The Making of ‘The Jewel in the Crown’’ provides 60 pages of fascinating information about the filming of the Granada Television series ‘The Jewel in the Crown’ along with colour photos o the cast and production crew on location in India, plus a further 62 pages on the history of the Raj with contemporary black and white photos of the momentous events that led up to the time of India’s Independence.

The plot and characters of Paul Scott’s Quartet were faithfully and dramatically presented in this film, with starring roles by Peggy Ashcroft, Charles Dance, Nicholas Farrell, Geraldine James and Saeed Jaffrey, amongst many others.

This is a book to treasure, not least because it represents the era when British television stations were able to produce sumptuous drama in exotic locations.
