Hans you’re are a amazing… I watched this film so long ago on PBS in the USA. I could never find who the people were who made it, even though I have a very old recording of it on VHS Tape (from the PBS show – Long ago and Far away – I think).

Thank you so much for posting this entry… now I have to see if I can find the old tape…
and if they still work.

Love you blog, and have your book Dream Worlds.
