Ganges is a nature documentary series for television about the natural history of the River Ganges in India and Bangladesh. As the variety of animals and habitats found along the river 2510 km (1557 miles) range, the programs also have cultures, traditions and religions of very large human population that supports it. For Hindus, the Ganges is a holy river and a place of pilgrimage, a profound influence on their religion and culture, and their blood. Over three episodes, the series is presented as a journey from the source of the river in the high Himalayas to its mouth in the Bay of Bengal. Daughter of the mountains. The first episode begins at the Gangotri Glacier in the Indian Himalayas, considered as the true source of the Ganges, and follows the river downstream through 150 miles of mountain valleys on the edge of the plains of northern India and the holy city of Haridwar.

River of Life. Beyond the mountains, fast flowing river slows and spreads over the plain, forming a marshy meadow known as the Terai. Animals included are the rare Indian rhinoceros and the Gangetic dolphin, but in these polluted waters, and filled his future is uncertain.

Waterland. The Ganges flows into the Brahmaputra and flows into the Bay of Bengal through a huge delta. In the coastal mangroves of the Sundarbans locals share a difficult existence with the Tigers.
