'The Ganges is the river of India. It rises in an ice cave in the Himalayas, held sacred by the Hindus. It is like being born in a monastery. It dies in the Indian Ocean, after a journey of 1,540 miles. Over the years it has become not only a river but a way of life.'
Film-maker Yavar Abbas returns after years in the West to the country of his birth, and follows the Ganges from its source to the sea.

Yavar Abbas

with the voices of Ray Barrett as Narrator and Robin Ramsey as Percy Grainger

Nothing of the sounds, nothing of the happenings of life should be forgotten. Of all bad habits the worst, to me, is to let resplendent things fade away.
This film biography has drawn on the vast collection of material Grainger made relating to his life: it is a second showing of this detailed study of an unusual composer-pianist. As a child in Melbourne, Percy Grainger (1882-1961) imagined a new musical sound which would be 'as free as the waves on the shore.' But his talent as a pianist prevented him from developing this 'free music' until he was in his 60s.
