DFID in India: Smile for the Camera

Eshwarappa M and Richard Whittell's series looking at the role of the British Government's Department for International Development (DFID) in India continues with a film and two interviews assessing the impact of British aid money on rural communities and agriculture in the central state of Madhya Pradesh. The film compares the DFID's publicity with the opinions of people directly affected by it. The interviews - with Bijay Pandey, a representative of a people's movement, and Sachin Kumar Jain, a journalist - give an in depth insight into the type of development the DFID is encouraging.
