‘Cityscapes’ is a six part series on six cities of India representing the diverse nature and histories of cities in India. ‘Delhi’ signposts events of historical significance that influenced the development of Delhi and attempts to trace its transition from the medieval kingdoms to the seat of power of the British Empire to its present day status as the capital of India. Delhi was important in the history of India as a series of rulers used the city to build their capitals on. The film looks at some of these and explores the last three in detail: the Mughal empire that ended with Bahadur Shah Zafar, the British Empire, and the present day republic of India. Lifestyles, architecture and culture of the three very distinct times are explored by using re-enactments, reconstructed visuals, archival footage, interviews and real-life footage.
