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 (1923-2014) and the actor who played Gandhi, Ben Kingsley, who won two of the many Oscars awarded to this movie.
