The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl
31 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was quite an essential programme to watch both before seeing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and seeing the original Willy Wonka film. Basically this documentary explained about the great stories and books by one of children's favourite writers. It also gave examples of the books that became films (but why wasn't Matilda mentioned, because it's American?). They had clips from Tales of the Unexpected, Willy Wonka, Danny The Champion of the World, The BFG, The Witches and James and the Giant Peach. With contributions from Tim Brooke-Taylor, Tim Burton (director of the Willy Wonka remake), Brian Cant, Sarah Cawood, Julie Dawn Cole (the original Veruca Salt), Bernard Cribbins, Tessa Dahl (Roald's daughter), Johnny Depp (the new Willy Wonka), Pam Ferris, Rusty Goffe (an Oompa Loompa), Freddie Highmore (the new Charlie), Kirsten O'Brien, Bill Paterson (Bruno's Dad in Witches), Nicolas Roeg, Toyah Willcox, David Wood, and narrated by Jim Broadbent. Very good!
