The Story of India
FreedomStreaming Video - 2009
In this program, Michael Wood tells how a foreign multinational, Britain's East India Company, gradually and almost by chance took power over great swathes of the Indian subcontinent; how after the shock of the 1857 Sepoy Rebellion, the British state assumed total control over the country and transformed it into the Raj; and how the freedom movement, epitomized by Mahatma Gandhi, succeeded in delivering independence to India in 1947. The program ends by extolling the extraordinary achievements of Indian democracy over its six decades of life.
