26-part series on ‘Forts of India' commissioned by DD being aired every Sunday at 8.20 p.m.
Fort series to be screened at the SJM as part of the heritage week celebrations from November 19
Hyderabad: Now you can enjoy the colossal ruins of the Golconda fort from the comfort of your home.
Take a leisurely look at the huge gateways, the rugged bastions, Bala Hisar, the highest point of the fort and the final abode of the Qutb Shahi rulers.
A documentary film on the Qutb Shahi citadel made by the Doordarshan brings the historical facts and architectural details in a telling fashion.
This is one of the episodes of the 26-part series on ‘Forts of India' commissioned by Doordarshan.
Beginning November 14, the documentary films will be telecast by Doordarshan on every Sunday at 8.20 p.m.
Produced by G.S. Chani, the short films portray the history and culture of India. They give a succinct account of the important forts of India.
On Saturday, the documentary on Golconda fort was screened at the Salar Jung Museum in association with INTACH.
The 26-minute documentary is a visual delight. It presents the fortified city of grand palaces, mosques and gardens in great detail.
Viewers are also treated to miniature paintings, Kuchipudi dance and Burrakatha art forms patronised by the Qutb Shahi kings. The love story of Quli Qutb Shah and Bhagmati also finds a mention.
“It is a visual document for generations to come. It will also go a long way in protecting our heritage”, said Anuradha Reddy, INTACH member.
Nagender Reddy, director, Salar Jung Museum, said the fort series would be screened at the SJM as part of the heritage week celebrations being held from November 19.
