Mark Cousins follows his 15-hour opus The Story Of Film with a comparatively bite-sized discourse on how world cinema has depicted childhood.
The result is a dizzying compilation of clips connected, rather preciously, by footage of his niece and nephew playing with marbles.
Cousins introduces excerpts from some 53 titles that range from the reassuringly familiar (E.T., Meet Me In St Louis) to the bafflingly obscure.
Our host’s lilting voiceover remains an acquired taste, but his boundless passion is never in question.
