Indian Summers DVD


Epic colonial drama starring two-time BAFTA winner Julie Walters. Set in the foothills of the Himalayas, the 10-part saga tells the story of the decline of the British Empire and the birth of modern India, from both sides of the experience. The story is set in Shimla, where during the hottest months of the year a growing community of British elite are posted to govern. Cynthia Coffin, widower and hub for gossip among the Brits, prepares the exclusive British Royal Club for their arrival. In the summer of 1932, India is steaming with tension as locals call for independence... but powerful Brits continue as if nothing has changed. The fate of the two sides becomes progressively tangled as the tale of love, betrayal and independence unfolds. [show more]

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.  The year is 1932, the place is India, and the people are romanticised, politicised and radicalised. They are drawn together and driven apart by class, race, love and theft, and the world around them is changing. In the small British colony of Simla, placed at the foothills of the Himalayas, the beliefs of the British Empire still remain but the young are hungry for freedom. Indian Summers tells a sweeping saga, stories of love, secrets, promises made and broken, and tensions that simmer in the hot, feverish days and nights of India - an India populated by freedom fighters, star-crossed lovers, political spies, artists, orphans, expats, the rich and the poor.

All ten episodes from the first series of the Channel 4 drama starring Julie Walters, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Nikesh Patel. In the small British colony of Simla at the foot of the Himalayas, the year 1932 sees the beliefs of the British Empire fade into obscurity and more modern ways of thinking brought into action. The supporting cast includes Olivia Grant, Ash Nair and Lisa Kay.
