India's Electric Dreams

Channel 4: Unreported World

Krishnan Guru-Murthy examines the Indian government's drive to provide electricity for every village in the country, and how it will affect the country's environment.

Krishnan Guru-Murthy and director Hugo Ward investigate how the government's drive to help the country's development through widespread electrification is pitting villagers who want the benefits of electricity against campaigners who fear the environmental impact of vast open-cast coal mines on the forests that provide a livelihood for tribal communities.
