KUMBH MELA: The Greatest Show On Earth.

Kumbh Melas, in accordance with astrological cycles, take place every twelve years, but the Kumbh Mela 2001 has a special significance as it falls at a particularly auspicious alignment of the planets, occurring only once every 144 years. Hindus believe that this alignment radiates cosmic energy and transforms the waters of the Ganges into immortality-inducing nectar that first fell to Earth at the time of creation, according to Hindu Mythology. Millions of Hindu pilgrims arrive to bathe in the Ganges and celebrate their faith.

Broadcast by Channel 4 thruout January 2001, every day. Events that happened that day were edited on the site in Allahabad, India, uplinked to Channel 4 in London and broadcast after the Channel 4 evening news.
