A film re-creation by JONATHAN MILLER
The first showing for nearly 20 years of Jonathan Miller 's remarkable interpretation of Lewis Carroll 's masterpiece. In its claustrophobic and at times frightening view of Victorian adult society, the film has none of the whimsy so often generated by Alice. Commissioned for the Music and Arts Department it's a film which deserves its status as one of the most original and imaginative dramas of the last 50 years. Cheshire Cat PRIMROSE and MARK ALLINGTON

Introduced by Cliff Morgan After a career as a presenter, producer and Controller of Programmes,
Sir Huw Wheldon , who died in March, became one of the BBC's most loved and respected managing directors.
Responsible for forming many of the BBC's present programme policies, he instigated such series as Civilisation, Alistair Cooke 's History of America and Bronowski's Ascent of Man.
With an eye for talent, he also gathered around him a band of exceedingly creative programme-makers.
Above all he was a Welshman with a sense of fun and, as he demonstrates in conversation with Frank Gillard ,
Michael Parkinson and Bill Moyers , an unrivalled and gifted raconteur. Film editor DAVID LEE

'It gets 'em when you look kind of casually soulful and sad, and sing about sorrowful things. Sometimes when I'm singing a song of that sort I cry inwardly.'
'I've become a star through a little black disc with a hole in the middle.'
'Those girls scare the wits out of me ... I got a scar right round my neck where one of 'em caught me.'
'I do get a bit nervous at times. I went to a psychiatrist once. He had a bash at me - couldn't find anything.'
