India on Film

Mondays at 8:30pm AEDT from January 13

Narrated by Bollywood actor Rahul Bose, India on Film offers a unique glimpse into the life of early 20th century colonial India. From vast processions of elephants carrying India’s Maharajas, to King George V’s symbolic visit, to scenes from Gandhi’s early fight for independence, witness pivotal moments in India’s history come to life. Featuring previously unseen footage from the BFI national archive, including the oldest clips of India caught on camera, this collection of beautifully preserved films provides an astonishing window into a vanished world.
