This week, an exclusive interview with Ken Russell.
'Life is too short to make destructive films about people one doesn't like.... my films are meant to be constructive and illuminating. Whether they succeed or not is totally down to my being able to do it or not, but that's the intention. A lot of people say of the film I made on Tchaikovsky I must have hated him to have done it. Actually. I love Tchaikovsky very much - he was the composer who turned me on to classical music when I was 21. There's so much crazy mixed-up madness in human beings, but out of this can come beauty and goodness. This is a mystery that seems to me worth investigating in my films.'
