"How the Majestic Ganges Has Shaped the Landscape, Wildlife and Culture of India."
Filmed in stunning high definition, Ganges is a sumptuous series that tells the story of the most extraordinary river in the world. The Ganges runs through the heart of India. For millions of Hindus it is India's sacred river, but they share its banks and waters with a rich variety of wildlife. In a kaleidoscope of color and energy, this amazing series reveals how the Ganges has shaped the wildlife, culture and beliefs of India. The journey begins at the source of the river, high in the cold peaks of the Himalayas. It heads down past tigers, otters, peacocks, and wild herds of elephants before reaching Varanasi, one of the oldest and most sacred cities in the world. Arriving at the delta, where the Ganges meets the sea, modern cities such as Calcutta join with the ancient swamps of the Sunderbans. This amazingly diverse wetland, rarely filmed before, is home to giant lizards, man-eating crocodiles and forests full of monkeys. Here the tiger is still king, and man is on the menu.
Editor's Note
The Ganges river is both a potent religious symbol for millions of Hindus and a habitat for much of India's diverse wildlife. This documentary from the BBC follows the course of the mighty waterway as it flows past the Himalayas and herds of wild elephants, before reaching the sacred city of Varanasi, the teeming metropolis of Calcutta, and the rich wetlands of Sunderbans. This journey through nature, culture, and history includes the episodes "Daughter of the Mountains," "River of Life," and "Waterland."
