For me they are more than interesting opening a fascinating window into the life and work of an extraordinary man.

I met Ram Gopal on a number of occasions in London and if a little over the top, he was always deeply interesting and sincere when talking about dance and dancers and we had a shared interest in the life and work of Anna Pavlova.

Hearing him talk about Dame Alicia Markova brought also brought back a lot of memories having worked with her on projects at Ivy House and also having recorded a BBC radio programme with her in Pavlova's former home almost thirty years ago where I staged a "Pavlova Festival."

Thank you Christian for posting these films. I was deeply touched to see them again.
