Leslee Udwin talks about her documentary India's Daughter. Leslee is the director and producer of the ground breaking documentary India's Daughter. The film told the story of the brutal gang rape in 2012 of a 23 year old medical student on a Delhi bus. The student later died from her injuries. India's Daughter made international headlines and ignited protests. It is an impassioned plea for change and a tribute to a remarkable and inspiring young woman. In 1986, Leslee faced a life- and home-threatening experience at the hands of one of Britain's most notorious criminal landlords. After fighting a long and hard battle against him, and winning, she set about getting the story made as a TV film. The resultant TV film (BBC Screen Two) - Sitting Targets - had considerable impact as a piece of campaigning television. 5x15 brings together five outstanding individuals to tell of their lives, passions and inspirations.
