Summary
Famed for its wealth, cultural treasures, and spiritual traditions, India has for centuries beckoned the outsider. Many nations have vied for control of this fabled and colorful land-with two great empires, one established by invading Moghuls, the other by the British, flourishing in turns on the vast subcontinent. Viewers of this program learn how, in the 16th century, the Turkic warlord Babur led his forces out of Central Asia and founded a dynasty in India-which persisted until a new colonial power arrived to stake its own claims. Enter Robert Clive, a psychologically disturbed British officer who delivered 18th-century India into the hands of the Crown.
