Gandhi: His Life And Legacy (3×60′) – a definitive and in-depth series about the political and spiritual leader who led the fight for Indian independence. Presented by BBC journalist Mishal Husain, whose grandparents moved from India to what became Pakistan during the partition. Mishal seeks to look beyond the image presented in Richard Attenborough’s 1982 biopic, examining Gandhi’s real life. Mishal charts Gandhi’s establishment beginnings in London, his move into politics in South Africa and his non-violent campaigns in India. The dramatic story of his life is interwoven with the remarkable story of his legacy. A year before his death, Gandhi complained that everyone wanted to take his photograph rather than discuss his policies and asked “who listens to me today?” Gandhi – His Life And Legacy will attempt to answer that question.
