Does any traditional Shoalin practitioners know this form? It is suppose to consist of various
falling techniques. I once heard it was seen on Kung Fu Special on the Discovery channel.

Ditang Quan is what you are referring to. You will see many of the so-called Shaolin monks do this routine but it is not peculiar to Shaolin. In fact, there are an number of people who do or teach the same routine throughout the martial arts colleges in China.

Be prepared to get bruised while you learn how to fall correctly though....

The special you're referring to from the Discovery channel is no doubt "Secret of the Warrior's Power". In case you're interested it has a web site at http://www.warriorspower.com/. You should also be able to find it for sale at Amazon.com.
