Ravi Shankar On BBC 4

BBC 4 will repeat a documentary about Ravi Shankar, the great sitar player who passed away last December. Ravi Shankar- Between Two Worlds follows the musician over two years in India. It also shows archive footage of him performing across the seven decades of his careers.

The documentary is followed by A Concert For Bangladesh Revisited. This tells the story of a concert that was held at Madison Square Garden in New York in 1971 to raise money for refugees. It was organised by Ravi Shankar and his pupil the Beetle member George Harrison.

Ravi Shankar - Between Two Worlds airs tomorrow at 10pm on BBC 4. A Concert For Bangladesh Revisited starts at 11pm.
