Television has witnessed countless shows that have captured the hearts and minds of viewers over the decades. While shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), Bigg Boss and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah have become household names, there is one show that stands as a quiet champion of longevity and it is not an entertainment show. This agricultural program has graced the screens for an astonishing 56 years, making it a true testament to the enduring power of content that resonates with audiences.
The world’s first longest running television show and India’s longest running television show
Before we talk about the longest running show in India, let us know about the longest running show in the world. The longest-running show in the world is a German animated series called Sandmännchen (The Sandman), which has aired 22,000 episodes to date. And our biggest Indian show that has aired its 16,000 episodes is Krishi Darshan. Krishi Darshan, based on Agricultural Vision, originally aired on Doordarshan, India’s national television network, in the early 1960s.

The show was conceived with a noble purpose: to educate and empower farmers with the latest techniques, best practices and scientific advances in agriculture. With an emphasis on rural development, the show aimed to uplift the agrarian community by imparting essential knowledge that could increase yields, improve livelihoods and contribute to the overall growth of the agricultural sector.
