'With a crew from his radio program 'Late Night Live', the indomitable Phillip Adams beat a path through the chaos of India seeking out the unusual, the fascinating and the little known.  beginning with the seemingly off connection between the Parsi religious faith and the extravagances of Bollywood in Mumbai (Bombay), Adams slogged his way via road and rail, arguing with bureaucrats, perplexed by quota systems, and becoming very, very well acquainted with the large families that always found their way into his railway compartments.
A Billion Voices provides entry to a little known side of India: anarchic, chaotic, teeming, exquisite.'
