Description by OLDIES.com:

WHISPERS THROUGH THE WILLOWS (52 mins) 'Whispers through the Willows' charts the life of Kenneth Grahame, creator of Mr. Toad, Ratty, Badger and Mole. On the surface a spectacular success, conflicts in Grahame's life which were left unresolved would lead to tragedy. CHRONICLING NARNIA (75 mins) Find out about the wondrous land of Narnia, and discover the secrets behind its inhabitants such as the White Witch and Aslan. Mixing exclusively shot location footage, fantastic illustrations and CGI with a wide variety of interviews, we bring both the worlds of C.S. Lewis and Narnia to life for children of all ages. THE SECRETS OF THE GOLDEN COMPASS (173 mins) This is ArtsmagicDVD's extensive exploration into the extraordinary phenomenon of Philip Pullman's 'Golden Compass Trilogy'. With Pullman himself guiding us on our journey through his other worlds, we are provided with an insider's view of this controversial epic.

Product Description:

The post-war period has been a boom time for writers of fantasy, with sales of the genre outstripping all other forms of fiction. All the writers included in this collection are international best sellers, with C.S. Lewis clocking up a monumental 120 million, Kenneth Grahame coming in with 25 million, and Philip Pullman, a relative new-comer to the scene, achieving 15 million. None of these writers set out to do anything more than tell stories. What they all shared was the belief that the telling of tales was one of the most important things that a human being could do.
