The Paradise Flycatcher and other birds of the sub-Himalayan Shivalik range in India during the monsoon

A first-time-ever intimate look into the life of the Paradise Flycatcher, certainly the most beautiful and one of the more widely-distributed birds of the Indian subcontinent. We decided to use the Paradise Flycatcher as the main element and then focus in on the unique bird and animal life of this micro bio-zoo-geographic zone that has never been filmed in isolation before. Sandwiched as it is between two strong personalities – that of the brash, young and altitudinally-impressive Himalaya and the dusty-summery plains of northern India – we decided to pull out the old mountain range of the Shivaliks from its retirement in geography and geology text-books! The glorious Paradise Flycatchers of the Himalayan foothills were filmed using a combination of a Digi Beta camcorder and long lenses, from hides, as well as from several twenty feet and higher tree-mounted Flycam cameras that were placed relatively close to the nests, without disturbing the birds. The Paradise Flycatchers have been filmed here for the first time in such intimate detail, along with all the other exciting denizens of their sylvan sub-Himalayan world, including the rare Pied Hornbill, the cliff-dwelling Goral and the Orange-headed Ground Thrush.

A full day, from sunrise to the next sunrise, in the wilderness of India

This innovative program 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. 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!

India Himalaya – Spectacular Visuals from the Nandadevi Sanctuary

Nanda Devi has always been considered the ultimate Himalayan peak by climbers from around the world. The region has been shut-off from the rest of the world for over twenty years now. …??The history of Nanda Devi dates back to 1936 when Tilman and Odell first climbed the peak; their ascent was billed as "the most outstanding mountaineering success of the pre-Second World War era". John Roskelly's book entitled 'Nanda Devi' centered around the sad expedition during which Nanda Devi Unsoeld (the daughter of Willi Unsoeld, the famous mountaineer), died while climbing the peak after which she was named.??Then there was the 1970's controversy where the CIA apparently placed a nuclear-powered tracking device atop the peak, to monitor activity in China / Chinese / China's Lop Nor nuclear project, and the subsequent disappearance of the same. This sparked off many rumours internationally, with many interpretations of the cause of its disappearance…? Go to the hidden Nanda Devi Sanctuary in the Western Himalayas of India. Images also include Himalayan flowers like Rhododendron campanulatum, Primula macrophylla var. moorcroftiana and Praquilegia microphylla / grandiflora, horns of the Hiamalyan Blue Sheep / Bharal, a herd of sheep, Nanda Devi Mountain, Mountain Hard Wear / Mountain Hardwear tents etc.
