The Ganges with Sue Perkins

Having left the Bake Off tent, comedian and presenter Sue Perkins sets out to explore The Ganges on an epic journey, spanning over 1,500 miles along the river from its source in the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal.

Tonight she starts at the source meeting those that call the sacred place home. Moving further on she travels through Rishikesh – a town that has long been the gateway to the land of the gods – before arriving at the holy city of Haridwar, where the Ganges finally leaves the mountains and flows into the plains.
