Walt Disney, in a film interview, discusses with John Fitzgerald an important part of his film-making background research. "No matter how fantastic the story or the characters may be", he says, "there has to be a basis of realism if you want to capture an audience." The programme is illustrated with specially filmed sequences of backroom activities on "The Sword and the Rose".
