  • 1. The Devil’s Wind Produced by Phillip Geddes (Former BBC Producer and Writer) Storming of Kashmir Gate Delhi, on 14th September 1857. THE DEVILS’S WIND The first and largest ever revolt by a colonial population against British Imperial rule took place in India in 1857. The Rising, whether you call it the Sepoy Mutiny or the First war of Independence brought the British Colonial rule in India to a near collapse. This film traces the experience of two families – those of Phillip Geddes (A former BBC Producer and Writer) and Lieutenant General Sir Richard Shirreff, both of whose ancestors served and died during the events of 1857. During a trip to India in the summer of 2007, the two families tracked down using historical records –the places and circumstances of their deaths- and filmed all the key sites of the 1857 campaign (including many never seen before). The result is a dramatic and exciting account of a tumultuous event in the history of both Britain and India. History truly comes alive………. Includes detailed interviews with Author William Dalrymple on causes of the Rising and on battle tactics and strategies by Lieutenant General Sir Richard Shirreff KCB, CBE, Commander Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (NATO Forces, Europe)
