Now I understand how important this river is in this land of heat and drought, and its effect on the life of so many people. Pictures are great on my 47 inch LCD 120hz. The story from the the Himalayas to the delta in the sea of Bengal is well told. It is a nice blend of the life of the people, the geography, the climate and the wildlife. Not too much of anyone, mostly of the gods that are so important for the Hindouhism, but very complicated and we don't want to learn all about the gods, like in the History of India, another BBC blu-ray, very interesting, but much to heavy. Ganges is fluent, varied, complete and sufficiently simple for everyone to follow easily. Good buy at the price. Will certainly watch it again in the next couple of years.
