Dull Passage Through India

Whilst channel hopping last night I happened across BBC4’s programme, Caroline Quentin: A Passage Through India.  It was the dullest and most patronising narrative that could have been written at the height of the Raj.

There are elephants in India!  And it’s so sad that the next generation of tea pickers don’t want to work for Rs200 per day (£2.32 approx) and that they will find work in the city.  If the BBC are going to waste licence fee money like this might we at least ask for a new perspective on a country?

  1. What a shame. Do Britain and maybe the BBC still see India as their Empire?
