EPIC Channel launches a new weekly mini-series titled ‘Saamagri Aur Sampatti’ that will air 6th February onwards. The show is presented in a unique conversational format and employs animation to convey the interesting stories of how the trade of manycommodities shaped the world as we know it, and how India played a pivotal part in this process.
Along with gems like yoga, chess and the number zero; India, since ancient times, also served as a conduit for the global spread of many commodities that we use today. For instance, the history of zinc mining in India goes back centuries, as does the cultivation of sesame, the first seed from which oil was extracted.
EPIC has seen success with the animation format with its show ‘Kissa Currency Ka’, a mini- series that traced the journey of the ‘coins’ of the country and reflected the diverse cultures that inhabited the region. Continuing on the back of the encouraging response of the animated infotainment series, this new series will unfold over nine episodes and showcase the various commodities that found their way to the world through India; revealing the country’s legacy of trade and its global impact.
Speaking on the launch of the new show, Akul Tripathi, Content and Programming Head of EPIC Channel said, “Making content at EPIC is always fun and a great learning curve. This series is a great starting point to how India, through its trade shaped world commerce, politics, and even world history.”
Tune in to EPIC Channel for Saamagri Aur Sampatti, every Wednesday from 6th of February at 10 PM
