Cerys in Wonderland

Cerys Matthews marks the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by going down the rabbit hole with a series of specially themed tracks.

150 years after the publication of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Cerys Matthews goes down the rabbit hole with a series of specially themed tracks.

The featured music includes Joanna Newsom's Jackrabbits, The Unthanks' Queen of Hearts, Dinah Washington's Cry Me A River, Dave Brubeck's Alice in Wonderland and Card Cheat by The Clash. Cerys also takes a closer look at a very famous couple of tracks, inspired by Carroll's novels: Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit and I Am The Walrus.
