Joanna Lum­ley’s In­dia, ABC, Tues­day at 8.30pm

IN THIS three-part se­ries, Joanna Lum­ley (pic­tured) re­turns to the coun­try of her birth for a deeply per­sonal jour­ney through the vi­brant and unique coun­try of In­dia.

Joanna, best known for her role in the TV se­ries Ab­so­lutely Fab­u­lous, was born dur­ing the last days of the Raj and both sides of her fam­ily called In­dia home for sev­eral gen­er­a­tions.

In this se­ries she trav­els the length and breadth of the coun­try for an im­mer­sive and ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­plo­ration of its di­verse land­scapes, vary­ing cul­tural tra­di­tions and in­com­pa­ra­ble spirit.

Along the way she meets an eclec­tic mix of peo­ple and dis­cov­ers how in­de­pen­dence has shaped In­dia into a con­stantly evolv­ing and end­lessly fas­ci­nat­ing coun­try.

Joanna’s In­dian roots give her jour­ney an added layer of per­sonal con­nec­tion.
