Icon Films’ Mighty Rivers: The Ganges has been nominated across two categories at the Jackson Wild Media Awards. The episode – alongside host Jeremy Wade, also known for River Monsters and Dark Waters – has been recognised in the Best Host/Presenter-Led Film and Ecosystem categories.

In Mighty Rivers: Ganges, recent reports suggest that the Ganges, the world’s most revered river, is in trouble. Travelling to India, Jeremy’s investigation takes him from crab-hunters in the delta, to the heavily polluted middle river, and finally into the mountains in search of a rare predator.

We are delighted that Jeremy Wade has been recognised for his efforts in shedding new light on the unique Ganges river in Mighty Rivers. It’s a pleasure to have a talent like Jeremy with us at Icon Films; his recognition in this category among high caliber hosts like Dame Judi Dench and Bonné de Bod illuminates the charisma and excitement he brings to every programme he works on.
