I still think this was the best version [Sep. 17th, 2010|09:55 pm]

I stumbled on all this while looking for something totally unrelated (doing a book outline, oddly): a montage from the old BBC 'Chronicles of Narnia'. The music is infinitely better than the Disney version. Not sure how it would stand up now, but it had the genuine sense of magic that the new ones sadly lack.




That Geoffrey Burgon could write a tune... (thought I think this not the original). Ah, the days when ITV (well Granada) could do drama --and kick the BBC's ass.

I watched that version of Narnia on public television as a child. I think it's more appealing and earnest by many miles, from an age before CGI effects held up viewers' foundering imaginations.
