The Jewel in the Crown is the internationally acclaimed series that captures the turbulence, the passion and the drama of the waning years of British rule in India. This exquisite human epic received an Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series; a Golden Globe for Best Mini-Series; and a British Academy of Film and Television Award for Best Drama Series. This brilliantly interwoven saga tells the story of men and women struggling to adjust to the drastic changes brought about by the end of British colonial rule - a struggle of class and race.

Adapted from Paul Scott's literary masterpiece "The Raj Quartet", The Jewel in the Crown was filmed extensively throughout India, England and Wales.
