Disc 1 is great, with Ravi explaining the structure of classical Indian music, his relationship with his students (including his daughter, who performs with him on disc 2) and his school; you'll also meet Mrs. Shankar and see their obviously loving relationship. Disc 2 is the reason you want this. It features two long ragas performed in concert, and they're quite astonishing. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is a personal hang up I have about film directors cutting to extreme close ups of musicians every time they smile or nod. Fortunately, that doesn't happen too often, but there it is. The concert was filmed in a beautiful place and the sound is also wonderful.
