Jewel in The Crown, based on Paul Scott’s Raj Quartet novels, is a dramatic series first broadcast in 1984. This epic recounts the final days of the British Raj in India during World War II.

The uneasy years of English colonialism have led to rioting and violence, heralding new independence. People in both ruling and ruled classes are trying, amidst the turmoil, to come to terms with the drastic changes taking place around them. Their lives will never be the same again.

Jewel in The Crown has won 23 major awards including an Emmy and five BAFTAs.
