Product Notes

February, 1942: India is in turmoil with the Japanese poised to invade, and Gandhi rallying his followers in the struggle to end British rule. A young London-educated Indian, Hari Kumar (Art Malik), suspected of being a subversive by the local British police superintendent Ronald Merrick (Tim Piggott-Smith), strikes up a romance with a shy young English girl, Daphne Manners (Susan Wooldridge). But their star-crossed affair leads to Merrick's persistent hatred for Kumar, and so the story begins. Filmed extensively in India, and taking place during the five years preceding India's independence from Britain, the Jewel in the Crown was hailed by critics as one of the most thoughtful and important TV dramas ever. This sweeping 14-part remastered adaptation of Paul Scott's 'Raj Quartet' is the story of the men and women of both ruling and ruled classes, trying amidst the turmoil to come to terms with the drastic changes taking place around them, knowing that their lives will never be the same again.
