MUMBAI: EPIC Channel's upcoming original series will take you behind the heavily guarded gates of army regimental centres. The regiment is a soldiers’ second family and each regiment has its own illustrious history, and glorious traditions. The show provides insights into their training, lineage, legacy and all that goes into turning a civilian into a soldier.

Regiment Diaries, which will air from August 16th, is a tribute to the valiant men that make these regiments, and who honour the simplest thing in life - love for the motherland, above all else. Each episode is a showcase of brave tales that warm the heart, moisten the eye, and leave you in even greater awe of the bravest children of India.

Though several documentaries and movies have been made about the Indian army in the past, this is the first time that an entire series of this scale is filmed inside real regimental centres, with real army men - serving, and retired - speaking about their life and experience as soldiers of India in times of peace and war.

EPIC has worked closely with ADG-PI, the public information wing of the Indian Army and the individual regiment centres, doggedly pursuing the show through every procedure and permission, to make a deserving re-telling of our nation’s brave hearts.

Akul Tripathi, Content and Programming head, EPIC Channel said, “We have it as our mission to celebrate every aspect of India and the celebration was always incomplete until we celebrated the Indian Army. In many ways, this show is special for us; it is also our personal mark of gratitude and pride for the army. Every person who has worked on the show, has gone that extra mile for this particular series and had only this much to say for it – ‘ itna toh banta hai’.”

The weekly series will be telecast every Thursday at 10 pm. Episodes feature stories of various battles from India’s history, and the regiment’s contributions in it along with anecdotes of both battle, and the preparations that go into making men ready for battle. Each episode also explores the specific traditions and culture within each regiment and how they each add colour and character to the fabric of the Indian army.

The show will be flagged off with an episode on the Madras Engineers Group regiment, followed by episodes on other regiments including Rajputana Rifles, Sikh Regiment, Jat Regiment, Maratha Light Infantry amongst others.

On Independence Day, EPIC will release a 4-min trailer of Regiment Diaries that embodies the soul of the show. This will be part of a specially curated day-long programming line-up that includes episodes from its popular shows, riveting documentaries on historic battles of independent India by Maj. Gen. G.D Bakshi and a revisiting of historic moments through a compilation of iconic speeches by Indian leaders, which changed the course of Indian politics and society, from their show ‘Bharat Ki Awaaz.’
