The Indus Valley (The Masters of the River): Documentary

Here's an interesting documentary about the Indus River civilization made by NHK (Japan) and Canadian TV. It does not focus on the twin cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro but on a lesser known site called Dholavira near Gujarat in western India.

"With the help of CGI animation" writes one reviewer, "the documentary reconstructs the ruined city and shows how the civilisation was able to grow to a formidable size by its innovative harnessing of a now vanished river system."

I saw this on the The Indus Valley Open Online University, which is a little like Pinterest.
