Synopsis

Discover India's rich history while simultaneously learning why the country is poised to become one of the world's next superpowers in this documentary hosted by Michael Wood. A country known as well for its proficiency in computer technology as its many gods, India is the world's oldest civilization. India has experienced many golden ages over the course of human history, and its leaders have strived to encourage great change on a global scale. But while the glories of Greece, Rome, and Egypt have all been explored in the realm of documentary film, India has been all but forgotten - until now. Many don't realize that the decimal system - the basis of all contemporary mathematics, science, and economics - was invented in India, with a rich history of music, dance, and literature making the country a cultural epicenter for the arts as well. Now, as globalization becomes an increased focus for countries around the world, the country that is simultaneously hi-tech and wondrously archaic moved with remarkable speed and grace into the 21st Century. A six-part series produced for PBS, The Story of India tells the story of an ancient land perfectly equipped to succeed in the modern world. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
