Is Indian Summers wide screen or full screen ?
Review by Lorette B. review stating Is Indian Summers wide screen or full screen ?
I am ordering Indian Summers which is on back-order. How do I know if this is a full screen or a wide screen version? I believe it is only fair that this will be mentioned in the catalog, instead of customers purchasing a cat in the bag, dont you think. I appreciate you informing me which of the above it is so that I may change my mind if it is not a full screen version it is. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Lorette F Blogg

Captivating historic drama and suspense series
Review by Jamn review stating Captivating historic drama and suspense series
Wound up watching this each week on all 3 PBS stations! I was fascinated by its historic content and the interwoven character development. It inspired me to acquire a few books on life during the Raj period to find out more about the challenges and conflicts amongst the Brits and the diverse population of India. Having seen the Jewel and the Crown twice, I believe Indian Summers presents more about the Indian views on colonization and Gandhis work toward a free and united India (a daunting challenge!).

A great introduction to the history of India at the turn of the 20th century, set in a series with characters to bring it to life.
