India is a land of diverse cultures. Each state has their own identity allowing for a national melting pot of cultures. With India’s surging population, our view of India might be one where the country is essentially a mass urban sprawl. This is quite the opposite, however, as evidence by the PBS and BBC collaboration documentary: India – Nature’s Wonderland. This documentary follows three natural enthusiasts in India where they each tackle an individual biome: one following animal conservation in desert-like conditions, another traversing through tropical rainforests, and finally one who treks the Himalayas. From the Elephant Mountains in Kerala to the tea plantations in Assam, India’s beauty is truly exposed. This is in the first episode. The second episode offers a perspective on wildlife and nature in India. Specifically, it touches on topics dealing with conservation efforts. While the government cannot afford to fund all the parks across the country, local villagers aid in the effort by performing rituals for tourists to protect the parks. These rituals are now a part of Indian culture and show how wildlife is perceived in India. India – Nature’s Wonderland is a very pleasant documentary to watch leisurely that tells tales of cultures across India.

It's worth watching at least because of the "ugly frog" and hornbill. You can't find it on youtube - the actual sound of hornbill's heavy wings.

Three presenters take turns in this BBC documentary examining aspects of India, from geography to biology to culture, with a particular emphasis on the relationship between people and animals. Enlightening and engaging, and beautifully filmed. This could easily be expanded to twice its length.
