Profound darkness and little light, 15 July 2013
The title of this documentary says it all. Night...darkness...A profoundly disturbing but nevertheless very valid and absorbing documentary. There were new insights, even for lovers of his music (if not of the man) and Tony Palmer has found yet more to add to his seemingly inexhaustible source of Britten material. But one does not come away feeling in any way that this has been a comfortable viewing experience.
