The Genius of Roald Dahl
British comedian, actor and author David Walliams explores the magical storytelling of Roald Dahl. To try and understand the great author’s special touch, David, a children's writer himself whose style has been compared to that of Dahl, traces some of the influences on his work. David discovers the Norwegian folktales that Dahl was read as a child, visits Dahl’s old sweetshop and school - reminders of his childhood naughtiness - and absorbs the atmosphere of Dahl’s legendary writing hut, where he locked himself away like Willy Wonka in his factory.
