What a weekend at Dance on Camera film fest! I saw that older doc on Makarova "A Class of Her Own" which I only had vague memories of, so was v. glad to see it again--esp. when Makarova herself showed up for the Q&A afterwards.
Classical Arts Showcase has shown portions of a documentary, looking as though it was down during the 80s, in which Markova (with a kind of beehive hairdo and looking rather like a close relation of the Queen) talks about her career. There are interviews with others from her era, and lots of excellent dance footage.
I never caught the name of the full documentary, but it seemed to be something made for British television. Would that be the same documentary you saw, 4mrdncr? Do you know whether it is available in dvd?
No, I saw a doc showing Natalia Makarova taking class. Not Alicia Markova whom I believe you are referring to above.
