Alice Through the Looking Glass (BBC Children’s Classics)
- By: Lewis Carroll
- Narrated by: Ken Campbell, John Bird, Windsor Davies, and others
- Length: 1 hr and 49 mins
- Original Recording
When Alice's wish to visit the Looking Glass world comes true, she can't resist delving deeper and deeper into a land of caustic characters and twisted logic. So begins a game of chess on a grand scale, where the inhabitants of each square have their own set of rules. In her bid to become Queen of the Chess Board, Alice takes advice - and sometimes downright criticism - from such peculiar folk as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn and very helpful gnat.
An enjoyable adaptation.

a review of hattie naylor's dramatisation
Hattie Naylor's BBC adaptation from 2000 is execellent, and although some of the events are switched around from the novel, it works well. The cast, particularly the actor who played Alice are fantastic. Naylor also adapted Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland in 1996 for the BBC, which was also very good.
