Yesterday's sit-and-be-quiet viewing included the last two of fourteen excellent episodes of The Jewel In The Crown (1984, PBS), about India becoming independent of England in the 1940s. Interspersed in the story were film clips from that time, adding verite. Deb and I had watched the series at her apartment when it first came out. She made a chicken curry to die for (my mouth waters even now) to make it a real Indian experience. Just as with a good book, I hated to see the story end.
