Ex­plor­ing In­dia’s car in­dus­try

TONIGHT

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - TV CHOICE -

IN­DIA isn’t what it used to be, it’s true. The coun­try has long since shed all the neg­a­tive con­no­ta­tions once associated with it. In­stead, in its place is a fas­ci­nat­ing cul­ture and one of the fastest grow­ing economies on Earth. One of the mas­sive con­trib­u­tors to that is the boom­ing car in­dus­try. The One Show’s Anita Rani trav­els west from Delhi to Chen­nai to meet the busi­ness­men and celebri­ties who have come to epit­o­mise this new ver­sion of In­dia. But she’s do­ing it in style, trav­el­ling about in a brand new In­dian-built four-by-four. Anita soon learns that there’s a down­side to In­dia’s growth, how­ever, when she stum­bles across wide­spread corruption. Mean­while, News­night and The One Show’s Justin Rowlatt sees an al­to­gether dif­fer­ent pic­ture, as he heads east to Chen­nai in a Hin­dus­tan Am­bas­sador, a ve­hi­cle that typ­i­fies the nation’s past.
