Joanna Lumley’s India

Series 13 × 60"2017

Joanna Lumley travels back to the country of her birth to celebrate the great nation that it is today. A year older than independent India itself, Joanna was born in India into the last days of the Raj and the country was home to both sides of her family for several generations.

Joanna travels the length and breadth of India, beginning her epic journey in Tamil Nadu on the tip of the continent and working her way up to the north. She travels over 5,000 miles, exploring its diverse landscapes, different cultural traditions, and extraordinary spirit, discovering how independence has changed and shaped it into the great evolving country it is today. Meeting a huge range of people, Joanna experiences the mind-blowing mix of industry, ingenuity, imagination and humanity that India, the world’s largest democracy, has to offer.
