Notes & Reviews:
Children and childhood fascinated Britten throughout his life and inspired some of his greatest music. John Bridcut's compelling film sheds light on the composer's own inner child through interviews with several of Britten's former companions and muses, including his 'Young Apollo', Wulff Scherchen, and David Hemmings, the first boy to play Miles in The Turn of the Screw. Broadcast on BBC in 2004 with many repeats. Looks at Britten's controversial relationship with children. Interviews with the three main boys that he was close to. Book written to accompany the original broadcast of the Film. Published by Faber & Faber.Notes & Reviews:
