Animal Planet showcases the 'Land of the Tiger' next month

MUMBAI: Vast, exotic and awe inspiring! These are a few of the adjectives that come to mind when one thinks of the natural habitats for animals in India. Animal Planet has announced that it will launch a series next month Land Of The Tiger which will air every Saturday in April at 10 pm.


Filmed over three years each episode focusses on one region or habitat type highlighting its opulent beauty. From the Himalayas to the coral reefs of the Indian Ocean the programme takes viewers on a journey across the subcontinent. Along the way it offers unique glimpses like a tiger stalking a monkey, flying lizards, swimming elephants, singing apes and dancing spiders

Viewers get an insight into the array of wildlife that the Indian subcontinent supports. The show also brings to light India's fragile eco-systems. The show will be presented and narrated by Valmik Thapar. The show explores the close but growing uneasy alliance between the human population and wildlife and the means through which humanity finds its close empathy with nature - myth, legend, culture and religion.



The episode titled The Tiger's Domain plots the evolution of all life within the Indian subcontinent and explores the close relationship between religion and wildlife, showing how Hindu and Jain festivals can be seen as celebrations of the natural world. Sacred Waters showcases the great northern plains which are watered by the Ganges, the Indus and the Brahmaputra. Wild buffalo, elephants and one-horned rhinos share the rivers' bounty with the crocodile-like gharial and freshwater dolphins.

Unknown Seas features water worlds as far apart as Andaman and Nicobar islands, including swimming elephants, giant manta rays and weird octopus at Lakshadweep, and the spectacular coral reef in the Gulf of Kutch.
