Secrets of Wild India – telecast dates in India

Secrets of Wild India – telecast dates in India

Many of you already know, but during most of last year, I worked on a series for National Geographic Channel called ‘The Secrets of Wild India’ along with Sara and Mandanna. The films is finally ready and will air early the coming week in India. It has already aired in the UK. Its a 3-part episode and the first part was filmed by Sandesh in Kaziranga and we shot the second two parts in Tadoba and Gujarat.

It has been a privilege to work on this production, especially the fact that David Attenborough has narrated it. Do catch the show and would love to hear what you think about it.

    Hi Kalyan, saw the screening of this episode today, kudos on a job well done!
    Liked the concept of introducing the jungle month by month and trying to show unique behavior for each of the months. Just one bit of feedback was that the usage of graphics throughout the entire show seemed a bit excessive. But thats only my personal opinion. Cheers again on a job well done 🙂

    Watched Desert Lions yesterday. There seem to be a bit of disconnect in the story. The only Lions shown were all from Gir which is definitely not a desert. Also many of the sub plots were left hanging like the leopard, the desert fox, the desert cat etc. BTW, curious to know was the Hyena footage chopped off in the final cut?

    But a very commendable effort nonetheless. Hope to see more such informative programs involving you!

    Great job Kalyan da. At many time we can see the african wildlife in Net geo or Discovery channel. But there are many secrets in wildlife in India also. We do not know them properly. So “Secrets of Wild India” is the great programme for us to know about wildlife of our country.
