This October, Epic Channel is bringing three shows, including gripping travel stories, in ‘The Road Less Travelled’; a story of India told by Sadhguru in ‘Bharat - Rhythm of a Nation with Sadhguru’ and a look into the life, times and careers of some of India’s most talented in ‘The Creative Indians’.
As an exception, and incremental to its pioneering offering as India’s only Hindi language infotainment channel, these shows will be offered in English.
Akul Tripathi, Content and Programming head, Epic Channel said, “Epic’s vision is to be a platform for the best infotainment of, for, and by India. We endeavour to showcase India in all its diversity, and believe that like its people its stories come in several languages. With one of the biggest English language speaking populations in the world, dispersed across the country, it would be a disservice to the vision, if we were to abandon great stories on basis of language. And some stories are best told in the language they were made in. We are carefully selecting such stories that we will present through an English slot Monday-Wednesday at 10:30 pm and are confident that the freshness it brings will add value, perspective, and be a compelling incremental proposition to the Epic library.”
‘The Road Less Travelled’ adheres to a seasoned traveller’s ethic of spontaneity and willingness. Godzilla fame Globetrotter Jonathan Legg travels across India in search of exotic locations and unusual experiences, in search of moments not found in the conventional and rutted route, and often experience the bizarre side of a destination. From exploring unexplored paths in Mumbai, Kolkata, Orissa, as well as the Himalayas, the host dives right into the heart of a seemingly crazy, yet fascinating country. The show will air October 1.
‘Bharat- Rhythm of a Nation with Sadhguru’ explores the story of India, from history to an understanding of culture, and identity. In this specially curated series of talks, spiritual thinker Sadhguru explains what makes India, India. He discusses the essence, the spirit of Bharat — the religious, social, economic and spiritual core of the country and how they affect and impact every single person living in the country. He covers myriad subjects, from rivers as lifelines, to the racial and ethnic identities that make up the population of the country.
‘The Creative Indians’ is intent, and introduces, showcases, and attempts to decipher the finest minds in India in the fields of performing, literary and liberal arts. From depicting, and analysing the creative process of an artist, the show captures an artists’ characteristic approach to his art form and the skill that defines his craft. The show features documentaries on A.R. Rahman, Anurag Kashyap, Anita Dongre, Adhuna and Avan Contractor, among others. The 10-episode series will release on October 3.
