Under the popular property ‘EPIC Specials’, the channel airs various tales from the length and breadth of the nation between 10 am and 11 am every day. Through these exceptional stories the audience can meet the daredevils behind the adventure sports in the Himalayan terrain, acquaint with the passion for the annual cricket tournament in Himachal Pradesh, Jhiru Cup, witness the unique bond of love between a Forest officer and a female elephant in Kaziranga National Park, discover one man’s fervent passion to preserve the tradition of traveling cinema, among many others.

Below are some of the extraordinary EPIC Specials

EPIC Special: Himalayan Misfits

It's not a thin line but a thick fence that keeps mainstream sports apart from adventure sports. Mainstream sports have players but adventure sports have Misfits – people who are aware of the dangers they have taken upon themselves by making these sports an integral part of their lives. These games have found refuge in the Himalayan terrain. In this documentary, we meet some inspiring Himalayan Misfits who share their on-field experiences, straight from the higher altitudes.

EPIC Special: Love for the Game      
Cricket is no less than a religion in India. Every Indian wants to be a part of the prestige and excitement associated with this game. This documentary takes us to Kullu Sarahan – a village situated at 7000 feet in Himachal Pradesh. Here, a cricket tournament called ‘Jhiru Cup’ is the highlight of their annual mela. The Jhiru Cup is as important as the World Cup for the people here. In fact, even the cricket balls used for gameplay are made in the village itself, and you wouldn’t get these balls elsewhere. Watch their love for the sport come to life, in a spectacle of joy, in this EPIC Special.           

EPIC Special:The Elephant Whisperer and Maya Memsaheb         
A crew visits the Kaziranga National Park to film the Indian Rhinoceros. There comes a moment when they are trapped between the tall grass on one side, and a herd of elephants on another. This incident shifts their interest from the rhinos to the elephants of the National Park, all because of Debeshwar Pegu. Debeshwar is the Elephant Whisperer, working as a Forest Officer, who saves the crew from one of the elephants about to charge. Discover his story and his special bond with Maya, a female elephant living in the National Park.           

EPIC Special: Utsav    
Every corner of the state of Rajasthan is immensely rich in culture and history. 'Utsav' is an extract of this culture straight from the streets of Jaipur - The Pink City. Visit a Rajasthani Mela, where multiple forms of art are exhibited, and people participate primarily to propagate and preserve the culture of their, and our, motherland.               

EPIC Special: A Tent, a Truck and Talkies

With new means of entertainment emerging every year, the travelling cinema-man’s trade was just another fatality, like video libraries and single-screen cinemas. Despite all difficulties, Anup Jagdale drives on as India’s only remaining touring movie-man, though it’s a legacy he never wanted to inherit from his father. Driving a 73-year-old truck to the remotest corners of Maharashtra, with audiences’ preferences changing fast, how long can Anup fight the advances of technology and preserve the tradition of travelling talkies?

EPIC Special: The Pad Piper  
Only 12% of women in India use hygienic absorbent materials like sanitary pads or tampons during menstruation. The rest opt for cloth rags, ashes, newspapers, husk or sand, thus putting themselves at great risk of infection, sterility, cancer, and even death. One man decided to fix this problem in rural India after seeing his wife go through it. Arunachalam Muruganantham, built a low-cost machine that could produce 1,000 pads in 8 hours. This not only helped in solving health-related issues but also gave women employment. Get to know the story behind India's Pad Piper, who created a revolution that is growing by the day.

EPIC Special: Kashmir Ki Virasat       
Go back in time and discover the vivid, yet scattered history of Kashmir. The monarchs of Kashmir, centuries ago, built several temples. But these temples cannot all be seen in present-day Kashmir. Some temples couldn’t defeat the rage of the foreign invaders, and some got defeated by the sands of time. Today, even in their state of ruin, these shattered temples speak volumes about their history. The few that have survived and are standing tall are monuments of grace even today. Kashmir Ki Virasat brings their oft-forgotten history to life.

EPIC Special: Rampath          
A narrative on the Ramleela art form performed in Jaswant Nagar, India. It is not performed on a stage but on the roads of the town. Recognized by UNESCO as the world's best field Ramleela and categorized as an UNESCO intangible heritage.               

EPIC Special: Nanda Devi

The three-week-long Nanda Devi Raj Jat is a pilgrimage and festival of Uttarakhand in India. People from the entire Garhwal-Kumaon Division, as well as other parts of India and the world participate in Nanda Devi Raj Jat Yatra. The pilgrimage starts from Nauti village near Karnprayag and goes up to the heights of Roopkund and Homekund with a four horned sheep. This yatra covers many villages, interesting legends and awe-inspiring locales. The journey is difficult because of the difficult terrain it goes through, it goes high upto 16000 feet above sea level. Besides many interesting places, one passes by a Lake known as Roopkund which is surrounded by hundreds of ancient skeletons and there are interesting legends behind this skeletal lake.
