BTV: Embracing India promo Watch the Embracing India documentary in full 9:30pm Tuesday July 28 on Fox Footy.

Essendon Football Club in conjunction with Travel and Taste and Antler Luggage is proud to announce the documentary #EmbracingIndia, will air on FOX Footy at 9.30pm Tuesday 28 July.

The documentary follows Dyson Heppell, David Zaharakis, Joe Daniher and Zach Merrett on their ten day journey of self discovery across colourful and chaotic India.

Among the highlights of the documentary was a special skills clinic on the India-Bangladesh border. The dream of playing for Essendon saw some budding stars travel more than ten hours to have a kick with their Bomber heroes.

However, the scenic drive home took a dramatic turn when the team bus was intercepted by the Indian military. The standoff had some of the players concerned they’d spend a night in an Indian jail.

#EmbracingIndia is a tale of contrasting cultures, of growing our game on the dusty fields of Delhi, of tigers and the Taj Mahal, and a new found appreciation of life at home in Australia.
