Story of India  "Ages of Gold"  The fourth episode is the story of India in the Middle Ages. At the time of the fall of the Roman Empire and the European Dark Ages, India experienced a series of great flowerings of culture, both in the north and the south. In this episode, Michael Wood shows viewers some of the amazing achievements of medieval India: In astronomy, Indians discovered the heliocentric universe, absolute zero and the circumference of the earth; they mastered the world's first large-scale wrought iron technology -- the Delhi iron pillar; and their courtly culture was the setting of the world's first sex manual, the Kama Sutra. D

6:00 pm 
Story of India  "The Meeting of Two Oceans"  The fifth episode takes viewers to the time of the Renaissance in Europe, when India was the richest, most populous civilization in the world. Michael Wood visits the desert cities of Rajasthan and travels among the fabulous Moghul cities of Delhi, Agra and Fatepur Sikri. At the Taj Mahal -- just voted one of the new Seven Wonders of the World by 100 million voters worldwide -- Wood demolishes an old myth about the Taj and offers a new theory about its construction. D

7:00 pm 
Story of India  "Freedom"  The final episode relates how a foreign multinational (the East India Company) thousands of miles away gradually and almost by chance took power over great swaths of the Indian subcontinent; how, after the horrendous shock of the 1857 "Mutiny," the British state took over and turned this supremacy into the Raj, the jewel in the crown of the greatest empire the world had ever seen; and how the Freedom Movement delivered independence to India in 1947, albeit a divided India. The series ends by acknowledging the extraordinary achievements of Indian democracy over 60 years, and flags India's predicted rise to be the largest country and the second-largest (or even the largest) economy in the world in the next three decades. This epic journey "over 10, 000 years and 10,000 miles," as Wood puts it, ends overlooking the seven ancient cities of Delhi. D
