Roger Manvell discusses with Edward Carrick, who has been designing film settings for twenty-one years, the work of the film art director. The discussion is illustrated with designs and models from a number of British films.
Those interested in this side of film production may like to visit the exhibition 'British Film Art' at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which opened on February 27.
At the end of the programme Roger Manvell gives a short appreciation of the Russian film director-designer Eisenstein who died last month.
