Relive the sunset of the British Empire with this glorious miniseries adaptation of Paul Scott's Raj Quartet, finally rereleased in a dazzling and definitive four-disc collection.

An Empire ends, lives continue.

An internationally acclaimed and Emmy® Award-winning series, THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN: 25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION weaves an epic and far-reaching narrative that captures the turbulence, passion, and drama of the waning years of British rule in India.

Brilliantly adapted from Paul Scott's The Raj Quartet, THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN portrays the human and cultural entanglements of the men and women struggling to adjust to the drastic changes brought by the end of the colonial regime.

From Gandhi's call on the British to "Quit India" to the birth of an independent nation, this magnificent eight-part series traces a historic turning-point with intricate storylines and a sterling British cast including Academy Award®-winning British actress Dame Peggy Ashcroft (A Passage to India) and Emmy® nominee Charles Dance (Alien).

Add this jewel to your DVD collection to lose yourself in the splendid period production and relive the stirring finale to the British Empire in India!
