NEW DELHI: International news channel BBC World will telecast a new six-part series, Indian Journeys, from Tuesday, 20 August, 2002 at 10:00 pm, with additional appointments to view on Saturdays at 10:00 pm and Sundays at 12 Noon.

The series embarks on an exploratory journey across the spiritual heartland of India with renowned author William Dalrymple as he delves deep into the Indian spiritual psyche and explores what lies at its core - within the rich tapestry of Hinduism, Islam and Christianity, according to a BBC press release.

The first two episodes, titled Shiva's Matted Locks, follow William as he traces the source of the sacred river Ganges, a journey that takes him 15,000 ft into the high Himalayas near the Tibetan border. In the next two episodes titled City of Djinns, William visits Delhi to explore the strong interconnections between Islam and Hinduism that are manifest to this day in the form of age old rituals, monuments and customs. In the final two episodes, William goes to the South Indian states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, which are traditionally said to have close linkages with the Apostle of Jesus commonly known as Doubting Thomas.

An inspiring kaleidoscope of Indian images, religions and regions, Indian Journeys won the Grierson Award for Best Documentary Series at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in 2002. The programme captures the colour and the essence of Indian spiritualism through the eyes of a celebrated travel writer in search of its holy origins. The series showcases India's connections with spirituality and offers the viewer a rich and enthralling experience with a unique perspective.
