Gandhi - the most talked about British film of the year if not of the decade. Jenny Barraclough was given unique access to the location shooting in India; she recorded the behind the scenes effort that went into some of the most ambitious scenes ever filmed for the cinema. Richard Attenborough himself, Ben Kingsley who plays Gandhi, as well as John Mills, Candice Bergen, Martin Sheen and Geraldine James all contribute. Interwoven with rarely seen archival footage of Gandhi this is a record of an extraordinary saga of film making.
