Adapted from Paul Scott's "Raj Quartet," this emotionally stirring miniseries depicts the final decades of British rule in India─as seen in part through the eyes of Hari Kumar (Art Malik), an English-educated Indian working as a journalist. While his upper-class background and color of his skin mark him for prejudicial treatment, he embarks on a dangerous love affair with British nurse (Susan Wooldridge). Peggy Ashcroft, Geraldine James, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Charles Dance co-star. 12 hrs. on five discs. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; audio commentary by Malik, others; original "Masterpiece Theatre" introductions by Alistair Cooke.
