by the Studio doing the effects.
The main requirement there is to make it look good.
If your thinking long term as far as working in the field itself usually a archaeology degree or something along those lines maybe required.
The Savannah School of Art and Design has a Historic preservation degree. You might be able to do that with a minor in visual effects degree. I've been thinking of doing something like that for my masters degree. I don't think it has a specific name though, maybe just digital preservation.
A few links that may help some:
