Films: B is for...

Body, The

Roy Battersby and Tony Garnett got some cash from Bri to make this oddball bio-educational film based on a book by early Tomorrow’s World mainstay Tony Smith. A lapse into dreary Living and Growing-style tedium was avoided by breakthrough in-body cinematography, an unusually poetic, crypto-socialist (yes, SOCIALIST) commentary read by Frank Finlay and Vanessa Redgrave, and a bonkers acapella soundtrack from Roger Waters and Ron Geesin, with memorable ditties such as Piddle in Perspex and More than Seven Dwarves in Penis Land.
