Discovery Channel to tell ‘The Story of India’

Discovery Channel plans to journey into the most ancient surviving civilisation. The channel is premiering a six-part series, ‘The Story of India’, from April 16. Narrated by Michael Wood, the series would be aired on Wednesdays at 8 pm.

Deepak Shourie, EVP & MD, Discovery Networks India, said, “‘The Story of India’ is a chronological history of India. It will reveal the wonders of India, the diversity and richness of its people, cultures and landscapes and the intense drama of its past, including some of the most momentous events in world history. Viewers will witness the intense journey of a nation which has over the centuries regenerated itself several times. The series is replete with wondrous revelations in quintessential Discovery style.”

The series will show geneticists from the University of Madurai testing the DNA of tribal villagers to get a clue about migration history. The programme will be shown in chronological order from the first civilization – Harappa and Mohenjodaro. It will also highlight the time of the Roman Empire, the opening of the Silk Route and the Spice Route that brought international trade to India. It will also show the Mughal rule and the British invasion, ending with the present state of India.
