A new two-part radio version of Ingmar Bergman's Academy Award-winning 1982 film about a Swedish family at the start of the twentieth century. The critically acclaimed original work is one of the longest films in cinematic history, and is a beguiling drama about childhood where imagination is found to be a passport out of dread and into mystery. Adapted for radio by Sharon Oakes.

Episode 1:

Through the eyes of ten-year-old Alexander, we witness the delights and conflicts of the Ekdahl family, a sprawling theatrical family in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Sweden. Ingmar Bergman intended Fanny and Alexander to be his swan song, and it is the legendary director's warmest and most autobiographical film that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with immense joy and sensuality.

Songs composed and performed by Carl Prekopp.
