Rudyard kipling A Secret Life (DVD)
Revealing documentary film lifting the lid on the private life, devastating secrets and battles of the acclaimed author behind the classics If and The Jungle Book.
Rudyard Kipling is one of the best loved authors in the world. Intriguingly, his work has not always been critically well-received, yet his public popularity has remained constant.
The programme links interviews with key contributors who include Kipling biographers Harry Ricketts and Andrew Lycett with dramatic reconstructions of scenes from the three short stories.
Powerfully portraying Kipling's deepest imaginative reactions to the loss of his children, this programme evokes the extraordinary intersection between the public and the private in Kipling's life and work.
