Video: Book TV Adaptation - White Teeth by Zadie Smith

White Teeth
The succesful book White Teeth by Zadie Smith was turned into a television series. And was broadcasted by the British public-service television Channel 4 over four consecutive weeks, between 17 September 2002 and 8 October 2002.
The series was directed by Julian Jarrold, adapted by Simon Burke, featuring Om Puri, Phil Davis and Naomie Harris.

White Teeth consists of four self-contained short-stories, focusing on a major male character as he encounters a turning point in his life. The series spans 20 years of three cultures, chronicling the interlinked stories of three families over three generations in a multicultural area of north-west London from 1974 to 1992.

The four-hour saga also features leaps back to the Second World War, where Samad and Archie served together, and even further back to the 1857 Indian Mutiny.

 Here are 3 scenes.

Clara and Ryan expand their minds as Clara explains The End of The World to some hippies.


How Archie Met Clara - After a botched suicide attempt, Archie Jones decides to live it up and runs into Clara Bowden at The End of The World party.



Archie is told by his boss that his fiance Clara is not welcome at the company dinner. "I am not a 'racialist'".
