Untold Stories: Hymn is a touching memoir of music in childhood, directed by Nadia Fall, with an evocative score by George Fenton.
Untold Stories: Cocktail Sticks, directed by Nicholas Hytner, revisits some of the themes and conversations of Alan Bennett’s memoir A Life Like Other People’s. A son talks to his dead father as his mother yearns for a different life. It’s funny, tender and sad.
