How the majestic Ganges has shaped the landscape, wildlife and culture of India.

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 kaleidoscope of color and energy, with stunning high definition picture quality and detail, 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 the tigers, otters, peacocks and wild herds of elephants among the riverbanks of the lush foothills before reaching Varanasi, one of the oldest and most sacred cities in the world. Here in the fertile central plains, Sarus cranes and troops of macaques thrive but other animals - such as the unique Gangetic river dolphins and gharial crocodiles - struggle to survive.

Reaching the delta, where the Ganges meets the sea, modern cities such as Calcutta join with the ancient swamps of the Sunderbans. This amazingly divers 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.

8-9-17 The poisoning of the Ganges
The poisoning of the Ganges
India's holy river emerges from the Himalayas crystal clear. By its end, it's filled with industrial sludge, human waste, and decomposing corpses. The Ganges is India's largest river. Stretching 1,570 miles across the northern half of the country, it provides water to hundreds of millions of people. In many cases, that's not a good thing. The Ganges is more than a source of drinking and bathing water. To millions of Hindus across the country, Ma Ganga ("Mother Ganga") is a spiritual center. It is believed to be the physical embodiment of a beloved goddess who chose to live on Earth so she could cleanse the faithful's sins. Worshippers travel to the banks of Ma Ganga for spiritual purification in life and death. To bathe in her waters is to be granted heavenly blessings. To die in her waters, or to have one's ashes scattered there, is to break the cycle of reincarnation and achieve eternal liberation. But decades of overuse and careless pollution have taken their toll on the sacred waters. Now the second most polluted river in the world, the Ganges is dirtier than it has ever been. The river emerges from the snowy peaks of the Himalayas — just a few miles from India's border with Tibet — crystal clear. But as the river snakes through thousands of villages and cities on its way to the Bay of Bengal it thickens and browns. The sacred waters have become a receptacle for personal and industrial waste. In the most densely populated areas, the water's surface is nothing more than a floating trash heap. But the uglier and more dangerous reality floats below: millions of gallons of raw sewage and toxic waste from tanneries and other local industries that are dumped into the river daily. (Webmaster's comment: The cesspool of a primitive nation. And they bathe in it and drink from it.)

India's dying mother
The Ganges is one of the greatest rivers on Earth, but it is dying. From the icy Himalayan peaks, where it begins, right down to the Bay of Bengal, it is being slowly poisoned. The Ganges is revered in India but it is also the sewer that carries away the waste from the 450 million people who live in its catchment area. Pollution from the factories and farms of the fastest-growing large economy in the world – and from the riverside cremation of Hindu true believers - has turned its waters toxic. (Webmaster's comment: They drink from it, they bathe in it, wash clothes in it, pee in it, and shit in it. How anyone survives using it is a miracle!)
