Celebrated in two respects as one of the greatest but also one of the most dangerous British authors of all time, Phillip Pullman’s legendary novels including the “dark materials” series have been captivating adults and children alike for more than two decades. Still succeeding in creating an atmosphere of the fantastical to this day, this BBC documentary explores what made Pullman’s novels such a success and delves into the author’s very own dark materials.

Alan Yentob meets the esteemed novelist in Oxford and investigates how the inspiring middle school teacher became such a literary phenomenon and such an outspoken critic of organised religion.
