Wild India 24 hours: This innovative programme concept allows us to explore a less straitjacketed and more free-wheeling approach to the documentary form, lending it a new realism and imparting to it a life of its own. Condensing time and space, biodiversity and geography, spirit and form, all into one medium and in one space, we cover the entire Indian subcontinent in one sweeping montage, from Pakistan to Myanmar, and from Kashmir in the north to Kanyakumari and the Indian Ocean to the south. Everything is happening in one 24 hour sunrise-sunset-sunrise period on a winter day in December 2003, and yet there is a sense of timelessness about this fantastic journey through the heart of Wilderness India. This was shot using a variety of techniques and cameras. Most of the filming was done on Digi Beta camcorders, the aerials were recorded on DVCAM using a Flycam, and several crews worked extensively and travelled far afield to record the extremities of the Indian subcontinent. Culled from an exciting mass of footage! A few of the species filmed have been recorded for the first time ever. Definitely a first-ever attempt on such a scale, and in such a tricky geographic sweep of terrain! A day in the life of the Indian Wilderness. From first light over the Eastern Himalaya to day break over the Western peaks. The sun illuminates first the high mountains and then the Misty plains of India.
