WATERSHIP DOWN (1978) - podcast review out now


With the BBC's upcoming CGI version coming to television at Christmas, we decided to take a look back at the notorious 1978 animated version of Richard Adam's Watership Down. Directed by Martin Rosen, this gorgeously watercoloured version sees the trials of a group of rabbit's try and find a new home away from the dangers of their current warren, but doesn't shy away from the constant peril that marks Hazel, Fiver and Big Wig's journey. We discuss what makes this version so great - and yes, the violence does make it great - and our fears for the tempered down BBC version. Featuring the voice talents of John Hurt, Richard Briars, Zero Mostel and Lyn Farleigh.
