BFI opens India archive ahead of independence anniversary

The British Film Institute has put its Indian archive online for the first time to coincide with the upcoming 70th anniversary of Indian independence.

It charts the relationship between two countries and shows the way of life of Indians in Britain since the dawn of the age of film.

The newly digitised footage includes the visit in 1931 of Mahatma Gandhi in Britain for talks on Indian self government.
