OUR MAN IN INDIA

Cecil Beaton is most famous for his photographs of glamorous people such as Greta Garbo, and his costume and set designs for the film My Fair Lady.

This exhibition at the National Archives, Kew, Surrey reveals a little-known side of his work. In 1944, the Ministry of Information sent him to India to photograph day-to-day life and add glamour to its propaganda campaign about the war in south-east Asia.

Original correspondence, documents and propaganda posters are included.

Free admission. An accompanying lecture, "Images of India", will be given on February 19 at 7.30pm.

Tickets: pound;4-pound;5. Tel: 020 8392 52025323Email: events@national archives.gov.uk; www.national archives.gov.uk
