Documentary on the life of Gandhi

Highly recommended
This long (5 hours, 10 minutes) video documents the life of Mahatma Gandhi, in great detail.

The doco is fascinating and shows the influences on his life from his family, many religious sources and people such as Tolstoy and Thoreau. His early struggles in South Africa, and his development of satyagraha and the principles of civil disobedience are thoroughly portrayed in as much as I have watched, which has been the first hour or two so far.
