As part of the series “Great Lives,” the half hour features artist Gerald Scarfe, who actually worked for the Disney company as the production designer of Hercules; Who Framed Roger Rabbit animation director Richard Williams and major entertainment historian Brian Sibley (whose also wrote the current BBC Radio 2 documentary series, The Musical, which is hosted this week by Whoopi Goldberg).

The program approaches its subject with a wry, detached style, with some controversies addressed, but overall the impact of Walt Disney on the world is met with awe and respect.

    Thanks for the heads up on this – I have sent the link home to have a listen later. Also reminds me I have the Neal Gabler biography of Walt to read, after having read the official version, written by Bob Thomas, a few years ago.
