A series of four programmes 1 :Getting There
Presented by Michel Peissel
The tiny Kingdom of Zanskar lies in the highest inhabited valley in the world. Ringed round by the Himalayas its two kings, 12,000 people and seven monasteries are the guardians of a now vanishing, Tibetan way of life that has remained unchanged for more than a thousand years. Snowed in for three quarters of the year, this frozen desert is a land where nobody starves and violence is virtually unknown. To get there, a BBC film crew walked 400 miles with 50 horses and a ton of stores to keep them for their three-month stay.

In this extravagant portrait of a great composer, director Russell combines his restless imagination with a factual analysis of Mahler's life. A series of interlinked flashbacks show Gustav as a young boy, torn between his parents' ambitions for him and his longing to compose. His later struggles for recognition and against anti-Semitism underpin this vivid recreation of a great artist. A work of undeniable power and fascination, shown now in a version slightly adapted for TV by the director.
