  Midnight's Children Friday 21 February 2003  
This weekend an RSC adaptation of Salman Rushdie's Midnight Children goes on a nationwide tour.

Nineteen British Asian actors have brought to life this kaleidoscope of a novel which portrays the independence of India from Britain and it's partition.
We hear from Sita Brahmachari, the educational director, about how and why she put together, Maps At Midnight, the accompanying exhibition where she has recorded a collection of intergenerational voices who were affected by the trauma of partition.
