Alice in Wonderland: Curiouser and Curiouser

Saturday, 24 January 2015

The Daily Telegraph has recently done one of those 'best of' lists that causes conniptions in everyone.  This time it is a list of the best TV adaptations of books.  I am connipted by the absence from this top 20 of Jack Pulman's quite brilliant War and Peace, with Anthony Hopkins as Pierre.  I remember Dad telling me that the BBC hired the Yugoslav Army for the battle scenes.  I'm sure there must be production stories about that.  Also on the list is Jonathan Miller's 'Alice in Wonderland'.  It casued a bit of a fuss.  Here's a Garland cartoon that appeared at the time (1966), with Dad up a ladder (not a place I remember ever seeing him myself).
