In "The Story of India", Michael Wood weaves a spellbinding narrative out of the 10,000-year history of the subcontinent.
Home today to more than a fifth of the world's population, India gave birth to the oldest and most influential civilization on Earth, to four world religions, and to the world's largest democracy.
Now, as India bids to become a global economic giant, Michael sets out on an epic journey across this vibrant country to trace the roots of India's present in the incredible riches of her past. "The Story of India" is a magical mixture of history and travelogue, and an unforgettable portrait of India - past, present and future.
