The Real Life Alice | Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland | Absolute History

With contributions from the likes of thespian Richard E. Grant, social commentator Will Self and author Philip Pullman, at once adoring and provocative this documentary casts a conflicted eye over the creation of Wonderland. Pouring through historical evidence and stories passed down through generations, hear the tale of Carroll’s first encounter with the three Liddell girls and the first telling of Alice’s tumble down the rabbit hole one summer’s afternoon in a boat upon the River Thames.

      Thanks for the links putting the programme in context, and rebalancing the weight of professional opinion as to Carroll’s motivations. Television always distorts reality, often by salacious editing and shouldn’t be viewed passively (in my opinion which has led me to not watch it at all). You Tube drawing from global producers, compounds this.
      But there was information new to me in there, so I considered it worth sharing.
