From Dr Caligari to Hannibal Lector ,
Hollywood has had an infatuation with the screen psychiatrist. In a heady cocktail of drama, music and personal insight, Professor Anthony Clare analyses this obsession and takes in the four archetypal celluloid shrinks:
Dr Dippy (madderthan his patient); Dr Know-All (convinced he is infallible); Dr Evil (wicked manipulator of the mind); and Dr Love (combination of insight, compassion and sex appeal which turns patients to jelly).
Producer Clare McGinn. Rptd Sat at 5.00pm
