TV Times - - Tuesday - doc­u­men­tary / 9.00pm / BBC2 ep

Part of the Bbc’s sea­son mark­ing the 70th an­niver­sary of Par­ti­tion, this doc­u­men­tary uses archive footage, first-hand tes­ti­mony and ex­pert opinion to de­tail the chaotic week lead­ing up to the mo­men­tous event. With the cre­ation of an in­de­pen­dent In­dia and Pak­istan, mil­lions of peo­ple were dis­placed, fam­i­lies were split and refugees fled all over the world. This pow­er­ful film tells some of their sto­ries.
