BBC Radio 4's season celebrating 100 years of Peter Pan
Peter and Wendy
Mon 27 - Fri 31Dec 2004
Alan Bennett brings to life the story of the Darling children and their trip to Never Never Land.
Into the night nursery of the Darling children flies Peter Pan, a motherless half-magical boy.
He teaches the children how to fly and whisks them through the skies to Never Never Land, a fantastical place peopled with mermaids, wolves, pirates and the dastardly Captain Hook.
There, with the fairy Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys the children experience a series of hair-raising adventures before flying home to their nursery and a reunion with their family.
