Ken Russell

pennylonglane's memory of 1st January 1962 - 1st January 1964

I remember watching the excellent series of Monitor programmes directed by Ken Russell and introduced by Huw Wheldon. I was a young teenager, deeply impressed by these wonderful films. They are only available on DVDs from the US - it's scandalous that we can't view them here. I would so love to see them again. The only one broadcast by the BBC is the one about Elgar - a masterpiece but please let's see them all!
