Treasure Seekers: Empires of India

Genre: Documentary
Director(s): Graham Townsley

a warlord was growing

and with it the perception that

he might be a future ruler after all.

Lured by the promise of

conquest and booty,

warriors of other dynasties began to

join him.

In 1504, Babur's fortunes took a

decisive turn for the better.

He caught wind of tumult in the

Afghan kingdom of Kabul to the south.

Here, he thought, was a chance.

At the age of 21,

Babur rode out of the mountains

with his small band of men

and raced toward Kabul.

Warriors joined him as he approached

and they swept into the city.

The battle for Kabul was short

and Babur triumphed.

As he settled into his new home,

rivers of its fresh upland plateaus.

Kabul signified a new beginning,

an end to the years of wandering

but not, of course,

an end to his dreams of empire.

Not far to the south lay the vast,

teeming land of Hindustan, India.

He had heard many stories

of its wealth.

He realized it was now within

his grasp.

From the time I took Kabul,

I set my heart on Hindustan.

In 1504, the Indian sub continent

Was a disunited mass of

independent kingdoms and sultanates

Hindu in the south,

largely Moslem in the north.

One of the largest and most powerful

of these was Hindustan,

controlled by the sultanate

of Delhi.

Babur knew he stood no chance

of directly confronting

the armies of Hindustan.

But having taken Kabul, he lost no

time in making an exploratory raid

into the plains of northern India

just to see.

With a small army he moved

south in 1505.

He was amazed by what he found.

I had never experienced such heat

or anything like Hindustan before

different plants, different trees,

different animals and birds,

different tribes and people,
