Gilbert & Sullivan: The Very Models

GB (c) 1998 Channel Four. PC: Bare Boards. D: Barry J.C. Purves. M: Arthur Sullivan. 16'. Puppet animation. Sous-titres francais, e-subtitles in Finnish. Viewed at Plevna 6, Tampere Film Festival 12 March 2005. Programme text: "Richard D'Oyly Carte wonders what he has done in introducing the temperamental Gilbert to the equally difficult Sullivan. Gilbert and Sullivan were pioneers of variety theatre and the founders of the world-famous Savoy Theatre". Another exciting and new imagery from Barry Purves.
