Tying in with the 60th anniversary of India's independence, BBC Audiobooks is publishing a compilation of Mark Tully's acclaimed reports from India which includes his specially recorded observations...

Sir Mark Tully was the BBC's Foreign Correspondent in India from 1972 to 1994. He has become familiar to listeners around the world for his incisive and thought-provoking reports. On this special recording, he looks back at his career that coincided with a remarkable period in Indian history.

As well as the assassination of two Indian Prime Ministers - Indira Gandhi and her son Rajiv - Mark Tully reported the storming of the Sikh Golden Temple, the horrific aftermath of the Bhopal gas disaster, and the conflict between the Hindus and Muslims after the demolition of a mosque at Ayodhya.

Written and presented by Mark Tully, this is a remarkable insight into a country that is home to more than a fifth of the world's population - and the world's largest democracy - and which gave birth to four world religions.

As an insight into one man's experiences in India this is a fantastically produced series - even if Tully's delivery can be a little dry on occasions. The finished product is an entertaining collection of tales that will be of great interest to the general populace - even if the title makes it sound as though Tully owns India.
