When Britain ruled India

Anne Wright grew up during the dying days of British rule in India

British rule of India ended in 1947 after nearly 100 years.

Until that moment, a small number of Britons administered large swathes of the country and led a privileged life.

Anne Wright was the daughter of a senior official in the Indian Civil Service and grew up during the dying days of British rule.

Witness is a World Service radio programme of the stories of our times told by the people who were there.
