Comments: Ganges is a nature documentary series for television on the natural history of the River Ganges in India and Bangladesh. Over the course of three episodes, the series is presented as a journey from the source of the river in the high Himalaya to its delta at the Bay of Bengal

Summary: 1. Daughter of the Mountains

The first episode begins at the Gangotri Glacier in the Indian Himalaya, regarded as the true source of the Ganges, and follows the river 150 miles downstream through the mountain valleys to the edge of the north Indian floodplain and the holy city of Haridwar.

2. River of Life

Beyond the mountains, the fast-flowing river slows and spreads out over the plains, forming a marshy grassland known as the Terai. Animals featured include the rare Indian rhinoceros and Ganges river dolphin, but on these polluted and crowded waters their future is certain.

3. Waterland

The Ganges eventually flows into the Brahmaputra and drains into the Bay of Bengal via a huge delta. In the coastal mangroves of the Sundarbans the locals share an uneasy existence with tigers.
