A sumptuous series exploring how life around southern Asia both endures and depends on the tumultuous weather that annually transforms the land – the mighty monsoon. With original score composed by renowned UK musician Nitin Sawhne, Lands of the Monsoon will transport viewers to the breath-taking region.
The wildlife and cultures around southern Asia have been shaped by one of the greatest phenomena on earth: the monsoon winds that sweep across this vast region, turning drought into deluge. All life is dominated by this rampaging weather system.
From the northern shores of Australia to the highest peaks of the Himalayas, and from the wind-blown deserts of northern India, to the lush equatorial forests of Borneo, this series makes an exhilarating journey through the lands of the monsoon.
Along the way, it offers a taste of the variety and colour of the different regions' most extraordinary wildlife and cultures and the way they cope with the tumultuous weather.
This is the story of a relationship between humans and nature that has grown across thousands of years – all living in the shadow of the monsoon. But what does the future hold?
