  • Lewis Carroll

    Ken Campbell, Windsor Davies, John Bird and John Fortune star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. When Alice leans too close to the Looking Glass, she suddenly finds herself in a land of caustic characters and twisted logic – a back-to-front world where flowers can talk, Queens can run and a crown could depend on a game of chess... In her bid to become Queen of the Chess Board, Alice must escape the fearful Jabberwock and get to the eighth square. En route, she takes advice – and sometimes downright criticism – from such peculiar folk as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, and very helpful gnat. Even when she has passed this test, the...read more

    “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” ALICE “Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” THE WHITE QUEEN Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson penned under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. It tells the story of a little girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. Many feel it is perhaps the very first psychedelic novel. One can certainly draw parallels with the eating of magic mushrooms and apparently hallucinating, yet still it is chiefly a beloved children’s story....read more
