Main Description
Samuel Taylor Coleridge's epic poem is brought to life with an evocative mix of animated and real images which give this famous poem an exciting new dimension. This visually remarkable cinematic work is narrated by Sir Michael Redgrave, who gives an inspired reading of this literary classic. The program is presented in two parts. Part One is a biography of Samuel Taylor Coleridge from his orphaned childhood, through his vain attempts at being a dashing blade in 18th Century London. Part Two is a unique visualization of Coleridge's poem that takes us on a lonely voyage where time and space are as limitless as the imagination.
