Theseries "Pradhanmantri", scheduled to start on channel ABPNews Saturday, will showcase unheard stories of Indian politicsaround the time of independence.

"Historyis always an interpretation, and the stories which we are telling arethe ones which were not published, or were not talked about,"Kapur said at the launch of the show here.

"Thereare controversies which were buried, and some of them can stillcreate controversy," he said.

Initiallyconceptualised for 23 episodes, the weekly programme will chroniclethe history of India from 1947 to the present day.

"Weare careful about history, and often afraid to tell the truth. We arenot just sensitive about history, we try to hide it," Kapuradded.

ShaziZaman, group editor of ABP News, said the series would be highlytopical, as most of the issues covered affect the contemporarypolity.

"Theseries is about history that is alive and kicking," said Zaman.

Theshow will be aired every Saturday.
