abstract
Children and childhood fascinated Britten throughout his life and inspired some of his greatest music. John Bridcut's compelling film sheds light on the composer's own inner child through interviews with several of Britten's former companions and muses, including his 'Young Apollo', Wulff Scherchen, and David Hemmings, the first boy to play Miles in The Turn of the Serew.
