Secrets of Wild India

India is home to over a billion people who comprise one fifth of the world’s population, occupying only 2% of the Earth’s surface.  Yet India still has a wild side, populated by giants, fierce predators, the rare and beautiful…all wrapped up in a land of extremes.  Wild India celebrates the diversity and drama of India’s extraordinary and varied landscapes.

In this three-part series, each episode focuses on one iconic ecosystem. It exhibits a snapshot of daily life in each unique environment. Packed with beauty, bizarre coalitions, hardship, death and new life, this series gives the viewer a front row seat to the wildlife spectacles that are the jewels in the crown of Asian natural history.

Episode 1 – Elephant Kingdom – Hidden away in the shadow of the Himalayas, roam the last great herds of India’s giant grazers; one-horned rhinoceroses, wild buffaloes and Asian elephants. Through the eyes of a newborn elephant calf, visit a land of unforeseen contrast and variety.

Episode 2  Tiger Jungles – The jungles of India are battlefields ruled by tooth and claw, where species fight for space, food and water. Dominated by the Royal Bengal Tiger and the Indian Wild Dog, it sure is not a world of a whole lot of compassion and benevolence.

Episode 3Desert Lions – The Indian desert is a breathtaking but inhospitable place to live. The lions, leopards and desert cats, that call it home, must endure sandstorms, droughts and persistent heat.
