Ken Russell's Self Portrait of an Enfant Terrible from SouthBank

I thought I'd never find this! Ken's interpretation of his own autobiography for The South Bank Show presented by Melvyn Bragg. Who fans will remember his great interview with Pete Townshend from the 1970's in which Mr Bragg wears a duck egg blue ruffled tuxedo shirt. Great 80's opening theme and décor.

For those new to Ken, it is worth taking a half hour so and watch this (part 5 was pulled in the US unfortunately but is visible here in the UK). Fans who have not seen this here it is! You'll see many of Ken's rare early films for the BBC REJOICE IN JOYOUS CELEBRATION!!

This is something very special.
