Indus Documentary

I use Indus: The Unvoiced Civilization, by the Films for Humanities and Social Sciences.

This documentary shows actual excavated sites, recreated animated cities, interviews with Archaeological Survey of India Director, Dr. Bisht, expert on Indus script Dr. Asko Parpola, and others. An excellent documentary.

I also use slide shows from harappa.com, maintained by Prof. Kenoyer.

Lavanya Vemsani:

Thank you John. It is a great paper with a complete overview of what is going on about the Indus language and script. However, Indus language and script are becoming something like the Aryan controversy, A polarizing subject. Or we can say the next Aryan controversy of Indian History. Hard to decide anything with so little evidence and no way to read the script, I think. 


John McIntosh: Thanks, Lavanya. That's very helpful. I thought there was considerable controversy surrounding the Indus script been deciphered. Your thoughts on Michael Witzel and Steve Farmer's perspective in the Frontline? http://www.academicroom.com/article/horseplay-harappa-indus-valley-dicipherment-hoax

Do any documentaries exist on the Indus Valley Civilization

Can someone recommend a good documentary on the Indus Valley civilization?  I found this one video that talks about basic issues but does not go into details.
