This is fine, a well intentioned and lovingly created early TV piece from Ken Russell. It is a little uneven and although to some extent that became a trademark of the director, here it is probably budget restraints that mean some scenes look less 'cinematic' than others. The music and dance sequences are immaculate and I guess that is the main thing, its just that I rather tire of the repeated success and failure scenario. The children (and a lot of them) are very well dealt with and appear very natural. Vivian Pickles does very well as the leading player and dances as well as is required, baring in mind that Duncan was herself no great dancer in the traditional sense.
