Epic Channel to celebrate National Tourism Day with special line-up
MUMBAI: In tune with the spirit of National Tourism Day on 25th January, Hindi infotainment channel Epic Channel has planned an exclusive programming line-up.
The day-long programming will air on 25th January from 1 pm onwards and will feature six episodes from the popular show Ekaant, that explores abandoned monuments and cities of India that are fast fading from memory. The episodes will take the viewers to the mesmerising Hampi, and Ross Island (recently renamed Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Dweep), the magnificent Raigad Fort – home to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, and the 9-storey high Leh Palace, that stands testament to Ladakh’s proud history.
Also featuring in the line-up is Sanrachana, a show that discovers India’s architectural marvels and the science behind what makes them unique. The episodes in Sanrachna outline the Buland Darwaza in Fatehpur Sikri, Agra, the Charminar and Golconda Fort in Hyderabad, and the Gol Gumbaz of Bijapur, each of which are keepers of unique architectural innovations.
Adding variety to the line-up is Kahi Suni, where anchor Sara Khan explores the story of the separation of Krishna and Radha from modern-day Vrindavan; ‘Jewels Of The Sea’, a feature on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands presented by Tom Alter; ‘Hornbill Festival’ visits the cultural extravaganza of Nagaland, and Curry Pow, India’s first homegrown feature on the fast-growing skiing culture.
Commenting on the inspiration for the programming mix, Epic Channel Content and Programming Head Akul Tripathi said, “National Tourism Day is a great effort at focusing energy in showcasing India to tourists both domestic and international. At EPIC, we celebrate India every day, and we are glad to be a part of this movement that encourages travel and understanding of Incredible India.”
