A few days ago it was the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice In Wonderland, so here’s a celebration.

Good compilation of clips from the wonderful and sadly little seen film, Dreamchild. (deduct points for terrible song) Directed by Gavin Miller. Screenplay – Dennis Potter. SFX – Jim Henson’s Creature Workshop (and they’re marvelously grotesque creations!).

Alice Is Still In Wonderland – great, little radio doc on the lasting legacy of the book introduced by none other than Siouxsie Sioux, with contributions by Jonathan Miller and Tim Burton.

There have been various explanations for the imagery in AIW. Here’s a neurological take on it.
