Not great, but historical interest

"This documentary includes a decent background of the India Gandhi was living in. The historical footage is interesting but repetitive, the key events in his life are simply described in chronological order, the narration is not compelling, the background music wanders between kitsch sitar tunes and inappropriately modern score. Everything about this program looks like they did it on the cheap, but the story is so compelling that you'll probably watch it once if you've seen the Ben Kingsley version. You do get a better picture of how India was part of the British Empire, and how difficult it was for them to break free."
