NGC to air one hour long documentary on the natural calamity in Uttarakhand

NEW DELHI: National Geographic Channel is known for inspiring its viewers and satisfying the innate curiosity through its innovative shows that challenge what we know and how we perceive our world. NGC has created award winning documentaries that capture events with a global impact such as the Indian Ocean Tsunami, Bhopal Gas Tragedy & Hurricane Sandy through shows like "Seconds from Disaster" & "Trapped". These special documentaries go beyond the headlines, explore deep inside the events leading up to the catastrophe as well its aftermath and humanise the tragedy through personal accounts of survival & loss.

NGC is now producing a special documentary on the recent natural calamity in Uttarakhand, which will attempt to understand why this happened and how it happened. The documentary would take viewers back to the initial terrifying moments of the catastrophe and also the rescue and evacuation efforts spearheaded by the Armed Forces, with insights from valorous soldiers who rescued thousands of trapped civilians. It would also showcase interviews with experts and scientists who will shed light on the entire disaster. As the nation still struggles to come to terms with the destructive flood that washed away everything in its path, the documentary would track the events as it unfolded.

Commenting on the documentary, Fox International Channels VP content programming Swati Mohan said, "The floods in Uttarkhand are extremely unfortunate and have once again unraveled our helplessness when faced by nature's wrath. The mass devastation and destruction caused is appalling. Through this documentary we intend to look into the calamity from multiple points of view. From exploring factors that led to the flood, to looking at the mammoth task of recovery and rehabilitation that lies ahead - the documentary will provide our viewers a deeper and better understanding of the 'Himalayan Tsunami'."
