JOANNA LUMLEYS INDIA 
Wednesday12th July 2017 on ITV 

Pictured : Joanna Lumley stands in front of The Gateway of India  a monument built during the 20th century in Mumbai City

Joanna Lumley travels back to the country of her birth to celebrate the great nation that it is today. A year older than Independent India itself, Joanna was born in India into the last days of The Raj and India was home to both sides of her family for several generations. 

Joanna travels the length and breadth of India, beginning her epic journey in Tamil Nadu - on the tip of the continent - and working her way up to the north. 

In this episode, Joanna witnesses religious ceremonies in glorious temples; learns how scientists are enabling people in tea plantations to live alongside wild elephants and with the help of computers is turned into a multi-limbed indian goddess.  In Kolkata Joanna takes to the streets at night with a local guide and meets some members of IndiaÕs transgender community. Finally Joanna journeys high into the HimalayaÕs to visit Gangtok in Sikkim where her mother lived as a child, and so holds a strong family connection for Joanna.
