One Pair of Eyes: Alan Garner

 All Systems Go! was broadcast in 1973 as part of the BBC's documentary series One Pair of Eyes.

feels more like a beautiful, art-house essay film, full of folklore and landscape, and soundtracked by Malcolm Clarke of the Radiophonic Workshop.  It not only puts Red Shift completely into perspective (having been made a whole six years earlier) but it is also an essential viewing for fans of Garner.
