David Attenborough’s epic film biography of Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) presents a sweeping, masterful image of the life of India’s great pioneer of independence and 20th-century non-violent civil disobedience. In this programme we hear among others from director Richard Attenborough and the actor who played Gandhi, Ben Kingsley, who were awarded two of the many Oscars given to this film.
