Liverpool music from the post war years to the present day. Liverpool is one of the most vibrant cities in the world. The film puts into context the musical outpourings of nearly 60 years of world conquering music and the hundreds of bands who have contributed to a musical scene that produced the world\'s greatest band - The Beatles. What might not always be understood is that in that golden period of 1956 - 1964, Liverpool played host to over 1000 bands and hundreds of venues. It was the home of the UK\'s largest Country & Western scene, of a hundred skiffle bands, jazz bands and folk. Toxteth was the centre of the black music scene and influences poured in from the docks and the nearby US Airbase. A melting pot of energy and talent - something had to give and it did - bigger than anything that had gone before. How do you follow that? Well, with some years of quiet waters, Liverpool was ready to set sail again to conquer the world. Matthew Street was at the heart of things again and another scene was created out of yet another cellar - Eric\'s nightclub - with bands such as Deaf School, Echo and the Bunnymen and OMD leading the charge. But the City hadn\'t finished there. Frankie Goes to Hollywood, the Farm and the La\'s. There was Cream and Biscuits - well half a biscuit, and half a man - dance and surrealism and still it hasn\'t stopped. With Wombats, Zutons and Coral, the Liverpool scene keeps on reinventing itself. There are many featured bands, not named here.

This is the story about the resilience shown by the Indians when they were under the British Rule. They are already taxed to the bone by the British and their cronies, but when Jack Russell announces that he will double the Lagaan (tax) from all villagers, they decide to oppose it.

As the challenge is accepted, the interest grows and attracts Indians from all over the region, as well as the British from all over the country - as everyone gathers to see the 'fair play' that the British will display against their counter-parts, who are aided by none other than the sister, Elizabeth, of Captain Rusell.
