[edit] Extra1of2 Timewatch The Forgotten Volunteers

This programme investigates the fate of the two-and-a-half million Indians who fought for Britain during the Second World War. It looks at how they were forgotten by Britain, and disowned by India after the war and faced racism and prejudice.

[edit] Extra2of2 Burma The Forgotten War

Valiant efforts by British and Empire troops, mainly Indian, left a country that soon gained independence and with it, military dictatorship. The Allied victory (because there was some U.S. involvement) was, whatever the ultimate fate of Burma, 'a truly great feat of arms'. In his giant canvas of battles and Japanese atrocities, of Kohima and the infamous Burma-Thailand railway, Mr Latimer never loses track of individual soldiers and civilians. This not only gives a very human touch to his story of ultimate victory wrenched form initial disaster but provides a structure that holds the vast story together.
