Home to over a billion people, India is best known as a diverse mass of noise, crowds, colour and religious devotion.
And she also has a wild side, populated by giants, predators and exotic creatures.
Narrated by the legendary Sir David Attenborough Wild India gives you a fascinating insight into this world-within-a-world, as each show explores the country's extraordinary landscapes and their inhabitants.
Wild India: Elephant Kingdom
To the south of the Himalayas lie wild plains, divided by the Brahmaputra river and home to the magnificent Indian Elephant. In this episode you'll also see red silk cotton trees and rare and beautiful creatures, from the smooth-coated otter to the endangered one-horned rhinoceros, all living together in a perfectly balanced ecosystem.
Wild India: Tiger Jungles
The setting for Rudyard Kipling's 'The Jungle Book', these forests are filled with real-life stories - from langur monkeys intoxicated on fermented Mahua fruit to the Bengal tiger, a beautiful killer combining stealth and power to kill with a single bite.
Wild India: Desert Lions
Marusthali is India's region of death - a dune-covered desert where existence demands resilience and adaptation. Yet even in this unrelenting heat, life thrives, from the Asiatic lion to the Demoiselle crane. Each creature is living proof that wildlife can survive in even the most hostile of environments.
Celebrate the diversity and drama of India’s extraordinary and varied landscapes.
